    But the roller cam makes all the difference. Before, these things were as slow as Christmas. With the roller cam, these things are absolute bullets.

    That's good advice, and smart too! I would have to believe that dealerships would be more desperate for fuel efficient cars too, versus gas hogs. A Mirage will move quicker than the equivalent gas...

    Dirk - I don't blame you for going that route. Your wife DOES make a good point. If a person, any person, is going to hold on to a car for a long term, the initial outlay begins to be justified.

    Whatever is most simple will usually last the longest. Except maybe the ole Wankel engines. They are quite simple. Maybe if Toyota developed the hell out of them, they'd last. But they're not...

    Wow, I was in Orlando on the 17th, 18th and 19th. Small world. I was in an ugly red Elantra.
  7. A little under or over should not be an issue. ...

    A little under or over should not be an issue. The only way an over amount can affect it is by over pressuring the high-side. But there's a sensor to shut it off if there is too much pressure on...

    I don't know if I would ever consider 84.4F acceptable. My Lexus can / will destroy that. That sucker performs. Anywho - apples / oranges.

    These latest threads remind me of something. A few...

    Top Fuel - Over the past 10 days or so, it has gotten stifling hot down here in the dirty dirty Thunderdome. Very humid. Agreeing with everything you said. But down here, at idle it's probably...

    Lack of specified quantity of refrigerant. Refrigerant pressures are ... beside the point. I guess a "weak" compressor could also cause this. But it is like 10 time less likely to be a worn out...

    I don't see how you keep your cars stored away and not driven. I can't help myself, I want to drive all my cars. I am putting very little time in my Dodge Cummins now due to $6 a gallon diesel fuel.

    Cool mods, your silver car looks mighty good. I just don't see how you guys have enough time to do all this stuff. I have 3 sons that need spanking all day long. OK, I jest, they're older boys...

    There are plenty of other vehicles that threaten EVs more than a Mirage. So my doubts are on that gobment theory, but I'm guessing you said that half joking.

    Where are the 2022 Mirages? That is...

    You'd be correct. What you're being told is BS, and you are also correct, they can't figure it out. I doubt it is related to the electrical work, but I could be wrong on that.

    My guess is that...

    gokartkid - If you had the buttons added and the system activated, first of all, probably most dealers would never know it didn't come that way. And second of all, the only warranty that would be...

    I actually think he should stay on the forum, buy a Spark and let us know how it goes. And I hope it would go well. I like the Spark. I think it is pretty sharp. But from all indications it is...

    Well, I hope you're right. I have to believe that if at one time you reduce the CR by removing material. And the more air is able to fill the cylinder, then the AFR is going to be thrown off ......

    I have no experience with Carmax. If you're going to let them look at it, try first thing in the morning. It should be less noticeable then.

    Dremelling the head to lower the CR, sounds like a very GM way of band-aiding an issue. If you're good with those kind of gimmicks and games and feel ok to have your car sit at a shop in many...

    I just did a trip down to Orlando (drove down Friday, drove back Sunday). A coworker and I took a rental car. A Hyundai Elantra. Besides the fact it was an auto, and CVT that "shifts" (as if I'm...
