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

that's a tough but cool track, very fast. also that overlay response is like instantaneous -- what are you (or he?) using to read the data? Not to mention it is just a great looking overlay in general.

its all my stuff (including pads and tires), he's far too cheap to spend money on anything like timing apps or whatever.

 

The app is RaceChrono, obd2 dongle is the Kiwi3, and gps is the XGPS160, camera is a gopro 3 black, that the z06 guy gave me cause he got tired of watching my shakey vids  (I'm too cheap to buy a camera) :D

 

for the most part I think I'm kinda likeing racechrono more right now, but HLT had a thing where it'd overlay the max and min speed of every straight and corner... I don't think racechrono does that... but it shows that within the app in the data review section.  I wish it had it in the vid too.  along with which gear is being used... HLT showed that too...

Some photos I took during the process of my less than $100 head gasket change. $43 head set from work and $45 for the machine shop to throw the head on the belt sander, several hours of work and cleaning and a lot of cursing. This was the least I could do for this poor engine; I honestly don't care about it that much because I have a $4,000 long block waiting to go in, but I'm really surprised it was still running as well as it was for having a blown head gasket for over a year. I only did the head gasket as it was absolutely necessary if I wanted to get ANY more miles out of this thing while I get the rest of the parts for the new engine. I watched as the machinist took SEVERAL passes on the head deck and he and I both agreed that it was VERY warped, especially between cylinders 2 and 3. Either way, cleaned up the block deck and pistons with WD-40 and scotch brite, put a new gasket and put the head back on. Tons of reassembly, a new oil drain plug/valve, and a new battery (from sitting in the garage for only 3 days smh) and it drives great, definitely gained back a lot of compression (you can hear the starter motor actually putting in some work now), no more magically disappearing coolant and a healthy amount of power gained back throughout the rev range and especially at higher RPMs.

 

After the job the only thing I really need to do is adjust the valve lash; after all that cleaning, machining, and reassembly one or more of the valves have excessive lash and have a pretty audible ticking. But I can solve that with some appropriately sized bucket shims. My built engine gave me loads of experience but nothing teaches you better than doing complex work like this on an in-service engine that you rely on. Overall it was still nerve-racking but I kept my cool and got it done, and still have a car to drive to work on Monday :)

Shaving the head down also bumps up CR a little bit so you've got a slightly faster motor than before.

I really like the look of the newer one we can't have in the US because CUV everything.

right it's so annoying

 

also dammit now I'm looking at Chevrolet Prizms again

 

 

Might not be ideal for moving but I'm sure I could fit a lot in the back seats up to the window sills and trunk. I'm not taking any furniture. Just me, my clothes and some rabbits.
the largest thing I might take might be a bed in a box and my tv.
The PC and Monitor don't need too much space. I'm rocking a Cooler Master Silencio 352 for the case lol but for a 1,000 mile move

Considering I had the suspension before I had the car I can finally say I got it installed.  Hoping it will settle another little bit but I'm happy with it.

I have the same shocks and springs on the focus. It definitely took a bit to settle, so it should get a bit lower with time. This was right after install, it's selled about 1/4" (6mm) since then.

what about F22 M2 bumper?

I already edited my post. On widebody cars they both can look good, but on non M cars (I've seen an E46 Compact with a 1M replica front bumper and holy shit was that ugly) it just doesn't look good... A lot of people throw 1M replica bumpers on their 1 series here, and without the wider fenders, it looks so fucking bad.

Sadly that V10 is being used, and it would make for a really ugly swap. That's not exactly a sexy V10.
