I hear talk about bulletproof engines, but who makes the most bulletproof transmissions, for manual and automatic respectively?
Can a transmission even last as long as an engine, given proper maintenance is done at regular intervals?

My 2018 Accord does
>Do manuals just have the traditional drain and fill plugs?
Some only have fill plugs, you must remove transmission to drain or suck it out like a cheap whore
>It should if it has a dipstick, right?
Manuals don’t have them, dipstick.
GM's THM350/400, and 4L80e are strong Autos, and the NV3500 is a decent Manual.
Ford had the C3 Transmission and I think that was a tougher one.
Dodge doesn't really do strong Autos but it shared the NV4500 with GM and those are pretty much bombproof with maintenance and a lack of dry asphalt 4WD clutch dumping.

The 4L60e gets a bad rap because owners with a 5.3 Silverado will drive like they're racing a road course with a 24 foot camper and no auxiliary tranny cooler and then leave the already cooked tranny fluid in there past the maintenance interval.

Just follow the maintenance schedules and don't beat on it. That's the general rule of thumb.
Every car I've had so far has been manual and had a dipstick for the gear oil. Why wouldn't it?
What’s the tranny they put in those late 2010s v6 accords? Idk if those are “bulletproof” but they feel so god damn good.

It still has the Fiat 2.0L DOHC it came with and it's not seized or burnt to shit so the team and I are gonna try and save it. It'd be a shame to throw away the winningest engine in rally history.
Its over 25 years old, and its Japanese counterpart was featured in a popular TV show. Its classic now.

make it the winningest engine in lemons history then

Not to mention, try googling how to do a valve clearance check on either one of those plastic nightmares.

the fatass kidney grille looks alright when its tucked further into the bumper-grille it seems, the new 3 series proportions look slightly off. perhaps it's the chrome being too thick.

>5.7s for days
Yeah, I found a 6 liter. Probably has a 4L80 too. Express vans are a good place to look for them since boiracers don't think to. I'll see if it's still there.
Auctions here in aus are stupid expensive as well the fees are insane
Yeah honestly it was 6k+ in parts alone to make my own ly6 I might just go this route

>This is a all new parts 403ci stroker sort engine built for boost.
>Do you have a turbo or supercharged ls build on your mind? This one if for you.. The alloy blocks are good, but when it comes to high cylinder pressure that boost makes you start to lose reliability, Time to go to the ly6 iron block. this is what you need if you are going for 1000hp at the wheels

That’s why you need to come to America, you’re government is literally trying to cuck you
Hopefully you don’t have to pay out the ass to get it shipped to Queensland or wherever you’re from. That short block will be strong enough for what you’re wanting, just reuse whatever parts are still salvageable from the last engine. That 114 lsa cam would be perfect for a centrifugal supercharger

I dunno. I run them down to the wear markers, there's usually about 10% left at that point.

I think that's pretty standard practice for brakes

I like this look better
ijdmtoy, comes with 2 different length screws & some people were getting holes in their bumper because they were too long. I reused the factory ones & no problems
I think it depends on the color, I really don't like the 2018+ in red/grey but Lightning blue and that competition orange looks great imo. Really wish they brought grabber blue back though
that's why you get it in Black which pretty much hides most of the body lines on any car
kona blue was my first choice, but got shadow black instead

108HP w/ 735kg / 1620lbs
same 0-100km/h / 0-60mph as the same year Golf II GTI G60
that's like saying that a current year Civic Type R is an econobox. It is not. Yes it has the CITY branding and small size, but no. It's a hot hatch.
Why the price is so high? Because it's rare making it basically a collectors car
dont like the wheels and grill, but if the hood is actual wood (it isnt) it would be an absolute flex

Which configuration of pickup do you think is better for a half ton that does mostly highway driving and that can tow a single car trailer
I'm looking at 2011-2013 F150s with the 6.2L and some 2015-2017s with the 5.0L. All of them are obviously used with anywhere between 120-150k miles. The newer ones are lighter, and they're both equally about as quick. The 6.2L makes more power and torque but it's offset by the weight, and mpgs are pretty much the same, the 5.0L might get 1-2mpg more. I feel like getting up into these higher mileage ones though, the 6.2L will last longer because 1 it's an overbuilt super duty engine crammed into a half ton, and 2 the people who opted for the more expensive engine option are more likely to have taken better care of it. I see a bunch of 6.2Ls on autotrader with over 200,000 miles, and the trucks I'm looking at, despite being high milers, are the cleanest available. I'd rather spend 20k on a truck that will last 5 or 10 years than 10k on a beater with years of neglect and abuse behind it.

Bruh you don’t tow shit if you did you’d get a F250
Extended cabs are an upgrade over a single cab but they're still shit if you plan on carrying people in the back.
A modern half ton can easily tow as much as an old F250, probably more
I do tow just not much or often. No enough or often enough to need a superduty. I mean, I'd like to have one for sure but they just cost too much. $20k gets you a very good condition lariat, and a same mileage f250 costs 10k more for a XL.
Yeah but it's perfect for my girlfriend up front and dog in the back.

So it failed as a car. Thanks for verifying that.
It didn't really fail in sales, 60k+ units in 2004.
why do people hate on rx8?i find it a pretty cool car in general.not better than the 7s but in a vacuum its not bad at all.i quite like the bodywork too and the chassis is proven.an sr20/k20/f20 would elevate the car many times tho
because the engines shat themselves and were woefully underpowered. No amount of amazing chassis makes up for an engine that shits itself or can barely move the thing along. Unless babied, they shit themselves. So like was pointed out earlier, they completely failed as a car. And the idiot thinking selling 60k units in a year means a car is a success... Lada or some no name chink brand has probably sold twice as many units in a year. Doesn't mean the car is good.

I see /o/ quickly forgot about this tremendous failure after hyping it up as not only America's first hypercar, but "DA FASTEST CAR IN DA WURLD", then it got exposed by autists who did it for Koenigsegg for free, then after one hell of a damage control episode it did a second run but SURPRISE - the engine "overheated" and it was only able to go slower than a Veyron from 2005.

What happened? Jerod's checks start to bounce? There's been a startling amount of silence since mid-November.

It was the Konig-fags that vetted this car as a fraud in the first place do to some ridiculous autism, and nobody really cared.
It's crystal clear what happened. They tried to cheat and they got caught. Not much more to say I guess.
