  1. Intel generally has a very high standard for their processes. hence their 10nm struggle.
  2. the VC-T engine is currently a 4cylinder I believe (2.0L? maybe?) I know it debuted in a crossover but they will be putting it in more cars afaik edit: the VC-T engine is in the 2019 QX50. makes 268hp and gets 31 mpg on the highway (24 in the city). pretty impressive for a largish car.
  3. $400 garret 2554 anyone? https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=669453
  4. 300 dolla? wat still expensive. but cool. I'll be interested in external GPU enclosures when they are $150 lol
  5. how much dough?
  6. you actually can... it's not pretty though. 1. make sure there are no pending updates on the system (i.e. it downloaded and is waiting to install) 2. in C:\windows\system32 you will see a file called "wuaueng.dll" 3. take ownership of this file. 4. Change the permissions to allow you to edit the file. 5. append anything to the file to invalidate it.. I typically just add ".old" to the end the service will never start up again... I work at a place where the people are pretty stubborn and don't want to use SCCM to push out windows updates like most places but also don't want PC's to auto update. so basically one of my projects was to figure out how to disable it... this is what I came up with. has worked so far lol
  7. People will rave about the VR38DETT in the future the same way they rave about the RB26 and the 2JZ now I bet. i wonder how the smaller VR engine does? No one talks about it. The one that makes like ~400hp in the infiniti’s
  8. if you didn't see this coming, lol. It was just a matter of *when*
  9. i was thinking more "STARS" tho stress is more logical. clearly I think more positively
  10. also by the way @Real_PhillBert thanks. I didn't actually see your pic earlier it didn't fix itself. You appears you now have a Ford "Nocus"
  11. you should put both the ST and the RS badges "F-350 ST RS" has a nice ring to it
  12. I wanted to wash my fithy car this past weekend but I ended up being sick as a dog. had 102F fever all day saturday lol Tried mounting the NH-D15 to my head but it wasn't enough. /s In all seriousness I'll probably wash it after work tom if I feel a bit better. still a little yuck today
  13. KickStarter Ossic Disapears

    this would be more of the "Exit scam" type. which is when a product or service is offered/promised, backed by investors, but then the company mysteriously backs out with all of the investors money. Perhaps not even having a product in the first place. Which theoretically kickstarter is a really easy way to get away with if you write your legal policies correctly. @Misanthrope
  14. since on a miata the engine has to come out in order to do oil pan seals, and the new engine was weeping a tiny bit. we changed those out before it went in. still dry at the pan at least. So At least we know I can do that and it actually work just that dog gone valve cover... funny thing is no one else complains about it ever on forums or anything. Only me. But I even did it that one time with the other guy helping me put the engine in and it still weeped oil lol. maybe they just don't notice. (it's really a small amount.. like maybe .1 quart every oil change.. it just weeps a little at the front and since the engine tilts back a little it runs down the right side all the way to the back of the engine and leaks down from there.
