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

No point, itd spend more time broken than working. Wonder how strong that box is cause the standard ones are wank

As do a lot of abarths lol, this isn't a daily driver with a dog box.

Straight cut gears are super easy to make, and are usually stronger than most. Just depends on the manufacturer, 8.500 is pretty cheap for a dog box so... But even if it breaks I'm sure it's easy to upgrade as most are. I doubt mini actually makes it for that cheap due to R&D costs.

Yesterday I finished the front upgrade on my R33 GTS-T suspension. 

I replaced my old Tein NR coilovers with Tein Flex Z's and set them about an inch lower than my NR's were. 

I also replaced the upper camber arms, lower control arms and the tension rods with adjustable arms from Driftworks. 

 

Im working this weekend but on Monday will be finishing the rear coilover install, rear traction rods, rear camber arms and hicas eliminator kit all from Driftworks as well. 

Then R33 needs to go for an alignment. All the arms are rod ends so should be a fairly stiff ride when its all done!

 

Sorry couldnt do any pictures installed since it was about 9:30pm last night I finished and was dark :P

Yup. It's got a turbo, suspension and mostly cosmetics. Interior is nice too, seats right hold you in.

A little something I've had for a long time now, since Jan 97 to be exact.
It had been sitting for a few years when I finally decided to either do something with it or forget it - So I did something. The pics show what shape it was in before the work was done  and after, wasn't a pretty sight at the time work began but turned out well.
More work to be done but right now it's miles better than before.

Basic specs:

91 S10 4x4

4.3 Ltr V6, 5-speed trans

Porche Cayenne Turbo S 1st gen - Looks fun

Those are some famous last words there. These cars aren't known for value or reliability new. I'm sure they are bound to be worse on the used market.

I have no recommendations for your summer car, but I might suggest a 2004-2006 Subaru Impreza (not the STI model) for a winter car. They are available pretty cheap in extremely good condition, they have cheap and easy repairs, they are reliable, people think they're cool, and with just a little bit of practice you can have some serious fun driving one on low traction surfaces, like back roads in winter.

 

By not getting the STI model, the car is waaayyyy cheaper so you can bash the car a little more without feeling guilty about it, but if you decide you want a nicer car, you can build one up to be the same as or better than the STI model, possibly cheaper than buying an actual STI model.

Shoutout to the CCC going bad in my parents' E60 5-series...smh. $1000-1600 fix supposedly. And I can't even inspect the capacitors (which I suspect are the culprit) without ripping the dash apart to remove the computer.

Agree. Get a Toyota/Honda if you want reliable and easy/cheap to repair. Maybe a Mazda but some of those rust really badly.

After doing the front a few days ago, I finished the rear coilovers and arms install this morning, took her out for a drive and she definately needs some adjusting! 

Will do a final adjustment on the height once the camber & toe is all adjusted and the new sideskirts, lip & diffuser are on. Really gonna need some new wheels with a staggered fitment and the proper offset as well

When I first set the car down after putting my coils on I had accidentally set it to hella slammed. Then later when making adjustments didn't account for how inboard the rear dampers are on the control arm and I had the rear higher than it was stock when I set it back down. I was trying to maths out the stock rake of the car since I liked the stock rake but not the stock height. Took me a few tries to get it all right but in the end all 4 are at the correct heights side to side and front to back and the stock rake is preserved.
