1999 Ford Mondeo V6 ute conversion (Ireland)
and it sounds glorious.
Got the swap all buttoned up last night. Everything went very smoothly. Pulled the old engine, swapped the engine bay harness:
So after 194k miles of abuse, my original trans is finally giving up.
Well, the Ody is back in the shop, this time for power sliding door service after the idiot light for the doors came on this Monday. My dad took it in yesterday and they gave him this brand spanking new Accord EX-L V6 loaner with only 3309 miles on the clock!
Appliance. It’s a word typically associated with large square objects that plug into the wall. They are machines that perform tasks tirelessly, and do so without ever throwing a fit. That is, until they do throw a fit.
Doug DeMuro just uploaded a review of the bumper to bumper warranty on his Aston Martin V8 Vantage Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
I did that perfect car survey thing. First result, with a 96% match... A Sebring Convertible. Followed by..
Ordered and installed an LED interior kit from College Hills Honda. Super bright and I think it works so well with the all black interior.
Pretty cool but I think the NSX C-Series would be better if it would even fit...
And it pains me to say this but... It’s better than the C30 in almost every way. It’s a really really good car. I do miss my funky hatch and Orinoco Blue paint though.
It took a lot of work and negotiating and shopping around, but I finally traded the C30 in for a 2013 V6 Accord Coupe! It is a really classy looking car that really can move too. Im sad to see the C30 go but this is a great replacement!
The car is a 2013 V6 Accord Coupe. 46k miles for $16k. It’s really nice. Fully loaded, great power,and its a Honda. Factoring my trade in (which I’m underwater on) my payments would be less than $20 more than I pay now. But..
Find the best car with a V6 engine. Must be in running condition. Must be under 100K. You must explain why it is the best.
It was way easier than I thought it was going to be giving the direction of the V6. Here’s how the old plug compared to the new, I’d say they did a damn fine job for 105,000 miles and only look worn out, nothing bad happening in there:
Sideways V6 Spark Plugs. This should be interesting
In 1987 Honda released the first generation Legend as the top of the line for their newly launched Acura division in North America. The Legend was also sold as the Rover 800-series in part of a collaboration between Honda and the Austin Rover Group, but the Rover badged variant always scared me due to the looks you…
Driving the 16 camaro has reoriented my feelings towards it and (maybe) the company. I knew I’d be in for a treat, but I was still pleasantly surprised after just a few hours behind the wheel. Mine seemed to be the base model, V6 automatic (nothing I can do there, it being a rental lot in Chicago).
Ever wondered how big of a difference 100 hp as well as meager 1.5 seconds difference looks like on a drag strip? Me and my buddy decided to give it a go. For the hell of it.
