  1. A little background story of the Model, in my own words: The first gen of the Kia Sorento was an old fashioned SUV, you know, front engine with rear Differential and some models got a powerful V6 engine that could compete with sports cars from its age; however that was during the late years of Kia being Kia, because since the Hyundai purchase, the true "Ford-Mazda-Kia" spirit that once the company had, faded to the much more crappy and commercial "Hyundai-Mitsubish¡t" Spirit, you know... ...So, this Second gen of the Kia Sorento is nothing else than a third gen of the Hyundai Santa Fe, but showing another interior, body and brand logo on it; sold thru other distribution; somehow looks like a different vehicle but mechanically both are the same, plattform, engines, transmissions, etc... Long story short: I had to deal with some of those; troubleshoot their weakest areas and improve them as much as I could, fixing the known problems and unknown ones, and transforming those onto much safer vehicles, under a low budget; yes that was possible, the solutions are easy and works flawlessly and, as usual; I wanted to share them here freely to you; as they could help many people to improve their Sorentos, and even their third gen Santa Fes, among other related models in certain subjects.
  2. Hey everyone! i am relatively new to the world of Subaru and with that being said i have a 93 legacy L Wagon that im looking to change up a little bit. i have read a lot of forums trying to get an answer for the question i am going to ask and have came up empty handed, so here we go! As an end result i am looking for a Still awd car that can get a little bit drifty with ease. so my thought is in welding the center and rear diff's i can have a full time 3 wheel drive car that i can get slideways in. so this is the topic up for debate. If i weld my center diff will it give me a 50/50 power ratio to front and rear of the car? or depending on the position of the diff can i get more power to the rear vs the front? Any thoughts or comments would be greatly apreciated! lets hash this out , because in theory it should work. -HansChampton
