  • Can you move the sidescoops of the Pontiac Fiero beneath the car?

    Several reasons to ask this. On the sides of the car it is effectively forced air induction, but I believe it would have more airflow beneath the car because of down-force pressure between the ground and the car. Also at higher speeds wouldn't a (pair of) scoop(s) create down-force thus increasing road grip? Furthermore could this be used as a solution for v-8 overheating? Make a full width scoop to send cool air upwards into the engine bay? I am not talking about a giant scoop that would scrape the ground but a wide thin one (or two). The only issue I could foresee would be road debris and water.

    However if you had a V8 or 3800SC built just for track use it shouldn't be an issue.

  • Name of suspense/horror movie where horse gets cut into sectionals in a dream world?

    I can barely remember, the movie was insane. They were in the mind of some criminal. I only really remember the part where a horse is standing still, than thin panes of glass slam down over its body. It than separates into sectionals.

  • Can you easily replace the headlights of a Jeep TJ with those of the YJ?

    I like the newer Wrangler TJ, but I would love to have the rectangular headlights of the YJ. Would it be relatively easy to swap them and the grill?

  • How difficult would it be to put a 351 V8 into a 4th generation Mustang?

    A Ford 351 Cleveland motor into the newer fourth generation Ford Mustang. I had a 2001 Ford Mustang Premium with the 3.8L V6 auto. I wanted to get a manual GT but don't like the new modular engines. What all would need to be replaced and custom fabricated to put it in?

  • How difficult is it to replace the Clutch Slave Cylinder on an '86 Fiero 4cylinder?

    I see one for sale for $600, it's in near mint condition, and it only needs a clutch slave cylinder. I know it is just outside of the transmission bell housing, but does the engine need to be dropped or lifted to access it?

  • What DSLR lens do I need to buy?

    There are many many lenses available out there. I know about fixed focus lenses, telescopic lenses, and short range lenses. However I have been looking into specialty lenses and can't seem to figure out exactly what I am looking for. I have an interest in photographing things at a really close up point of view. Imagine a leaf on the ground with morning dew on it. I want to be able to take a photograph of a specific node of water with crystal clarity. I want a lens that can focus so perfectly you can see the cameras reflection in the droplet. Furthermore I have yet to purchase a DSLR camera because I cannot decide which is right for me. I know of the megapixel myth however I feel as though the higher the MP the larger the print could be made. I currently own a pocket worthy immortal Panasonic DMC-TS1 that I take with me everywhere, even in the ocean. I need a camera that can capture the image as I see it. It's time for an upgrade.

  • Can anyone identify this pistol for me? (picture) It's stainless steel, mother of pearl grips.?

    It was used by Lieutenant Colonel John Sheppard in the third last episode, Vegas, of Stargate Atlantis. The character was Detective John Shepard from an alternate universe. Of course that doesn't matter unless you follow the show, either way I love his pistol and haven't seen any like it aside for a few Rugers.

    Here is a picture.

  • How can I pull more Horsepower out of a Stock Honda D16Z6 block?

    Simple things to start up to big things for the finish. Spark plugs? Cold (hot) air intake? Exhaust System? Headers? Rods, pistons, cylinders? Turbo Kit? I know the basics, but I am not sure where to start. When I first got the car I drained and replaced all the fluids, put in copper spark plugs, a new air filter, and flushed the radiator. I know the car (1993 Honda Del Sol Si) can put out quite a bit more power even stock. What are some simple and inexpensive things I can do myself? I know it starts with replacing basic parts, than you need to work on the inside of the engine with the rods and pistons and such. What would you recommend for a cheap reliable build?

  • What are some older Two Seater cars?

    I am talking about cars that can be found for $2000 or less. I own a Del Sol so don't say you need back seats. I know of the Fiero, MR2, Miata, Rx7, 300ZX and that is about it. What other cars are out there that can be bought in running condition for around $2000?

  • How do you start a bike that's been sitting for 20 years?

    1980 Kawasaki Z250 with 249.1 miles. It was parked and never touched again. In immaculate condition and unsure if the fluids were drained. Gas tanks innards are rather rusty but everything else looks perfect. How would I go about attempting to start it?

  • What needs to be done to start a motorcycle after sitting for 20 years?

    It is a 1980 Kawasaki Z250 with 249.1 miles on it. Grandparent bought it than needed money so she sold it to my Great Aunt and it sat in her Barn ever since. It is in amazing condition no visible rust and clean. The gas tank has some inside surface rust, how would I get rid of that? Soak it with cleaning solution like CLR? I have no idea if they drained the fluids or not and they do not remember. If there was gas and oil left in it what would need to be done? Will the carb need rebuilt if the fluids were left in? Should I replace the spark plug just because? I know it will need a new battery... if it had one...

  • Where can I find fairly priced, large, (fake) Purple Christmas Trees?

