most of imgur's changes were annoying. the worst for me is how they decided to change the way the user views and uses albums. They petty  much removed the ability to view albums like directories - all the pics are piled into a big mess until you specify which album to view from a drop-down menu.
I upload a lot of screenshots for beta-testing & their new system makes it hard to keep it organized.

It was too convenient, so now they have to fuk it all up to run off users and reduce overhead. The next step is to stop allowing direct links.
It's Photobucket all over again.

Good to hear.
Update in three months after the honeymoon is over and see if you have the same sentiment.

if you have to chew your beer, you should consider changing labels.

Even if you donīt find the right one, you should find one that fits. Here most faucet knobs share the same bore. or take it from another faucet you dont use!
Well he's a Brit, so he can take it off his bathroom faucet, since he doesn't brush his teeth.  ^_^

Fill the inside of the knob with epoxy resin and stick it back on before you go to work.
Should be good for your pre-work shower the next morning.

Just don't use it to drive nails afterwards, or you'll eventually crack the resin and it'll fall off again.

or call a local small plumber. They usually have extra parts laying around that they'd probably sell you for a pound or two.

Used to have a '96 pontiac sunfire 2.4L 5-spd. Nice little car. Not as good as what you have, but it was decent. It was chipped to go no more than 125 mp/h (200km/h). Once I hit the top end it would do a wave of surging then lacking of power.
The fuel and coils were electronically controlled, so I had no real way to mechanically bypass them.

What you need is something like this to override the ecu:
(i don't know if this one fits your model, it's only an example)

I have my doubts about those aftermarket filters though, they accelerate wear but worse than that they take air from the engine compartment, which is hot and expanded.
After-market filters don't really filter much of anything smaller than 1/2 of a 1cm sq. That means the engine gets a lot of particles in the combustion chamber and over time it erodes the cylinder walls.
It's why several of them require filter oil. They hope to catch things via the fly-paper method. But oiling the filter kinda defeats the purpose of having a high-flow filter in the first place.
Just get an after-market airbox that pulls its fresh air from the front grill. The faster you go, the more air gets rammed into the intake.

I don't know what you can do about chipping if they aren't easily obtained. The car is possibly governed not to go over 200kmph, no matter what you do to it.

I have been tempted to try some mods on it
It gets to be expensive. Especially if there aren't that many of those vehicles in your region.
Doubly so if it requires special tools.

You can do small stuff though, like rebuild your carburetor and see if you can get better fuel jets. Replace the stock head gasket with a performance gasket for a little higher compression. Retard the timing a little. Etc.

Mine is a built-in-france Peugeot 405 STI 1998, 2 litter, 8 valves, mpi, the luxuriest version of the model. It´s almost a classic here because the Peugeot 405 was very popular but in its national, simpler, version. So mine is a an unique model (The 16 valves version is definetely a classic).

I got the hand to do it all by my own. with the help of internet and some new tools investment i have been having lot of joy learning and working on it. Wish I had the time to rebuild the engine all by my own.
Nice find.
You should put a turbo on that thing and see what it'll really do. Update your life insurance policy.

I enjoyed working on cars as well. It's why I went to school to be an auto-tech. Then the military tried to kill me and I've been too damaged to do the job since.

Rebuilding engines, transmissions, and differentials is a lot easier than most people think. It only becomes difficult when you start machining parts to specific tolerances. Being good with math at knowing areas, diameters, and volumes helps.

People are becoming more and more isolated inside their little bubble. Social media is a dopamine hit, and it's addictive.
I took  my son to get a haircut the other day and everyone in the sitting room, from small children to senior citizens, were sitting there with their faces buried in their mobile devices. I was the only one looking around.

As for your driving experience, doing that in a street car on a public road is hella-fun. That's the kind of rush I enjoy.
It's been quite some time since I've done anything like that. I think it was back in the mid-90s when I was stationed in Germany and I had a 1980 Z-28 camaro. I took it out on the autobauhn; really had no idea how fast I was going because I had the speedometer pegged at 120mph, but I was flying by everyone.

Lately? People have been saying this since 2003 at least :P
True, but it really seems to be spiraling out of control with new levels of money-grabs, releasing partial games with promised updates at a later date,  and cheap copy-paste development & production short-cuts.

The market is over-saturated and companies are expected to crank out new releases every year, while keeping the prices down and stagnating progress.

Just my opinion.

May not be true, but lately it seems the art of story-telling, user interface, and logical progression, take a back seat to lazy eye-candy.
The obvious money-grabs by AAA publishers doesn't help any. Indie games seem to be the way to go any more.

You kids get off my lawn
