    That is very cool and for only $999 (and I'm guessing some aftermarket folks could do this for half the money)! Ford Focus RS Drift Stick Electronic Handbrake - Drift Stick Info and Pricing
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just saw this tidbit: First Drive: 2018 Ford F-150 | Automobile Magazine In reading through it, I find it very interesting how Ford has now added Multi-port fuel injection AND direct injection systems to their newest 2018 engine lineup that includes both turbo and NA based engines. That tells...
  3. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Just saw this about the new Ford F150 for 2017. Seems that Ford has finally thrown in the towel concerning carbon deposits on the intake valves and added back port fuel injection that cleans the valves with gasoline along with the GDI system. Toyota did the same with one of their 4-cyclinder...
  4. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Long story short, my friends and i thought it would be hilarious to put ford emblems on my optima for the month of October. Like a costume for my car and also it would confuse the heck out of people, i think haha:lmao: im wondering if you guys can help me look online for cheap ford emblems with...
  5. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Came across an interesting youtube video about intake chemical cleaning (like seafoam) actually ruining turbos in Ford Ecoboost motors. Thought it'd be a good thing to share here. The video goes to say that all the added chemicals that get injected into the cylinders during the chemical...
  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Did anyone that purchased a Optima compare it with the 2013 2014 Ford Fusion. If so what made you choose the Optima? My main reasons were 3 fold. First I found out that my Oprima(2013 EX) was built in the USA vs Mexico for the Ford. I might add that this is the first car I ever purchased...

    I have an opportunity to purchase a warranty wrap for $500 (discounted?) to extend the Kia warranty to 10/100,000. What is the usual cost for this? Has anyone used either Zurich or Ford warranty (both with $100 deductable), what are your experiences?

  9. Hybrids
    Apparently Ford can increase their mileage through software updates. Question is can Kia do the same with their hybrid
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So heres the deal. i have been debating with myself for months now trying to decide what new car to get. As you can probably tell from the title post i have it pretty much narrowed down to the 2013 optima or 2013 fusion. Right now im leaning towards the optima(part of the reason i joined the...

    CR Critizes Small Displacement Turbos Consumer Reports finds small turbo engines don't deliver on fuel economy claims
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I completed a long test drive in a Ford Fusion Titanium model. This is my comparison to the Optima SXL. Exterior: All agree in the automotive world that both cars possess eye-catching styling. Personally, the weak spot on the Optima is the strength on the Fusion – the “A” pillar forward...
