I tried using a lighter to see if it would blow out from revs, but that isn't a perfect system. I don't want to run seafoam through it. I'm going to take it down with a buddy who has a MIG soon and...

I have headers so no cats are around. It actually SOUNDS like an exhaust leak, I took the exhaust off of the car and had all places where I was unsure of a hole or not touched up, so I doubt it is a...

May I add quickly that it is most definitely not an exhaust hanger or heat shield... So there is no need to suggest checking those. I have tracked the rattle down to the new welds but cannot find a...

INTERNAL exhaust rattle; wrap?

Hello,

Without boring you with the details I am fairly convinced that I have a rattle coming from a piece of welding slag inside of my exhaust. A weld had been done months prior and a rattle...

I found the issue! I had to have someone drive the car while I sat in the rear with one seat folded down so I could reach into the trunk. Good thing I have an E30 driving bud that can drive stick!...

How much preload prevents popping?

Hello,

I have linear 10kg/mm rear springs and they are barely loose at full droop, to the point I can only rock them back and force with some force. I have a popping from the rear that developed...
