MX-5 Supercharger System

The Cosworth bolt-on Supercharger system for the '06-08 Mazda MX-5 features a state-of-the-art fourth-generation Eaton MP62 rotating group housed in an integral inlet manifold. It was designed as a compact, flexible supercharger system for increased power with original equipment quietness and reliability without adversely affecting fuel economy. The all-inclusive, bolt-on system features an efficient air-to-water intercooler, upgraded fuel system and complete installation hardware.

350Z Tuner Twin-Turbo Kit

GReddy recently released the long-awaited Tuner twin-turbo kit for the '03-07 Nissan 350Zs with either the VQ35HR or VQ35DE engine. These Stage 2 turbo kits feature the main ingredients for big horsepower-larger turbochargers, intercoolers and racing downpipes. But GReddy also keeps costs down by leaving fuel upgrades up to the individual tuner, so depending on how extreme they want to go, the tuner has more options for tuning. These Tuner kits retain GReddy's exceptional fitment, construction and quality, while supplying trick pieces like external wastegate dump-pipes and a high-capacity cast oil pan for the HR-350Z twin TD06-20G kit.

S2000 Dry Kevlar Cooling Plate

A stock engine bay is lame. Your S2000 deserves better, and the best way to treat it right is to dress it up with this kick-ass radiator cover. Unlike the other covers out there, Password:JDM's is super light, often more than twice as light as a clearcoated carbon cover.

Forza Hybrid Wiper

Using the word "reinvent" is risky business, as true reinventions are rare. But PIAA introduced a dramatically new windshield wiper blade-the PIAA Forza Hybrid-that features the industry's first side-spring frame design, providing optimum contact pressure across the length of the blade. The result? Wiping performance that easily surpasses that of conventional wipers, delivering superior visibility and smooth, chatter-free operation.
