    Sounds like a typical Civic with a fart can.

    Edit: There is really quite a bit of water in that exhaust. Maybe that is affecting the sound somewhat?

    Not the prettiest Porsche prototype car, but hopefully it can outrun its looks. ;)



    Sounds like something akin to the current F1 cars, mounting a motor/generator on the turbocharger shaft that...

    Right, but there are many so-called "tuners" who don't have the first idea about properly engineering a product, nor do they employ actual engineers. APR does it the right way, and it's expensive.
    ...
  4. Different requirements for mounting the...

    Different requirements for mounting the intercoolers and the rest of the kit too. Looks like they give you a vented fender liner as well. APR is an engineering firm, not a tuner. Either it required...
  5. Basically yes, but depending on how sturdy the...

    Basically yes, but depending on how sturdy the torque converter clutch is, they can be quite aggressive at locking it before it naturally stalls. The limit is how much punishment the relatively small...

    Nice find on the technical paper. At this point I'm just looking forward to datalogs from a production Z06.
  7. Full disclosure: I own a BRZ, and I used to own...

    Full disclosure: I own a BRZ, and I used to own an Evo VIII.

    That being said, I think overall the FA20 will prove to be a stronger engine, and there is already tremendous aftermarket support. The...

    Every exterior body panel except the roof, IIRC, is different. I believe many of the interior panels are different as well. Every previous WRX is pretty much identical to the Impreza, with the...

    The new WRX/STi is based on the 4th gen Impreza chassis. Subaru may claim extra generations in between but there have really only been 4 clean sheet designs. This is the first WRX that "isn't an...

    That would require an extensive redesign of their AWD system. The Cayman engine sits pointing in the correct direction with the transmission behind the engine. The 911 engines are truly backwards in...

    Reading between the lines: Powertrain warranty cancelled.

    Maybe if they had a pair of twins in the nude posing on top of the engines? Twins on twins on twins on twins.
  13. 991: On the 911 Turbo, the rear quarter panel inlets...

    On the 911 Turbo, the rear quarter panel inlets are for the intercoolers. Where the hell are they getting air from? Did they move the intercoolers? Why go through the trouble if it makes the same...
  14. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: BMW isn't the only one who does this. Even the...

    BMW isn't the only one who does this. Even the "curb weight" is usually optimistic. I want to say Road & Track (though maybe it's C&D) weighs almost every car they test, and they publish the claimed...
  15. MKIII: The only things that looks out of place to me are...

    The only things that looks out of place to me are the machined aluminum uprights for the wing. Looks great otherwise, and 420 hp from a four cylinder with a warranty is amazing.

    For the Huracan? http://www.lamborghini.com/en/models/huracan-lp-610-4/explore/

    Page 4, select "Italian Craftsmanship"

    Won't let me cut and paste to here. At least without grabbing the whole...

    The Huracan V10 has direct and port injection. I wonder if this system will end up in the R8 as well. AFAIK, the current R8 is direct injection only.
  18. C190 SLC: Looks like they're trying to save money by using...

    Looks like they're trying to save money by using the BRZ/FR-S window and quarter glass. :D

    To be serious, I think there's somthing a bit TVR-ish about it. I think this render makes it look quite...
  19. S14: Very nice build and great numbers. 2.7 liters is...

    Very nice build and great numbers. 2.7 liters is quite large for an inline 4 cylinder. I'm not terribly familiar with the S14. Does it use balance shafts? If so, does this build retain them?
  20. A public apology for what? You quote my post, and...

    A public apology for what? You quote my post, and directly insult me in your response. You post no evidence backing up your claims. The whole point of a discussion forum is to actually hold a...
  21. Which engineer did you talk to who told you the...

    Which engineer did you talk to who told you the transmission choice was purely for economic reasons? Which GM truck uses the 8l90? Any supporting information for your claims besides your own...

    As a mechanic with no experience on Nissan, that looks like a fairly easy timing chain, but a bastard of a timing cover.

    If I still had it today, it would have a pair of Garrett turbos, Ohlins suspension, and forged BBS wheels with sticky tires. What were you talking about? :p

    You are absolutely right. A journal bearing turbo is always inferior to a ball bearing turbo in performance applications, disregarding price. I also agree that a serious vendor should have no trouble...

    Many years ago, I had a VAG I could use at any time. I still miss it to this day. Sometimes I dream about it.
