Recently inherited some steel. A couple of Hyundai Tiburons, one of which is the project car with a 6 speed standard and a 2.7 that has a hole in it. Probably caused by the super charger and other shit that is installed. The donor is also a 2.7 but automatic and stock. Can I do a swap? Is it just a matter of changing the fly wheel and tuning the ecu? Should I keep the super charger? If not will I be running too rich as the fuel system is upgraded? Never worked on foreign before.

Also was handed a 2001 F350 7.3 standard that is belching oil out the exhaust. I changed the turbo rings and pedestal rings. Wasn't a lot play on the turbine. Is the turbo fucked? Something worse? Starts cold with a little love.

New season, new thread. First episode goes up on the 18th but what I found more interesting was that they've made a video game that will release a few days before. It sounds awful, and for $15 they don't seem to be very confident in it themselves. I'm considering buying it just out of morbid curiosity.

If you're gonna spend in upwards of 30k dollarydoos on a new Miata, why not bump up a year to a 19 with the punchier engine while you're at it?

and when will Mazda make an infotainment screen that doesn't literally stick out like someone glued a tablet to the dash?


d601ac  No.17951

>>17950

I got ~$10k off the RRP as the dealer had it sitting there for 12 months so, I think, it was a good deal. The 'infotainment' system looks like it'd be completely in the way but actually isn't that bad when you're in there driving. I thought it was going to be annoying but I didn't get distracted by it once.

Oh I hope convertibles aren't your thing if you got the RF!

Shit, not a bad deal then. I'm waiting til the first '19s come off their 2 year leases and snatch one for hopefully sub $15k, assuming the engines prove to be as reliable as the old 1.8s do long term. I'm maybe a week from rolling over 150k on my '96 and she runs like a top.

Never been a massive fan of convertibles, so the RF is just what I was after. I'm sure every now and then I'll retract the roof for shits and giggles, but it's definitely not going to be a common occurrence. From my understanding, there are only 110 Limited Edition (LE) models that were released here, so it really was a steal. It's basically the RF GT model with 17-inch BBS alloy wheels, the Brembo brake pack, Bilstein shocks with revised springs, a more aerodynamic body styling kit (which is quite modest but looks really aesthetic), a strut tower brace and Recaro seats. I'm pretty sure our LE is the RS version that Japan got.

Unfortunately with car prices skyrocketing

Played a lot of Test Drive 6 when I was a kid then later played NFS Most Wanted, and I always went for the Dodge Viper and painted it a dark blue with double white stripes. I don't think I'll ever own one, but what I can say is that I will always love this 2000 Camaro Z28 with navy blue paint that once belonged to my mother. It's been with us ever since she bought it factory new from a dealer way back when, and only recently I can say it's mine. I'll take care of this car, even if it kills me.

they came in 4 auto, 5 and 6 manual depending on engine choice, the usual GM offerings. Luckily, they're so similar to the 3rd gen F-bodies that the t-56 swaps over/parts can be found with ease for some extra highway mileage plus an utterly bullet proof and simple transmission. If you have a 4th gen with a t-56, hold onto that baby, because a literal monkey could fix that tranny up, and the LS1 or 1st gen SBC are both bullet proof engines with excessive aftermarket. The car will rattle apart well before the drivetrain breaks, except maybe the rear end if you enjoy burnouts.

Seriously, those things were thrash quality, but simple to fix even half a century later. No exotic parts, the carbuerator needle is really the only thing you have to figure out yourself, as everyone offers different ideas.

Cracked it open finally, only to find a /gore/ worthy scene. The crankshaft and connecting rod were completely bust. Guess that sitting in water for some years with no oil does a number on old parts. Will look for a replacement engine or maybe parts if they are available, but no sooner than late May.

I also found out in some instruction manuals that i manged to translate from moonrunes to human letters that it runs on 63 gasoline. Sixty-fucking-three. Not sure where i am supposed to get that. Lowest i can get here is 95. Will still try to restore the frame/wheels/brakes in the meantime. Will probably but some chink 2-stroke bike kit and jam it on there.

The other bike i will be trying to restore is a Minsk 125 from late 80s, it at least is supposed to run on 92 gasoline. It will accept 95 just fine. And the engine and wheels actualy turn, which is a good sign.

Took my 89 golf for it's annual* MOT test this morning, it passed with only one advisory note about a minor oil leak which I was already aware of. Imaginemysurprise.jpg

Half an hour later, turned the key… nothing. The ignition barrel is kerfucked.

