Looking for opinions, just pulled the leading plugs on the RX-7 post dyno tune, not many miles on these. I think they look ok, a little dark, but the ceramic is a nice even coffee brown. Thoughts anyone?

[]Craig Moody

it looks fine to me but could look better, what heat range are you using? (for sebastion, owned 1 FB, 2 FC's, an FD, and the R3 rx8)

[]Robert Sixto

Heat range 9, these are NGK RE9BT, typically I use NGK BUR9EQP

Those plugs have not been in there long enough to give you an accurate depiction of what your engine is doing. They are too fresh. Outside of an obvious malfunction (totally fouled, melted, mangled, etc), they have little story to tell. It looks like the engine is burning stoichiometric for the most part. What type of fuel delivery system is in place? Do you have a method to monitor fuel trims? Is this a Renesis motor?

[]Robert Sixto

This is an S5 13B turbo. It's got bigger injectors and fuel pump, using Power FC for tune. As of now, I have no way to monitor fuel trims.

[]Lynx Star Automotive

That should be priority number 1.

[]Robert Sixto

Yes, to clarify it has been dyno tuned with the current set up. As far as I know, fuel trim monitoring just isn't possible with the Power FC, I was going to eventually get a wide band O2/AFR gauge.

Car has seen a dyno and a tuner.

[]Lynx Star Automotive

He doesn’t have a dyno, or tuner sitting shotgun to fill him in on what is happening inside his engine at all given times. Fuel trims are a way for him to know if he is too lean or too rich, because in the real world it’s not set it and forget it. Many variables at play at all given times.

2012-13 I worked in a Rotary shop. Learned to stay the hell away since then 😂

The shop across the street called my manager to complain about my parking again..They are now saying I'm blocking a driveway that they cant even use! They have it blocked by their own used car inventory​. I've been making them regret it by getting them so mad over small annoyances. #Mental_Assasin

Do you think a sign with "for a good time call (their phone number)" be a little too much?

[]Tom Armstrong

Hahaha. Then put the number to a Massage place

[]Sebastian Nounou

Lol

[]Tom Armstrong

Got any other ideas? Lolol

[]Sebastian Nounou

Put one corner on a jack stand and remove the wheel.

That’ll fuck with ‘em.

[]Tom Armstrong

Omg you’re a monster

Muahahahahahaha

Get a “how’s my parking” bumper sticker? 🤔 lol

Here's an idea, buy a Tesla Model 3, and trigger that stupid "holiday show" mode every hour. Yes it's an expensive way to troll, but how all-in are you?

Anyone know what’s wrong with my car ? Car started to jolt on cold start up for a few seconds. Rpm moved slightly as well 53,000 miles 2014 BMW 435i xdrive No engine mods just cold air intake This is about the 3rd time I notice this happen

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

More than likely a cold start misfire due to a weak ignition coil. They start to give out around your mileage. Not uncommon. I would have it scanned with a proper scan tool (ISTA, Autologic, etc) and I would check for any stored DTC's, as well as check smooth running values, and misfire counters. Your car being an F chassis, you now have the ability to see misfire counters.

[]Caleb Krebs

its probably completely different on my car because my car is alot older than yours, however, i've had this when my idle air control valve was going out. I'm not sure what part that is in your car, but its a place to start!

[]David Velez

I believe I had the AC on when the car started (Arizona ...106 degress) thanks !!

[]Caleb Krebs

That could definitely be the source as well! geez.. 106..

[]Sebastian Nounou

Any codes present?

Some guy just tried to spit on my car on the highway because he didn’t merge correctly when we got on the highway. He was supposed to merge with me in the first place, he was running me off the road 😂😂😂 #intro #mazda #rant #speed3 #carporn #advice

I drove trucks and vans with trailers in the NYC metro area, merging isn't that hard in a passenger vehicle, period. You fell victim to self-important jackassery here, he deserved to go first because he deemed himself the most important person, besides, his truck is bigger than your car. There is no winning with these people.

The best thing is to try and chill out, which I personally suck at, I've gotten better but I once shover a Trailblazer off the road who attempted to shove me off the road, and I did so in a slammed 1993 VW Passat. I was 19, them running off the road wasn't my goal, defending my rightful merging positions, and it was a stupid thing to do, but my point is that car size doesn't matter. He ran off the road because he wasn't paying attention to the fact that the roadway was falling away and he was too busy concentrating on trying to continue hundreds of feet past the merge lane to shove in. Instead he slid down a slight hill and gut stuck in a ditch.

Meanwhile I know someone who got deliberately rammed for some perceived slight. The person I know was stopped in a ferry line at the time which made an insult hard to identify. How do you offend someone with a parked car? It was a very confusing scenario.

I just avoid these people to the best of my ability these days, it's not worth risking psychopathic behavior from someone who feels invincible because they're in a metal box.

[]Sebastian Nounou

Holy shit dude lol.

[]Tom Armstrong

Merging has to be the biggest fail for all drivers. I see it everywhere, people don’t understand how to “zipper” into a lane. There’s always that asshole trying to win the freeway championships.....losers

[]Sebastian Nounou

When I had to learn state law for being a driving instructor I was shocked at how much conflicted with near states.

That said, the concept of yield to traffic on the interstate while merging/merge slightly quicker than the flow of traffic is a lost concept on 99% of drivers.

The standard of driver education in the US is abysmal, and I don’t see it being helped any time soon given the mass ignorance-accompanied entitlement problem we have.

[]Robert Sixto

My wife ran into this recently, she wasn't turning left through an intersection fast enough apparently for the maniac behind her. Pisses me off that people can't be adults and keep their heads about them. I shouldn't feel like I might be thrown into a combat situation just driving to/from somewhere.

[]Sebastian Nounou

I feel you 1000%. Gets me worked up and I hate it.

I yell to myself in the car not gonna lie but I can’t stand when people take it too far or they act like you were in the wrong when really they just don’t know how to drive.

OEM hardware is usually really good stuff. These bushings for an intake pipe I removed from my 540i could be super useful in the future for a different project. Keep the hardware you remove; it could come in handy

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Wilson Oberholzer

Keeping the hardware I take off of stuff and replace has resulted in me having 2 boxes full of unsorted bolts, washers, and other little bits. I'm going to need to dump it all out and organize it sometime.

[]Hayden Baker

I did that like 4 years ago and I am so glad I did. I have a small bucket to toss things in that I periodically organize.

[]Sebastian Nounou

To be fair, BMW rubber is some of the worst I’ve ever seen lol. I throw it away where ever possible.

I stole the PVC drill holder from Pintrest. The drill bits and socket attachments were my idea. There are sharpies in their own holes just to the right. If it's not easily accessible, you probably won't use it.
