Do I just suck it up and pay the tax? I'm tired of spending every day looking for a car and I just want to get something already
Warehouse wage slave here with desire for something more fun than my mundane Corolla. Part of me wants some fast and zippy, but I really don't care to go fast. Part of me wants a truck or Jeep to go offroading but would realistically go twice a year.... Then stuck with a gas hog.
What to do......
A) Save yerr money kid
B) Consider Civic Si or V6 Accord (or other) I can barely afford and drive it like a grandma
C) Get an old hoopty off roader I can barely afford and drive it on dirt twice a year
I'm completing my degree in mechanical engineering here in Brazil. My thesis for obtaining the title of engineer will be based on the installation of a supercharger in my Dodge 1800 Polara (sold in the USA as Plymouth Cricket, and in Europe/Oceania as Hillman Avenger). The point is that in Brazil you only know how to install turbo, and we don't have the supercharger culture, the material about it is scarce. I don't have any supercharger books to support my thesis. I found some articles on Google Schoolar, but nothing deepening with the teachings and care that I must have in the assembly of the same. I need books preferably in .mobi, .epub or .pdf to be able to read. I know there are books for sale on amazon, however, 1 real = 5 dollars, making access to paid material very expensive...
I will use a programmable electronic injection system (speeduino for the price, Fueltech's headquarters is less than 300mi from here, however, it's out of my budget), which will control bypass valves and other systems for pressure control. I also want to create a control ratio on the speeduino based on the ratio of the dynamic compression of the cylinder to the positive pressure of the supercharger. Why not a turbo? Supercharger gives me almost all of its boost instantly, and as my goal is to increase the efficiency of this engine, I need full boost at all times for good control. Thanks for listening!

Allegedly these people know how to drive manual but it all falls apart when you give them a big engine.
Why do you trust the opinions of 'e-celebs' that don't know how to drive?
