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

My guess would be pressure relief so you could safely fill it without having to wait for it to cool down, but it is also my understanding that the whole point of coolant reservoir is to allow it to be filled/checked without having to hassle with the coolant in the radiator (i.e. coolant under pressure). What is the year, make, and model?

Its a Peugeot 407 2006. The engine is the 2.0 HDI. I guess that would make sense as the expansion tank in these engines is pressurised with the system. I should probably close the valve ? (Yes i'm not that bright if this is obvious sorry in advance).

Today I've enjoyed the weather, roads and car, haven't had time for a proper road trip in quite a while.

Ok looks like your definition of a bolt on is vastly different then what most people would define it as. I’m going to end the conversation here with you. Next you’ll tell me rebuilding the engine is a bolt on. 😂

Technically is right? Unbolt the stuff inside the engine and bolt in the stronger shiny parts xD

True, though “bolt on” isn’t a literal definition, and extremely vague and changes depending which car community you ask. Common consensus is power adders (Forced induction), swapping power adders, or opening the engine isn’t considered a “bolt on” mod. However there is some leeway. Depending on which forum you go to and which car you talk about. It’s an extremely vague term. 
 

Swapping out the entirety of the rear end for completely different rear end would be more of a rear end conversion then a simple “bolt on” mod. Usually refers to a basic mod that’s easy to do and easy to undo. Like I said very vague lots of caveats to it, though there are some general consensus between groups.

Even better than bolt on are glue on mods like fake vents and turbo badges. That's the real bang for the buck!

Actually I asked a guy who had a fake looking "sports exhaust" on his FIESTA if he knows that it will reduce his hp?  Which he replied with yes, he knows,  but it does sound better!

IMHO as long as custom fabrication isn't involved on the end user's part. It's a bolt on

 

If you can take the part directly off the shelf, and bolt it up, it's a bolt on

Yeah not a literal definition of what a bolt on is. If you bothered to actually look it up you’d understand that, but ok kid think what you want. Still going to laugh at you. 😂

It’s almost like “bolt on” is defined by the amount of work something is

 

Yes both modifying an exhaust and adding a turbo both CAN add power.

 

But one of these is a heck of a lot easier than the other. Hence why typically exhaust is referred to as “a bolt on” but a turbo isn’t.

 

the question is where do we draw the line? It’s almost like it needs to be amount of energy expended by a human being to accomplish the task xD

You're trying too hard to think you're correct, just so you know.

Usually a mix of work expended to do the modification and the type of modification. 
 

Turbo swap =/= bolt on

engine rebuild =/= bolton 

transmission work is a bit questionable 🤷🏻‍♀️


Some consider it a bolt on to change the torque converter some don’t really up for debate. Most car forums have the same consensus that opening the engine/forced induction is not a bolt on. I go by the majority consensus based on the various forums I read.

I don't need your validation to justify my position.

Lemme ask you a question, if I swap my intake manifold from stock to a performance variant, is that a bolt on?

Anyways, shocker about your attitude on this. I'll sum it up, you don't know where to draw the line other than you want it to be what you want.


You'll probably say yes, swapping an intake is a bolt on.

Don’t consider opening the engine “bolt on”. By that logic power adders like a turbo or supercharger are a “bolt on”.

Which is no harder than a super charger.

 

Issa bolton.

uhuh So when you race someone do you say oh its just bolt ons to describe your car when someone says what did you do to it, or do you say "I supercharged it", or "I swapped the turbo" either way not going to change your mind so im done here you can wallow in you retardation all you want because you clearly missed the point.

(Yes because a super charger is a bolt on, guess what you can hear it too, it's not a surprise)

Hey I haven't been the one throwing around insults (yet) just because I need to figure out a way to justify why my car is losing races.

 

Oh well, I guess I'll never know what it's like to be you, always correct in my thinking. It's a struggle for us lesser mortals.

so as a slightly early anniversary gift my boyfriend wanted to know what I wanted and I showed him a couple window mounts for a phone and he got me this one and man I love it, can't wait to use it more.

This past summer actually, Minnesota joined a few other states in having a law on the books requiring hands free. For other reasons too it's nice to have that though.

 

It goes nicely with this other thing I got at Target with a mix of a $5 off price match and a few cents off for my team member discount.

that's funny it lists a gift card as "NONE"
