If I throw on a really free flowing intake or exhaust, it could throw a check engine light or not pass emissions due to the extra fuel needed with that air flow.

Basically I fuck with Accords because it's the most powerful 50 state legal thing I can afford.
Ahh, i see.
There are things you can do to not get cel's with stuff like that. Wont throw a code and even if you got smog tested it should still pass if the cat is doing its job
But i understand what you mean now
It’ll burn oil regardless of miles. Make 100% sure the timing belt has been done, if not, do it before ripping on it. Otherwise it’ll have no serious problems.
One I buy will probably have 120k miles or under, will make sure it has service records too. How bad is oil consumption? And from 97-2001 or whatever did they improve engine much? Thanks

Imagine if there was a car manufacture that was made by car enthusiasts, for car enthusiast and made cars for car enthusiasts.

Sure Scion was close to that. But it is still ran by Toyota's corporate think tank. Imagine a company where every employee of the company even the CEO is an car enthusiast who's car is an highly tuned tuner that makes 1000 HP.

You're right about that. If you think you're making a point then yeah I'm not getting it at all.

Let's be real: Right hand drive is inferior. Shifting with your left hand doesn't make sense. If you have no balls whatsoever and you drive an automatic, well frankly no one cares about your opinion, but I can concede it makes no difference which side of the car and the road you're on. But if you are actually trying to not be a total shame filled pathetic manlet and drive a proper manual, I mean... good for you for putting up with the nonsense, but admit that 90% of people are right handed and it's way more natural and makes way more sense to shift with your right hand.

It really doesn't make a fucking difference which hand you use once you have the motor skills and dexterity of at least an orangutan.

14th technically, at least according to lib tards I argued with in my pol sci class.

>The Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution indicates that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

As much as I hate to admit it, I lost that debate but I got to make fun of the nigger in class by ripping up his pro-AA argument.

Its a little model of the car but i like the stance
If I could get an R31 TOmmy Kaira M30, is probably commit blasphemy and put some RB25/26 heads on the RB30 block and turbo it. Nothing crazy, like 450hp at 6500 would be good enough for me.
9000rpm or bust. rb30 with a decent turbo and high rpm, no need for the dohc head as the sohc makes great power as you can see with the VL commodores in Aus.

lets design a new engine, what can we do thats different?
>Dunno, how about we make the piston a spinning triangle

Wow sounds cool! Will it get better performance than a normal engine?
>No, it'll have a worse efficiency than anything we've made before

Can we try to make it at least to 20 mpg
>Sorry but going downhill in neutral at idle with a tailwind of 80 mph it'll get 17

I guess that's alright, can we at least make it sporty
>Sure we'll make the outside sporty

But not the motor?
>No, we can't it takes up too much room but we can push about 130 HP on a good day

They're not great for DDing, but they make excellent project/weekend cars.
Performance is not efficiency
Why don't bikes come with rotaries? Throw a 1-rotor at a sportsbike, literbike performance at half the weight, and suitable for girls too.
Do you realize that Mazda didn't invent the rotary engine you moron?

It exists and it's called a Turbine-electric transmission. But it's not really in consumer production.

Pick one
I wouldn't claim it's the best engine on the world, but for small workhorse blocks I've always liked the Mitsu 4G54. They put that engine in everything, even forklifts.
In terms of dollars/BHP value, got a admit it's the LS
Ford itself isn't but their V8s are.
honda is better than Toyota lmfao.

literally anything is better than a toyoshit vehicle

Right lads I need some help, how the fuck do I get this thing off? I'm trying to rip the entire inner door plastic off to get at the speaker underneath, but this one window roller is holding it back.

I've rammed screwdrivers under it, tried to rip it off with my hands yet it's still not gonna budge. Someone please help me get this off

Car is a 07 kia picanto if that helps

I don't get it, is it because I mentioned the car I have?

I thought it might help. Saw some tutorials on YouTube that have rollers with a little pin that pops out to pull it off, mine doesn't have that though :(
I actually have no idea how to help you but there are some nice anons around that can help. Just bump it a few times. I was just shit posting but you seem chill
I think you have to use a fork and pull hard. Try slipping 2 wrenches behind it then grabbing both ends and pulling towards you. Or grab some zip ties, tie it around the base and yank.
theres a "safety pin" like device under the roller that prevents it from just being pulled, it looks like a bobbi pin and you should be able to get it out with needle nose pliers, if its anything like my dads Xterra
go all around the edges first then you can peek in there and see what the hangup is

This isn't typical, btw, most car manufacturers have transponders in the steering column that send a parsing signal to your fob, even if it's completely dead.

its a great offroader for people who dont know what offroading is, just like a rav4
Its not a full on offroader but its much more capable than other cars in its class, like the Vitara

This whole exchange took place over the course of less than 5 minutes but now I am paranoid, am I okay or are the police going to be looking for my car now? What if he/she called in my license plate and fabricated a story about me? I'm spooked bc it's also not too far from where I live.
