Much of my clothing collection from high school remains in use, as it still functions as clothing, so why would I discard it? I don’t drink soda; it tastes amazing, but it also destroys your teeth. Much like Spock, I generally base my decisions on logic, often without putting much emphasis on feelings, for better or worse.</span><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-6bUlKlsjNsg/WHLwbjXgI0I/AAAAAAAAAX0/b4B4B9H64Zc7oSzAKDiw00Vyen6kOhPxgCLcB/s1600/IMG_2594.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-6bUlKlsjNsg/WHLwbjXgI0I/AAAAAAAAAX0/b4B4B9H64Zc7oSzAKDiw00Vyen6kOhPxgCLcB/s400/IMG_2594.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">To this extent, my Subaru Crosstrek did not have a name until recently. I often don’t feel the bond that so many others claim to have with their machines, but rather an admiration for what the machine is capable of, and how the machine is capable of achieving desired results. Before buying my car, like any classic soulless engineer I drew up a Pugh Matrix to determine which vehicle best suited my needs. Of the six options, the Crosstrek offered the most ground clearance, longest driven range, most front legroom, lowest depreciation, best estimated reliability, and all with a manual transmission and the second best cargo space of the group. To be fair, I also do like the shade of blue it comes in. I’m not </span><i style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;Helvetica Neue&quot;, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">that</i><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"> soulless.</span><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The Subaru was a numbers based decision, as numbers have always been the only thing I’ve been good at. My reading is poor, and at this point you’ve likely noticed the same of my writing. The Crosstrek isn’t the most exciting car out of the six vehicles I test drove, but like the math portion of my SAT scores, it did win the numbers. Need to make it long distances with lots of cargo? Need to get off the beaten path and up a sketchy backroad to a trailhead? Trying to hit the ski slopes up an icy mountain traverse? Perhaps I do have a strong bond with my car, as it handles everything I throw at it. So now it needs a name…&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1YE3GcV-si8/WHLwiBkotjI/AAAAAAAAAYQ/04WQIa7zLzETuEA6jT4LB6DAlc5RkhFewCEw/s1600/IMG_3787%2B3.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1YE3GcV-si8/WHLwiBkotjI/AAAAAAAAAYQ/04WQIa7zLzETuEA6jT4LB6DAlc5RkhFewCEw/s400/IMG_3787%2B3.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">According to an eBay Motors survey, nearly 40% of American millennials name their cars. Naming things isn’t a strong suit of mine (my cat’s name is Bucket), so this time I left it to chance with the Mobil 1? "<a href="https://apfco.net/secure/P3729W/" target="_blank">Name-u-lator</a>." Simply put, the Name-u-lator will provide you a name for your car, and you can get a free personalized license plate frame (picture below) simply by purchasing 5 quarts of Mobil 1 oil at your local AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, or Pep Boys. After answering a short list of questions, the Name-u-lator had pegged my car’s name: </span><i style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;Helvetica Neue&quot;, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Dr. Higgs.</i><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"> Higgs?

The theory starts with the idea that</span><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp; </span><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">our universe is filled with Higgs particles. These particles are everywhere: they surround us and are inside of us. Brian Cox, physicist and apparently my celebrity look alike based on YouTube comments, puts it best: “the things that make up you and me, and our bodies, and everything we can see, are bumping into [Higgs particles], and in that process they acquire mass, which means they’re solid, which ultimately means that we exist.” Our planet earth, the sun, the stars, the screen you’re reading this on, the eyes you’re scanning with, and yes, even the matter that makes up my car - all of these things exist because of their interactions with Higgs particles throughout the universe.</span><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">For some folks, cars are merely a device used to transport their mass from one location to another. For others, there’s a passion derived from the bond between man and machine - a bond that’s not so easy to see or define, much like the Higgs Boson. How appropriate then, that the Crosstrek be randomly named this? Dr. Higgs: the logical, data driven vehicle that accepts challenges ahead with an analytical approach void of emotion. May we both live long and prosper.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yCX339s3abc/WHLwhF-ZB1I/AAAAAAAAAYQ/37H6vnTQ1gQkQrYvkB4fzgMlChqJIZRJwCEw/s1600/IMG_2785.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yCX339s3abc/WHLwhF-ZB1I/AAAAAAAAAYQ/37H6vnTQ1gQkQrYvkB4fzgMlChqJIZRJwCEw/s400/IMG_2785.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="-webkit-text-stroke: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">I’ll admit, I didn’t know what to expect when testing out the Name-u-lator.

