    Seems like all terms these days are getting "fuzzy" with the advent of amateur non fact checked dictionaries on the Internet.

    If the rear doors are "concealed", then it would still fit as a SB....

    Is there a number or other reference for this bulletin?

    It is British. Estate is a wagon. Shooting Brake is more like a 2 door wagon - Range Rover Evoque being the current example

    Guess you didn't read the link above?

    The two work in totally different manners, and one generates DC (and doesn't need rectification), the other AC (and requires rectifiers)

    ... And also have to go back in time about 50 years to when they used generators.

    Modern cars use alternators, they work quite differently, specifically, the output is a lot more constant voltage...

    Those kinds of gains are not uncommon in modern engines, but most everyone's experience is not with direct injection, so we will have to see.
  8. Sticky: A Little-V Blog: The ATS-V purchase and ownership experience

    Between the cooling effect of the injection and the fact there just flat out isn't fuel in the cylinder (especially when combined with the purging effect of forced induction) in a direct injected...
  9. Sticky: A Little-V Blog: The ATS-V purchase and ownership experience

    ... Or you could open just about any thermodynamics textbook and learn what science has known for a couple hundred years now.

    Just about all factory tunes are rich, and just about all aftermarket...
  10. Sticky: A Little-V Blog: The ATS-V purchase and ownership experience

    Several years of study in compression engine thermodynamics says BS. You can't make more power by sending unburned fuel out the exhaust. If anything, you want to be slightly LEAN specifically to...
  11. Sticky: A Little-V Blog: The ATS-V purchase and ownership experience

    Lowering the air/fuel will not make more power. Max power is made at stoich. Want to make more power - need more air to burn more fuel, or increase the compression ratio - simple as that.

    If one can forget to push the button, one can forget to turn the key ... I wonder how many cases of that never made the news... Frankly, I wonder if people who can't remember to turn the car off need...

    While I agree with you about the parking brake, I completely disagree about push button start, which has become a "must have" for me.

    That's the part I didn't know - I assumed the clutches were inside the carrier and used the same gear oil.
  15. Sticky: What oil temps are you getting? I would think...

    What oil temps are you getting?

    I would think you would want a gear oil with the limited slip additive. I've always been a fan of Redline, especially the "shockproof" versions.

    Why not keep the V wagon and trade in the regular ATS on the ATS-V?

    The article is so well written and grammatically correct, it must be true! :rolleyes:

    The VSport uses the Bose audio pilot to play ACTUAL engine sounds through the speakers depending on the mode selected. In Tour, it actually works as noise cancellation, Sport is slightly enhanced,...

    Exactly. I would also guess (some have even admitted it) that none of them take a few minutes to set up CUE how they would want it ... Or someone in the press junket did, and that's not how this...

    Yes, welcome to the world of turbo cars. Boost is increased from 12 psi to 18 psi, and then additional power can be added by fine tuning the fuel and ignition mapping.

    Front Belly pan

    What does the stock one look like?

    Personally, I would have gone with countersunk hardware, but then my background is in off-roading.

    I would guess the real answer is that CTS-V gets V8, but the technical excuse is that the TTV6 is lighter and shorter helping the balance.

    What I'm wondering is with the ease of tuning turbo cars...
