Back in 2012, I wrote and article about how absurd Obama’s 54.5 mpg CAFE regulations were. You can see that article, which is still relevant, here. One of the things I mentioned in that article was how Jimmy Carter did a similar thing back in the 70’s but thankfully was repealed by the Regan administration. History […]
A while back I received this Flowmaster Pro Series muffler as a promotional item from Autoanything.com. I have been sitting on the muffler for quite some time when after an alignment shop somehow managed to damage my exhaust, I had the perfect excuse to install it.

The other night I answered some questions on a forum about tuning an EFI system. I thought I did a pretty good job in my response so I posted it here.
I must say these are the worst cars and the level of development to get the car to this level is obscene. There is faster 3rd gen F-bodies, but those cars are not practical on the street at all, while mine still does ok. Not the fastest car in the world, but I think shocking […]
With the new Fast and Furious 7 movie in theaters now, I have seen a lot of traffic to my post about Paul Walkers tragic accident. His accident received a lot of attention when it happened and has been renewed with the new movie. I have seen some comments about the level of attention his passing has received; […]
The roots supercharger has its place, but many hard-core track enthusiasts who have bought the new Z06 are finding that they have severe limitations.
