  4. 2018 Infiniti Q70

    Nailing down the 2018 Infiniti Q70 is hard to do. It wears full-size clothes with a mid-size interior that can be stretched in a long-wheelbase version. It offers a choice among three engines—with available all-wheel drive for two of those—and is mated exclusively to a 7-speed automatic. It hasn’t changed in a while, and its...View the full article

    New motor. The spare on my engine stand has all my Blower parts. Crank/rods/forged pistons and my destroyed blower cam. (soooo bummed, it's my Kenne Bell cam!) It's new....fired and never made it out the driveway. Spun a cam bearing. The one in the car should have never held up 20 yrs. Thrown together junk, shouldn't have held up to the blower, let alone all the tire smoking burnouts over the years. I do have the Gran National motor sitting there too, already set up for boost. But I don't know anything about it. Pull the intake/turbo and go through the lower end. OR I have the backup block I've been meaning to transfer all my GOOD stuff into for the last 20 yrs. Anyway ya shake it, gonna move some junk out of the garage.
  6. 2018 Kia Soul

    With last year’s turbocharged personality implant a success, the 2018 Kia Soul takes a year off from big change. Sold in base Kia Soul, Plus and Exclaim models, it’s still among our favorite compact hatchbacks, as much for its versatility as for its style. Still, we think the newly available automatic emergency braking should be...View the full article
  7. Same as before. There is room for all of God's creatures....right next to the mashed potatoes and gravy.

    So what do you have to do to the Bird to get her road worthy again?
  10. My 08 dodge Challenger / Superbird

    Yer welcome anytime ... just take what you see. Hell, any roofers here? The cottage roof is a simple affair but needs done pronto. What I want to see is if the flashers work. I've never seen a BMW with working ones.

    Don't know if the Bird has that much of a roadtrip left in it. Was smokin pretty good on way home from Golling. Stopped at a light and had a bike run up the shoulder and sit next to me instead of turning. As the light got ready to change, I pulled the R's up to make him think I was gonna put his 2 wheel ass in the dirt and got a big puff of smoke. Funny to watch him take off like a bat outta hell with a cop also sitting at the light. Thought for sure the cop would have chased him down, but no. Really want it there for Sellers, but always have the GTO. Do have my new wheel to show off.

    Which critter - Goat or Bird?
  13. A Hellcat Durango!?! Oh Hellcat Yes Please ! I drove a 2017 Hemi 5.7 Durango Sport to and from Hilton Head this summer. It came with paddle shifters!!!! What domestic truck or SUV do know you comes with paddle shifters? This thing was fun to drive (when the wife was not in the vehicle). I can only imagine what a Hellcat drivetrain would do to this thing !!!! Shades of the Viper V10 Ram pickups. Yes I know someone built this as a phantom vehicle, but if Dodge built it they will buy it
  14. My 08 dodge Challenger / Superbird

    So you are saying there is never a good time to crash your place in Montreal? So let's raid GE's toybox then. He's got lots of them plus the stump water. I wanna' run the crap out of his Beemer too.

  19. 2018 Jaguar XJ

    The 2018 Jaguar XJ is the British automaker's flagship luxury sedan, and the car that leads the way for the brand’s styling direction. It cuts a striking shape on the outside, and is luxurious though a bit blingy on the inside. It stands out among full-size luxury sedans for its sporty character, which is made possible by its body’s...View the full article

  26. Engine Block rust removal advice please...

    Ok I get it.. I'll do that then...thanks
  27. Engine Block rust removal advice please...

    Actually I meant isopropyl, but you are correct the will wash the assembly lube away , but so will anything you pump through, even oil! You'll have to make a decision. If there is enough water, and it won't take much, it will wipe the bearings, oil or not. If you decide to use the alcohol and the oil, when you're done, sorry I know it's a lot of work, loosen the rocker arms, take out the push rods and lifters re-coat the cam through the lifter holes, then the bottom of the lifters. Then before you put the intake on pour STP over the lifters. This will protect things during break in. Your other choice is heat the to 300f and circulated the oil at 300 till the block reachs 300. This should boil off the water. You'll still have the same issue withe the cam pre-assembly lube though.