I talk with Michelin at the Shell Eco-marathon Americas to find out! When it comes to designing for efficiency, there are five major forces which a vehicle needs to overcome: aerodynamics, internal friction, gravity, &nbsp;inertia, and finally, rolling resistance.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Rolling resistance is the energy consumed by a tire as it travels over a specific distance. Energy is lost as heat when the tire deforms on the road, creating the contact patch, and then returns to its original state as the tire continues to rotate. How much energy is lost is a result of the tire’s hysteresis. ?The goal is to reduce rolling resistance while still maintaining grip.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Silica compounds, first invented by Michelin, have low energy losses in the low frequency range, meaning low rolling resistance, but high energy losses in the high frequency range, meaning they have high grip. As a result, it truly is possible to have tires which exhibit low rolling resistance and yet all the while high levels of grip. Michelin is one of many partners that plays an important role in the Shell Eco-marathon, dedicating a manufacturing plant for two days per year just for making the ultra-low rolling resistance tires used by the teams.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

Test Drive. The 2016 Subaru WRX STI Hyperblue is a limited edition with a 2.5L boxer engine producing 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. This is sent through a 6-speed manual transmission to a driver controlled center differential, DCCD. The STI features three limited slip differentials, with a front helical LSD and a rear Torsen LSD. Major changes for the 2016 model year versus the previous generation include a more rigid chassis, stiffer suspension, torque vectoring, different seats, a nicer infotainment system, more rear leg room, a flat bottomed steering wheel, and a tighter steering ratio.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Related Videos:</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2015 Subaru WRX STI - <a href="https://youtu.be/Ye_ALPQqYLg">https://youtu.be/Ye_ALPQqYLg</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">WRX vs STI - <a href="https://youtu.be/7Dg3BeWFyys">https://youtu.be/7Dg3BeWFyys</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2014 Subaru STI - <a href="https://youtu.be/X2uUW3r8YHM">https://youtu.be/X2uUW3r8YHM</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2015 Subaru WRX - <a href="https://youtu.be/dVruWDgtTPg">https://youtu.be/dVruWDgtTPg</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">STI vs EVO - <a href="https://youtu.be/nSWeYLzUq0I">https://youtu.be/nSWeYLzUq0I</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">STI vs AMG - <a href="https://youtu.be/rch90QPejPI">https://youtu.be/rch90QPejPI</a></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><span style="background-color: white; font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #333333; font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;"></span></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" width="200" /></a>&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">YouTube</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Facebook</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/jasonfenske13" target="_blank">Twitter</a>&nbsp;- <a href="http://www.patreon.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Patreon</a></span></div>EngineeringExplainedhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08933883648315214107noreply@blogger.com85tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1696059147775497943.post-84845473043441137822015-11-21T18:57:00.000-08:002015-11-21T18:57:29.170-08:002016 Mazda Mazda6 Grand Touring - Review & Test Drive<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white; font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><iframe allowfullscreen='allowfullscreen' webkitallowfullscreen='webkitallowfullscreen' mozallowfullscreen='mozallowfullscreen' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/S7HSckw2-yg?feature=player_embedded' frameborder='0' /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2016 Mazda Mazda6 I Grand Touring Review. The 2016 Mazda Mazda 6 is a mid-size sedan capable of 40 mpg on the highway. The Mazda6 is powered by a SkyActiv gasoline 2.5L engine producing 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque, routed through a 6 speed automatic transmission to the front tires. Features include 19 inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated side mirrors, heated front seats, rear lip spoiler, 8-way power drivers seat, leather-trimmed sport seats, bluetooth, paddle shifters, rearview camera, advanced keyless entry, 60/40 split folding rear seats, Bose 11 speaker sound system, heads up display, LED daytime running, fog, and taillights, power moonroof, Mazda Radar cruise control, I-ELOOP, lane departure warning, and active grill shutters.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">The Mazda6 has many superlatives as far as how efficient this vehicle is in comparison to all of the other vehicles which I’ve tested. First off, it has the highest highway fuel economy rating of any of the purely gasoline vehicles which I’ve tried out, at 40 miles per gallon. This also gives it the second highest range of any vehicle I’ve tested, at over 650 miles assuming 40 miles per gallon. At an estimated $1,400 per year, it has the lowest annual fuel cost of any non-hybrid vehicle I’ve tested. It’s the most aerodynamic vehicle I’ve tested to date, tying with the GT-R’s 0.26 drag coefficient, however having a smaller frontal area. This is also accomplished with better than average ground clearance for a sedan, at 6.7 inches. The Mazda6, along with the MX-5, has the highest compression ratio of any gasoline engine I’ve tested at 13:1, however unlike the Miata the 6 only recommends regular octane fuel. Finally, the Mazda has the best smog rating of any vehicle I’ve tested, scoring a 9 out of 10, meaning very low nitrogen oxide or hydrocarbon emissions.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>MSRP As Tested: </b>$33,695</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Related Videos:</b></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2016 Mazda Miata MX-5 - <a href="https://youtu.be/Wh-BldfPuXo">https://youtu.be/Wh-BldfPuXo</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2016 Mazda MX-5 Engineering - <a href="https://youtu.be/W9SIzxuYJWI">https://youtu.be/W9SIzxuYJWI</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2016 Mazda CX-5 - <a href="https://youtu.be/jbZham9jtYc">https://youtu.be/jbZham9jtYc</a></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><span style="background-color: white; font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #333333; font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;"></span></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" width="200" /></a>&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">YouTube</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Facebook</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/jasonfenske13" target="_blank">Twitter</a>&nbsp;- <a href="http://www.patreon.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Patreon</a></span></div>EngineeringExplainedhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08933883648315214107noreply@blogger.com51tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1696059147775497943.post-9111540815388513262015-11-17T21:05:00.004-08:002015-11-17T21:05:54.487-08:00Mitsubishi Evolution X - AWD System (S-AWC, ACD, AYC)<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white; font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><iframe allowfullscreen='allowfullscreen' webkitallowfullscreen='webkitallowfullscreen' mozallowfullscreen='mozallowfullscreen' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/h2Ojw8lCZX4?feature=player_embedded' frameborder='0' /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="color: #333333; font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;">How does the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo's S-AWC system work?

