Yeah that's always been my assumption to about trumpets on fwd Corollas. Would seem to work way better with the stock intake or something similar where you have itbs but the air is coming from somewhere other than the back of the engine bay. I like the idea of carbed 16v 4ages but they would probably just have the same issue. Your Corolla is based and a definite sleeper

These are tiny AF btw

I'm falling for the 350z meme...

I want one...

But what's stopping me from buying one right now is the fact I've had nothing to do with Nissan's in general other than my old G60 Patrol, I'm just curious about how the maintenance goes for these boys.

Any 350z owners out there got any heads up for me? Any common issues? Is it easy to work on in comparison to let's say... A BRZ?

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Actually I have no oil leaks at all from both cars.

No oil stains in the garage either.

I have an oil catch can on the 350z.

Do it. Love my 350Z.

Wrenched extensively on my car and an FRS. 350Z is as easy if not easier to work on.

If you wanna beat on the car you’ll need a CSC delete and a diff at the minimum. Change the oil on 5k intervals and keep up on preventative maintenance and you’ll be fine. Main PITA with this car is the galley gasket failing at high mileage/abuse.
>>
>>22618135
I was just joking, my G35 is leaking a bit though. Too lazy to fix it, I’m adding oil either way.

Would you recommend the catch can? I’ve been thinking about that one. A cheap way to control some of the oil consumption? What’s the catch
>>
>>22618215
The catch can is doesn't stop oil consumption.

It stops the oil from going into the plenum and building up in there. Which can ruin your car and cause valve build up on the engine.

I'm trying to get regular maintenance done on my vehicle and I have questions about brake service. It's a 2012 and I've never had anything like a bleed done, but it's low mileage at 25k or so. I was told during a fluid change the master cylinder was about half full. Do I need to go full bore and get a bleed/lube and all that shit, or should I just top off the brake fluid? Doesn't feel mushy (at least that I can tell, maybe I'm used to it), grabby, or noisy.
>>
>>22617795
Just top it off if the brakes feel fine
>>
If the MC is low there's a leak somewhere; you can bleed them or flush them and it won't fix the leak. Mushy brakes means there is air in the lines; grabby or noisy is a caliper problem most likely. Get the brakes checked by someone who knows what they are doing - topping off the fluid will not fix the problem
>>
>>22617832
Don't listen to this busrider. Top off your fluid, crack open your bleed valves, and drive down the block with them open to purge the old fluid.
>>
>>22617795
The fluid gets lower as your pads wear down, if the fluid is that low then a full check of the brakes is best. Topping it up is pointless until you get it checked.

I just had an idea for an Antitheft device.
A small tank that holds fluid under the car, If the car gets towed up the tow truck or down the street the fluid is gonna spill. Theres a switch to toggle it so it doesn't spill when driving. You could put gasoline or paint in there so you either know who stole your car or he is simply burned alive in his tow truck.
Thoughts?

>The War Rig has a kill switch preventing it from being driven by unwanted individuals. The kill switch sequence was set by Imperator Furiosa herself. The ignition sequence consists of toggling seven switches as follows: 1st switch - 2nd & 3rd simultaneously - 1st switch, red switch, black switch and ignition switch. Trying to drive the War Rig without engaging the correct sequence will halt the flow of fuel to the engines, allowing the driver only a short jaunt before the engines burn up what remains of the gas within the throttle body.
Sans the 'burn your engine up running lean' part I'm gonna set something like this up in my truck, series of switches and relays that must be thrown in the right sequence or they disconnect key sensors.

Modern dumb burner phones that can just call/text use barely any power, and 95% of that consumption is the screen. Just sitting, it'll last for 6+ months.
Doesn't matter if the service plan expires, as long as it has a SIM, and thus a number, it works with 'find my phone'.

questions that don't deserve their own thread

OP wants to be spoonfed edition

I got a 2011 Subaru Forester XT Sports today as my first car, pic related. I want to do some fun stuff to it.
An anon mentioned a MagnaFlow Muffler - which model would you guys recommend?
That same anon recommended getting gold wheels. What's a place to look for those?
Any other things you guys would do? Body kit up front and a new intake system?

Did you read the story? The HHR has a towing capacity of about 1000 pounds and the guy said he was using it to move a trailer over double that. Generally speaking, if you see a hitch on a car like that it's going to raise some eyebrows because people will womder if it was used for something it shouldn't have been... And it was. I'm sure it's different for a truck or SUV so long as you're using quality parts.

They seem to be fine assuming it's not a rebuilt title, and as another anon has said, find an older buyer/boomer to buy from. Otherwise the GT was probably thrashed and who knows on the maintenance? North of 150K miles I'd be leery unless they have some papers to show what kind of work has been done, or if another motor was put in.

The 3v is not the 2v as far as going indefinitely with regular maintenance, but it's not a horrible motor either. As a weekend driver I say hell yeah, DD just depends on the way it was kept.
