    Does anyone else here skip 2nd gear on a regular basis? I started to recently because I got kind of annoyed with shifting into 2nd to be honest. Here's how I see and please someone correct me if I'm wrong:
    How I used to drive:
    1st: shift at 2800 going ~20
    2nd: shift 2800 going ~40
    3rd engages at 1900 rpm.

    How I drive now:
    1st: 3500-3700 rpm going ~30-35
    3rd engages at 1700-1900

    Anything wrong with this? I've just found that 2nd is kind of pointless and is just an extra shift. The car doesn't bog when I shift into even the lower part of the rpm range into 3rd (lowest I go to ever is 1600 or so) and it just removes the extra clutch and shift going a speed and gear that I won't be maintaining.

    PS: this only applies to driving on the street!! obviously if I'm driving through a gas station I won't go 1st-3rd but if I know I need to reach 60KM/hr going from light to light I just go 1st-3rd.

    Fobio's social commentary on Ferraris, transformers and BOVs....

    A Ferrari is a storied car brand...putting a Prancing Horse on your car is akin to Civic's with TRD stickers and Carolla with Mugen stickers.

    There's also a difference between questions ppl ask...

    "Hey guys, I'm considering a BOV. I've read on TM3 and the internat that our cars run BPV...can someone explain to me why? I understand that it may have to do with our intake system measuring recirculated air? Please educate me..."

    VS.

    "Hey guys...my ricer buddy and I were high one day and we saw this wicked Silvia going pssh pssh. It's such a wicked sound, but I have no idea what it is, but I want a VTA BOV!!!...and I'm not going to search or read up about it...so I'm just going to dump a question on here so I can be spoon fed."

    What the difference?

    #1 is a thought out question asked in a respectful manner that otehrs from the internet may also share the curiosity.

    #2 reeks of laziness and generally reflect badly on AN ESTABLISHED COMMUNITY like TM3, where the majority of our members have been around for awhile. This type of questions, like silly-cone exhausts, dumb down the average quality of threads and reflect poorly on an established, respected and knowledgeable forum.

    Most importantly...we have this random thread for ppl to post their random questions.

    1- University of Toronto in Mississauga - BSc in Forensic Science (No Co-Op)
    2- McMaster University - BA in Economics (No Co-Op)
    3- Guelph-Humber University - BAS in Justice Studies & Diploma in Police Foundations (Community Service Placements)
    4- University of Waterloo - Geography and Environmental Management (Co-Op)

    In my case, I will be commuting to whichever one I choose to attend.

Its going to have them make it in carbon fiber for me then i will be ripping the roof out and at the same time i will be doing the head liner do to i cant stand the color any more so it will be going suede black and all the plastic is the car will be going from egg shell white to black.

    the proposition....turbo delete mod. Thought of in 2009

    I have the solution...and this will only cost you $2500CDN...











    As you can see with the before and after dyno sheets, there's very little power loss...and in fact you can argue you GAIN in fuel economy...WIN-WIN-FTMFW...





    This mod/fix/upgrade/holy grail will be licensed thru Nator Performance...look out for big things coming.


    the bait was taken....but there was a moral. Story time with Fobio


    1. don't believe everything you read on the net.
    2. even if it looks good and others are raving about it, judge for yourself to see if it fits your own plans.
    3. have a sense of humour.

    Hi all,

    So I'm a brand new mazdaspeed3 owner (don't know why they call it a speed3 if it's just a slight trim difference from the regular 3). Anyway, I got the hatch version of it because that's all I was able to find when searching. Though I feel that the 12.5k that I paid for it seems expensive for a mazda hatch.
    That's neither here nor there though, as I am looking for something specific but have no idea what kind to get?

    I was looking to pick up some Hellaflush. I was driving by my local Walmart at like 11pm the other night, and out infront of the parking lot was a bunch of cars (mostly VW and Honda). So I pulled up into the group with them and asked what's going on. They seemed either irritated or were busy with something else as they wanted me to leave. As I was turning around to leave, I heard one shout and it sounded like he said I needed to get something called hellaflush.

