13.113 @ 116.69 MPH!
This is just the in-car view.
I turned the adjustment on the wastegate 2 turns and the Boost shot up to 20+ PSI. I wasn't expecting this to happen so the car spun badly through first gear. I also short-shifted 3-4 by about 1000 RPM but I was able to run over 116 MPH.

Saturn No Start Case Study (featuring Beau Danner)
Join me and my son Beau on a field trip to Latorres Auto.
He is 8 years old, loves fixing things and has been begging to come with me
on one of my jobs. Of course he wanted to be on camera too.
This is the third car we worked on together. Cars one and two will be a
combined video and I will upload that as soon as I finish some follow up
video on the repair.
Here is the video on VRS Bypass Testing

650hp twin turbo Cummins
This is my first video/picture compilation. More information on trucks mods
are in my garage on dieselplace username POWER_Freak.
Please no chevy/ford /dodge bashing. I know theres a lot of trucks faster than this and a lot of trucks
slower. If your just wanting to talk shit for no reason just don't.
Saturn SL2 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement (DOHC)
This is a long one, Sorry, but it pretty much goes through the step by step
and shows some of my mistakes so you don't make them.
Also, verify that the gasket fits. If you have the time then I would
suggest bringing the valve cover in with you(assuming you bought it from a
local parts store) and make sure it fits before leaving. I must have gotten
one from a bad batch because the first one was too big. You will see that
in the video. The second try was the right(ish) one. apparently it is a
known problem that the molding process is incorrect for these gaskets but
luckily they are rubber so you can just remold it to fit.
Also a word of caution: at some point you may see me use carburetor cleaner
on the plastic valve cover. DO NOT use carburetor cleaner on the plastic.
The main ingredient is Acetone(which I also use to clean) and it has the
ability to melt the plastic. Use another solvent that is friendly to
plastics like mineral spirits.
Good Luck and Hope this helps you save some money. Spent about $60 total
doing this in tools and parts.

Regular Car Reviews: 2000 Saturn L-Series
Take me back to 1999's cherry topping. The year 2000 was perfect. The music
was payola-fueled and I had a 56k PCI modem. The Saturn L-Series was the
last bare-palmed handy before it was time to go to work forever.
Thank you to powerofktulu for bringing his Saturn wagon out on a beautiful
Sunday. I hope your indie film goes well. Here is his youtube page.
Take me back to the 90's. I want to wait thirty minuets to burn a cd. I
want to wait for mom and dad to go to sleep so I can go online without
tying up the phone. My Game Gear doesn't work anymore.
