    Good evening, I've been seeing ads for Dodge's new E-Torque system that claims to add up to 100 ft lbs of torque, so I've been wondering could someone duplicate this system with a Milwaukee impact driver that has 1,000 lbs to an engine and therefor receive a 1,000 lbs of torque? My idea is to...
  2. Introduce Yourself
    I'm a product of the 50's with an appreciation for new technology too. My first car was a 1967 Camaro that I spent every waking hour tweaking, much to the chagrin of my girlfriend at the time. Street racing and drag racing were the focus back then. Think I gave $1,200 for that car. After...

    I had the opportunity to get a 1985 t bird (turbo) for free. It has no engine or transmission. Stock engine I've found for 2 grand. However, I think it's redundant to put stock in it. I'm new to restoring/fixing cars so I need all the help I can get.

    I am new to this but I am trying to get a project car going. I found a 1948 buick roadmaster on ebay, that already has custom work done to it. I really like the car but I have no idea on what is a good price or not. It's at about $10,000 right now. Any feed back is greatly appreciated. Thank...

  8. Paint
    Looking for an airbrush artist / car painter to fix (repaint) my drag car. I had it recently done but it was not what was agreed to nor wanted. I have to get it all repainted and new airbrush artwork done. This is a 1972 Camaro setup for drag racing. The theme is B-17s of WWII. It is dedicated...

    I've been tossing around the idea of trying to make a cooled cup holder using a peltier device and wondered if anyone has done this. My thoughts were to use an aluminum cup holder the size of a water or pop bottle (don't want big cups with lids in the car) and attach one of these devices to each...

    hey guys, just throwing an idea out there to see if its doable. I want to take a shaker scoop off a 6.6 T/A and make it function on my GTO. my question is can you reverse the intake and make it fit? is there a intake that takes a throttle body that sits on top, like a carb, or should I forget...

    A gentleman brought a badly damaged 98 dodge viper to my shop for repair. The hood was wrecked, the body noticeably out of true, and all of the driveline but the V10 trashed. I told him it was barely worth parts. He signed the title over immediately and left. I took what I could and junked the...
