Motorheads

This is a general automotive thread great for talking about cars, and small projects. Feel free to talk about anything with a motor. Bikes, boats, tractors, semis, you get the point.

If you want to start a large project I’d suggest starting your own thread, and telling us about your thread in here. This will make it easier for users to follow and look back on your builds.

I’ll add your build threads and car lists to this first post under the “user links” section bellow.

I have owned a surprising number of vehicles, but I wasn’t able to work on them lol.

Mazda Protege
Ford Mustang
Ford Taurus
Ford Focus
Kia Soul

There was a Ford bug in my family. Now they’re on a Chevy kick. Weird people, but funny :grin:

I often wish I knew about cars what I know about computers and networks.

I’m gonna come over to texas and install a supercharger for ya.

Because every kia needs a supercharger.

Honestly, cars are super fun and interesting. I’d love to do a writeup on tuning one of these days.

Turbo?

Hey me too! :smiley:

It is great. With a new set of tires and some all in one windshield wipers this beast is all terrain :wink:

I never thought of them when I was younger. But they have crazy sex appeal lol

I saw a Kia Rio in a junk yard with a tac that red-lined at 8K, and I drove a Kia Forte koup that was way faster then I was expecting.

They have the same power so it doesn’t really matter, but the baby turbo sounds are so much fun, along with feeling the boost build.

Kia used to be much worse. They’ve gotten significantly better recently.

They’re on my list of things to consider as of approx 2015.
