Quick answer is no, you can't play online games with a silver membership, and... I don't know, have never bought anything there.

Not right now, since Financial Aid and Colorado is able to cover all the expenses. But if I don't have enough, then they would take some cash out to help pay.

No, you need an gold, cost depends on how much months you purchase. Like purchasing 12 months ($50 USD) is cheaper than purchasing 1 month ($8 USD).

About $10-$15. Some are cheaper and some costs more. I think Street Fighter 2 turbo HD remix is $15 IIRC.

Compression is the key to power.
Yea, I can't wait to see the days of 20:1 compression. SO much power of I-4s......

I agree. Rebuilding the 305 in my Camaro was easy as pie. When I look under the hood of my '03 Saab or my parents '01 Lincoln Town Car or our '99 Explorer, I haven't a clue what the hell I'm doing. A lot of it is because of the facia, but I just don't have experience with injected cars. I had to be really careful and leave myself notes when I had to pull my Saabs 2.3Turbo out. Had to replace the rear main seal that was leaking. Got it back together okay though. Lovin' the 35MPG .

I didn't read the article as I'm about to go to work, but that's what I'd make of a vehicle that runs on ethanol which practically evaporates without any heat input.

I just lumped all those posts together. I was just wondering if any of you have heard about running E85 on a carbureted engine. I was thinking of trying it on my Camaro, but I'm not sure. I don't want to if I have to have a kit. I thought I read somewhere you could just tweak the carb settings to get it to run, and that because it's ethanol, it actually gives a power boost. But I haven't a clue. I'm running 9.5:1 compression. Just all hearsay that I'm basing this on, but if someone knew, that'd be sweet.

From what I understand, E85 is pretty much crap in a normally aspirated engine. It will produce less power and less mileage than gasoline.

yep. They advertise a 10% loss, but really it works out to be more like 30%

Yeah, it's only good if you run high compression, or forced induction. You can tweak it to run though if you wanted. Not sure how though...
BTW, if the explorer is a V8, it has a 302 as well, but most likely it is the SOHC 4.0, which looks scary to me, lol.