The best review of a minivan. The Kia Sedona packs 7 or 8 people, features a V6 engine with 6 speed transmission, and has plenty of torque for hauling all of your stuff. Features are endless: heated and vented front seats, heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, 360 degree camera system, keyless push button start, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, automatic power windows all around, power lift gate, tri-zone climate control, front and rear parking assist, chrome wheels, nappa leather seat trim, driver seat position memory, yes it’s got it all. ?</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">But what else can the Kia offer? How about reclining rear seats? The only other vehicle I’ve had this nice of a seating position in the rear seats is a $200,000 Maybach S600. Dual sunroofs. Well what if you’d like to chauffeur and want the ability to open and close the doors for the rear passengers? Yep, you can do that. It also features a completely hands free power liftgate. You simply stand next to the back with the key in your pocket, and it opens up for you, no fumbling required. When you put the car in reverse, on top of the ridiculous number of cameras and available views, the side mirrors automatically tilt downward to help with backing up or parallel parking.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">While I'm not saying the Kia Sedona is the best minivan out there, it certainly does have an abundance of features and offer a nice, compliant ride. I set out with the goal of creating the most interesting minivan review ever. Undoubtably not that challenging, since competition is rather... mundane.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Related Videos:</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2015 Kia Forte Koup - <a href="https://youtu.be/ZmyYbscUx1s">https://youtu.be/ZmyYbscUx1s</a></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><span style="background-color: white; font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #333333; font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;"></span></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" width="200" /></a>&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">YouTube</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Facebook</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/jasonfenske13" target="_blank">Twitter</a>&nbsp;- <a href="http://www.patreon.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Patreon</a></span></div>EngineeringExplainedhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08933883648315214107noreply@blogger.com8tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1696059147775497943.post-88798354558112810462015-11-05T01:59:00.001-08:002015-11-05T01:59:31.556-08:00Best In Show SEMA 2015 - Sung Kang's FuguZ - GReddy 240Z<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white; font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><iframe allowfullscreen='allowfullscreen' webkitallowfullscreen='webkitallowfullscreen' mozallowfullscreen='mozallowfullscreen' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/gYE3IuHUBaA?feature=player_embedded' frameborder='0' /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="color: #333333; font-family: helvetica neue, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;">Sung Kang's FuguZ, Gran Turismo's 2015 SEMA Best In Show.

