Ok guys here comes the story. I used to be an admin of mazdaspeed 3 owners group on facebook. I am no longer, but that's a different story for another day. Well one of the members was asking about clutch and flywheel options. I told them that I just bought a Luk clutch kit off of amazon for $181 and a Fidanza Flywheel from Edge autosport for $335 all shipped for free and how this was the best deal. Well XTR nate is an admin at mazdaspeed owners group on facebook (confusing as fuck I know) and a few minutes later I received these PM's from him on facebook ... [Read More]

Corksport Brakes Pads - Mazdaspeed 3
May 11, 2013 - 4:17 PM - by Haltech

For anyone who has owned a Gen 1 or Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3 for any amount of time who enjoys spirited street driving will tell you, the stock brakes can fade quickly and give you an E ticket ride. Although our cars come OEM with top rate Ferodo compound, our floating single piston calipers do not properly apply pad pressure to the rotor. We also see a lot of fade when you push the car hard with increased braking.

Ferodos OEM compound is not as aggressive... [Read More]

JBR Motor Mounts
Mar 04, 2012 - 10:41 PM - by Sacrilicious
Introduction

James Barone Racing is a relatively new name to the Mazda aftermarket. Jamie has been making quality products for the Mazda market since September 2009. Today, we will be reviewing a full set of his 80a durometer motor mounts for the Mazdaspeed 3 (Gen 1 and Gen 2). Since there has already been a MSF review done on the CP-E mounts, this review will only have limited coverage of the installation process. In addition to the installation tutorial in the existing MSF review, very thorough instructions are available here at the JBR... [Read More]

Aficionauto drives Vin Diesel's fast and furious 1970 Dodge Charger
Sep 15, 2014 - 5:10 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Aftermarket, Classics, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Dodge, Celebrities, TV/Movies



The Aficionauto host Christopher Rutkowski has a real passion for original and replica cars from movies and television, whether they are from James Bond, Jurassic Park, or incredibly obscure Japanese shows. However, he might have outdone himself this time because he hopped into one of the biggest automotive stars of contemporary cinema. This 1970 Dodge Charger appeared in Fast & Furious and came back in Fast Five, where Paul Walker actually drove it. The menacing, black muscle car will make its return to the franchise in the seventh film, too.

The Fast and Furious Charger is a real beast no matter how you look at it. The interior is nothing more than two seats and a roll cage, and as the video shows, this thing vibrates constantly like a coiled mass of muscle ready to strike. The camera can barely stay in place most of the time. Also, Dom's Dodge is more than happy to do a smoky burnout and leave the driver partially deaf afterward from its wonderful, ear-splitting engine roar.

The Aficionauto also interviews the man who controls the keys to this beast. Bob Hartwig was once an F-15 pilot, but he also loved Hollywood vehicles. Now, he's a partner at Picture Car Warehouse, a company with about 850 cars that supplies vehicles to film studios. This Charger definitely seems to be Hartwig's favorite in the collection, as it should be.Continue reading Aficionauto drives Vin Diesel's fast and furious 1970 Dodge Charger

Review: 2015 Lincoln Navigator

We take the heavily refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator for a spin and find that there's plenty to like about the brand's truckish 'ute. Still, while it boasts a ton of room inside and stunning power from its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, it's far from perfect. Read our full review for all the details.




At least 19 deaths confirmed for GM compensation

Kenneth Feinberg, the man who has been put in charge of the fund General Motors is drawing from to offer compensation to victims of its faulty ignition switches, has said at least 19 deaths have so far been confirmed resulting from the heavily publicized failure and recalls, and there are many more claims still left to process.




Toyota teases C-HR crossover concept

Toyota has a big reveal slated for the rapidly approaching Paris Motor Show in the form of the C-HR crossover concept that you can see in silhouette to the right. We don't know much more, other than the fact that it will boast a hybrid powertrain and that it looks to be much more stylish than the brand's current crop of crossovers. Stay tuned.

Porsche offers detuned Boxster and Cayman 211 in Europe
Sep 15, 2014 - 4:30 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Convertible, Coupe, Performance, Europe, Porsche



Looking at a new Porsche Boxster? First of all, we commend you on your choice, because in its latest iteration, the Boxster has sped out from under the shadow of the 911 and into its own. But now to choose: do you get the base model with 265 horsepower, the Boxster S with 315 hp, or the top-of-the-line Boxster GTS with 330 hp? It's a daunting question, considering the $10k+ price gap between each model that you could put into the gas-and-rubber jar. Same goes for the Cayman, albeit with ten more horses across the board. But as if that's not confusing enough, there appears to be another player on the field. (That is, at least, in certain European markets.)

