    Egged out Upper Torque Box - BMR reinforcement Fix?

    UCA mount holes are egged out causing the arms to wobble. Would the BMR reinforcement kit be a bolt in solution? Seems like it would be the ultimately the same as having a shop weld in some washers.

    Kenne Bell Install - WTF

    Seriously. I bolt it down to make clearance I can't get the rail in there, if I put the rail in I can't bolt it down. Am I supposed to take the whole rear housing off?

    Tuning Software Options

    I currently have a jank ass tune on a SCT X3. I don't think the X3 allows me to do jack as far as tuning, it appears to be nothing but an upload device to put a tune on the car. Megasquirt PNP is solid and my friend can tune it. It would give a ton of data to help diagnose any underlying...

    How/Where to Repair a CV/Axle Splines?

    I screwed up. Got in a rush when the end wasn't popping over the c-clip, whacked it with a hammer and I'm crying now. Rebuilding CV's for my R32 (GT-R spec axles) and now the splines are marred up a bit. I tried cleaning it up some with a file, but the outer portion won't "slip" on. I'd love...

    "I just want to lay on a beach and relax" and other stupid vacations....

    So I've notice that women are all about the "beach vacation" - whatever the location, they just dream and wax poetically about going to the beach and relaxing by doing nothing. Personally, I absolutely detest these types of vacations. The fly down to Cancun, Dominican, Florida, etc - pay big...

    Car Audio- and "Growing Up"

    Having a baby - and two project cars - really shifts priorities So both of my last two trucks came without sound systems - as the previous owners pulled their audio systems. The Tundra I tossed in some old Rockford 6.5 + tweeters up front. I forget the model, paid like $400 back in 2014...

    Fuel Economy?

    I'm blazing through gas driving the 2500 to the new job right now $100+ wk at ~10.5mpg standard. Would mid teens be possible in a KB 2.2 Cobra with 60#s and 3.31? Would bumping up to a 3.55 or 3.73 actually help? Haven't touched Satan's Cobra in about a year now.. thinking of getting as MS PNP...

    Hydro-Boost Elimination ?

    So, I hate the Hydro-Boost. Always have. Can't even pull a valve cover because of it. Is there any effective way to eliminate it? I know it's there because in 1996 Ford could not fit a vacuum booster for the brakes. Any more modern solution? Any street-able Manual Brake kits? My 3.2 911 had...

    Dash Vin Question

    So a buddy bought an out of state project car and it's missing its dash and naturally the that Vin tag. Didn't even occur to him that it might be a problem getting it titled and registered. What's the SOP for such a situation? Get a tag made? Run it with no dash tag? Won't the DMV throw a...

    Used Car Prices...

    Ummm, what the hell is going on? I've been looking for a truck and it seems like in the last 6 months used car prices have spike 30% easily. I thought we are in the middle of an economic collapse so we should be seeing deals like it's 2008-2010 again.

    So I need a new truck. Looking to dump the Taco and pick up a full size. Here's the irony, I want a full size, V8 and better towing then the V6 Taco. Truck needs to be off road capable. So naturally I keep looking at Single Cab OBS and Squarebody Chevys. So roughly smaller cabs with zero...
