      Pretty sure that is a 4.2 with the smogged carburetor. Expect gasser HD pickup fuel economy (or worse) with that combo. We had a 1990 with the same drivetrain. Fun trucks.

      Yep. There are a lot of 'credits' available to an OEM to reach 54.5 CAFE. Real world fleet average will likely get to the 40s though IMO.

      I agree that is IS a good thing, but recognize that we are...

      Yep the 225s fit just fine - we ran 225/45 Ho Ho's (EDIT - 13s) with +1" spacers and rolled fenders on the IT car (on 6" wheels though...)

      OK. Well the brake rotor is a centrifugal fan, so the most effective approach is to run a hose from the center of the rotor - take that hose and jam it down into the triangle between the caliper and...

      That seems like a lower, or even negative pressure area if the splitter is close enough to the ground. The ducts will likely get a lot more pressure, and thus air flow if they open above the splitter.

      Another approach is to use the information provided by the "new driver" sign, and provide a bit more margin for their more likely errors in driving. Not doing so would be pretty much equivalent to...

      The last thing I would do is maximize front axle weight with a VR. Just detune the 1.8t a bit, and make sure you cover the reliability items good oil cooler, good oil control in the pan. If you are...

      Um. MOST fuel fill doors are plastic today. Nissan is a notable exception, with all the crooked Altima fuel doors as rolling examples, but even they are looking at plastic doors on future models.

      where does the manifold place the turbo flange? Center, towards front or rear?
      Any photos of the manifold?

      While yes the show is obviously staged in controlled conditions, the premise is not all that far from the reality in SoCal (at least in the late 80s/early 90s). Folks would meet up at a parking lot...

      Probably the same "idiots" that prefer cars that have track worthy driving dynamics, even though they spend all of their time commuting. By your logic everyone should be driving a base Camry.

      No I don't get your drift. Sort of surprised that you think there is some reason that double wish bone, or any other suspension design can only be applied on front (or rear) axles.

      Well like I said, it is not double wishbone, which you seem to be calling "true IRS". By the definition above any suspension with an anti-roll bar is not independent, nor any mac-strut with a bad...

      The torque tube rear on the Golf 1/2/3/4 is also IRS. A beam suspension is what was under the K-cars. Not the same as double wishbone, but it has some (IMO) sophisticated passive rear steer...
