acura integra pics : I'm contemplating a new car, and am awaiting the new Jetta. But, afriend suggested I consider the Passat. Aside from the higher price,I'd be curious to hear opinions as to the differences.Personally, the Passat is kind of "boring", esp. compared to the moreaggressive looking Audi A4 skin....I kind of feel the darker colorslook better than the lighter ones, but hey, it's just an opinion,right?I think the new Jetta will be better looking.... and the automotivepress also corroborates this too.Current Passat = Audi A4Upcoming Golf/Jetta = Audi A3 (European model only)Both are great cars. I, personally, think that the Passat is too big, butI live in Boston where drivers of big cars can expect not to be able topark, or even navigate some of the streets.The new Golf/Jetta, at least according to the pics at ,look similar to the Passat, but smaller. I, personally, think that the newstyling themes look better on a smaller car.On a side note, ScottVW has pics of a Jetta Coupe (!!). If that car isproduced, it will be my next VW.The new Golf/Jetta aren't going to look like Audi A4's, despite beingabout the same size - they're getting the same styling treatment that thenew Passat has. VW and Audi have their own styling departments, and comeout with different cars. They actually do a much better jobdifferentiating their brands than either Honda/Acura, Toyota/Lexus, or anyof the multi-brand American companies. You will never see an oversightlike an Acura with HONDA stamped on the gas cap (as a friend's AcuraIntegra has).
acura integra pics : If you want Audi styling, save up for the Audi. An Audi A4 is not thatmuch more expensive than a loaded Passat, and comes with enough standardequipement that you really don't need to inflate its price with options.Audi also, IMHO, is currently making some of the best cars in the world.Once they win a few more Car-of-the-Year awards (how many so far? 5?),they'll probably start giving BMW a run for their money.I must disagree. A little time spent on one of the car pricingengines (e.g. Microsoft Carpoint) will reveal that an A4 will runabout $3500 - $4000 more than a similarly equipped Passat. For me,that's a pretty good chunk o' change. The A4 also has a much smallerback seat (if this important to you). However, you can get a sportsuspension on the Audi, which you can't do on the Passat (in the USA,anyway). Styling is subjective, though I'll admit that I do preferthe A4 over my Passat, but the practical considerations outweighed theesthetic when it came time to plunk down my money.a_j_v_d_h | You're clever, figure at | out my real address. i_b_m dot n_e_t | No bulk e-mail.
acura integra pics : It's been a while since I've been in here. Hope everyone is kickin'!!! Anyway, Ifinally found the best placement for my sub in the hatch of my '99 Integra. It'splaced up against the right side of the rear wall of the hatch, with the subfacing the left side of the hatch, thus firing sideways into the hatch, nottoward the cabin, not toward the sky, and *not* rear firing. I've tried everydamn position and this has been best. It's also convenient, as the box (sealed70 ft ^3 with single IDQ 10")locks into the corner rather well.Hey, if you get a chance, would you put up some pics of it? I have a '00 Integraand would like to see how it looks. I'm trying to go for a stealth look. Thanks.how about zapco's install on a 99 teg at sbn 14. talk about tight i almost shitmyself. very cool.Yep, I have pix up, the install isn't too stealth though. I ran the cables underthe carpet, and they come up through the slits right behind the rear seats. So,it's kinda stealth from a cable point of view. Otherwise, the amps and box areright in front of ya......
acura integra pics : I know a lot of you guys want to know if installation of the Vortech orother centrifugal type superchargers is beyond the ability of a hackmechanic (like me). I think it's worthwhile to save the $500+ you typicallyget charged for a professional install. I've put together 4 pages ofinstallation pictures and comments at my website. Let me know what youthink...---Ken Vortech'ed '99 Mustang GT **New Vortech install pictures** One question: did you have to remove the oil pan to tap it? If not how didyou keep any metal bits from getting into the oil?Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keepyour mouth shut."Ken Davis" wrote in message...I know a lot of you guys want to know if installation of the Vortech orother centrifugal type superchargers is beyond the ability of a hackmechanic (like me).

The hole is made with aseries of increasingly larger punches until the hole is big enough to acceptthe right tap. The tap is coated with a heavy grease that suspends theshavings in it, preventing them from entering the pan. It's the hardest partof the install, but not really that hard..just tedious.

What type/size ofpunches and what type of tap. Where's the best place to get those pieces?I'm not Ken, but I have done a few Vortech installs.

The process of using the punch (as opposed to a drill) avoidsthe metal shavings. There is still some possibility of getting some metalshavings when you use the tap. I actually tried to flow a little bit of oilthrough the new hole hoping it would catch some metal shavings if they werethere. You can tap the line with the oil still in the car. I didn't noticeany shavings in the oil.
