From the day I bought mine, it's smelled of coolant after a hard drive. I think I've added maybe a qt or so in 15K miles. I don't worry about it. I've never seen a drip or noticed it in the...

A similar design, although not completely divorced, was implemented in F1 this year. Basically, the turbine shaft was wound with a coil of wire. The turbine housing was a big magnet. During...

Early 99 Intake Spider Questions

So I bought off of the bay an intake spider that was labeled as E99. It was supposed to be off of a truck with a build date of 12/1998 (that should be E99, correct?). However, when it arrived, I...

If you want fuel economy, stay away from the CUCV. It's got 4.56 gears and a turbo 400 trans (no over drive). They go about 55 with the engine standing on the red-line. They also have a rather...
