My 2007 Saturn VUE has developed a small hole in the muffler and being a cheep ass, I don't want to spend the money on a new muffler.

So how about muffler tape?

That seems so easy to do, I doubt its effectiveness. If this is too complicated for you, then you should take it to an exhaust shop and ask them to fill the hole with weld.

post your sucess stories. I'll start.

Teardown of engine. didn't snap a single rusty ass exhaust manifold stud off in two.

Engine was fucked so had to get a new one.

Didn't snap a single stud on the second engine neither that was even more fucked in terms of rust.

And the engine was in pristine condition.
What was fucked on the first one?
And yeah those studs can be a bitch, I just kept going with a torch and penetrating fluid until I barely had to use any force. God help me the day I snap a stud
That paint job is lazy slop.

We ran out of masking tape from the first engine and nearest store was around 40km. Didn't dare do it any better in case it got inside the engine.

All pistons looked like this with deep marks in the cylinder walls. Head had the same type of damage on it.

And to make it even better, the engine was the wrong type. We were promised a b200 engine, but it was a b23 engine. Way older, and most importantly none of the parts fit.

New engine is a b230 with 400k km on it. Kid scrapped his car because engine kept overheating he said.

Said it had no compression no nothing.

He had set the timing wrong so the valves were open during the strokes so no compression.

He had also neglected to even look at the thermostat which was completely rusted out and filled with gunk. When we tore it down the cylinders, walls, head and all looked mint. Even the bearings were pristine.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Finally my wagie ass can afford a car. My dream car would be picrelated, but it's not a wise choice at all. Plan B is a phase 1 Twingo, but those in decent conditions go for €4~5000, which is insane, also it was the first car I drove a dozen years ago, so I know how much of a death trap it is. Help me with a plan C /o/.

Why not just a later year Twingo 16V? Less of a death trap and still widely available in good shape for 1-2k.

They sound great in the cab but the exhaust system really kills it from out the back. Too many bends and Toyota did a dickhead move by choking it with the crossover pipe against the firewall which is skinnier than the rest of the damn thing

Projecting. The thread is about why this kind of dumb build is seen less and less, I'm just giving an answer while you're crying your heart out defending old faggots you don't know.
>Just because YOU don't like it doesn't make it less legitimate as a motorsport.
My tastes don't count. Just like horse races were held to improve the breed, motorsports are a way to push engineering forward. A faggotmobile tuned to run for 10 seconds at a time is pathetic. Even if your aim was to clear the fastest quarter mile, anything from a special catapult to top fuel dragsters are the logical end of the quest. Taking a normal car to turn it into an horizontal sled will never amount to shit.
>Go out to the Bonneville salt flats and tell those guys they're stupid and their cars are stupid.
I understand the idea of terminal velocity testing. The japanese had their Yatabe track, Europe uses various german tracks (I think Nardo was one of them but not sure), etc. Max speed is a staple in engineering.
>You're not a true automotive enthusiast if you can so easily dismiss a specific category.
Lmao what next? Respect the stance faggots scraping their cars on the asphalt ? I don't give a fuck, and if you want a good one know that I've only started lurking this board when /asp/ got overrun by wrestling faggots.
>My tastes don't count
You proved all my points.
You're some sniveling millennial fresh out of diapers complaining about a type of build that YOU don't like and don't see a point to.
And yes, stance faggots are part of this culture. Their shit is pointless and ridiculous but is no different than any other build that's beyond a bone stock camry.
You don't NEED to take turns at 100mph.
You don't NEED enough ground clearance to cross a 3 foot deep creek.
You don't NEED enough torque to tow a mobuke home.
You don't NEED enough HP to melt the tires at a light.
This hobby has nothing to do with NEEDs.
This hobby is about building what I think is cool, not what YOU like.

swapping big supercharged V8s into tiny chassis is still a common part of strayan burnout culture (though less so than just running a commodore). dumb stuff like an ls swapped mightyboy or whatever

Before anyone dares making a retort about Nissan’s reliability, these cars are nigh-bulletproof when it’s not equipped with a CVT.
>So why does everyone like these now?
It's a cheap, practical car that you can be throw around corners in some configurations which isn't completely soul-sucking to drive like a 2000s-2010s Prius.
A BMW M2 is legitimately worse than a Honda Fit, though.

looks like a couple of chipped teeth
i just don't like the trip it gives
Should look closer at the previous posts dipshits. Congrats you can spot an open diff, yet manage to miss the blown up teeth, that's why it got fresh gears and a Truetrac dropped in.
And no goddamn ukuleles or globohomo pastels.
A clutch pack diff can be adjusted to suit any scenario you need and more importantly can be fully locked, sure. But you need to actually set the thing up properly, the clutches wear out, they're noisy, not the best for street use.
Geared LSDs are set-and-forget, just as well-mannered as an open diff for daily driving but a massive upgrade in traction. If you're doing an all-out track build go for a clutch pack diff, if you spend more time on the street just get a geared one.

This is one of the biggest copes ever.
Not with all your camping, fishing, or hunting gear though, or with passengers. An SxS/UTV is probably a better comparison against the Jeep but with one of those you've gotta deal with the pain in the ass of trailering it around, not to mention owning two expensive vehicles instead of just one.

i can always pay someone, with enough money
it's smaller than an inline six but wider.
If you have to ask, very hard.
Also, you can't afford neither the body nor the engine
I've got an s130 and it's got a pretty damn big engine bay, so I'd imagine it would fit without much problem. Everything else will be a lot of work.
LS unironically fits better
Ok then go ask them instead

Here they are, all of the 2024 manual cars available in the US.

though i think most spend more time posting about it on the internet than actually driving, probably because they cant afford to waste gasoline.
