Adjusting the Pipes

Posted by Jim Stelling | Aftermarket Car Parts Accessories,Car Parts,Fashion & Accessories,Performance | Wednesday 16 November 2011 11:28 am

If you are a car guy, then you have probably rebuilt a car or two out of parts. However, for those who have no idea how to rebuild a vehicle (let alone why they should), these are a few thoughts for you. Let’s talk pipes.

Your exhaust and tail pipes are important to both the mileage and overall image of your vehicle. Regardless of the type of vehicle you own, Sacramento custom exhaust systems will help your baby look and feel like a winner. Here are your options.

Image – The design of your exhaust system can drastically change how the public views your vehicle. Custom bending and design of exhaust and tail pipes can shape your dreams for the perfect look and also add to the animal magnetism of your project. In short, custom designs add a bit of awesomeness.

Performance – As any good car guy knows, your vehicle’s performance can be seriously affected by the exhaust system. So, if you want to optimize performance or increase your fuel mileage, a new system might be just the thing. The key is to find a garage or person who specializes in custom designs so you gain performance instead of lose it.

Options – If you want to increase performance or simply improve the image of your vehicle, you have options. Custom pipes come in stainless steel or aluminized tubing, so you can pick your poison. Plus, you can choose any size between 1 inches and 6 inches, so it will look exactly how you’ve envisioned it.

Let’s be honest – Unless your car doesn’t run, it technically doesn’t need any work. But the entire point of working on a car isn’t to get it to run. You want a car that gives you a personal sense of style, a car that others look at with envy. In other words, you want to build a dream and then show it off. And that’s okay! The goal of any good rebuild is to gain a working vehicle that looks as awesome as it feels to drive. Aim for that goal.

Can you say HEMI?

That sounds so good – doesn’t it?

John Beltz was Oldsmobile’s chief engineer in 1964 and one of the prime movers of the Toronado and 442 project.

Thanks vistacruiser67

Beltz was promoted to Oldsmobile general manager at age 43 in 1969 when Harold N. Metzel retired. Beltz passed away in May of 1972 from cancer at the age of 46. John Beltz is leaning on a dual fan 455 Olds and posing with other experimental Olds engines that never saw production. Here are descriptions of these engines: 1. The 0W-43 all aluminum 455 with 4 valve per cylinders, four overhead cam Weber engine. With a redline of just under 8500rpm it was originally conceived for CAN AM racing. At 3000rpm it put out 300hp and at 6000rpm registered over 600hp. The top output recorded for this engine in the Lansing dyno facility was 700 real hp at 6800rpm. Tests were run with both carbueration and fuel injection. The block was cast from Reynolds 356 alloy and fitted with pressed-in dry steel cylinder liners for the Forged-True 12.20to 1 pistons. Billet steel connecting rods by Carillo was used along with a forged steel crank.

Oldsmobile legends.

The engine weighed in at 50 pounds lighter than the production 455 motor! It was developed at the same time as the ZL-1 Chevy 427 motor. 2. The W-43 4 valve per cylinder 455 developed by JOHN BELTZ , LLOYD GILL , JOE JONES AND FRANK BALL. Rated at 500-550hp with a single Rochester Quadrajet on an aluminum manifold. Constructed with both cast iron heads and block and with aluminum-alloy block and heads 75 pounds lighter than the conventional 455

Peugeot – the Affordable French Racing Monster?

Posted by Racerx | Other – Auto Racing,Performance,Peugeot | Thursday 5 August 2010 2:00 pm

Why Lease Peugeot Vehicles?

The French manufacturer Peugeot has long been on the radar for drivers due to their reputation for producing high quality, affordable, family-friendly vehicles. First founded in 1891 by Armand Peugeot under the name Societe des Automobiles Peugeot, Peugeot’s roots go way back to the 19th century.

The Peugeot family first started off in the coffee mill and bicycle manufacturing industry. Inspired by using steel rods to produce bicycles; the Peugeot family turned their hand to automobile manufacturing around the turn of the century. The first Peugeot vehicle (a three-wheeled steam powered car) was produced in 1889 but the 3-wheeled design was quickly abandoned in favour of 4-wheeled vehicles with petrol-fuelled engines.

Since its first foray into the world of automobile manufacture; Peugeot has gone from strength to strength. With an annual yearly revenue of around €55 billion (2008) it’s clear the new range of Peugeot models (106, 206, RCZ Coupe, 308 etc) are proving to be a big hit with drivers all around the world. In fact, Peugeot models are constantly topping the lease lists of major companies around the globe.

So, what is it that makes Peugeot vehicles such a popular lease choice?
