REbuilding rotary engines that have been damaged due to neglect in cooling seems to be a pattern for high horsepower turbocharged builds. This is caused by builds that use parts that should be put on piston engined cars, not rotaries.
Spark Plugs | Why they need attention with your high performance car
Every car on the road that runs on gasoline has spark plugs. Some cars even have 2 plugs per cylinder. Bust just like different cars have different motors, different motors have different spark plugs. On most cars, checking or changing your plugs is a simply DIY task. On a few cars, getting to the spark plugs requires a bit a disassembly or difficult access.
Most inline and V type engines have the plugs right on the top of the motor making access a snap.
H type and transversely mounted motors may have plugs mounted low and on the side of the motor or on the backside tight against the firewall. These plugs may be difficult to access or require the removal of the intake manifold. These types of motors are better left to the professional.
Failing clutch pedals on 2008 and newer Subarus seems to be a continuing issue. We are getting at least one a week to repair at the moment.
As these cars age, I am seeing an increasing number with the same problem. Seven spot welds from the factory assembly process do not hold over time and break free causing high wear on the components that depend on the factory structural integrity.
Street Performance or Race | Any modern vehicle is covered in sensors. These sensors measure temperature, pressure, electrical current, and movement.
Part 2 | A gauge is a way for us to turn these measurements into a visual scale for us to interpret. But there doesn't have to be one gauge for every sensor. In fact, there can be hundreds of sensors and no gauges.
When it comes to choosing what gauges you want in your car, first you need to find out what sensors are already installed from the factory, then you decide on what level of information you want to see. More isn’t always better.
