Re: Racetrack Stuff

God bless the power of the internet. "I bet the white striped wire for the oil pressure sensor is plugged into the starter instead of the solid black one, they have the same plugs and it's a common mistake"

Re: Racetrack Stuff

Well, a buddy and I spent 10 hours banging away on the car yesterday. Swapped everything on to the new engine, got it in the car, got everything bolted in and hooked up everything (narrator voice: they did not) and refilled all the fluids and turned the key and....

Looks like a blast. I’m total hack so it’s impossible for me to advise. I will say as smooth as you are you probably won’t get much faster. The only corners that may have been problematic were the 3 slowest. Getting out of them quick in a momentum car is hard. In pure conjecture I think you may be ...

The CLA story is blowing up. Guy posted his AG complaint and dealership response. His whole complaint boils down to this: I towed my car in after hours, gave keys to someone, told them there is no oil in the engine. On Monday they called me and said engine is blown. They owe me a new engine because...
