    Different engines

    I’m just interested to know what (if any) different engines people have put in their cars. I guesss the Ford family must be in the vast majority of cars, but has anyone gone for a completely unusual choice? BMW, LEXUS etc? Just interested. Simon

    A visit with legends

    My wife had a conference to attend in Chicago so we decided to pack up the kids and make a little detour to Dearborn. If you have never experienced the Henry Ford Museum it is well worth a visit.

    ECU Recommendations

    Hello folks, What in opinion is the best ecu for the LS series engines that will also maybe run the SBF engines as well? Is it better to take the car and have someone install the ecu for a cleaner look or it one of those installs with a little patience can be accomplished without many issues...

    How to build a Superlite that's actually super-light

    OK, sure, 2500 pounds is pretty light for a production street car, but it's pretty heavy for a race car. I'm wondering how light one could build an SL-C? Horse-power can't make up for weight. I think Colin Chapman had the right idea back in the 60's with the Lotus 23--1,000 pounds and 150...
