    Hello everyone, after doing an oil change today on my coupe after getting it out of storage I noticed that when the sun hit the oil pan I could see very small brass coloured metallic fragments. I checked with a magnet and they are non-magnetic How concerned should I be? I’m just hoping that it...

    I bought my genny with full, clean oil on the dipstick. 3 weeks after that I checked it again, and the same was true, full and clean. 2 weeks later, I got some really bad rod knock and checked the dipstick, and there was no oil on it whatsoever. No signs of leaking or burning at all, and the oil...

    I just recently got a 2013 3.8 and am looking into getting the Stillen exhaust system but I'm also thinking of putting the ark downpipe/test pipe with it. Anyone in the Atlanta area have any issues passing emissions with this type of set up?

    Hello, for those of you who have had your manifolds ported by 3.8performance, did you ship your riser out with your manifolds, or is the riser already ported to the correct size? If someone could let me know, I'd appreciate it greatly! I sent an email out to 3.8performance but I haven't received...

    Went for a drive from Fort Lauderdale to Jupiter and back. When I came back home I smelled something burning from the car thinking it was my rear brake pads, but when I looked under my car saw oil residue on my tail pipe and smell the burning scent strong. I think there is a hose leak into the...

    I'm mainly needing to know if there is any fix to this issue or if i'll need to replace the transmission. So I bought the car as a bit of a fixer upper. I replaced the master cylinder, clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder and a few more things but those are the big ones I fixed regarding the...

    I have recently had a problem where my car is stuck in 3rd gear while in drive, it will not shift at all out of third gear. I recently scanned the code P0700 (Transmission Control System (MIL Request)) I'm looking to see if anyone else has had this same problem and what it could be.

    Hello everyone, im looking to see if anyone has come across a problem with the Ark straight test pipes for the 3.8 GDI. I just got mine installed over the weekend and while im driving it it sounds as if two pieces of metal are vibrating on eachother after i put them on. Nothing is making contact...

    I’m looking at stroking and boosting my 3.8, and doing full exhaust. Are there any issues I should look out for while attempting to get higher HP/Torque values? Already looking into building the trans, should I worry about other drivetrain components?

I wanted to start with cheapest fix on the list which was changing the oil, alright cool that’s that. I change my oil and start her up a little bit...

    Recently installed an Isr Race catback which is basically a straight pipe aside from the "bottle resonator" in the system. This makes me wonder if i will have lost any power because of it? i love the sound of it but if the cons outweigh the pros ill be putting the stock exhaust back on. Any...

    Hi, I have a 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 with the 8-Speed automatic and I am getting a whining noise that I believe is coming from the trans. It only does it in Manual mode and only after I have been driving for a while. I will include a video of the sound. Any help is greatly appreciated...

    Hey guys, I have a 2016 3.8 R-Spec M/T and I'm planning on doing a muffler delete. I've read a lot of the discussions on here saying that it is often too loud with too much drone. While I still want it done, to combat the drone, I plan on adding a resonator after the muffler delete (adding it...

    I have a 2010 grand touring gen coupe. I took the Brembo’s off of a totaled 2010 track coupe. I took the calipers, the brake lines, and the rotors because I read the rotors for the brembos are slightly bigger. They worked perfectly fine for a few weeks and then the brakes started to rub on the...
