Re: Turbo + supercharger + EV = too much?

I'll weigh in on this. You know, because opinions are like certain body parts. I agree that there is just too much going on in cars these days. But with new environmental regulations and safety regulations it was inevitable that the costs and complexity of cars would increase. With the shortage of a...

Re: Help needed with Volvo 850 engine popping noise Topic is solved

Look at how the engine vibrates when it makes the noise. Is that knocking/misfire? Burned valve? It doesn't sound like piston slap. Could be a weird sounding rod knock. The serpentine belt is long and it takes several rotations of the engine for it to hit the same point in the belt. Does the noise g...

I am experiencing acute garage envy despite the commandment not to covet your neighbor's (or forum mate's) facilities.
I've been in it. It's a nice big pole barn with lots of space. :-)

Re: OEM Exhaust rusted after four years. Recommendations?

If you have anything in there it is locked in there permanently and protected from anyone (including yourself) who may want to remove the contents of your glove box. This has happened t...
