    The water pump on my Porsche 928 went bad. I was clearing things out from the front of the motor to get at it, when I loosened a bolt and clearly saw that a small lock washer was broken in half and...

    This might be an insurance issue. I am pretty sure that, under normal circumstances, the car would be covered and replaced. At a race track, doing insane speeds, it is likely not covered.

    Stock turbos can build lots of boost, but they cannot maintain it all the way to redline without being way beyond their capacity. You can bump up the midrange boost, but you must taper it back...

    The ECU will store all of the faults and tell you exactly why it was put into limp mode. You need to learn how to read the codes with the Proceede or find someone with a code reader that can read...

    I think that, if you look hard enough, you can find a test that claims that extra extra virgin olive oil is better than all the rest.

    I also used the BMW oil for the first 30k miles with good...

    A case of the chicken or the egg. One likely came off and knocked off the other, but either could have happened first. It seems hard to believe that you could pull enough g's to propel a catch can...

    It looks as if he has someone helping him with the welding. One person is making the intricate pieces, like the collectors, as the welds look decent. A second person is welding the components...

    You need to be a lot more specific about when it vibrates, when it does not, and how bad it is.

    This could be anything from the wheels or tires to the intercooler piping.

    Whipple conservatively claims 700 on the Stage 1 Coyote 5.0 engine. With this engine being 5.2, and rated at ~100hp more than the Coyote stock, I would say that your estimates should be achieved...

    The P-car def needed a driver mod, nls, or something as he would lose half a car per shift. Otherwise the car seemed to pull about as strong as the C-6.

    I'm sure there are exceptions to every rule, but most people going single turbo end up with a larger turbo, for the extra overhead, and kill the driveability. They work great on the dyno, or at the...

    I think that single turbo kits are the hot ticket for a track car, but I am not sure that they perform as well as a daily driver. For a DD partial throttle acceleration and low end responsiveness is...

    I know that surprises are fun, but you might want to spell out what you are thinking about for your turbo, before you take that step. If what you are looking at has never been used on this platform,...

    The entire time I was reading, I was thinking a 3 Series BMW, a 328 if you are fine with just enjoyment, or a 335i or M3 if speed is important.

    Do you have any pictures of the wife/GF?

    This sounds too good to be true!

    If you listen to McGregor's interview, he had seen tape on what "tells" Aldo gave when he was getting ready to unload a big right hand. Connor baited him, waited for him to bite, then took...

    I had my valve cover replaced (under warranty) at 30K miles. The car now has 45k and is starting to show the same symptoms as when the VC was cracked. Not in warranty anymore.

    An E9X comes with a 255 stock and an E8x comes with a 245. I have not modified the camber, stretched the fenders, or even rolled the fenders. If you want to play it safe, go with the 255 or 265...

    I have 275/17's Mickeys that fit fine for the track with 100% stock fenders and camber settings. They stuff the wheel wells completely and are taller than stock, so they will scrub the upper fender...

    If this were a late model mustang running mid to high 10's, you would be clicking off 1.4x 60' times. Reality is that it is going to be a lot harder for us to get close to that.

    I look forward to...

    A guy in South Florida was running a 135 with stock turbos in the low 11's with 1.5 60' times regularly. He was an Auto trans with 245 DRs launching in 1st gear. We are talking apples and oranges,...

    Going up or down 1 gear should almost be instantaneous, going down 2 gears requires the servo to engage the other gear on the same shaft that you were already on. It will take more time than a...

    FWIW, I installed catless DP's and started noticing the smoke within a day or two after. About the only way to replicate it is to park the car for 2 - 4 hours, drive cautiously (slowly) for about 2...
