CorkSport Mazdaspeed Engine Cover

Have you upgraded your intercooler or are you thinking about it in the future? Let’s face it; when you remove the OEM intercooler cover and the TMIC from your engine bay, it leaves behind a rather utilitarian-looking motor with four exposed coil packs, a pile of wires, and sensors, which are not pleasing to the eye. We have the solution for your Mazdaspeed.

Our Newly Updated ECU Relocation Battery Box

Introducing, the newly updated CorkSport ECU Relocation Battery Box designed for the 2007-2013 Mazdaspeed 3. Protect your ECU, retain your OEM size battery, and provide clearance for up to a 3.5” intake!

Exploring new manufacturing processes allowed us more flexibility in the design of the updated CorkSport ECU Relocation Battery Box. The new box features a 3-part design vs the old box and lid design. The additional component is designed with you, the customer, in mind.

The OEM battery box has a removal front panel to allow easy access and removal of the battery. The previous CorkSport ECU Relocation Battery Box did not have this feature and many of you made it very clear that that was an issue. We listened! Check it out below:

Just like OEM, the front panel is now removable! This drastically improves the access to the battery and the ECU. If you have ever had to change the battery in your Speed then you know the significance of the removable front panel. Here it is in action:

The new manufacturing process improved more than just design, but also the construction and material used. The CorkSport ECU Relocation Battery Box is now made from black ABS that is durable and looks nearly OEM.

Avoid the hassle of an undersized battery and the rat’s nest that goes along with relocating the ECU with the CorkSport ECU Relocation Battery Box. Want to learn more? Check out the product page and order yours today!

Dear Car Guy: Things Only Car Guys Say

Dear Car Guy,

I was having a conversation the other day with some “Non-Car Guys” (NCGs) and a thought crossed my mind… that of course made me laugh out loud… because YES, I find myself hilarious.

I thought, “There are things Car Guys say that would be totally inappropriate for anyone else.”

Any Car Guy knows what I’m talking about. You probably come across a new one every time you talk to a NCG, but here are my top 8 things that could be misunderstood by the rest of the world, when a Car Guy says them:

1. When a Car Guy says he “needs meth”… it means something really different from the Breaking Bad kind.

Car Meth

2. When a Car Guy says, “I put my girl on a diet…” or “I’m cutting her weight down”… he’s not talking about his wife or girlfriend.

Weigh Station Problems

3. When a Car Guy says, “I need bigger rubbers…” He’s not ALWAYS referring to his manhood.

4. When a Car Guy says, “I like the weight of my knob…” Again, he is (most likely) not referring to his manhood.

5. When a Car Guy says, “I’m rich…” He’s definitely not talking about his bank account—because we all know he’s spent his money on car parts.

Spent too much on Mazda parts

6. When a Car Guy says, “I gutted my cats…” It is safe to assume that he’s not a maniac or animal abuser… but just in case: downpipe.

Loud Down Pipe

7. When a Car Guy says, “I’ve been running lean…” He is most likely, not referring to his workout regimen.

Car Parts Diet

8. The trickiest one of all… when a Car Guy says, “He’s putting a straight pipe in her…” it is likely he could be referring to BOTH his car and his lady.

Putting in That Straight Pipe

Until next time Car Guy, stay safe, stay fast, stay happy…

What New MX-5 Parts Do You Want to See?

With the new 2016 MX-5 due to arrive into our hands around the 21st of July, this brings up the question we’d like to ask our supporters: What new Miata parts would you like to see made?

New 2016 MX-5It is a little early to ask this question, since we don’t have the 2016 MX-5 in our garage yet, but it does give our engineers a head start to think about what you value and want—beyond what we already have planned.

The short answer: Big things.

The long answer: The short list of products, below.

  • Intake/Airbox Kit Exhaust System
  • Lowering/Sport Springs
  • Upgraded Sway Bars
  • Short Shifter

Also, we’ve received a few ideas in the past, including a seat lowering kit. In other words, we’d move the seat even lower in the chassis for tall people/helmet clearance on the top. Also, a tuner.

Really, we’re open to anything, so exercise your mind and we’ll see what we can do!

 

Cheers,

Derrick
