I have often debated how important airdynamics are in fuel economy, and how they compare to weight. do the saturns have plastic panels and are those lighter.
thanks for any info you can give
CFM: I don't know if you can find a spot for this, but the FM100 filter head and cartridge filter will be the best. Check this thread:CFM said:More progress on the car: I have the under-dash wiring pretty much done, just need to get a 6-pin connector so I can tie in some of the hot and switched wiring into the respective Saturn wiring. I still need to move the Saturn fan motor forward another inch so I can put a full-size oil filter back on. I actually have a Saturn oil filter spun on there right now, but it's probably too small to run for this application. I need to pick up a diesel fuel filter, too...any recommendations for this?
Um, yeah...wow is about right. As a fellow fabricator, mad props man. A foundry is definitely something that isn't in my garage haha. That would've come in handy for the set of rear wheel spacer/adapters I had to make for my dually. About 14 hours total of machining in the pair of them. They started life as pieces of 3/4" flat plate .mr.mindless said:wow, the ability to cast something sure beats having to machine from raw stock.
