If you are anything like we are, you have been finding yourself thinking and being frustrated about the rise in gas prices when you go to fill up your tank. You have also probably considered purchasing a hybrid vehicle. The small amount of savings in fuel with these cars is not enough to warrant the $30000 spent on the vehicle itself.
That stands for any additional power producing modifications other than the basic BPU(TM) modifications. One “+” refers to Adj. Cam Gears and under-drive pulleys, the second “+” refers to a Fuel controller, ECU upgrade, etc. For instance, a Supra with the BPU(TM) modifications, plus a front-mount intercooler, would be called BPU(TM)+. If you added cam gears to that, it would be BPU(TM)++, and so on. The “BPU(TM)” term is used until you have an upgraded turbo(s). Then it is referred to as APU, advanced performance upgrades. This designation pretty much covers every modification that can be performed.
Since long time, the discussion on using hydrogen is going on. It discharges just the steam into the atmosphere. The disadvantage is that it can be hazardous, in fact, immensely hazardous. The cars that take tanks of hydrogen would not say much in this context. A huge amount of money is being spent to develop techniques that can manufacture impassable tanks to carry hydrogen, once there is hassle free solution, a solution that can be prepared by anyone.
For example, suppose your catalytic converter price guide is failing, so you drive your vehicle to your local mechanic. The manual for your make and model lists the job at two hours. Further suppose the technician is able to replace the catalytic converter in one hour. Even though it’s arguably unfair, you’ll still be charged for two hours of labor. The extra billable time is pure profit for the shop.
Basically this device provides crutial isolation between the engine driven accessories, and the crankshaft. However, removal of this can provide a 10-15rwhp gain, but at a cost for long term use.
Go back to the time when these cars were first manufactured. Were they manufactured by the big shot companies? Was it the diversification by train companies into cars? The answer is No. rather, small inventors and machinists who initiated the task and formed the base of main auto companies that exist even today. The Wright brothers were originally bicycle vendors and people used to make fun of their efforts to fly.
Start the vehicle. Look for any leaks and listen to be sure the car sounds quiet and well tuned. Lower the car from the blocks and give it a test drive before you conclude your repairs. With these simple steps, you can change rusty exhaust equipment on your own, and save hundreds in repair costs.
