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

I recently bought a subaru impreza wrx 2013. I want to tell you about her. This is a great car. This is my first car. After the purchase, it was required to inspect the audio system, since no music was playing on the right side of the car. For some time I was looking for the cause of the breakdown. I needed a power diagram which I soon found at http://subaru.manymanuals.com/cars/2013-impreza/user-manual-7006/3 and found there SUBARU 2013 IMPREZA USER MANUAL. This helped me a lot, since I worked as an auto electrician for some time and with the help of the instructions I quickly solved the problem.

It depends how much of the car you want to work. Will it start and drive everyday? Probably. Will everything in the car work that should work...probably not.

It's because they haven't been properly looked after. Toyota are the best at making beater cars IMO.

that's true. Toyota's are also more simple. But it's pay to play I guess. 

I've been thinking about finding/getting a VW Touraeg with the 3.0L diesel recently. It'd be pretty efficient for my long commute, it's nice inside, + I could tow smaller things if I needed (like my Miata lol) and such. 

Bit more money than like finding an old lexus but a lot more useful as far as daily drivers go... just more expensive to maintain. but the core parts of them (engine/drivetrain) seem pretty solid. 

also since diesel gate happened something like that will never exist here again in the US so I feel like might as well experience it whilst I can.

My TransAm rev's pretty high for a SBC.  Its nothing new, but most people don't build a 350 and decided to spin it to 7k+.

 

But this 3rd gen Camaro takes the cake.  I have admired it for years.

 

Its a destroked LS7 out of a Vette. 8500rpm and 700hp+.

 

And. It. Sounds. Glorious!

 

I've always wondered what a higher revving LS would sound (being the LS7 the one that revs the most out of the factory IIRC, at *just* 7000) and that is a great example.

I tip my hat to you for the fact that you're also spinning your SBC to 7k+.

"Everyone dies alone. But if you meant something to someone, if you helped someone, or loved someone, if even a single person remembers you, then maybe you never really die. And maybe, this isn't the end at all."

welp, on October 14th I finally after a year of actually driving (and trying) to get my license I did it, I passed my road test.
Officially I got it on the 15th but eh whatever because that's when I was able to get in and go do the payment portion of the licensing.

So now the 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear can stop sitting and actually get to be a daily driver lmao

I can't help but think if the Leyland P76 was more sucessful in Australia/New Zealand and were kept in production for much longer, they could have found their way to the North American market where I think they could've been quite sucessful (especially the 4.4L V8 powered ones).

You'd like the EHT pads then, little higher friction rating than most off the shelf pads, very smooth and quiet, basically zero dust, great non slippery linear brake feel, and they recover from heat fade without problems like loss of friction or glazing. I've been running a set on my daily Mazda since late 2015 and they've got more than 1/2 pad left, I'm not especially gentle on the brakes, my commute is about 25 miles a day with a roughly 70/30 highway/surface street mix and then some weekending driving here and there as well. I'd guess I've put about 40,000 miles on the pads maybe more. With 183,000 on it now they're probably going to outlast the car.
