'09 Honda Fit Intake System

K&N has designed a high-flow intake system for the '09 Honda Fit 1.5-liter that's guaranteed to increase horsepower. K&N dynamometer tests show the 1.5-liter engine gained 4.53 hpat 6000 rpm over the stock intake configuration. The new system draws air through a K&N high-flow air filter that increases airflow and never needs to be replaced.

SR20DET Starter

Mishimoto SR20DET replacement starters are made specifically for the Nissan S13/S14. A common problem with the factory starters is that they often go bad and need replacing. It's extremely difficult to find this replacement part and even harder to find brand-new OEM replacements. Mishimoto knows exactly what drivers are looking for, which is why the company has developed brand-new OEM SR20DET replacement starters.

The Tomei main studs are designed to cope with the torsional oscillation of the crankshaft during high engine speeds and loads and locking the crankcase firmly together to guarantee main bearings clearances.
