How fast can my Cadillac go?

December 31st, 2010 · No Comments

I have a 1992 Cadillac Sedan Deville Executive Series with the extra chrome and it is a foot longer then the regular model caddy for at it’s time. I am wondering how fast it can go? It has a 4.6 liter V-8. A newer model Porsche has the same engine in it. I am wondering if it could eat out the Porsche that has the same engine in it? And also don’t forget to tell me how fast it can go!

How much would it cost to install air conditioning in a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle?

December 24th, 2010 · No Comments

There were factory AC packages that were sold for the beetle, but did not work well or sell well because
1) They overworked an engine that was just about right for moving the car and the passengers but not for driving a compressor.
2) Mileage tanked on hot days
3) The VW lacked sufficient interior insulattion to KEEP the cold in.
Bottom line, you can plan on an early engine death if you even manage to get one installed.. Roll down the windows and use the vent wings.

Is it possible to lower the engine compression on a 02 ford escape?

December 16th, 2010 · No Comments

Problem: I would like to know if it is possible to lower the engine compression to keep the spark plugs from blowing out, spark plug blowouts are common with ford engines because of the compression and aluminum heads that are not strong enough to hold the plugs in place under normal compression. Will lowering the compression keep this from happening again? what else could happen with lowered compression? gas mileage, horsepower, etc.

Kenne Bell Supercharged Mazda Miata Tech & Tuning Tips

August 18th, 2010 · No Comments

The Mazda engine produces a greater percentage HP gain (+65%) from 6 psi boost than any vehicle we ever supercharged. We
believe this to be the most flexible and best engineered forced induction kit available for the Mazda Miata. Installation will require
approx. 12 hours. Take your time, particularly on the wiring. Read ALL the instructions FIRST. Run 92 octane minimum. 91
octane (California and Arizona) use a slightly larger pulley and lower boost than 92.