A bit of wire, some sparks and smoke later, and I managed to start it up and make it home. Somehow, replacement parts are still available, despite the VW parts guy telling me they're not.

Tomorrow i'll be figuring out how to fit the new one…

Any other anons have a classic car as their daily driver, and how much of a pain in the colon is it?

*14 months, because I am absent-minded. Got away with it, again.

P.S., not my golf in pic, I don't have any… mine's a 1.6CL 4+E with electric, er, nothing, faded paint and some rough bits. Yes, it's a rat, but hasn't been modded (molested) by a teenager.

I'm no expert, but every time I've gotten and old carb I get all new jets or a new carb entirely. It's such a pain to try and fix an old one that has pathways worn out of spec and the jets not working right. Normally super cheap to do, but check for your specific bike.

Ok, i found out that spare carbs for them costs almost nothing. What should i do with the ages-old gas/oil mix in the tank? I think right now the fuel line is clogged with ancient oil. and above it is 100% gasoline. At least it still smells like gasoline.

If i remove the tank and just pour it out, how to clean it of any remaining gunk in there?

I'd replace the old fuel/oil lines and filters, and like anon said above, fresh gasoline will clean out the residue - cotton buds are good for getting into the spigots.

Dispose of the old fuel carefully, (it degrades over time) and try not to set yourself on fire. Wouldn't hurt to clean the oil tank as well, same method.

Leave to dry fully before reassembly.

So it finally came out after 15 years of anticipation; the A90 Supra. As the dust on its unveiling begins to settle, what is /o/'s honest opinion about it?

Personally I'm not as critical about it as most seem to be, other than the fact it does seem a little underscale and underpowered. There is still the possibility they give us a 450 BHP RZ version if it stays in production that long, but I would have preferred something that stayed more true to the FT-1 if I'm being honest.

Our market is a hell of a lot bigger than all of europe. So what happens here is something that should be paid attention to. BMW makes hot garbage on wheels that sells to stepford wives and executives with more money than brains and no amount of "but they're reliable in europe" will change people's minds.

For that second bit about other carmakers adding it into manuals? Take rates for manuals over here was about 3.5 to 4% of all new vehicles sold … and that was like five years ago(roughly) with no signs of improving. So for our market autonomous emergency braking might actually be the last nail in the coffin for the manual. Why would the average car buyer get a vehicle that is measurably worse in every aspect? Why would a car company want to build something that's going to be insanely costly to build? Sure there might be an outlier but companies don't survive by making cost bloated vehicles with a transmission people aren't going to buy.

I think they are allowed to have cars with the steering wheel on the correct side. Hell, most EU states allow you to have a car with steering wheel on te wrong side for shits n giggles.

Having the wheel on the wrong side means that you can get the car for dirt cheap, much cheaper than if you bought one with wheel on the correct side.

I don't get your point, you either say that European manufacturers don't do small cars anymore and also uses the C1/108 examples, which are quite small cars. It's not smal with a "long" hood as they used to do, but at least it's small and fits in small parking spaces. The 1st gen Twingo was the roomiest small car ever built and that one was the peak small car. Not tiny, kei-car small, but small enough to qualify as such.

>aren't you confusing the trio Aygo/C1/108 and the trio Up!/Mii/Citigo?

Those three cars are all built in the same Czech plant, at least for the first gen.

And remembering how long the original Twingo lasted, yeah, that car counts too. There are quite a few others that survived into the 00s, but they're all bigger now.

Ford don't make the regular Ka anymore, instead they import the "Ka+" from India.

Opel/Vauxhall have the Adam, which is about the same size as the Fiat 500.

Same case with Renault's current Twingo.

Mercedes' A-Class ballooned into a fullsize compact long ago.

Mini said they'd make the Rocketman but have never got further than a concept.

When you remove all the badge engineering, there are just 3 vehicles European manufacturers offer that are city cars in the traditional sense - the Up, the Aygo and the Smart. Japan still makes the same Kei cars they used to but infuriatingly don't sell them outside anymore as they did in the 80s/early 90s. The Honda Brio RS for example looks far more like a "Civic Type R" than the current one does, which is now a coupe.

And crucially, the target market has changed. The current crop of subcompacts/city cars are designed for an entirely different audience than the likes of the Mini, Metro or Panda.

