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

Oh, I didn't know you could get rims for that price... Thanks for the suggestion

7th gen Celica 16" wheels look pretty nice on anything.

Why?

To attach a floaty to the wrench.

 

I use a 3/4" wrench to adjust the legs on our dock where I inevitably drop the wrench at least once per season and they're a real pain in the ass to find when the water is 40°; and way worse when it's 4ft deep and 40°. We have a floaty on the level, but there's no good way to attach it to the wrench, so I bought a wrench specifically for the task, and drilled a hole as a way of attaching the floaty.

 

And before you bring up the tether ready tools, I looked at those options but am not as thrilled about the way those attach.

Makes perfect sense to me. Better engrave it "floaty mc wrench wrench".

Well I offically hate HPA and their stupid intake manifold. My car gets a misfire code and a mil light every time when it does a cold start preventing me from getting the stupid evap monitor ready and now I cant even get the piece of shit inspected. It costs 600 just to get the stocl manifold put on and then I had to pay for a new revised manifold. Im done with this car Im selling it once I get this shit over with. 

 

TLDR: HPA sucks a great big bag of monkey dicks

British yes, BMW...ehhh tough call but I'd be inclined to place the BMW over VAG products solely for the interior quality alone. When you put the same painted buttons in your VW and Audi lines that are in a Chevy Cruze and the paint rubs off them the same way....

 

And anyone remember VAG and their 'soft touch' materials? More like gooey sticky mess!

To be fair this is a HPA manifold problem not a VAG problem. Simply no one really tunes flapless manifolds that well for the TSI. I'm not that impressed with BMW interior's or exteriors to be honest. Lexus IS series cars have a much nicer interior in my opinion. 🤷

Question to all of yous, how important is the undertray (a plastic cover that "protects" the engine bay from underneath)? Due to at least 3 of the screws holding it disappearing, a third of it has disappeared so the right side drags along the road now 😂. Any point in getting a new one? I've currently just taped the right side back on so it would stop scraping along the road. 

 

I would remove it as it's just cover but can't reach any of the screws holding the left side without lifting the car. 


Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...

that depends where you live how heavy they salt ( if winter driving ). you wont damage anything major unless you hit a big rock. ive seen some people fit in alu sheets but they tend to have 300+++ HP and drive like they stole everything inside the car

It helps with fuel economy for sure- depending on car can also help with cooling and potentially even some protection. Grab some zip ties and secure it back up there

does it really ? do you actually get that much drag/turbulence that ur MPG does down to any noticeable level ?, genuine question as i've never even thought about that nor care to be completely honest but never the less interesting
