The hissing is no more than a cleverly created sound effect

Hello Good Sir, Thank you for your continuous tips and informative articles – commendable job. I was a bit disappointed that you or your editors decided to pick one J. Jesse’s rant as your main piece on October 25, 2017. Now, as a fan of this column, whose title is Car Clinic, not Baraza for president (we don’t have to like you, we are here to learn), I believe you are not in the business of proving yourself. That was really prime real estate and it went to clap back at a small-minded man who drives a Lexus, and a hybrid at that! I mean... what? Come on Baraza, know your worth! Away from that, I know a few weeks earlier you had written about the 7L Toyota Shark’s freno (why is it called that?)  sounds and mentioned  it being a DPF customisation by our local mechanics. I couldn’t trace the article so I kindly request  you to revisit that topic with all the technical terminology and engineering jargon. Please give a  detailed explanation because  I’d like to know how it all works. How the brakes or release of the same results in that “fooosh” sound. In traffic, I always hear this sound and wonder, what is that? Everyone I ask claims it’s the freno (?)  but the KD engine has no air brake system so what’s that? How do they mate the brakes to the DPF? What’s the catch? I know most of these engines don’t last since most  matatus have gone back to the trusty but underpowered 3L/5L. Otherwise, keep up the good work. I’d like to see more content and fewer  pictures. We all know what a Lamborghini and an Audi A4 look like and in any case we don’t need pictures that are bigger than the article itself. Too much real estate going to waste. Is there a forum affiliated to you where we can quench our thirst? I’m planning on a certain build, a sleeper wagon: A 2JZ engine into a Vista Ardeo or the Outback but mostly the Vista. Strange I know, but that’s where sleeper comes from. Would do the Outback but it would be easier to fit a big turbo EZ36 and the engineer in me wants a challenge. Besides, no one expects a Vista to pop antilag or make boy noises, or light up the rear end, or effortlessly pass them. See where I’m going with this? Sleeper! Will let you have fun in it once it’s done. Runyora N    Hi Runyora, Once in a while it is important to clarify one’s stand on certain matters to prevent future misunderstanding; that is why I responded. None of my readers is beneath notice, no matter how caustic their observation and/or feedback might be. I was not proving myself – seven-and-a-half years in the business is proof enough; I was merely laying down the law as it occasionally behooves me to. I know my worth. Can we stop with the erroneous “7L” tag ...
