comment How to increase horsepower?
Yes. We're happy to discuss really open ended topics like this in the chat. In the Q&A section, we're trying to pose questions that have a real answer. For example, if you were asking "Should I run 10+ PSI of boost on a 10:1 compression ratio engine?", we would say "probably not without doing a lot of extra work."

comment How to increase horsepower?
Without more specifics, this question is close to unanswerable. Some "bolt-ons" will destroy one engine while another will be much happier. The only trick to increasing the power to weight ratio that works for every car is to remove weight in the driver's seat.

FYI the dents don't appear to be in the gas tank. That may confuse the OP.

You might want to tell the class what this "device" is called.

comment Cheap vs Expensive Fuels
This question and the commentary associated with it are edging very close to opinion-based and / or shopping advice. I'm not seeing enough hard data to make it sound like this question is answerable as written. More specificity is required, at a minimum.

comment Can I buy a used car to learn auto repair & DIY?
Indeed. There are many low risk modifications and tasks you can learn to perform on your current vehicle. Oil changes are a good start: you end up under the car looking at many important moving parts. The chat is also a great place to ask "is this a good idea?" before you dig too deep a hole. ;-)

I don't see a spot where you say something to the effect that sometimes oil shock leak. When I swapped out two of the old Outback shocks back in the day, all the oil was basically on the outside of the tubes. I could compress them with one finger!
