    Doug finally reviewed the 2000 R

    He should probably stick to new more exotic car reviews that the average car guy knows little about and will most likely never see in person. Reviewing older enthusiast cars is opening the door to a beatdown in the comments. I mean, at least cover the high points. I don't believe he mentioned...

    Recommend me a car

    For a daily, definitely Honda or Toyota. I had a 08 si bought new back when they were affordable. Fun car but super slow. Like 15sec slow. I think a supercharger would have made that car great.

    Doug finally reviewed the 2000 R

    I was hoping he would point on the rarity of the ambers to drive up the price of them :)

    Anyone see the 9.60 F-150 Cleetus is raffling?

    Nice truck but it's a hard to stomach the "get 2.8 billion chances for every dollar you spend" crap on every YouTube channel these days.

    Current New Vehicle Market

    I thought that was a great video. In a lot of cases, the recent MSRP increases are less percentage wise compared to the dealer ADM's or non-negotiable prices. I understand the MSRP increases are due to several factors and the fact that you get a lot more vehicle for the money these days than...

    my 99 isn't very happy

    In my personal experience, any shifting issue I ever had ended up being the trans itself. I don't think it's a clutch, fluid issue

    Fed reports household debt increases faster than any time in the past 20 yrs

    Car at exhaust shop: suddenly no longer starting

    I don't know anything around PATS, but I suspect it wouldn't allow it to start at all. It's starting to sound like a mechanical issue to me. Did you check the oil and coolant to make sure nothing was mixing?

    Are these stock 01 Cobra pistons?

    Thanks guys. I got a better look and they're stock. I do think there's a small dish though.

    Are these stock 01 Cobra pistons?

    Also the tops look like there's some machining as they're not totally smooth

    Are these stock 01 Cobra pistons?

    I searched the web and came up empty. I put a snake cam down the cylinders of my 01 Cobra and I have what appears to be flat top pistons. I thought they had a small dish and only mach 1s had true flat tops but I guess I could be wrong. I only see a part number on one which is odd or maybe just...

    Timing and knock question

    Thats what I figured. I'm a LONG way from 105. Maybe 95 at most :)

    Timing and knock question

    Yes, we ran the truck at the track the same day this video was taken. I may get someone to datalog and tune it. If what I'm logging is correct, I don't see why it has knock with 93 octane. fyi, my previous 01 GT ran [email protected] with just exhaust and 3.73s.

    Timing and knock question

    Good question. Here's a roll race from 2nd gear against a truck that runs [email protected] 2nd gear seems fine but it's as if I let off the gas in 3rd gear. Unless I'm completely wrong, I believe a stock 01 cobra traps in the 102-104mph area.

    Timing and knock question

    O/r x, SLP catback. Nothing else done. Seems to run great, no issues at all to report other than it is severely lacking power.

    Timing and knock question

    Just want to add it's running on 93 octane.

    Timing and knock question

    I'm trying to figure out why my 2001 cobra seems to not have full power. I just recorded a log of 2nd and 3rd gear. Timing on the hit is 16 deg and climbs to 20.25 deg at 6500rpms. 19 deg is the highest I seen in 3rd gear. Knock sensors go from 28 on the hit to 523 at 6500. Then 294 on the...

    Ford Service Center *Rant

    I once brought my Tacoma in for a recall. While waiting, one of the guys walks in to show me how dirty my air filter was (it wasn't). He asked if I wanted it changed and I said no. 6 months go by and probably 20k miles, I picked up a new filter at the parts store and proceed to change it only...
