    I did dick. I have a long list on my profile but with my buggered health over the last 4 years everything has gone to crap.

    I'm driving my '14 illegally, it hasn't been transferred into my name...

    I'm not up on all cars, so the Yaris and Mazda 2 are also gone? How about the Fit, though Hondas have grown like crazy the last few years. Second, I'm astonished that we still have, by and large,...

    I suspect the engine can withstand a lot of boost without detonating.

    My guess, based on 40+ years of wrenching street/track cars is that the stock engine can easily crank out 250-300 turbo hp.

    Ditto. To both why and the use of a BFH. And remember, you can always get a bigger BFH if your current one doesn't cut it. I doubt a 16 oz. hammer will cut it. Use at least a 2 lb. sledge. Minimum.

    When you bought nuts you made sure they at least had a Mitsu like diamond stamp on the head (grade 5) ? You don't want stove grade bolts holding your shocks on.

    My 2014 was an insanely loaded car for $9,995. I think I joined here a month or so after I bought it.

    As a guy who rented the Micra, Versa, Mirage and Spark within the same month the Mirage impressed me the most. I'm not a leadfoot but when I stomped the Mirage it hit 85 mph fast enough for me. It...

    There's enough room in the engine bay of a slant six to set a tent up and camp out. Just make sure your glove box is full of spare ballast resistors.

    My 2014 has a heavier clutch than my 2017, about 10 lbs. more I guess. As long as I can still shift it I don't care.

    I'm surprised the Outlander mileage is so poor. My Saturn Vue gets ~35mpg with...

    That's a really nice car and a fair price. If you could get it for less even better. I'd be all over that deal.

    I'm sure my CBR 125 was a 6 speed (2012 model) It ran about 8500-9000 rpm @70mph. It had a tach/speedo/gas/water temp gauge. I forget if it had a gear indicator. I think it did. You could skip gears...

    I'm the same size as you and I road a Honda CBR 125 for several years, from 2013-2016. I rode on our highways and had no trouble keeping up with traffic @120kmh (75~ mph). You need to draft now and...

    I just passed up a clean, rust free 64 convertible Falcon, ready to go, $5,500. It only lasted a day in the guys driveway.

    The first car I ever drove on public roadways was a Honda 600, 2 cyl, 4 stroke air cooled with the shifter coming out of the dash. Technically we stole it as we were 14 at the time and I doubt my...

    Methinks I'll beg my friend to use his hoist and do my own oil spraying late summer. My local Krown dealers are a joke, so stingy with the fluid. They didn't even do the underside of the hood.

    Tinted my Mirages all around to the legal limit where I live. Not only does my AC appear to work less, or better, but driving in odd seasons where the sun blinds you because the existing sunvisors...

    I see Micras all OVER the Niagara region. Where I live a scenic route to the falls has Micras in 4 or 5 driveways. It's not unusual at a light here to see two Micras. One day on Lundys Lanes there...

    Likely the best advice you're going to get here. Sorry to hear of your woes. Worst case, a used engine (I paid $400 for one with 13,000 miles) and the labor cost to install it. Could be next to...

    On a recent outing I saw far more Teslas and an equal number of Nissan Micras than all models of Mitsubishi combined. It was total weirdness, had I not been paying attention the the tags I'd have...

    The first time pump prices passed $1.50/liter, in the run-up to the 2008 crash, I sat in a gas station lot and watched how much gas people were buying. There were as many people pumping $2, YES $2...

    I'm an idiot for keeping my 5 spd. Vue. insured and plated. It might see 5 trips a year. I'd be way better off selling it and renting a pickup with a hitch when something large needs moving.
