    I don't think very many people understand the importance of having back pressure with an exhaust. I was talking to a guy the other day that owns a brz and had alread blown 2 valves. Those huge pipes aren't meant for an n/a car. For turbo applications. Maybe some of you more technical people and...

    I noticed today on the BBC News website that Toyota has debuted a new concept auto, the “Future Toyota 1”, or FT-1, at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. Apparently no technical specifications are available at present, and no word on if the concept will make it beyond the video game stage and into...

    It's my understanding that the engine uses both direct and port injection systems, but when exactly is it doing one or the other? and does the port injection happen enough to dissolve the carbon buildup on the valves caused by direct injection? I ask cause I'm looking at getting a subaru next...

    I just got my 2013 BRZ last week. I've put around 150 miles on it so far. I have noticed that whenever I change into the 2nd gear, I hear a little clunk from under (around) the transmission. This also happens at times when shifting into 3rd gear. Does anyone else see this behavior? Is it normal...

    anybody notice with A/C on and braking for a stop, the idle drops to 500rpm for a second and engine sounds like a quiet jackhammer? or diesel? it's got to be the direct fuel injection making the noise as the engine almost stalls. any TSB's for this?

    I am going to purchase a set of the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's. I will never track this car. But I will daily drive in cold temperatures (picture November/December in Pennsylvania on days with no snow). Thus, both the stock tires and aftermarket dedicated summer tires are the not the...