    I figured if I didn't add the word fake, people would think I were crazy. My girlfriend has always wanted a purple Christmas tree, I learned that last Christmas while we were Christmas shopping and there was one on display. They were completely out of stock, save for the one on display and refused to sell it until after Christmas. However they of course sold it the day BEFORE Christmas :/. Nevertheless I have been looking for a tall 8'+ Purple Christmas tree and have not found one for less than $500. Does anyone know where I can find one cheaper? If not I will buy the one from Amazon :D. Happy Holidays! (I know it is early)

  • Do I need Auto Insurance on a car that is non running/street legal?

    A car with no motor, transmission, exhaust, headlights, taillights, and so on? I will call and ask my insurance person today, but I was wondering for your thoughts. I live near Cleveland Ohio. I plan to buy a newer Ford Mustang with no motor or transmission so I can put in an older Ford 350c.i. 5.7L V8 with the matching tranny and don't assume I would need to pay insurance on a project.

  • Why is the hole of the pull start handle smoking on my pocket rocket?

    I finally got the thing started after it sat for around two years. It stays running now that I adjusted the idler screw but there is smoke billowing out of the pull starter near the screws and the hole in which the string attached to the handle enters. What could possibly be calling this?

  • Would it be cheaper to build my own Go Kart?

    I see alot for sale fairly cheap in beat up condition, I see many a chassis for around $400-$600 with wheels and breaks and steering installed. However If I look hard enough around my garage and out at the farm and keep checking craigslist and freecycle I could get alot of the necessary parts cheap and put a used, or buy a new, motor for it.

    If I custom build I will make it chain driven, horizontal engined, and hopefully awd which seems impossible. I would mostly be riding around on the farm when the hay is cut. I have ATV's but I think a fast low cart would be more fun, especially on the gravel

  • How does Ohio lottery work? Pick 3 and Mega Millions?

    I just read about it on the website and am aware of all of the add ons. However while looking at the odds and payouts the numbers don't match up with the Total Payout. This evenings total payout for pick 3 is $285,765 but the odds and payout states if you match all three straight your winnings are $500 on a $1 wager. Which do you win?

    Another question, tickets are $0.50 a piece. You can pick numbers anywhere from 000-999. for $500 you could buy every single possible combination, is that correct? If the payout were $285,765 it would be worth it, if the payout were $500... well you get my point. If it were possible wouldn't everyone do it? I wouldn't mind spending the $500 and losing some to taxes winning it back just to say I won the lottery :P

  • Where can I find some unique performance Honda parts?

    Performance doesn't have to be extreme. I am actually trying to get the best gas mileage out of my car, I don't care how fast or slow it is. I want a car that looks nice, not like a racer or a ricer, and is extremely dependable. I drive a 1993 Honda Civic CRX Del Sol Si D16Z6 (Honda Del Sol). I am looking for a silent exhaust system, which I believe is impossible to find, that is stainless steel and has a lifetime warranty. I am also looking for engine dress and love the look of Neo Titanium.

    Here's what I call unique, all that I could find.

    Mugen Twin Loop is unique, but loud and farty

  • Is it only intelligent people that are completely ignored while speaking of a serious topic?

    I don't consider myself intelligent but I have been told continuously I am gifted, genius, and so on. I have a registered IQ of 164, I am in the top %90 of all subjects, %99 percent world-wide for mathematics. Nevertheless I still consider myself to be of normal intelligence.

    I attempt to engage in conversation that actually matters. I don't talk about sports, or news, or clothing, I talk about science, politics, religion. However majority of the people I attempt to talk to get angry, or don't understand, or refuse to view things from another perspective. Is this normal behavior?

  • Why does Sharp add a Yellow pixel to it's Quattron LCD TV?

    I lied, I am pretty sure I comprehend the concept behind the additional pixel. The way our brain and eyes perceive color is as mysterious as the reason we dream while sleeping. However it stands to be true that adding yellow caused the television to produce trillions of colors rather than hundreds of millions. It is also true that of all secondary colors, yellow is the most stressful for an Liquid Crystal Display Television to produce. Therefore the panel overdrives itself less often, and subsequently becomes more energy efficient. The addition of Light Emitting Diode (LED) back-lighting allows the picture to be far more clear and sharper, as well as lighter and darker in the appropriate areas. For the first time we may be able to have nearly a "True Black" while watching movies.

    As for the actual question...

    Would I be wrong to assume, given the Quattron proves to be very popular, the future may hold for an addition of two more pixels "Cyan and Magenta"? It only seems to make sense that if the addition of one pixel, yellow, produces millions more colors than the addition of the other two would prove the same. With the addition of LED Back-lighting and the soon-to-be-standard 3-D viewing capability the future for televisions seems almost magical. I have a feeling we will have a RGBCMY LED LCD Multi-touch Internet Ready 3-D TV with built-in 15MP Camera and microphone within the next 5 years! How exciting it seems that such technology exists and its affordability is upon our fingertips!
