    Engine Guide Updating

    I'm working on updating all of the guides. The engine guide is up first.

    Feel free to follow along as I update the code periodically. I'm only about 30% finished at this point...

    ...does anybody else detect a bad case of over-lapping engines here?

    Wonder what the cylindrical doodad is on the output of the new 2.5's exhaust manifold. Could it be the catalytic converter?

    Is there any way to remove that Facebook square? It's in the way of your text, plus it slows down my page loading (shamefully, I'm still on dialup).

    Suggestion: Put them in order of displacement.

    2.5L in the Impala has less power than the Malibu's?

    Looks great.

    Why don't you start an engine archive as well, rather than just deleting the old entries.

    If you're still on dial up, I highly recommend disabling the sidebar. Instructions here: https://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f...-fixed-107799/

    Re: Engine Guide Updating

    Alright, car engines are mostly there now. I still have some tweaking on them, but not much. Check out that little fact I added to the LSA https://www.gminsidenews.com/index.php?page=Engine_Guide

    Haven't touched truck engines yet.

    That's awesome. Good to know ZL1 owners can race their car all day long with no worries.

    Alright. I have now touched every engine on the page. I will go over it all once more and tweak everything, then it should be done!

    One correction. Every version of the HD trucks use the LML Duramax now. LGH is only the vans.

    Re: Engine Guide Updating

    Why do they make the non turbo 1.4 Cylinder when they can get the same horsepower and are ashamed to publish the torque from the same motor... from the 1.2.
    This motor seems hopelessly inadequate, you need to get at least 100 HP from a 1.0 liter motor these days.. without a blower...
