>I heard offhand that Ford has gotten better but I wasn't sure if those were just made up rumors. I think they are.

You couldn't get a new anything for $12k anyway.

There are also Nissan Frontiers and Titans in crew cab. I don't know anything about them though, beyond that the newest Frontier with a crew cab is third gen (twice removed from the Hardbody).

Hello everyone, Saab anon here.

I got tired of looking at the brownpills and thought that we should have an active BO. I sent a claim for /o/, and now here I am. the last BO wasn't active since February

I already took the liberty of deleting the brownpills and spoilering some porn, as well as changing the board message. I also made moderation logs completely public because I like transparency.

Some things I would like to do:

>get more banners

>maybe get custom flags - like for automakers, racing teams, etc

>not be a faggot BO

Does anyone else have any suggestions? Post them here for discussion or email me. Post your new banners here as well.

Follow the rules:

that feel when we could have fast rumblin' tumblin' cars superior to conventional fossil fuel based cars in everyway but the jewish menace insists we continue to use GASOLINE.

For the autistic purists, you can keep your old pieces of shit and burn oil all you want, this is mostly regarding a shift in the general production of newer cars. It is a fact that despite more efficient energy systems available, the jewish menace insists on keeping everything literally a century behind in engineering.

Turbine engines have similar "compression ratio" to piston engines, you can swap them pretty much.

let me give you an example, 10:1 CR can be changed to pressure ratio by making it CR^k with k being the specific heat capacity ratio of air.

which you can say is between 1.35 to 1.41 depending on where you are, I'll just use 1.4 which gives you a pressure ratio of 25.12.

to get it's thermal efficiency you'll use a complicated ass formula

1- (1/CR^(k-1)) which with the numbers I gave you with a 10:1 engine is around 60%.

with higher compression ratios and well, turbocharging, you'll get even an even higher efficiency.

if you account for mechanical drag between parts and put it around 85% (which is where the majority of regular cars are) you'll get 51% for just a 10:1 ratio.

So yea, ICE are more efficient than muh electric fags tell you.

Modern GuD powerplants get more than 50% efficiency, so do marine diesels.

Diesel engines in cars get up to 40% peak efficiency, BUT they only get it at medium rpm and high load as shown in >>11131 .

To get there you would need to use a verry low powered engine and even then you would only get a good efficiency driving a constant speed on the highway.

Electric cars get a good efficiency at any speed.

Doing my plugs and wires soon. I've got pre-gapped Bosch Iridium spark plugs, and the gap on the box is the correct gap for my engine. I'd like to just put them in as-is without messing with the gap, since the electrode is so easy to damage, and because I'm pretty sure I've screwed up a couple iridium plugs before by gapping them. The thing is, 90% of "pre-gapped" plugs I've checked in the past were set at the wrong gap (and were not even consistent in how far off they were).

So which is riskier? Messing with the gap to make sure it's right, or leaving them alone and potentially using the wrong gap?

The issue with modern trucks is they're basically cars now a days. People want something to lug their family in and whatever useless shit they buy, and something for the winter and all that, which trucks do. So the Big three respond by making them more car like, in ride, fuel, and styling (for better or for worse).

People can wax carrot about how small hybrids are the future, but the big three dominate sales with trucks. You can't explain it as being all fleet sales either, nor can that justify the BMW-level +$60,000 tag on the high end models (I wish manufactures would take this as a sign and make boats again, fuck the eurocucks for taking them away).

Anyways have some sexy trucks.

as a former thrift rat that's a bad idea unless you're stupid lucky to find something decent. it'd be easier and a better use of your time/money to grab a cheap set of new speakers.

There's a Goodwill in a particularly nice area near me that gets a lot of "dated but good" audio equipment, so it shouldn't be too hard. I could just do Pyles or something but I'm convinced I can get a better home speaker for the same price.
