      That is awesome dude. I never considered in an IN-LINE air filter, that's awesome.

      That filter is fine, the 2.4i only pulls 165 CFM at 6500RPM if you account for stroke, RPM, and volumetric...

      1 - Wait it out longer - it will be there permanently. My record is a year and a half.

    10. Anyone local to Col Spgs or Denver want some free 300mm front rotors?

      Long story short, about to score some new 300mm rotors from Autozone, and I can't use them since mine are 320's. Basically a documentation mix up when I ordered them caused me to go home with some...

      The Mazda 5 looks like a Honda Fit. The Mazda 3 is a sedan like ours. They both use the same shocks and quickstruts in the fronts at least (2006 Models). I figured if it was able to be useful for...

      Can get Carbon Fiber interior trim pieces if you'd like - they're pricey but look really good.

      Or you can remove the interior trim and spray Plasti-Dip properly and it'll look good and be...

      Just replace the sensor. It snaps off and snaps back on, and doesn't require bleeding. If your master cylinder isn't giving you any issues with use, the sensor is the easier and cheaper and less time...

      I used 2006 Mazda 3/6 in my 2006 S40 for the fronts. I haven't messed with the rears yet.

      Curb weight between the Mazda 6 and the S40 AWD was only about 150lbs difference (Volvo heavier), however...

      So if you replaced the switch already - it probably means the connector is corroded. It's basically a dummy switch that when we enter the reverse gear, it trips that switch and turns on the rear...