What's the difference between equal length headers and unequal length headers? What are the advantages of equal length headers? The reason the WRX STI sounds so unique is due to the unequal length headers. The exhaust pulses do not line up evenly before entering a single exhaust pipe to exit to the rear. The uneven exhaust pulses result in a fluttering sound rather than a smooth even exhaust note which is characteristic of equal length exhaust headers.

Water methanol injection is used typically on high powered vehicles to assist with reducing the likelihood of knock, and thus allowing for higher compression ratios, more timing advance, and higher boost. Typically mixes are 50/50, with both water and methanol playing important but different roles to help aid in producing more power. Ultimately, the power comes from tuning as running water/meth essentially raises the octane level of the fuel used. There are production cars which have used this in the past.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Related Videos:</b></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Knock - <a href="https://youtu.be/maZyPJIOknE">https://youtu.be/maZyPJIOknE</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Octane Ratings - <a href="https://youtu.be/cfhTTuxF6Mk">https://youtu.be/cfhTTuxF6Mk</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Ignition Timing - <a href="https://youtu.be/R1tPT7anjwk">https://youtu.be/R1tPT7anjwk</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Turbocharging - <a href="https://youtu.be/zenMEj0cAC4">https://youtu.be/zenMEj0cAC4</a></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aoKii_dfU6Y/VG9tguHAT3I/AAAAAAAAAJw/aJV57LJ3Bsg/s1600/922734_546546028721456_933898062_n.jpg" width="200" /></a>&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">YouTube</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/EngineeringExplained" target="_blank">Facebook</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/jasonfenske13" target="_blank">Twitter</a>&nbsp;-&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.patreon.com/EngineeringExplained" style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;" target="_blank">Patreon</a></div>EngineeringExplainedhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08933883648315214107noreply@blogger.com9tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1696059147775497943.post-78262547249700669682015-10-11T12:57:00.000-07:002015-10-11T12:57:59.100-07:0015 Things You Should Always Keep In Your Car<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="background-color: white; font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><iframe allowfullscreen='allowfullscreen' webkitallowfullscreen='webkitallowfullscreen' mozallowfullscreen='mozallowfullscreen' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/0PUirmfOs9c?feature=player_embedded' frameborder='0' /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">You should always keep these items in your car.

Though the real winner is likely the 2016 Ford Focus RS, the battle between the EVO and STI was seemingly going to be a never ending debate. That is until Mitsubishi announced 2015 is the final model year for the Lancer Evolution.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Both of these cars feature turbocharged four cylinder engines producing around 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. They both have sophisticated AWD systems with active center differentials and helical limited slip differentials for the front axle. The Mitsubishi features a torque vectoring rear differntial, while the Subaru employs a Torsen style limited slip diff. Both have immense traction in nearly any condition with the right tires.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica Neue, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The STI’s many small victories make it the champion. Less weight with more power, a more adaptable driving position, sharp short-ratio steering, a much nicer interior and infotainment system, more cargo space, a longer range on each tank of gas, and a wonderful 6 speed manual transmission. But if we’re being honest, there are no winners here. With the death of the EVO, Subaru was able to be more conservative on the design of the new STI, with power levels relatively unchanged since 2004.
