Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

But then that literally goes back to my original argument of OEM’s not needing vacuum pumps.. 

NHTSA has certain safety standards, one of which is something about the brakes being able to stop the vehicle in the event of the engine failing and if the engine fails while in boost, which the little ecoboost engines are almost always in boost, then you may not have enough vaccum reserve to safely stop the vehicle. Also Ford may be running some turbo stuff with vacuum controls (waste gate maybe) and need it for that. On the 2.0T Fusion the vacuum pump supplied the brake booster, a line tapped off to a solenoid which fed vacuum to two other devices somewhere else behind the engine that I didn't care about, probably a waste gate and probably something with evaporative emissions which many car makers use vacuum to test.

Dont think I've ever had such a successful day working on a car.

Exhaust is fitted, only snapped 1 bolt that wasnt even needed.

Battery tie down has been fixed and now has a new alternator belt.

Honda with the Civic turbos uses a valve that creates a venturi effect when air (boost) flows by. Creates vacuum for the brake booster and evap system. Thats why theres so many evap lines, theres two places where the evap system can purge. Each of those locations have two lines going to them. Type Rs use their own vacuum pump, and the other models use electronic assist. 

 

NA motors that run on atkinsons cycle or have cylinder deactivation sometimes require vacuum pumps, depending on the design and programming.

Seems a little loud and coarse, but if you like it that's all that matters. The exhaust on my Celica sounds almost exactly like stock at idle, only gets a little louder under acceleration.

All jokes aside, good job. The simple jobs are always the ones that take all day.

One of my mates had a Type-R, he accidentally downshifted to 2nd on the motorway trying to race someone and blew it up 😂

Everything came undone as it should (apart from that one bolt) and the new bits bolted up and lined up perfectly. Really surprised me even for a 14 year old car. Next jobs are to tackle the wobbly suspension and uh, lack of stopping ability

Infact, I found a picture one of the previous owners sent me. This is my car maybe about a decade and 3(?) owners ago, sporting it's original wheels, RC041's upfront, and wider RC042's on the rear.

 

 

And this is the car last summer, sporting different BBS, these are RS740/741
