Motor is a BBC 402 NOM stock bore completely rebuilt, new edelbrock 750 electric choke, 3 inch exhaust, HEI. Truck has perforamce chevy's dual electic fans. Transmission is a 700r4 completely rebuilt to withstand the torque of a BB truck to the tune of $1700 with a manual 4th gear torque converter lockout switch. NP205 transfer case completely gone through. Truck was taken down to the frame, only the cab remained on during the restore, i did replace the body mounts new poly mounts. Frame was fully cleaned and POR15'd. Completel y new front suspention, including all new energy suspention bushings. All new bearing, tie rods, ball joints. New warn professional 3/4 locking hubs. A/C systems was upgraded with classis air componets now running R134. I removed the behind the seat tank and replaced the 2 saddle tanks with ABS 16 gallon tanks. Each tank has it's own sending unit and is controlled by a switch on the dash. The factory floor tank selector is still intact and works perfectly. 17 inch wheels with 33 inch Hankook all season radials. Truch had a 1 inch lift, with no rubbing for bottoming isssues at all. Paint and body work was complete when I bought the truck, the truck had never been in a wreck, the frame is without any damage and is lazer straight. The rockers look to have been replaced, the paint is of very good quaility, buffs and shines really nice. I would call it very good driver quality, it is close to show but there are a few small blems that keep it from 100% show quality. I would rather under sell the truck then try to over state it. Bed was shot with Raptor bed liner and is in excellent shape. Interior has a very nice custom audio system, and newer chevy suburan middle seats have been fabed in. Seats are very comfortable and enhance the ride of the truck. The driver wind window is inop and the volt meter needs replace other than that the truck is and drives like new. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across counrty. It drives and runs well enough to be a person's only truck, or it would make an execellent weekend warrior and show truck. I build alot of first gen camaro's, this being my first truck, it was fun to build and the few times I haved taken it out I get more looks and completments then some of my 69 camaro's. Truck has about 300 miles on it sense complete, barely broke in, and it drives nicer than it looks.

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.

Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.
Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."

Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
