What Japanese economy cars had turbos in the 70s?.

Alright, so I’ve given it thought and a car with a big v8 (doesn’t have to be American, but it’s the most plentiful option) would be quite fun and a change of pace for what I normally drive. However, I would like it to have pretty good handling. So post cars that fit the bill

Juke's are ugly.

Juke rhymes with Puke...Coincidence?

Juke is one of the few crossovers I don't hate. At very least it's not bland, and its owners tend to pick colours that aren't shades of gray too.
Plus it actually looks like the concept, and Juke R is badass too.

Sometimes when I crank the engine the radio turns off, as usual, but when it turns on again it loses all of it's settings, like time, saved stations, bluetooth pairing, etc.

Took it to the dealership assistance (it's still in warranty) and the guy said it's a signal of a dying battery, is it true? Never had any issues with lights or problems starting the engine.

Multimeter should be fine. You are just checking to see if there is a loss in connectivity when you jiggle the wires around. Ground wires are often the culprits so maybe start there after you check your leads and do a battery check at autozone or whoever is closest.

>>20429068
Pay for a battery and tell them to test alternator for free.
Better than being stuck and have to get a jump or worse.
>>
>>20429052
Sounds like a bad connection? Clean the terminals and connectors, I change the connectors on all the cars I buy because its less than 10. If you use a volt meter on the battery itll tell you the life.
>>
>>20429052
Yes, your battery is sagging below the voltage required for the radio to maintain it's memory.

OP here, I just remembered one thing:

by default the stereo came with that RDS thing turned off, so I looked online, found some hidden settings and turned it on. Coincidence or not the problems started after I did this. I'll restore the settings and check

Hi /o/
I'm currently converting a 1991 SW20 MR2 to all wheel drive, using a cosworth MT75 gearbox, and running the diff upside down.
The engine I'll be using a nissan VQ35, which I will be destroking to 2litres for rally regulations, and will be using a single IHI Turbine.
I'm currently cutting the transmission tunnel, and my angle grinders a peice of shit, does anyone have any tips here? I've got through 6 of these fucking wafer thin discs so far, all they do is snap into peices.

No it isn't. VW never follows through on things like that, they just dangle it as bait for nostalgia fags and Jalopnik writers.
Anyway, I can't really say I'll miss the nu-beetle. The second gen had better styling, but styling isn't the whole equation. Without the RR layout and the mechanical simplicity it was just a less practical Golf.

You seem to be a good example of the point. Pretentious asshole with very little knowledge of vehicles but will buy a brand to show your not "poor". This leads to the entitled dick head attitude that causes the owners to not use signals, cut people off and so on. It has nothing to do with being poor. It has to do with common courtesy of which BMW drivers have none.

Hi /o/,

I am currently modifying my Skyline R34 GT-T.
GTX 3076RR GenII, E85, Haltech ECU, Plazmaman Intercooler, Boost Controller, External Wastegate, Coilovers, etc...
The power target is around 500+ rwhp

The vehicle is to be a fun weekend street car which I may eventually try on the track.

The Air Conditioner is currently broken. I never use this as I like to drive with the windows down hear the engine more intimately.

It will be cheaper to fix now than after the modifications are complete.
If I remove it completely it will shave around 40kg of weight. I am wondering you guys think this will massively affect resale value.

The way R34 GT-Rs are appreciating I feel like even the GT-T will be worth a bit once the US can legally import them.

yeah but what did it cost to build the r32.
its a misconception that you take the value of the stock car, add the value of your mods and then sell it. noone ever buys those are advertised price.

>Dumb boomers who reinstall a pos stock tape deck that doesn’t even pick up above 90.00FM radio into a JDM 300zx and think that makes it worth 20k more are fags
couldn't agree more. original shit especially for these 90s cars are trash. i'd rather have nice modern speakers and a decent non flashy headunit instead of a factory tape deck that only gets AM not FM. modified gtr's would only be valuable if they've done the correct mods and had them done by a well known reputable shop otherwise its a gamble.
>>
>>20427366
Shops build them and sell them. They are definitely turning a profit when they take a 20k barely running gtr, make it run 400kw on a stock rebuilt bottom end, and flick it for 50
