What To Look For When Buying An Aged Car

Many would assume that a car that is no longer running is not worth anything and that the best thing to do is to give it away or maybe donate it to an organization. This is not necessarily the case however; there are ways to get cash for junk cars, you just have to know the correct way to go about it.

It depends on the condition and wear on the stock clutch. If it is in good condition, yes, it will hold the power, pretty well in fact, although you may experience clutch slip while at full boost in high gears such as 5th and 6th. If you drive vigorously, meaning you run at high boost frequently, then the life of the stocker will be GREATLY shortened. Be surprised if you see an extra 10,000 miles after BPU(TM).

Have you ever picked up a bottle of fuel additive? You’d see the before and after picture of carbon buildup. Those little $6 bottles recommended for every 3,000 miles. Well, HHO naturally removes carbon buildup, and this is achieved for the price of water. Removing carbon buildup alone makes an engine more efficient and run cooler. A more efficient cooler running engine adds horsepower and lasts longer. As soon as you add HHO into your air intake you’ll immediately notice a smoother running engine.

BPU(TM)’d Supras run a little on the rich side as far as fuel ratios go. This hurts power. What it does do is provide a catalytic converter recyclers safety margin that makes engine damage through detonation unlikely. If you get a fuel controller, and tune it properly (on a dyno, with an accurate EGT gauge, and a high band O2 (The Stock O2 sensors are not accurate), then you should be able to gain a noticeable amount of power. One of the most popular electronic fuel controllers is the A’PEXi S-AFC. The Fields SFC is good too.

I recommend starting with raising the boost of the stock turbos to roughly 18psi. This will require a quality boost gauge and a boost cut eliminator (GReddy BCC). You will achieve 15 or so PSI with the stock Down Pipe in place. This will provide an addition of approximately 30rwhp. After those modifications are completed, it would be a logical next step to install the Down Pipe and Cat-Back Exhaust at the same time. You will now be at full BPU(TM).

So, I did some research and found a way to cut my gas bill in half. I actually did the research after my ex-husband had told me he built a hydrogen generator and turned his fleet of service vehicles into water burning hybrids.

NO! If you’re getting more miles per gallon, then show me where your losing energy. These cells work off of your battery, which is recharged by your alternator. So do they draw power? Of course they draw power, so do your windshield wipers, air conditioning and lights… Do those kill your battery? Well if you leave your lights on without your vehicle running yes! The point is the battery is taking the load, but being replenished by the alternator, just as you wouldn’t leave your lights on without the car running the same applies to your fuel cell. A set of good plans accounts for this. The benefits of using hydrogen far outweigh the initial costs.
