I have been making weekly videos for a few of my YouTube channels and I can not keep up with the editing using my old PC.
When I was editing footage from my DSLR camera, I would hit play to preview what changes I made and the audio would play but the video would not. At this point I knew I needed a new PC!
My Editing PC is an old 2 core AMD Phenom II x2 3.4Ghz which I UNLOCKED TO 4 core. I then overclocked from 3.4Ghz to 3.6Ghz! But this was with a very old Video card (AMD Radeon HD 5450 -1gb ddr3) and slow 800Mhz ram.
Here comes the 8 core AMD RYZEN to the Rescue!

I started using a piece of cardboard between my battery and the intake a few years ago, and it seemed to gave me about a 2 miles per gallon increase. (Though after building this, I received criticism that this will not help with gas mileage, but will help with performance!)
Now it was time for me to relocate my battery so now I have to make a Hot air block from scratch.
I made this one from metal, and I expect better performance than my cardboard version.
This is the finished hot air block and my new battery box

I was using the stock battery mount location, with a normal tie down, but it kept having issues and getting loose.
So then bought a replacement tie down, but that also came loose.
I wanted to relocate the battery to the trunk, but I have way too many wires added in over time (inverter, fuel pump, 2x amps, and more). So I decided to relocate to about the same area under the hood, but lower and out of the way.

I have a b16 SIR2 that came with a y21 LSD transmission, but the case leaked and I replaced it with a more common s80 about 2 years ago when I rebuilt it.
I added carbon lined synchros, new bearings, new rubber, new gaskets, measured and replaced as need, full rebuild.
I was driving on the freeway about a year ago and a piece of plate steel was pulled up by the wind, and busted a hole in my s80 transmission case.
This is an article about how I got a replacement housing from the junk yard.
