    School me on enclosed car haulers

    I have a 24 foot Haulmark. Pay close attention to the door on the back. It should feel pretty heavy and need spring assist to shut. If it doesn't feel heavy of have assist you will most likely have issues with it. They bend. Also with the door on the back opened, push on the walls in the back of the trailer and see if there is a lot of movement. If it racks a lot, walk away. One of the trickiest things is to make that area strong with bracing. It will most likely have some movement no matter what but it shouldn't have a lot. Take a close look at the tries and wheels. You want at least 6 lug wheels on a 2 axle trailer. You also want decent 10 ply tires. If not, neither will last....

    We have to sell it to make room. We are signing papers on a 2012 BMW X5 diesel tomorrow. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    For Sale 1999.5 VW Jetta TDI

    It time for my Jetta to move on. 1999.5 VW Jetta TDI ALH Diesel. 282,000 miles on it but it has been very well maintained. Malone Stage 1.5 tune with spec 215 injector nozzles, custom cold air intake and Southbend Endurance clutch. New timing belt and water pump at 260,000 miles. Tires on it now are brand new. I also have a second set of wheels but the tires are shot on those wheels. 20 inch LED light bar mounted in the front and is activated by the high beam switch when the fog light switch is on. New polyurethane front control arm bushings and new Bilstein shocks and struts all the way around. Edit : I forgot to mention that it has a Bluetooth Sanyo Stereo with sub box in the trunk, it also has heated seats in the front and leather front and rear. It also has an aluminum skid plate under the engine from JSP in Canada. I bought the car with 160,000 miles and it has had the oil changed every 10,000 miles since with Amsoil VW spec oil. This is is by far, the best car I have ever owned and has been very well maintained. We are wanting $4,000.00 firm.

    Welding and the baffle are complete! Here is a picture with the baffle open. Here it is closed. I reached my goal of 3 gallons. That is 3 gallons of water sitting the pan now. Appears the be an inch or more of free board so it will probably hold more. Just need some blasting and paint then it will be done. I have to get a new converter with a higher stall before I install this. 1500 rpms doesn’t cut it with the compounds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New truck!

    No KDP to worry about. Take a good look at the driveshaft U-joints while you are at it. Change the fuel fuel filter at least every other oil change. Should be good then. Congrats on the new (to you) truck!

    I still have to fab up the baffle and do some sandblasting. Also I recovered the factory drain plug so it will have the magnet in it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Rear diff covers put to the test!

    But the intakes he was working with Are designed specifically for a turbocharged engine. This means that the engine displacement and RPM are one factor in the CFM flow through the intake in question, but not nearly where the equation would end. The turbocharger makes the CFM calculation based on displacement and RPM, much, much more complicated.

    At 14.7 psi manifold absolute pressure and 60*F?
