  2. The L36 Series II 3800 is a strong motor and with restraint on the boost psi, it should hold up. Just remember that the compression ratio in the L36 is 9.4:1 while the Supercharged Series II L67 motor was reduced down to 8.4:1 and was built to handle forced induction. So you may need to start running premium gas to help prevent detonation. Another observation is the throttle body on the L67 is bigger to get more air into the motor. So you may want try to locate one from a junkyard (I am assuming that it bolts up to the stock intake for the moment too since the intake between the L36 and L67 are different).

  4. Im not going for anything crazy with the boost, like maybe 10 psi. Im trying to get something that will let me have fun with it without blowing up. I'll see if i can ask them about the PCM specs and all. But that leads me to another thing: will my stock engine internals handle a small psi like this?

  11. A cheap car used to feel like what it was: a cheap car. That’s no longer the case, and it’s due in part to exceptionally careful cost-cutting. Car manufacturers trim pennies here and dollars there in ways not always obvious to consumers. Here’s a look at a few tricks automakers use and how they’re passed onto consumers. 1...View the full article

  19. More than 48,000 examples of Jeep's compact crossover SUV—the 2018 Jeep Cherokee—are subject to a recall to address a fuel supply line that could leak. Fuel that leaks into the engine compartment from the potentially faulty supply tube could result in a fire, although Jeep says it is not aware of any fires or injuries related to the...View the full article

  21. Consumer confidence in self-driving cars is on the decline, according to a new survey. Nearly three-quarters of 1,014 Americans polled by AAA last month said that they’re afraid to ride in a self-driving vehicle. Willingness to ride in a self-driving car dropped from 64 percent late last year to just 49 percent of millennials—those...View the full article
  22. Austin, Texas, may have weaponized food trucks in our culture wars, and turned weirdness into a commodity, but it can’t take away one thing. It can’t take away the 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo’s asymmetrical doors. We know, because we just spent a day driving the Veloster in a big loop that lassoed the Texas capital but failed to...View the full article
  23. Read your directions thoroughly first (or multiple times), but I would guess that the answer is yes, some sort of feed and return line back to the block or oil pan is necessary. Any idea how many pounds of boost you will be running? I will be honest. The lack of both an included PCM tuner and a recommendation of new fuel injectors is a red flag to me about this kit. I suspect this kit is a builders kit for an experienced engine builder or racer, who might already have a tuner and may have made other tweaks to the bottom and top end of the engine. With a fuel injected motor, putting a turbo or supercharger on requires changing the air/fuel map. So I would challenge the company you got it from how they think the stock PCM is going to compensate for all the added air that the turbo is going to bring to the party. When you add more air, you have to add more fuel to keep the air/fuel ratio as close to stochiometric (14.7 parts air to one part fuel) ) as possible. Today ideal AFR is actually closer to between 12.8:1 to 13.2:1. Another thing to consider is under hood temperatures. Compressing air generates heat. That could result in raised coolant and under hood temperatures. So keep an eye on things. You don't want a melt down or a fire because of excessive heat built up in the engine compartment
  24. the kit im looking at is the exhaust headers, a crossover pipe, waste gate and the t4 turbo. it has an oil line included and will indeed fit under the stock hood. It was custom fabricated to fit under there. New exhaust is no big deal to me, ive got enough pipes. There are also no 'recommended' parts. As for the cooler, i've found one for a few more bucks that i can buy separately. will i need to poke a hole into the oil pan for the oil to feed into the Turbo?

  26. The federal agency that oversees new car safety and emissions standards may go even longer without an official leader. On Tuesday, a Senate committee pushed back a vote on the Trump administration's new NHTSA administrator nominee over concerns about how she plans to handle an ongoing airbag recall that has affected numerous automakers.
