    Purolator Boss PBL15607

    I've had good luck with this filter on the N54 135i. Made in Germany with the same end caps as the OEM Mann filter. I like the reinforced filter material. If they start making one for the M3 than I'd use it too. Currently using it with Royal purple HPS 5W30 and risoline nano prime. Thanks for...

    Charging system issues

    I have a 2005 Mini coopwe S, I installed the Scangauge 2 into the obd 2 port and my voltage while the car is running AT IDLE is at around 12.2 with the a/c on. If I turn all the loads off than I get to about 13.3-13.5 volts. If I turn on ALL the loads than it will get as low as 10.3 volts. When...

    My Seafoam experience.

    This is on a 1996 Mazda Miata with about 165k miles on the engine if the odometer is to be believed. Ever since I overheated my engine I've been going through a gallon of oil every 4k ish miles or so. A literal gallon. Of Shell Rotella T6. So basically I'd buy two containers of T6, One for the...

    How to strengthen aluminum block threads.

    I have a 1999 BMW 328i and I was curious to know what could be done to strengthen the threads on the aluminum block. What would happen on these engines is that with F/I and an iffy tune the cylinder head would rise and rip the threads out of the block. (If using Arp hardware.) Now this can be...

    Scion FRS 521hp at 20psi. Stock Motor.

    Time to clean up the boonies in my reverse lights.

    Well that's it. I've had it. I'm tired of having to drain and clean my reverse lights of water and algae. They still work but when they get the algae in them they start to look like the set of Green acres. So I bought some Chinese Replacements because that was the only pair that I could find...

    Electrical connector insulation.

    ATF flush on my car is confusing me.

    Okay. I wan't to change the ATF fluid on my car to Max-life so the whole car can have synthetic fluid in it, Also due to the fact that when i'm off roading the transmission gets really hot and periodicity I have to let it cool down. The manual only says how much to add to the transmission if...

    Yet another issue! Shaking at idle, loss of power.

    I writing this about 140km from home. I started this morning with no issues with the car and all the driving was on the interstate and highways, right until the the very end. The more I drove on the interstate the more I had to floor it just to keep up with traffic. If I go up a hill on the...

    CUT OPEN Used defective Denso Toyota oil filter.

    So I decided to cut open my oil filter to see what it looked like on the inside. (duh) <img src="http://i49.tinypic.com/1pv23c.jpg" alt="" /> <img src="http://i46.tinypic.com/30nhx1e.gif" alt="" /> (^That was my reaction.) That's what the Anti drain back valve looked like when I took...

    2012 Ford F350 With the 6.2 and 5 speed manual.

    Hey guys this is more of a question about the transmission which is a Tremec TR-4050. I'm considering purchasing a brand new 2012 F-350 with a 6.2 V8 and fully intergated stock natural gas system along with the regular gasoline. I was wondering if this was a decent transmission to be able to...
