    It's probably valve float.

    My cars rev limiter is at 7200rpm(redline starts at 6800), but the engine feels like it is really lean (going off of how a 2 stroke sounds when it's lean vs rich) and gutless after about 6700.
    It's like the valvetrain gets really loud and the engine 'power' sound gets quiet. Kinda sounds like a power saw soundtrack fades in.

    I'm not saying i think there is something wrong, i just find it interesting. It makes sense that the engine starts behaving this way near it's limit to me. The most i ever rev it to is usually around 6500rpm, because it's pretty much faster to shift at those rpm anyways. The only times i've gone higher was when i first got it.
    Supposed to be like that, cam's fault. The ol' stocker runs out of go at around ~5800 IIRC, after that it's downhill, you REALLY start to feel it around redline though. It happens.

    I never understood why people would rev to the limiter with engines that make all of their torque/power in the lower-mid range of the powerband.

    this is like taking my 7mgte that make it max torque at 3.5k, max hp at 5.5k, power fall flat at 5.8k and then rev it to the stock limiter (6.75k)

    only increasing wear, risking valve float and making my pistonts see incredible speed (longstroke ftl)

    Well in my case, my car makes max hp at 6100rpm, and max torque at 4500rpm (says the wiki), so revving to 6500rpm puts me right back in the power when i change gears. It's a different story in my brothers jetta 4cyl, it's all bottom end power.

    Ok Ill try and organize this properly.

    For months now my Jeep has had this fuel issue, at least I think. My car has a rough idle that happens like 75% of the time. All of these problems are never fully consistent but happen frequently. My exhaust chuggs at idle, like it booms out of the tail pipe but not a back fire. When I accelerate, sometimes my car will shake and almost every single time, at the same place, from 45 to 55, my car violently shakes but if I really stomp on the pedal, it'll stop. I also smell what you smell from fireworks when it chugs at idle.

    It's been really pissing me off. I've changed the fuel filter, checked the cataitlyic converter and that's not it so now I believe the fuel injectors but I really don't know.

    If it's happening, try unplugging the injectors one at a time while it's running. If one doesn't change anything then there you go.

    Anyone ever had their car fucked with?

    My mate a few doors down with a pretty nice 200SX had his wing mirror kicked off last night. He's a sound guy with no enemies so it was just some twat doing it out of spite. Kinda puts me off buying something that's gonna draw attention next. Luckily my car's down the drive but still in pretty clear view. Not the first time it's happened, the FTO just round the corner had the windscreen smashed in a few months back.

    I've "fucked" with cars before. I think I've said it before (on the watevaman account), but when I went to ALMS in Baltimore we went to Wal-Mart to get some food and because all the people in Baltimore are of the black persuasion and insanely loud and annoying, I went down the row and folded everyone's mirrors in.

    But I'd never do anything that would actually damage a car unless it was like a member of the KKK or something.

    Same. I've let tyres down in the past, only because it was a car I recognised had cut me up a few days before

    But actually damaging a car is bang out of order, you've gotta have a real decent reason to justify it... To fuck with a strangers car just because it's nice fucking boils my piss. I'd love to catch someone doing mine.

    My dad and his friends would open the hood of each others cars (because back then on some old vehicles you could open the hood from the outside) and pull all the wires off the spark plugs so when they go to start the vehicle they would have to put it all back together.

    If it's got a faulty fuel injector you can find out which one isn't working by disconnecting one at a time. Unplug it and the engine runs worse? That injector is working. Unplug it and the engine barely/doesn't notice? Found the bad one.


    Same thing you do to find dead cylinders with an engine that has a distributor, only you're unplugging fuel injectors instead of spark plugs.

    So my TPS grenaded or one of my harness connections went sour (I honestly didn't mess with the TPS connection when I redid the harness because it looked fine, maybe should have done that now).

    Gotta check it out tomorrow. For now I'm going to go kick some stuff around the shop and then pass out.

    Fair play on the apology. Most drivers round my area just do that thing where they speed off and when you catch them up stare straight ahead, pretending they can't see you giving them the 'what the fuck?' look.

    I'm not sure how I feel about it. I don't really like the curved front end, and the back end reminds me of a brick. Thoughts? (Agree for like, disagree for dislike, or useful for neutral)
