Has anyone built a heat exchanger that uses the tailpipe gases to heat water for a shower?
I'm considering the tailpipe instead of tapping in the engine bay so htat the same heat exchanger can be moved to a power generator instead of the vehicle.
Any experience/advice with this is welcome.
You saved some money on the mat but those metal screws are going to shred your tires, and I bet they're at least $200 a pop.

I hear good things about Sumosprings. They are extended polyurethane bump stops. The nice thing about poyurethane is taht it acts as both a spring and a shock absorber.
While adding a steel leaf makes the spring pack stronger, it creates an imbalance and the shocks become unmatched to the...
