Re: Education and Car tuning, yeah a boring subject.

It can be very hard to define what an engineer is since the environments and scenarios differ from one workplace to another. As a Systems Engineer, I generate requirements, test requirements, build ...

Re: techno square

I believe they do a lot of mechanical work as well, but most of it is race or performance related work. While they may do work that you need, im sure it would come at a higher cost than normal. It doesnt hurt to shop around. Where are you located?

I thought they mainly did tuning for ecu's. I had them work on a Stealth ECU for my supra long ago.
What are you looking to get done?

They arent cheap but are not overly pricey either. All depends on what you are doing.

Re: AE86 insurance help. Total loss situation.

Its Obama's new bill "Crash for Clunkers" where the Gov pays old ladies in Gov cheese and free bingo tickets to smash anything pre OBDII.

Kidding aside, I dont know how you can dispute the adjuster unless he/she was a car person. They really do go by the books when handling claims.

Its a good combo.... a bit difficult to manage with a manual rack on harsh entryways as the little wheel wants to fight pretty hard against you. And if you dont have a good grip, will try and chop your fingers off.

Re: Skylines

Good choice, and their value has been increasing in the recent years. I considered getting an early NSX, but just never truly decided if I wanted that car. But I wish I had when it was on my mind. They were more plentiful and cheaper.
