Wheelin’ And Dealin’
SSR adds yet another wheel to its already stacked lineup with the Professor MS3. Comprised of SSR’s ultra high-quality HTM (Heat Treatment Manufacture) process, the new wheel features a true three-piece construction. That means the outer rim is precision welded to the inner rim, then securely bolted to the center disk. Available in 16–17-inch versions with a reverse lip, or 18–20-inch versions with a stepped lip, colors include silver, Titan silver, and flat black. Log on to SSR’s website and you’re sure to find something that will take your Honda to the next level.

Quik-Latch Products has released a truly secure system to tie down body panels without the use of any tools. Its new Mini-latch is a multi-purpose push-button fastener, slightly larger than a quarter, that’s able to withstand a pulling force of 200 pounds! The latches give you the freedom to use nothing more than your hands to remove a bumper, hood, or any other panel in just seconds. Produced in T6 aluminum and stainless steel, these latches have already been approved by the NHRA for use in competitive drag racing. Available in billet aluminum, polished, or black anodized, the Mini-latch system is for sale now, so quit relying on those cheap chain-store hood pins or those silly rubber band and button tie-downs that are more of an eyesore than a help. Save yourself the headaches while adding peace of mind as you’re tearing up the tarmac.

If You Want The Power, You Need The Brains…
You knew it was only a matter of time before the masterminds at Hondata would crack the CR-Z ECU. Finally, a tuning solution is now available for Honda’s sporty hybrid. The new FlashPro unit plugs directly into the OBD-II diagnostic port and gives the user the ability to fine-tune important factors like air-fuel ratios, knock levels, and even extract more miles per gallon from the 1.5L.

Whether you’re naturally aspirated or relying on forced induction with your CR-Z or TSX, Hondata’s FlashPro is the key to proper tuning.

May I Have Your Tension?
Kaizenspeed/KS Tuned has stepped up to offer H22 users an outstanding alternative to the annoying H23 manual tensioner conversion. As it is well documented, most know that the H22’s factory “auto-tensioner” is prone to failure, resulting in bent valves at the very least. While some go through the hassle of converting to the H23’s manual tensioner, the process is tedious and, thanks to Kaizenspeed, completely unnecessary. Their tensioner allows you to simply remove two bolts, and replace your failed tensioner with this gorgeous CNC-machined, billet-aluminum unit complete with a hardened tension rod and jam nut. A custom adjustment wrench, included with every order, makes for an easy, five-minute installation during a timing belt change. High quality, affordable, and easy to install—three things that should have you H22 owners on Kaizenspeed’s website ordering before they’re all gone!
