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

The electric car modding scene will be very interesting one day I think. Imagine a P100D motor in one of these

They already have a Model 3 dual motor in the works, probably a performance variant too. But those will be up around m3 money

Spare head unit + spare battery and desk speakers = really nice quality portable boombox. More of a status update but sounds so good have to share. 

[EDIT] must remember to get soldering iron while I'm here.

That’s pretty dope. What ohm rating are the speakers? Most car audio stuff is 4 ohms, and desk stuff is 8.

Maybe I should watch them again, damn it's been a long time. The last video I watched from Mighty Car Mods was turbocharging a Miata.

I would still buy one of these over an M4, even though it's got a manual option, mainly because I don't want to deal with the headache that is a german car. i mean i don't think you could beat 460hp of naturally aspirated old school v8.

It says 4-8 so maybe 4. It's just a pair of old Warfdale speakers I bought a while ago.

Just rewatched the video. I think they are a lot better not doing car audio haha. A few corners cut in the vid ;). Fun what you can do with a few bucks though.

A few things I picked up on, which would be fairly trivial is to

- Get rid of the paint for the ground for the amp

- Use the audio outs for the CD drive

- get rid of the wiring floating about in the sub (You could probably port it but it doesn't matter so much)

 

To be fair it probably sounds as good as it will though (Especially with Moog's music). Their other videos are pretty cool I've watched a lot. This one is kind of outdated because you can pick up a head unit for less than a pc.

Is rhino liner finally good or does that stuff still split and peel in to oblivion?

Seen no splits on the Frontier's bed liner, but there some bubbles, though most likely from the crazy heat down here in the South.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