Cars like those 3 were made as the most basic form of automotive transportation for a fully grown family who need to get from A to B. They were built as fullsize cars but for a smaller frame. You had legroom in exchange for little in the way of safety. Cars like the 108, Up etc. are aimed for students/graduates who want to buy their first new car, and so are typically lesser equipped and have far less room in the back.

The Datsun 120Y was the mightiest car ever produced - ever!

Fight me.

>talks only about 3

bro you're confusing

Well if I remove the badge engeneering, theres:

PSA's 108/C1

Opel's Adam (PSA now, but not at all the same car as those above)

Renault's twingo

Smart's Fortwo

VW's trio

Fiat 500

Kia Piccanto

Hyundai i10

So that's way more than 3 differents cars. And I deliberately took off the Audi A1 and the Suzuki Ignis from the list. I'm pretty sure some other small cars are sold here but I don't have them in mind.

>>17931

what you're pointing out is more a security standard change than a shift in market.

Anyone experiment with any alternative fuels? You run a car on propane or natural gas? You make your own e85? Run your truck on wood gas?

You didn't make one.

And also missed mine.

Congrats

Natural gas could be interesting, especially when the car crashes and the tank BLEVEs.

No car equiped with natural gas tank has ever exploded even in the most severe of crashes. Those things have safety valves and enough insulation to contain an angry god, ya know.

I know this thread is a shitpost but…

It's strange that there aren't that many female racing drivers in motorsports. You'd think with recent times women would want to force themselves into this hobby as well.

But it seems like, they utterly ignore it.

I don't think there's a gender barrier in motorsports.

Even a mentally ill 30 year old transgender scat fetishist furry could drive a race car given that they train.

Hell, even a child could learn to drive a car if they can reach the pedals.

I do have have an answer to this already probably, I just don't wanna believe it for the sake of this argument (and because it makes my fate in humanity drop even more).

Do what? Reveal my possible answer to this?

Well, the simple truth is that equality activists are the only ones caring about the subjects they preach about.

They pester "x hobby" until the fans of the hobby give in to their demands but after that still nobody new cares about picking the hobby up and the hobby molesters move on.

Kinda like with video games. "Journalists/Activist only complain about video games, they don't play them."

However, for my previous post, I wanted people to give other ideas than this one, cause this answer is painfully obvious.

I don't think women are interested in driving for fun. I don't even know why men are still interested considering the cars available now.

If it's a touring wagon, shooting brake, underrated van, an okay auto-only transmission, sports truck or a 4-door car that's normally worshiped in the 2-door form, etc, post it here.

These cars deserve love too!

It was only to show how low the USA got regarding small cars.

>the demographic small cars were intended for have moved on to ridesharing and public transportation

blatant lie.

>Most cities that compact cars thrived in now pass regulations to disincentivise car ownership

<big cities means lots of people

<lots of people means potentially lots of cars

<lots of cars means traffic hell and no available parking spaces

>people are not having cars in big cities anymore!

I can't help you if you can't comprehend how inadapted individual cars are in large cities.

It's not about compact cars: see New York. It's about crowded space. And you know what? Crowded spaces means that buying a smaller car to park faster. Your cause/consequence rethoric is broken here. It's not because a city have smaller cars that they wants cars out: it's because there's too many cars.

<Because of the "arms race" phenomenon with increasing SUV market share, it's borderline suicidal to drive anything smaller than a crossover in the United States.

You're going completely away from the rest of your paragraph but you're right: big cars kill smaller cars. Litterally. Hopefully this doesn't happen too much in Europe (it does, but buyers would rather buy cars looking like a SUV (crossovers) than real SUVs.).

Don't worry, SUVs won't become a mainstream thing in Europe for a good while. They are too big for some cities, parking space is meant for mid-sized sedan/wagon, not something so wide you can't open doors without denting anything, and if the buyer is not going to haul around trailers or crap like that everyday, sanity wins and another wagon sale is made. Or a sedan if the buyer does not care about practicality at all.

Small cars in the US will never go away, just ecause they are pure joy to drive. That's enough to attract SOME cutomers to some super-cheap novelty brand that gets bought by Chinks 10 years later. What's the US eqivalent of Dacia? Is anyone over there even making small, cheap sedans anymore? Dacias might not be reliable, but with a car so cheap, you can buy a new one every 8-10 years.

Maybe the small Chevy Sonic? They're pretty cheap too. Or maybe the Mitsubishi Mirage.

The Civic EP3. There was nothing really wrong with it, it was apparently a good driving car, and it was cheap. I very rarely see them anymore. I honestly think I'm going to get one for my wife as a first car.
