    Check out BNR turbos, he has a great reputation in the mazdaspeed world, 750.00 with a core ct26 for a 450hp set up (you supply supporting mods) and then he has a bigger turbo i think capable of more in the 750hp area... Probably going to try the smaller version out on mine for the first year on...

    Wheel Fitment & Question Thread

    I figured, would have gone 18, but there are more affordable choices for now in 17" r-comp tires, rules limit me to 255 or possibly 265, don't think i can do 275 without penalty. If she stays alive until a second build, we'll be upgrading suspension. Stock on koni's is essentially to feel the...

    Wheel Fitment & Question Thread

    Guys i have a question, I'm pretty sure they'll fit, but the links on the first page are so old they're broken now. 17 x 9 +35 with 255/40 all the way around, suspension is stock springs for the moment, on koni yellow (don't think there is any drop) will there be any issues with that set up?

    Replacement upper control arm balljoint covers?

    so it went pretty easy, small bit to get pilot started with the magnet scooping up shavings. 7/32 bit to cut full hole. Used some engine degreaser then brake clean to flush the old grease out. M6x1 tap to the hole, then ran the fitting in and pumped her full of grease.

    Replacement upper control arm balljoint covers?

    For the balls, i was thinking (let me know if my thinking is wrong) but i figured before i put the new boots on i would clean the balls out with a lot of brake clean and degreaser and then pump new grease, then clean all that out again. Hopefully getting all the shavings out before installing...

    Replacement upper control arm balljoint covers?

    Piratetip, recently spent some time watching a bunch of videos (now I'm a YouTube certified mechanic), i think I'm also going to tap the top of each joint and add a zerk fitting to make them serviceable.

    Front Lower Control Arm Bushing Removal Question.

    Got mine in, waiting on two replacement uca/ball joints and will have all the arms done, both sub frames done and both sway bars done. Theproblem I'm having is getting the two angled spherical bearing/bushings out of the rear hubs. Can't seem to get a good angle for the press to get them out.
