    WTFH? I watched that not just yesterday, it was on my recommended list.

    He has that 4 barrel wrong, it should be rotated 90 degrees for optimal part throttle distribution.

    Good information in there, and surprisingly some things I hadn't considered. My 81 block would have the lighter crank, then, which could be used in my aluminum block.

    I wonder how many cigarette ashes he's dropped into a carburetor...

    So, there's a few tuner companies that deal with SHO performance. I'm considering a "93 octane" tune. Programmer, plugs, t-stat, and air intake. It'll bring power up to about 425hp and drop the car deep into the 12s.

    OK I know this is 14 minutes long and the girl looks like Dexter's sister but when she goes off book she makes some hilarious comments.

    Re: The sR Car Thread

    So, here's a fun one:

    Going to replace the valve cover gasket on my 2002 Saturn SL1 - which is still running fine, but the existing gasket needs replacing (which appears easy enough to do, just need to not rush anything). BUT I'm finding that I can't get a... good answer on how much torque to use to put the two bolts back in. I've heard everything from 8,9,10lbs to 16-18lbs, to 22lbs. 22lbs seems like that might be the spec... but I can't find that really referenced anywhere. And it might only be the spec if you're using nothing but RTV (and not an actual physical gasket (VS50701R) - though I'll use a bit of RTV on the two points where the cylinder head meets the timing cover (I believe)) SO if you use the 22lbs torque on the gasket you may actually be over torquing it? ugh.

    According to my data bases, the spec is 22 lb/ft.

    Oh nice - then I was on the right track...! Sheesh. Last thing I want to do is break something :P Then I'm thinking the remaining trick here is making sure the gasket doesn't move when I put the cover back on so I don't squash it unevenly heh.

    Re: The sR Car Thread

    That was fun and took a while longer than expected :P - didn't notice that the torque wrench was in/lbs rather than ft/lbs, had to return the 'loaner' and get a different one, but then it had a larger drive size and..out of all the stuff I have I didn't have anything that went from a 1/2 to something that could hold the 1/4 t40 torque bit. ugh. that added more time. Though first time we've really used a torque wrench (newb there), and so far so good - looks like it's not leaking, but going to change the oil/filter today (was going to do that yesterday) ahh well!

    Re: The sR Car Thread

    I prefer beam-type torque wrenches, and I do have a 1/2" one and a 1/4" drive one. Click type, I have 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4. Bought the 3/4 to put my trailer hitch together (260 ft-lbs). The hitch ball gets torque to 450 ft lbs. How do you measure that? You don't. I just put my impact gun on it and tightened the shit out of it.
