    precisely :p Wikipedia states: It has become the primary fuel delivery system used in automotive engines, having replaced carburetors during the 1980s and 1990s. Now to me, 1989 fits in that bracket.

    Diesels had it as standard since the 20's. "Gasoline" injection has been traced back to 1902. Some ww2 petrol engines did use fuel injection, particularly germany who also designed engines for japan and were already using direct injection, late war rolls royce merlins were fitted with what they called a pressure carberuttor which was just an alternate name for fuel injection (single point).
    Electrical injection on petrol cars was done in the 40's too (test cars that is, not production vehicles, had to wait for 1958 for that, officially the rambler rebel had it in 1957 but it was an option part which ultimately only got fitted to pre production vehicles not full production).

    By 89, it was old school brah.

    1968 VW Beetle. It is dirty at the moment, and yes, I know that the distributor is in backwards. Around 120 snappy German horses.

    Looks nice, I'm not a huge Honda guy but I've got to admit those little VTEC engines are pretty easy and fun to work on.

    Thanks :) Yea, they're somewhat easy. Would still like a B series or K series though. That's when it gets fast :) But a D16Z6 isn't the slowest thing out there. 125hp on 950ish KG

    Here it is from another angle. To be honest, my prep work for this could be better, but I might just redo this at some point, have to put in new gaskets anyways.
    Not sure if you notice the vtec solly, but it's also painted in the same gold color. I plan on painting some different parts such as a few hardlines and maybe the fuel rail in the same color to make it like a signature scheme.

    Literally more portraiture done on this car than the Queen and yet, this is the most complete picture I took of the engine bay. /sigh

    This is the bulletproof 2.6L 12v V6 carried over from the Audi 80. Peak power and torque is 148hp and 225Nm, apparently. I reckon those numbers are an order of magnitude off. :D

    That is normal with the newer cars, unfortunately. Mine doesn't look any better. It's all covered up behind some plastic. Why? No clue.

    That's a 20 year old Audi ;)

    Carby cleaner works wonders on the stubborn gunk that accumulates on the intake manifold though!

    Just installed a V8. Much smaller than you see in other pictures, but still makes power without a doubt.

    Here is my dd, an all original 1970 Pontiac Lemans with 58k original miles on the clock
    20140807_064655.jpg
    The stock 350 (5.7L) cranking out 256hp and 350+ ft/lb torque with the original 2bbl carb (soon to be changed to a 4bbl)
    20140807_064704.jpg
    And yes, the A/C still works with no leakage!
    A little dusty, but I might take care of that today :p

    I got his car from a guy off of Craigslist for $3500, practically stole it from him.
