Impreza Exhaust Note
Ever noticed that Imprezas sound like they are "misfiring"???
Well, after listening to some rally car Imprezas, they sound more like a normal 4 cylinder car
After a bit of digging Ive found out why
The Impreza is a flat 4 - 2 cyliners point left and 2 point right. The turbo, however sits to the left of the engine (looking from the front).
The Misfire sound is caused by the time it takes the "bang" from the right hand side cylinders to get to the turbo, and causes 1 of the cylinders to sound like it is firing with one on the left.
The rally cars however use equal length manifolds, causing all "Bangs" to arrive at the turbo at the same time, and give the car a more "normal" sound. Read more sign up..
Hooton Trust Open Day - 25th Sept
What a great day, I was so so relaxed it was unreal. So many people interested in our cars.... Lots of people asking questions about our cars. Great banter between the people who turned up. Different types of army vehicles. Different airplane parts, cockpits, etc. Different ages of buses, also different types. So much history from the past, and a how things have evolved since things began. Hooton is local to us based on the Wirral and ???.

Manufacture Reliability Index
No suprise that Honda, Hyundai and Mazda are there, but Ford! When did they become reliable? It is a good jump for them, considering there old slogun Fix Or Repair Daily. Not that suprised VW has slipped down a few positions though. Quite suprised at Subaru being in such a low position, apparently the stupidly high repair bills for transmissions are to blame. Renault being in the bottom 10 doesnt suprise me to much as the clios electrics are something to be avoided apparently, air bags deploying ecus failing. Register and veiw the top 10 Best and Worst.....
Hundreds of cars face the crusher
A major crackdown on criminals on the roads of north Wales has seen 350 cars crushed in just one month.
The force said Operation Debar was the largest initiative of its kind in the UK. In total, nearly 1,700 cars were seized and 133 arrests were made, as drivers without a licence or insurance and road tax dodgers were targeted. The operation also involved the vehicle licence agency, the DVLA, and the Motor Insurer's Bureau. Officers were equipped with automatic number plate recognition systems.
