After I noticed the sagging, I removed the coilover and took it to several local shops to be...

Porsche Crest Rear Suspension Sagging on One Side

First of all, hello again everyone! It's been a really long time since I last visited, and a recent issue with my 930 Slantnose had prompted me to return to this forum.

As the title says, my rear...

Thanks guys for the feedback.

I checked my engine and found no vacuum leaks. My next theory then was perhaps the ignition coil needed replacing, which I did but to no avail. After that, I...

Porsche Crest Engine hesitates unless turbo spools up

I'm having this strange issue where my 951's engine runs as if it's misfiring at "city speeds", but then suddenly runs normally when the turbo spools up.

Any idea why it's doing this? My guess is...

I've always found the whole drive-by-wire thing to be a bit iffy because it isn't entirely foolproof. With a traditional gear lever, you can easily see what position it's in and therefore easily...

The Impreza WRX/STi certainly doesn't have the nicest-sounding boxer engine.

Yes, they are 33's. They've worn unevenly though, so we have to get the wheels aligned soon.

With the 22R's 97 hp, it's quite a struggle reaching 70 mph on the highway.

I think it may have the...

These old Toyota Pickup 4x4's are awesome, especially the ones with the 22R/22R-E 4-cylinder, but it just sucks how they're gradually becoming rarer. However, despite their rarity, some places have a...

I owned a 1978 BMW E12 530i 4-speed many years ago. I remember the wheels were so light I could lift one up with just my pinky finger. It was one of the best cars I'd ever owned and I still miss it :)

I used to be a dirt bike enthusiast, so I prefer them over ATV's. They're light and easy to transport, whereas ATV's are the opposite. The extra weight of an ATV can also injure you more seriously...

Sounds like a pretty nice car, and considering 930's nowadays are going for 6-digits, $58,000 isn't too bad.

We would like to see pics of it :)

They actually can. I think DeLoreans are capable of 120 mph. Although many DeLoreans are equipped with an 85 mph speedometer, there are apparently only three known to be equipped with a 140 mph...

I've taken both my 930 Slant and 951 up to 140 mph a few times, but I very rarely go faster than that. However, I once got my 930 Slant up to 150 mph in 4th gear. I hadn't made it to 5th gear yet and...

Is your intake connected to the throttle via a rubber boot/90-degree elbow? Assuming it is, it may have loosened up somewhere and could be causing a small air leak.
