S13 Top Speed And Engine Failure
testing top speed of 200SX S13 1.8 turbo

were bigger than stock)... conrod broke in 5th gear at 6400rpm (at top
speed and peak power) and was launched trough engine block... on german

that good, but checked all the fluids...after the engine blew it acctualy
didnt matter, I really dont like CA engines anyway... right now i have 3

EZcarlift -- Model SU - mobile mechanics' lift
Model SU has been developed specifically for the mobile mechanic. The unit
is completely re-designed to accommodate the HORIZONTAL movement of the
lifted vehicle, utilizing some of the standard EZcarlift components.
The unit is perfect for rotating or changing tires; changing oil and oil
filter; brake inspection and/or replacing break pads and break shoes;
detailing; maintenance etc., etc.
To use the unit, just roll it under the vehicle, adjust the pads to the
lifting points and slowly begin to lift.

MOTIVATION FOR THE NEW MECHANICS. HOW TO BECOME A PROFICIENT MECHANIC
This is a tutorial to help inspire those who are considering being an
Automotive Mechanic/ Technician in the Automotive Industry. I explain the
way I did it and what it takes to become a Proficient and Competent
Mechanic. It will take hard work, determination and passion in order for
the new Mechanic to pave his/her way through the Automotive trade. I
strongly emphasize going to school ( Automotive Technology School), Strong
thorough study in Diagnostics, Electronics, Computerized Engine Controls,
learning from the Wrecking Yard (to get hands on) and learning from the
Oldskool Mechanics/Technicians. Chase your dreams and don't let any one
kill your ambition or will to succeed in anything you want to do. The
choice is yours, TAKE MASSIVE ACTION AND BE FEARLESS. With GOD (JESUS
CHRIST) all things are possible.
How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.

Technician vs Mechanic -ETCG1
The idea for Technician vs Mechanic comes from the suggestion box at
EricTheCarGuy.com. jjrobs399 asked what the difference between a mechanic
and technician was. It's a fair question to be sure, and one that I feel
may inspire some debate. The point I try and make in this video is that
yes, there are differences between the 2, however, I feel they both have a
place and one is not necessarily better than the other. At least that's the
way I feel about it.
I also touch on the fact that technology has crept into just about every
automotive system in modern vehicles, therefore on some level I think you
could consider all auto mechanics 'technicians' these days. It's just a
thought. One that I hope brings us higher pay, and more importantly,
respect in the coming years.
Thanks for watching.