Appearing on the company's Belgian and Norwegian sites are the Boxster 211 and Cayman 211. As you might have guessed, they pack a less substantial 211 horsepower, undercutting what we know as the base models. Instead of using a smaller engine, though, the Boxster and Cayman 211 get the same 2.7-liter boxer six, just with less power.

As a result, they're a bit slower off the line: the Boxster 211 takes between 6.1 and 6.4 seconds to get to 62, depending on exact specifications, compared to the 5.5- to 5.8-second range for the 265-hp Boxster, while the Cayman 211 is quoted at 6.2 seconds versus the 275-hp Cayman's 5.4 to 5.7 seconds. Fuel consumption and emissions, on the other hand (and as you'd expect), are better in the 211. But while Porsche Norway charges around $10k less for the 211 models, Porsche Belgium charges the same for the 211 models as it does for the next most powerful versions (from which they appear to be visually indistinguishable).

We've sought confirmation from Porsche Cars North America, but given that the 211 models were likely created more to meet local government requirements than pure customer demand, we wouldn't expect these detuned versions to be offered Stateside anytime soon.Porsche offers detuned Boxster and Cayman 211 in Europe originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:01:00 EST.

Mercedes gives B-Class a facelift in time for Paris
Sep 15, 2014 - 3:50 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Minivan/Van, Paris Motor Show, Hatchback, Mercedes-Benz, Electric, Diesel, Luxury



Front-drive hatchbacks are the name of the game these days in the German automotive industry. In recent years BMW has gotten into the game with the 2 Series Active Tourer, while Audi has stepped up its game with the A1 and Mercedes has been keen to play, too. The Silver Arrow has rolled out the new A-Class and its sedan sister, the CLA, as well as the GLA crossover, and you can bet there'll be more to come. But Benz doesn't want you to forget about the B-Class, so it's introducing an updated version.

Mercedes first introduced the B-Class back in 2005, replacing it with the second-generation model in 2011. But with its newer stablemates garnering the lion's share of attention at the bottom of the Benz range, and increased competition from rival automakers, the B-Class has undergone some minor updates. Up front you'll find a reshaped bumper, grille and headlights, along with new taillights and bumper around back. There's also a revised interior designed to convey a more upscale environment, with color-changing ambient lighting and an eight-inch touchscreen display atop the dashboard. Of course, this being a Mercedes update, the new B-Class benefits from added safety systems as well.

Buyers in markets where the B-Class is sold will be able to choose between three new trim levels and a staggering array of four-cylinder engine options, with gasoline engines ranging in output from 122 to 211 horsepower, and diesels from 90 to 177 hp - some available with 4Matic all-wheel drive. There's also a natural gas version, and the B-Class Electric Drive - the only version offered Stateside - continues with the same output. Look for the new B-Class to make its live debut at the Paris Motor Show next month.Continue reading Mercedes gives B-Class a facelift in time for Paris

Audi Q7 plug-in hybrid spied, Porsche powertrain possible
Sep 15, 2014 - 3:10 PM - by Haltech
Filed under: Spy Photos, Hybrid, Crossover, Audi, Luxury



It's no secret that a new Audi Q7 is on the way. The replacement for the aging, three-row luxury CUV has already been spotted once, in December of 2013. Now, though, we have images of the second-generation model lapping Germany's Nürburgring Nordschleife, and it just happens to be showing a feature we reported on at the end of July - a plug-in-hybrid powertrain.

Given away by its high-voltage stickers on the window and a spare door to hide the charger - note how both the driver and passenger sides sport an access point - our spies snapped a series of photos, and put forth the compelling idea that the new Q7 would use the PHV system from the Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid.

If that's the case, that should mean at least 320 horsepower from a 3.0-liter, supercharged V6, while an electric motor chips in a further 95 ponies for a total system output of 416 hp.

As for when the first Q7 PHV could arrive, our spies claim that the new model will debut in 2015, with the Hybrid available from the start. As for when it will debut, the Geneva Motor Show is always a solid candidate, although the other big shows - Detroit, New York and Shanghai - remain possibilities. Basically, this debut is still up in the air. Should that change, though, we'll be sure to make sure you know.Audi Q7 plug-in hybrid spied, Porsche powertrain possible originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 15 Sep 2014 17:31:00 EST.
