Most Jalopnik podcast ever?

Chris Hayes published on

No it's not. However we do have Andrew Collins (@andr3wcollins) and Freddy "Tavarish" Hernandez (@APiDAOnline) -both of Jalopnik- in the studio this week after their Easter Jeep Safari adventure. We cover the 2016 Wrangler Willys Wheeler they used in Moab, enduro cross, Matt compares the Honda Pilot and the Acura MDX, reminiscing of cheap Vegas adventures happens, Peking to Paris is explored and finally Freddy gives Zack advice on modifying used E36s and IS300s and the pitfalls that ensues.

    @81:00 The 2JZ is an interference motor.

    True, if it's in an IS300 - looks like it's non-interference if it's non-VVT-I

    I pulled this page from the IS300 service manual. I love Tavarish's writing, but he's sometimes wrong about the little things.

    Is it a Gawker question if the answer is no?
