    After looking at Elon’s “tunnel”, this sure looks like a stock photo of an access tunnel from… somewhere. This doesn’t look large enough to put any kind of car ferrying trolley through it, especially with the conduits running along the wall.

    The supercharged 5.3L COPO engine (Chevy used to advertise it as a 327) has been around since the 5th Generation COPO. It used a different sytle of supercharger, but it’s not a first time for the combo.

    I don’t think the $6500 for a civic type R engine is a bad price if its fully dressed like the Hellcat offering with harness and PCM. I could see that being a great start for a dune-buggy or good for rebuilding an old 1984-91 CRX.

    Love the music in the background in todays episode. You should use it every day.

    The roof panel on my 2000 Lincoln LS was brazed at the C-pillar. I hope the technology has improved, as under the right conditions, the seam was visible.

  5. John McElroy Says:

    #4. Your Lincoln was probably brazed by hand, not by laser with a robot as Honda is doing with the Accord.

  6. SW Says:

    Lot of talk about the Honda laser braze, & how it cleaned up the roof line & looked really good, but no images from an angle that it could be illustrated.

  7. John Says:

    You seemed surprised about laser brazing like it’s some new technique…Volkswagen has been doing it for over a decade on their products.
