Weber 45 DCOE vs R1 40mm bike carbs
Flow testing Weber 45 DCOE with 36mm hhoke and 4.5 aux venturi vs R1 40mm
Keihin bike carbs both at WOT
R1 carbs flow a little more air but when 37mm chokes or larger are fitted
to the 45's they flow more than R1 40mm bike carbs, back to back testing
My Peugeot 309 1.3 ohv on R1 carbs
My 1.3 ohv 309 at santa pod raceway on the rolling road. Normaly this
engine gives 64hp at the flywheel. With the aid of a Yamaha R1 carb
conversion I got that up to 78.5 at 6500rpm. Not alot but not bad lol
Regular Car Reviews: 1991 BMW E30 318i
The BMW E30 is the prerequisite to "being a car guy" even more than the
Mazda Miata MX5.
The M42 engine was not put into E30 sedans until 1991, although it did
exist in E30 318is coupes. It was in every E36, so in a lot of ways my E30
is sort of unique.
This car is one of the few E30s to not have a sunroof. The point is most
people weren't as cheap as the original owner who bought this car in 1991.
In fact, This E30 only has one optional extra: a digital clock/temp gauge.
That might have been standard in 1991. I'm not sure but it wasn't at the
start of the E30. It is the cheapest E30 you could buy in 1991. The fact
that it doesn't have a sunroof is sort of a subculture thing; I've heard
them referred to as "slick tops".
This E30 is untouched in terms of performance; as slow as BMW wanted it to
be. Lots of E30s are slammed or track-day focused, but mine is stock as a
rock. Still great to drive.
Ask any E30 owner, maintenance is expensive and sucks. In a lot of ways,
owning an E30 is like dating a super-expensive high-maintenance MILF who
cheats on you and sometimes abuses you, but whom you live anyway.

Regular Car Reviews: Corvettes at Carlisle 2014
No matter what you think of Corvettes themselves or the kind of culture
they cultivate, it's hard not
to respect the amount of dedication that goes into Corvette ownership.
We've reviewed several, and
we've yet to meet someone who ever takes their responsibility lightly. And
that's deserving of a certain
respect in itself.
