    Next Car Recommendation?

    I sold my 2018 Mustang GT and I have been looking around for my next "sports" car. I want AWD, automatic, and four doors. I can't keep a car stock, so I don't want a car that is going to be fuel limited by having only direct injection either. I have my eyes set on a used 2017-2019 Audi RS3...

    Speedo Calibration Theory

    Hello guys. I am just trying to think something through and am wanting some other opinions. I know the analog speedometer in the dash is run off of the rear tires. I also know that Ford uses a positive 1.3403 % offset (Source: http://www.efidynotuning.com/trans.htm) for the revs/mile...

    Trouble Starting, E-85 + Warm Weather

    Have any of you experienced noticeably longer cranks and struggling to stay on after cold starts when it is warm outside with E-85?

    Will SCT X4 Drain Battery?

    Does anyone here leave their SCT X4's connected to the obd port with the ignition off and key out, lets say overnight? I am sure the device will recognize when the car is turned off, but I do not want to test it out myself.

    Hello guys, on my latest Ford service, I was told that my "rear sway links" are loose and noisey. This is my first car and I know nothing about suspension. They quoted me about $250 total to replace them. Do you guys think this is a good deal or is there something better aftermarket for my car?