    So I've been doing my research (I'm pretty good with computers and after researching, I practically become an expert!) and I feel pretty knowledgable about hellaflush. I think it's just as important as an oil change since (from my research) a hellaflush seems to flush a hella lot of stuff out of your car! (Including mufflers and front lips sometimes.... not really sure how that works, but that's what my research told me???)
    But what I DON'T understand is what kind to get.
    So for those of you who don't know, let me educate you. Just as oil has different weights: 10w-30, 5w-40...etc (The higher, the better), hellaflush has different styles. These cool Walmart VW and Honda bros seem to recommend the "slammed" style. But there is also "dope-camber", "squatting dog", and "speedbump dodge" styles. Though I think that last style was only for the Dodge Neon's that I saw there.

    Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Where can I get some of this Hellaflush? Apparently after you have Hellaflush, you have to run higher tire pressures (Obviously because Hellaflush is more dense, and therefore heavier).

    Also, if anyone isn't knowledgeable or wants to know more about Hellaflush, just let me know! I'd be more than happy to share my expertise.
    Hella, if a mod wants to sticky a thread, I'll write up a whole knowledge post and even a How-To!

    P.S. I was thinking about just copying and pasting this into "Honda" forums and "V-Dub" forums, but I'm worried that might also annoy them, but I might just try anyway. What do you think?

    To make methanol, you need first to create synthesis gas, which has carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas as its main components.

    Conventional steam reforming is the simplest and most widely practiced route to synthesis gas production:

    2 CH4 + 3 H2O -> CO + CO2 + 7 H2 (Synthesis Gas)

    CO + CO2 + 7 H2 -> 2 CH3OH + 2 H2 + H2O

    This process results in a considerable hydrogen surplus, as can be seen.

    If an external source of CO2 is available, the excess hydrogen can be consumed and converted to additional methanol. The most favorable gasification processes are those in which the surplus hydrogen is “burnt” to water, during which steam reforming is accomplished through the following partial oxidation reaction:

    CH4 + ½O2 -> CO + 2 H2 -> CH3OH

    CH4 + O2 -> CO2 + 2 H2
    The carbon dioxide and hydrogen produced in the last equation would then react with an additional hydrogen from the top set of reactions to produce additional methanol. This gives the highest efficiency, but may be at additional capital cost.
    If the answer is no,don't attempt to make methanol at home. The result will be more harmful to your wallet and health than blowing up your engine. I'm a chemical engineer and I wouldn't do it.

    flame on....

The BNR would also save me from getting a new intake and Brian has revamped the BNR to have a bigger WG for better boost control.

    The engine ain't broke yet but I like having a game plan. We'll see how far the game plan actually goes though... considering I could sell my car and just get a AWD/RWD platform to have more fun (traction) with.

    I may go BT before forged judged by what you guys are saying.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    TOTAL PARTS AND MACHINE SHOP LABOUR
    WITH head work $8800
    NO Head work $7500


    removing the clutch saves you $1000.

    Then there's labour cost if you plan to have shop pull and install the motor so budget $10,000


    Edge has put together these parts that you would need in an engine rebuild (almost all of the stuff i listed above):
    http://www.edgeautosport.com/stage-3...ms6-2006-2013/ $1215.92 up to $1700


    Cheapest thing to do is to replace the rods and pistons and open the piston ring gap... approx. $1000 + the motor build kit $1700 + labour

    so anywhere from $3000 (DIY) or ~$4000 (shop assemble motor) + removal and installation of motor (either DIY or shop)

    again, budget $10,000 for rainy day fund because shit will go wrong

    bottom line, shit ain't cheap

    We'll see about doing this come September because I get my truck and car payments are done. If $10000 is gonna be my worst case scenario I can swing that for a project car, but I might change my mind on the platform if that's the case lol. Maybe go with something lighter and rwd (Miata).

    I know it's a long shot but you never know... I found a block to tear down, bore out/hone and rebuild I am thinking I will gather parts over the summer/winter (I will purchase most of the rebuild parts on black friday @ edgeautosports) of this year to have it ready for next summer.
