  1. Adding navigation to non-nav MyFord touch

    My 2015 has MyFord touch and I was reading that navigation can be installed through the SD card on non navigation MyFord touch units. Someone told me that non navigation equipped cars don't have the necessary hardware to make it work but I don't buy that. Besides the SD card, what else would I...
  2. Cylinder head temps a little too high?

    Was driving to the mall today, and when i pulled into a stall, i noticed the coolant temps were a little high. Its about 66 outside, and the temps were over 200, and would rise slowly, i think before i shut off the car it was 210. After i got home i pulled into my garage and the temps went up...
  3. Hesitation and smoke out the exhaust

    Tonight I was driving home when I encountered my usual hill. Second gear, about 2500RPM, and I decided to give it half throttle. The car started hesitating, not like a misfire, and when I looked out my side mirror to change lanes I saw a huge cloud of smoke coming out the exhaust. But when I...
  4. Toyota Land Cruisers in Texas

    Since moving to Texas, I see COUNTLESS Toyota Land Cruisers roaming Austin. Living in Hawaii and California, I saw next to none, but here in Texas they're EVERYWHERE. I mean, it's not a cheap SUV at all (starting at $84k) but around here they're on every street corner. Anyone from Texas can...
  5. SVE GT350 wheel and tire sets from LMR

    So it's time to change tires soon, and, seeing as new tires plus mounting and balancing is going to run me about $1200 or so, i found that for a few hundred more I can get me a new set of the SVE GT350 wheel and tire kits for $1600. Albeit it's with the cheaper Ohtsu tires (basically a...
  6. Building the motor before going big turbo

    This is a hypothetical situation. Lets say i wanted to go big turbo in the future. Would it make sense if i built the bottom end up now and still retain the stock turbo and head and then go big turbo in the future when funds allow and turn up the wick from the get go? I would look at it as...

    Hey guys, new to Austin and Texas in general. I have a question about winter tires. Now, I've never experienced a winter below 40 degrees, and i don't know what to expect here. Does the temps in the central texas area get down to the point where i would need winter tires? I have the...
  13. Bigger turbo with stock exhaust

    So I've been thinking a lot about a bigger turbo lately, maybe going with a full-race kit or a kit from MAP, but I want to leave the stock exhaust in place for that sleeper effect. I know i would have to use the downpipe for the bigger turbo so that can't be changed, but i wanted to leave the...
