    How to make a 10 second car

    Wouldnt start with a fwd car that's for sure... think most 10sec cars are turbo/sc V8 atm. A light, cheap rwd platform, fox body mustang or late model camaro/firebird. ofc with big bucks one could build tt supra or gtt skyline.

    Priorities when buying

    When i bought my car i only had my eyes on that one model. Wanted a cool, aggressive, loud sports car that sent a message to hippies:toung: MPG didnt matter so long as it didnt completely rape my wallet, and didnt even think about insurance until i found out how expensive it is...:embarrest...

    What car should i get

    They recommend the 180SX because you're not supposed to leave it to stock power. Aftermarket exhaust, bigger turbo (nothing too big or you lose power down low), cold air intake and remapped/chipped engine control unit bring the power up. There are many 300bhp nissans out there. But remember...

    Tax and your car buying choices

    I just buy pre-2001 models so the tax is based on vehicle weight and I can get away with poisoning the environment with gas guzzling yank iron :)

    Best first car mod

    a 5 inch bore aftermarket free-flow exhaust w/o mufflers to make the car go and sound like a racecar!! New wheels or steering wheel should bring most joy to the average car owner as most cars don't really benefit from intake/exhaust mods. Remap is ofc no.1 for turbocharged cars. Tho not a mod...

    Car Insurance for modified cars - tips and a guide

    Are you guys serious with your premiums? 3.5K a year for a 206? I thought i was being had from behind here in Finland. I insured my first car (95 Firebird 3.4) with partial coverage (is that a term?) when i was 19 for 1.6k€. Usually everything car related has extra cost attached here but i guess...

    vauxhall nova how to turbo

    Going to end up costing more than you paid for the car and you'll probably blow up the engine if you don't rebuild the bottom end. Unless you definitely want to keep that car...

    Look at the car and know the owner

    While driving to work today i saw a slowly moving small fiat (punto? uno?) on the motorway and thought it must be an older woman... pretty close, probably in her early 30s and chatting on the phone on a busy motorway!:eek: I quickly moved out of the harms way in my Pontiac :lol: Seems people...

    £7k to spend... But what should I get?

    Latest models of the Pontiac Trans Am/Chevy Camaro Z28 are ten years old. Good value, not sure how much they go for on that island of yours though. 98-02 models had the LS1 V8 which is pretty economical and easy to get power out of. Probably won't see one every day, which is a plus;)

    Two unidentified cables coming from the dash, two cables in the glove box for a screen or playstation or something and a 300W amp in the trunk. The upper part of the center console is aftermarket with a switch for anti-theft system, another strange switch and a retrofitted cd-player. They're...

    Thanks mate. Everytime I tell someone bout my plans they tell me to get a V8. Anyways, I was thinkin' a 3400 hybrid conversion, meaning ported aluminum heads from a 2000+ FWD 3.4 engine (Grand Am GT), along with aggressive cam, custom pushrods, LS6 springs for higher redline, etc. 220RWHP is...

    Hi guys I registered a while back (2 years? 3?) when I got interested 'bout cars for the first time. Was active for a while, but haven't visited the site for over a year, but I figured, since I finally got my own car, might as well make a comeback:cool:. Bought a 95 Firebird, with an anemic...
