I recently had this 2012 BMW 528i (f10) referred to me from a local dealer. The complaint? Bad timing chain guide rail. However, this one took it one step further. Watch my video, I was able to save this one. https://youtu.be/evDp_cPhFxU #guides #advice #BMW #N20 #timingchain #BMW528 #BMW328 #BMWX3

So I haven’t been particularly active lately alot has been going on, but we changed the spark plugs on the wrx and found that 2 of the plugs were improperly gapped & cylinder 1’s was cracked and cylinder 4s was completely broken in half. For anyone curious the gap is supposed to be 0.030 2 were at 0.045/0.046 the other two were around the proper gap. Basically the shop who swapped my motor NEVER changed the spark plugs. So

One of the best ways to cheaply improve any car is to borrow from other similar cars from the same manufacturer. The EcoBoost Mustang owners can buy all sorts of used parts from GT owners who are selling their stock parts after buying aftermarket pieces. This practice is nothing new; before there even was an aftermarket, hot rodders were using OEM parts to improve their performance. The 350Z doesn’t have a ton of easy options as it was the

How To - Remove a stock Engine from an E36 M3 Part 1 of 2 I embarked on the removal of the S52 out of the M3 this past weekend, and while this wasn't my first time doing an engine removal, it was my first time doing one solo. In college I helped one of my fraternity brothers swap out his failed S50 for an S52 in his M3, so I had some knowledge of what needed to

The Idea As a car enthusiast we’re always wishing that there could be more car related events but sometimes that just isn’t the case. Why is that? Well most people are just waiting for someone else to be the one to set something up. Whether you want to get a couple local car guys together, be a part of the biggest car show in the state, or you want to get your car to the local drag strip you can

I hate to waste things, but inevitably when you mod cars for a hobby, you end up generating waste that is seemingly useless. Some of this is recyclable for pennies per pound, or sometimes more in the case of aluminum, or it ends up as landfill. So I like to get creative with my useless spare parts. The first item I have are these custom planter bases. The large pot is perched upon a weathered B5 Audi S4 front

My girlfriend parked under a tree that dropped a big ol' splat of sap on the front of her car. Sap/pitch can read havoc on paint and clear coats, so it's important to remove these things as quickly as possible. However, that's often easier said than done. Here's how I handle this sticky situation. ;-) First thing that I like to do is use a plastic tool, or a piece of card stock in a pinch, to scrape the

Today I decided to give the splashguard of the Z a little love while I had it off. On the lower side it got a thorough treatment of AMMO Mud. This should help it stay flexible, shed water and dirt, and give it that new black plastic look. These are old 90s plasticized fiberboard panels so there is no treatment for the top. I ended up cracking it at a bend when taking it off so I decided it should

So I’ve been borrowing a friend’s Hero5 Session for a while because he’s out of town, and I told myself, if I consistently use it for those three months, I’ll buy myself one. Well, those three months are up and it’s time to find my own Action Cam. Upon conferring with other track enthusiasts, I got a large varying assortment of answers on the best camera, on the scale of $150-$1000+. I decided to set some guidelines, to narrow

Today I’m going to discuss how to restore your old cloudy headlights to near new condition. There are many products and methods available for this task but I personally prefer to use the NuLens Headlight Restoration Kit from Mothers #07251 as it is the easiest I have found and produces the best results. The kit comes with a 3-inch Backing Plate, PowerBall 4Lights Polishing Tool, Headlight Lens Restoration Discs, and 8 oz. PowerPlastic 4Lights Polish. Product notes from Mothers

My hope for this post is to have it be able to apply to anyone from the entry level enthusiast to someone who just doesn’t know that much about Subarus or why people buy them. This will primarily focus on the sportier models like the WRX/STi, as they are the primary pick for enthusiasts, but it will also cover the brand as a whole. 1. The Community & Brand The community surrounding these cars is always helpful and welcoming to

Sometimes us techs get so comfortable in our working environment, we benignly coordinate our days and schedules without taking into account the possibility of underlining obstacles, or complications. After all, automotive repair requires a three dimensional thinker, who can step outside box and provide a reaction to a consequence. So when I received this 2008 e90 for a starter motor (which I confirmed circuit integrity, and isolated to a mechanical failure), it was only going to be

From time to time, from friends or the general individual at the local car meet, I get asked a pretty typical question..."What should I look for if I want to buy an RX-7?". It seems there is a lot of mystery with buying these cars, I thought it might be a good opportunity to go over some of the things I would look for if I'm in the market for a RX7. For the sake of keeping it simple

It should send shivers down your spinal cord because it usually translates into “empty the savings acct”. The EPS warning lamp is one no dub owner wants to see. Sadly, it is not a matter of if, but when. A little back story as to what happened: lately in Miami the weather has been a mixture of blistering heat, and torrential downpours. I was in a rush to pick up some parts as deliveries were

If you've done any research on modding Honda S2000's you might know that the Invidia exhausts are some of the most popular choices among starter builds. I've had the dual exit q300 on my car for over a year now, but I'll get into all that later. First off, why are they so popular? THE PROS: The simple answer to that is that they're a good bang for your buck. If I remember correctly, mine cost under 600 dollars
