$9200 for a 5.3. Find a new shop. The shop owner must have just bought a boat or owes the mafia money.

>>25922819
I don’t even know how this is a question.

You can get an engine and swap it for $800 including a machine shop checking out the engine. Spending $9,200 is beyond retarded, hell you can put a fucking supercharged V8 into the truck for that cost.

I unironically have both nearby.

My neighbor is selling his 1998 Thunderbird Super Coupe for $10,000. It has a lot of custom suspension work and is definitely unique. Problem is it did have some flood damage and sat for a few years. He was telling me this car is just waking up at 135mph and can top out super fast on the highway, is that true?

He obviously makes mad stacks of cabbage.

You will never be a real SUV. You have no body-on-frame, you have no AWD, you have no Off-Road Capabilities. You are a hatchback twisted by greedy companies and the ignorance of the general public into a crude mockery of SUVs perfection.
All the “validation” you get is naive. Behind your back people mock you. Your creators arent proud of you, your “fans” see you as nothing else than a tool for going from A to B.
Real car fans are utterly repulsed by you. A century of car evolution have allowed said guys to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even Crossovers that are “good enough” look uncanny and ugly. Your unibody structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a woman to buy you, she’ll die in a rollover once your lifted compact car suspension causes you to flip.
You will never be good. You wrench out a fake impression of a real SUV so foolish people think its going to be ok.
The emergency services will find you, relieved that they no longer have to deal with another inefficient, bloated vehicle. They’ll send you to a scrapyard with your chassis code, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a crossover is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy are remains that are unmistakably from a hatchback.
This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.

we know faggot. people buy it because it's a fucking Corolla with some decent ground clearance + AWD + hatchback, and still cheaper than a RAV4. not everyone fucking needs a body on frame SUV that gets 15mpg and a third row for two fucking kids. not everyone is looking for, dare I say it and get called a redditor, a penis compensation vehicle

How do I pick a carburetor for my engine build.

I calculated my displacement as 285ci and my redline is 5700 RPM. By all calculations, it comes out to 470 CFM, so a 450 would be right. I could be wrong of course.

I know the problems associated with using too big of a carburetor, basically it runs lean because the engine can't pull enough of a vacuum to reliably pull fuel. Talking to Holley and they are pushing a 600 CFM carb.

Is a 600 Carb fine and I'm retarded or what?
>>
Don't get a 600cfm carb if other calcs say a 450 would be right. It's better to run less carb then too much carb.
Same with the exhaust size. Don't do 3in primaries into a 6in collector when you only make 300hp.
>>
>>25923579
I'm making a little over 200, so yea, I'm only running 2 inch primaries.
>>
I am well aware a TBI EFI system would resolve this.
>>
>>25923579
Ya fuck the "just get a 600 bro" bullshit.
You didn't say manual or automatic trans.

https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/carburetors/street/parts/0-1848-2

That's a 465 cfm vacuum secondaries 4 barrel that was used on 60's/70's muscle cars.
I personally think the price is a little steep but I doubt you're going to find a rebuildable one in the junkyard but boomer hoarders like myself are not going to pull one out of my collection to sell you.
There was also a 475 cfm, 485 cfm and a 500 cfm but holley has narrowed their producy line since thwure no longer a oem supplier and it looks like those are no longer offered.

Just quick rundown since that probably looks different to toy that the 4150 model 600 cfm.
Float bowls are side hung or center hung.
Center (600 cfm model 4150 style) is better for drag strip because of fuel sloshing from front to rear.
Side (model 4160) is better for turns.
4160 also has an interconnect tube from front to rear bowl. The 4150 has to run pic related (not included because different racers run different setups).

That's a given.

I don’t see much talk about them on /o/, so I figure I’d make this thread. I currently own a 2014 Jetta SE, which has only had 2 main issues, which were the camshaft sensor and heater core. Other than that, the car has been relatively trouble free.

They are pieces of shit and break down all the time, as evidenced by you already having two significant problems with your 2014 model. For reference my wife has a Camry and I have a 4runner, both older than your jetta, and neither has had any issues at all. Both have over 120k miles.

This is the TWR XJR-14 chassis #691. It is the second of eventually 4 sister chassis built in partnership with Astec and Tom Walkinshaw Racing in 1991 on behalf of Jaguar to contest in the FIA World Sporscar Championship series for Group C prototype racecars.

The 1991 season brought new (and largely unpopular) changes to the technical regulations. Chief among these is the rule that mandated 3.5L naturally-aspirated engines. This meant that TWR could no longer use successful engines from Jaguar and Rover so they had to reached out through Jaguar's parent company of Ford who also happened to own a large stake at famed engine constructors Cosworth to source a powerplant for their '91 contender. Cosworth was prolific customer engine supplier in Formula 1 and so they offered up a 3rd-gen HB 3500 V8 detuned for endurance sportscar racing.

For its first race, it would attend Rd 1 of the WSC at Suzuka with its sister car #591. #691 would wear the number 4 and grid in 6th with the driver combo of Martin Brundle and Teo Fabi, but #591 would take pole. While the cars proved to fast, #691 would DNF after only 4 laps in its maiden race.

Rienhold Joest would retain the car to this day. At some point he had the car restored to its WSC-95 specification with the livery it had for the 1996 LM24 races. He occasionally wheels it out for special occasions.
