Well... That didn't last long...
Nothing fancy or dramatic. Just- tuning the idle.
Very interesting youtube channel. Fellow takes a car, puts a weird engine in it, and then tweaks and tweaks to maximize hp and fuel economy.
Currently working on a renault with a lawnmower engine. Previously, had a saturn with a 3 cyl kubota diesel. Got 80+ mph./
The King of Underground Racing vs Mitsubishi's Flagship car
Which one is better and why?
It's not quite ugly, yet not quite pretty.
Not quite hard to master, yet not the easiest.
It's not quite slow, yet not quite fast. (although it has a 216 HP engine, which is useful when going uphill)
It's a car, i guess.
So if you know someone who owns one of these, congrat them since they have... eh... a car!!
Ok, now seriously i know there are quite a number of folks out there that have a fonding for this one, and that's okay.
I just don't find it that much, interesting.
But it seems to be quite popular when it comes to Drag Racing. And i unironically believe this car would look good and stylish hanging out with VW Beetles, Mini Coopers and the like.
233 HP, take it or leave it.
Should i say more? Just look at it!
You wouldn't think this fancy sedan holds 447HP as stock would you?
Well it does. And it also looks and drives like a charm. It's expensive to get and maintain, but for the true car enjoyer, it's well worth the price.
I really like the Lotus Elise, but there's something about Vauxhall's version that just really captivates my attention.
Max (Theoretical) Power: 195 HP
And that's just for the starter cars.
Seriously, this car accelerates like a BEAST.
Max (Theoretical) Power: 304 HP
Here is one of my projects from a few years back.
Shoving a 1,000hp engine, into a long-bed pickup truck.
It was a fun project, especially since nobody would ever look at it, and think, hey, that might be fast. Nope, It was just an ugly, longbed, single-cab pickup truck.
Completely gutted on the interior with nothing but a seat, steering wheel, shifter, and gauges.
Sadly, I have retired this project due to it not being very practical for anything.
Coming soon, whenever I get off of my ass- I will be putting this powerplant into a 1987 4x4 suburban... Don't hold your breath too much, since covid occured I have not been driving too much, and this project has not been high on my list of priorities.
Just sharing the latest experiment from Garage54 to get some posts flowing.
If you have not see these guys, they do some really interesting experiments and projects.
Koenigsegg has not yet failed to surprise me with some of the technology.
The free-valve engine, and now, a 2,300hp hybrid sports car.

If it involves 2-4 wheels, and can burn rubber, this is a good place for it.
