Road Maintenance is not something you would only see in a movie. Seeing a truck with a plow is a thing. See, after landing an agreement with the district you may be involved in road maintenance. Sure, the work is seasonal and in areas with a lot of snow, however, before starting, some investments have to be made.
Used engines from Hayabusas go for about $3000, or about $1000 less than what you can get an entire bike for. Like the LQ4 from earlier your best bet is to buy the entire thing if you can, that way you have everything you need for the swap into…
Well, that, of course, depends on the number of drives you will make. Regardless, be ready for some “hidden” costs too. As some researchers suggest, ridesharing drivers should calculate in:
The 2019 Buick Regal Sportback doesn’t only bring new styling to the table. The new car is also larger and up to 500 pounds lighter than the fifth-generation models. It’s powered by a sporty 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which makes 250 horsepower. It also develops 260 lb-ft or 295 lb-ft of torque if equipped with front- or all-wheel drive respectively. The former is fitted with a 9-speed automatic transmission while the latter comes with an 8-speed auto.
That said, the Grand National is one of the best factory sleepers ever made and you should be able to find one of these crazy cheap cars for around $20k, even though the average asking price seems to be MUCH higher.
If you’re in the market for a new muscle car, chances are you’re looking to spend anywhere between $30,000 and $45,000, or even as much as $60k, depending on options and trims. Instead of looking for a new vehicle though, you may be better served looking to the past instead.
Pontiac switched to the three-speed TH-400 equipped with a Hurst Performance dual-gate shifter. This shifter was dubbed a his/hers because it could be shifted automatically in Drive or could be used as a manual clutchless shifter. Basically, it was an early version of the modern Sport selection in some cars.
The FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser is among the most iconic vintage off-roaders in automotive history. It was extremely popular around the world and even made a big splash stateside. While this vehicle is not necessarily cheap, it really is a steal for what you’re getting.
There’s nothing wrong with pulling used engines from Ferraris, except the price. With an F136 you get a 4.5-liter 570-horsepower V8 mill that’s won International Engine of the Year eight times, and it’s wildly dependable as long as it’s maintained.
This engine is so big they literally had to remove part of the windshield for it to fit. The engineering is insane all-around, and while we don’t have time to get into the details here, we have before and so have Speedhunters, so go check out all the work that went into this beast. There you have it, some of the best used engines you can buy today. Did we miss something near and dear to your heart? Let us know!
Apart from offering a great amount of cargo space and good fuel economy figures, the 2019 Hyundai Elantra might just offer the first all-electric version of the compact car. A zero-noise and zero-emission Elantra has apparently already been caught testing, although in a more popular sedan form. It’ll almost certainly share all of its electric components with the Ioniq and Kona EVs, which promise between 200 and 250 miles of range. Whether the hatchback Elantra GT is going to receive this all-electric powertrain like the sedan apparently will is still open for a debate. Furthermore, the electric Elantra might not even make it to the U.S. market. Regardless, the possibility itself is rather intriguing.
Later 240sx models used engines of the KA24DE derivative which had double overhead cams and four valves per cylinder, as opposed to the KA24E’s three-valve SOHC setup. This resulted in higher power, torque, and redline figures. As far as used engines go, either one is a reliable starting point for your next swap.
It’s available in two trims, each with its own focuses and perks. The conventional Elantra GT comes with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine delivering 161 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. The Hyundai Elantra GT Sport, on the other hand, sports a 1.6L turbo four mill capable of producing 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Both are standard with a 6-speed manual, but offer an optional automatic as well. The former can be ordered with a 6-speed unit while the latter comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch.
Under “Truck Driving Jobs” entry I could have entered ten separate options tanker hauls, oversized hauls, ice road trucking driving jobs (it’s not just a reality show), OTR jobs, and the like. However, I will try to sum it up all in one entry. See, depending on work experience, licenses you’ve acquired and driving history, you may actually have a number of options regarding truck driving jobs some pay better than others.
