If you've replaced your starter anytime recently, make sure your starter nuts are tight. That made for some wonky charging issues with my car.

My lemon.

My "Overheating...again" thread reflects the recent woes of my cooling system on Drover. Here's the deal. When I bought it at 152k in need of a starter on June 6, I figured it would make for an ok...

Well, after replacing the radiator I test drove it again. Leaking at the lower rad hose. Repositioned the clamp, stopped that leak, test drove again. Now it's leaking like crazy from the back of...

Mine is named Drover, after the not-very-brilliant stubtail assistant mutt in Hank the Cowdog. Hilarious stories if you listen to the audios read by the author.

Why so much hate for compacts?

I'm puzzling something out here. We all love our cars but we're all also aware that they're some of the most unappreciated BMWs in history...though I'm sure the new FWD 2 series will take that cake...

Holset hx50...it'll make 600 horsepower for 2 seconds! Seriously, these engines aren't going to make too much beyond 250whp without major engine work. If this is your first car, I would focus on...

MisterM52, have you considered making m10 blower setups for the early model e30 guys? It would make an 85 318i actually worth having.

I'm not speaking from personal experience, but at those power levels you might want to consider if it would be more cost effective to do an M5x swap and turbo it on stock internals, as I'm pretty...

Will there be a significant difference between the cost of a kit that uses the bottom half of the manifold for the Eatons vs one that retains the stock manifold fully?

Just educated myself a bit on the SC14. Pretty excited to see where this goes. The clutch that lets you switch it on and off is especially appealing to me. 300 crank would be terrific! Hopefully...

Well, it all came down to a case of the monkey turning the wrench (welp, that's me). The nut that attaches the heavy red cable as well as a black ground cable to the new starter was backing off and...

Which of those superchargers will support the 300hp? Would that setup need intercooling, and where do the stock injectors max out?
