Since that person used to different motors with 2 different hp rating and tq, wouldn't the stronger motor be pushing the weaker motor causing the car to be slower?

Yesterday, changed my oil, change one caliper on the front, replaced a bleeder screw on the other front caliper, and bleed the brakes. It feels odd to have my brakes working right again.

The trick is to get them balanced out. Shifting at the same time, and providing the right power at the right time. Not a easy task.

By the way, your post was the 1000th in this thread.

The longest thread was many years ago and had about 2000 posts. This one is well on it'* way to beating that.

I tried changing one ball joint on my Caddy today and FAILED badly. Couldn't get the nut off the top, broke 6 drill bits, and still didn't get the holes big enough. I ended up putting 3 bolts in and hope it holds.

I drove up to Washington island and back. 6 hours straight driving with a van full of kids. Ah ya, I need a beer, and I'm all out of Guinness.
