Do any of you here have any experience with "street" racing? We have a group of about 40 people here in our city that race the village roads around the city and have people who time and spot for us so we don't kill anyone.
The local police forces caught a whiff as one of the guys went 140 Kph around their car at one stage and lost them.
I drive a VTS with a turbo similar to pic related, won't share mine for obvious reasons.

Hell, a stock supercharged AW11 or an ebay turbo Miata or ebay turbo Civic would embarrass you.

Anyone know of any cheap vehicles from the 80's- early 90's that can handle good amounts of boost (~350-400 hp) on stock internals with minimal changes (ring gap, arp studs, head gasket)?

Anyone know if these are any good and what years;

I want something to take to my local drift track is the reason for the RWD specification. I already have a 2005 STI and a First gen 12v cummins so I don't really need anything else to drive daily.
Honda S2000, RX7's if you can find places that work on them, Older Toyota's like the Corolla Levins if you can find them, Celica's. Nissan has a few.
oh yea Nissans like the 240, 270, 280, 300
I'll be doing all my own work but the rx7 idea isnt bad I can buy blown motor rx7's for like 300$ around here with minimal rust. Is the 350 swap a good idea in those or is it absurdly expensive?

Is China taking over the auto world, or were the lads overreacting?
40 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
When the Chinese bought Volvo, it didn't mean that Volvo turned Chinese like everyone keeps spouting.
They only gave Volvo the unlimited funds to develop new technologies, platform, hybrid and electric drivetrains. All that and new Volvo design language is pure Swedish Volvo made by Swedes.

Where the Chinese come in is the ownership of those new inventions. They steal them for themselves and have been making their own cars based on the Swedish Volvos. They could never do it on their own so bought Volvo to make them do it for them. The Chinese will start to sell maybe even legit good cars in western countries in the future but they lack foundations, if they can't rip off others or Volvo becomes independent somehow, they will have nothing.
This, they'll just buy their way into the more developed markets and then use that technology access to sell improved shitboxes in developing markets. They've already got a big presence in Latin America, Africa is next.
>When the Chinese bought Volvo, it didn't mean that Volvo turned Chinese like everyone keeps spouting.

I accidentally forgot to unsubscribe to Amazon prime after christmas, and so I watched an episode TGT.

What a piece of shit show. Complete trash compared to TG.

I'd rather watch James reassemble old bikes than the poorly scripted, cringey shit they purvey on that show.
>Fiat not on the list
This is how I know their data is fucked

To be fair, I had a 2001 Volvo V70 T5 that was an absolute nightmare to maintain. It died after 120k miles due to, but not limited to, extreme wear in the turbo bearing, cyl 1 & 5 not making compression, PCV system sucking up oil from the dying turbo, blown rear main, and finally, after I got the turbo rebuilt and things started looking up, the transmission just completely lost the ability to shift past second gear. I gave up on it there and junked it. That was when Ford owned Volvo, I can only imagine what the Chinese will do to it eventually...

Welp have fun m8, i'll be doing the same later this week. Except just drain, fill, short trip to run through all gears, drain & fill x3 also replacing the internal filter. They say its a lifetime filter but eh not from the ones ive seen. Probably going to put an inline filter and cooler on there later on.

got a RWD '92 f150 351w 160k miles I'm looking at replacing the shocks/struts and coils.. been watching a lot of DIY videos on youtube and see lots of people getting negative camber after replacing the coils.. I'm hoping as long as I get the correct coils I wont get the camber issue but it's kind of discouraging since I originally wanted to get a leveling or 1.5'' lift, but I've read that the new springs might just be causing excess strain on other parts? like old ball joints or whatever? what other things should I replace while I'm getting it serviced? do you think that would help negate the camber issues?
Control arms and bushings and ball joints
I have limited amount of time/day to work on it, so I'm spreading out the work into sections. For something that would normally take 30 minutes, Im giving myself an extra hour window for any troubleshooting and double check my work.
Fair enough, good luck man.

I’m not entirely sure why Jaguar scarecely updated the XJS during its production run from 1975 to 1996, but I imagine it had to do with the problems with the employee unions the British automotive industry had at the time as well as poor management from British Leyland.
Obligatory Lister XJS mention: The Lister name eventually faded away until 1986, when it was revived by an engineer named Laurence Pearce. His new company, Lister-Cars Ltd, was based in Surrey and modified approximately 90 Jaguar XJSs, which were marketed as Lister-Jaguars.

Turning the XJS into an insanely powerful 200mph+ supercar required some very extensive modifications. For starters, the 5.3-litre engine was increased in size to six litres which, at the time, made the Lister-Jaguar capable of a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds, bettering that of the Ferrari Testarossa.
>can't even break 200

What are you talking about? Stock power was like 245-250 HP with a completely flat torque curve. For the 70s that was incredible. Most American V8s were barely getting 150 HP and were choked to shit.
It was a combination of things that kept it from a complete redesign, but they did do some updates. The design was paid off so each one they made was pure profit, which they needed for the XJ40 project. It helped that the car was actually very advanced, so it was still competitive 10 years later. People forget that the car had EFI from the start. It did eventually get a major redesign in the last 5 years of its life. It preserved the exterior styling while overhauling the construction and engine.

However, the XJ-S did get a major engine overhaul in 1982 with the HE engine. Jaguar redesigned the combustion chambers to, well, increase the efficiency of the engine. It increased fuel economy by something like 90-100% and gave a power increase of 10-15 hp. That's what saved the car from being axed, and ultimately gave it its long legs.

What does /o/ think of the dodge avenger?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Elaborate on that.
I don't think about it because I'm white.
Worst mpg
Worst interior
Worst space for size
Worst features
Worst brand recognition / status
Low reliability

It's a rental car that's basically for black people as a competitor to the Nissan Altima.
I don't think dodge is as unreliable as people say. But the thing is that dodges don't get exceptional mpg or have any stand out features. If you really like the styling I say make sure to get the R/T trim with the 3.6 V6

Cranks, no spark situation

Engine ground is solid

Replace ignition coil (tested impedance before install)

No spark

Check ECM for codes, throws a 2 flash, problem in spark chain

I tested the coil pack before install and it checked out. I guess I'll start following the wire chain and see what I get

While I'm following wires I'll get to that and see

a pin on the diagnosis connector also has tach signal. It comes straight off the negative wire of the igniter to the instrument cluster and diag box
by the way, the 1g/1h pins of the ecu are what controls the spark. if there is no signal on those wires, you won't have spark. check if the ecu is even working first.

btw, if your check engine light is on, chances are your ecu is working since the ecu is the only thing that controls it

I'm actually curious. Is it because of ridesharing? is it because you have a friend with a car?
