    I've got an Engle .550" lift cam, but I don't think it's made in Brazil. Just sitting in the box, brand new, never been installed. I think it needs to larger Alfa buckets, but that's what I've been...

    GTIspirit, what are the smog requirements for your state? On my Mk1 Wabbit, I just use a 12" flex pipe, to a 24" cherry bomb glass pack, to a 45 degree down pipe, and exit the exhaust right in front...

    Well, that's why they went to the 8 port "torx" type bolt instead of the 6 point socket head cap style.

    How many times have your stripped out a CV bolt, and had to use a vice grips to remove it?

    Look for an older Dodge 2500 Cummins Turbo Diesel. You won't even know the trailer is behind you. I have a 1998.5 4x4, crew cab and when I towed up to Portland in 2003 with a dual axle open...

    Just keep an eye on the oil pressure gauge, or install a light on the low oil pressure sender.

    P.S. I bet it was the #3 rod bearing? How do I know that? Don't ask.

    As much camber as you can in the front, with a little bit (1/8" or 3/16") of toe out in the front.

    Not much you can do with the rear, except for shims, if you have them.

    Sandro, the only one that I've blown through on track, was an inside CV joint. Never lost an outer, but always replace both 1/2 shafts every season.
