  • Your statement at ~ the 3:00 minute mark is incorrect. Carburetors were finally phased out around the mid-90’s. Not 80’s. I’m surprised no one’s caught that yet 😂😂

  • Don't forget to check your muffler bearings and catalytic cables whilst you're at changing the blinker fluid. Remember! You can only check your blinker fluid with a left hand screwdriver!

  • LCA's Lower Control Arms, RC Rigid Collars, IHCE Intake Header Cat Exhaust, MS MegaSquirted(ECU tuned) This is a list for every car modder should know, Asking a modder if he MS'ed the tune after IHCE swap makes sense, asking a nerd if he MS'ed his car after a air filter change is weird lol. VE's,(Volumetric Efficiency) IAT's,(Intake Air Temps') EGT's(Exhaust Gas Temps) MAP,(Manifold Absolute Pressure) Duty Cycle, Spark+Timing, Disti anyone? Distributor Caps etc :P To understand VE's... EGT's.. Camshaft Valve Overlap -->CVO aka "Exhaust Scavenging", PAP Plenum Absolute Pressure vs MAP Manifold Absolute Pressure or Blueprinting(that has nothing to do with making a blueprint of your engine) those terms require lot's of reading, testing and understanding fundamentals how it all works together and I wouldnt expect a noermal/nerd person that just buys gas to understand it. Nice video tho this is a real neat idea.

  • First video I watched of Donut Media was because of Nolan. Saw it while browsing and the way he combines engineering knowledge , jokes and car enthusiast material so well, means I enjoy his videos out of the Donut selection. Yeah, I don't give a sh1te about power and "these badges". Enough folk chat enough bull about that. But the LSD and Transmission stuff gets explain in a good simple way and encourages you to learn more. Thanks Nolan and Donut Media. 👍🚥
