Hotchkis Swaybars for Infiniti G35X

28 Dec

Hotchkis Swaybars Infiniti G35X

G35X owners used to feel left out in the cold when it came to mods. Sure, they had the AWD that their standard G35 cousins didn’t have, but it seemed the aftermarket forgot that these guys like to mod their car too. Times are a changing. Now Hotchkis has released their G35X specific swaybar kit.

Specs
• Lightweight, Durable 1 3/8” (35mm) Tubular Front Bar.
• Lightweight, Durable 15/16” (24mm) Tubular Rear Bar 3 Way Adjustable.
• Premium mounting hardware including, greasable polyurethane bushings and heavy duty brackets.
• Finished in durable red powder coat.

DeatschWerks 65c Compact Fuel Pump

If you own a 08-12 WRX/STI, 08-11 EVO X, 05-09 LGT, 02-06 RSX, 08-12 GTR, 01-11 Civic, 07-12 Speed 3, 06-07 Speed 6, and 04-06 GTO, you know that finding a true drop in replacement fuel pump was a bit difficult. Often it involved taking an existing universal pump, and modifying your housing, or buying a new housing, just to make something workable. Thankfully, those days are gone!

DeatschWerks has now announced a special compact pump just for these applications! These pumps flow 265lph, and are fully E85 compatible as well, with a 3 year warranty, making them a no brainer choice!

Sighting: Kia Optima Turbo

20 Dec

Yea, I never thought I’d consider buying a Kia either.  However, with a 274hp turbocharged direct-injected motor that produces 269 lb-ft of torque from 1750-4500 rpm, I’m certainly interested.

I know the new Optima has been around for a while, but this is my first encounter up close.

Is it a real competitor to Honda and Toyota?  In recent years, the Koreans have made more interesting products and it’s translated into better sales.  This Optima is certainly better looking than the now-boring Camry/Accord V6…but will it be as reliable as the Japanese cars?  Time will tell.

Would you consider buying one?

Evo Wheel Bearing Kit

19 Dec

Had a couple people asking about this over the weekend via email as well as pm, so figured we would get them posted up.

Can’t seem to get rid of that wobble? Steering wheel shaking despite the wheels being balanced properly? Feel a shimmy in the rear of the car and can’t track it down? Evo wheel bearings are notorious for going bad, particularly when you start to run the wide, low offset wheels and/or do lot’s of track/rally cross use. These direct replacement bearings carry a 1 year, unlimited mileage warranty (exclusive of shipping) and are sold as front or rear, or as sets or pairs. They come installed in new hubs and have new wheel studs included as well.

We highly suggest replacing them as pairs, as once one side goes, the other side is surely close behind.

Free shipping when the full front and rear set are purchase

Used Car Find – A Silver Bullet

15 Dec

I have wanted a 300ZX Twin Turbo since it was first released. I was 11 years old and already a Z-car fan as it’s history is legendary.   While I still coveted the 70’s and 80’s Z’s, the 1990  Twin Turbo sold me at first glance.  It was so modern, and packed with so much technology…Nissan had obviously been looking towards the future rather than focusing on the strong Z-heritage.

The 1990 300ZX Twin Turbo  started a revolution.  The new design made previous iterations look ancient and it’s twin turbochargers and super HICAS four-wheel steering were new technologies.  In my opinion, this was also the car that brewed a kind of war between Japanese car companies.  The Z32 Twin Turbo set the bar that Mazda, Toyota and Mitsubishi were forced to compete with in their own versions of Twin-Turbo supercars.

Today, the Z32 is still beautiful.  I’ve always loved the fighter-cockpit feel of the switches surrounding the guage cluster…and that weird gray carpet around the dash.

This particular 1990 has only covered 28K miles in the last 21 years and unlike many Z32’s these days, it’s unmolested.  This is 100% original Nissan.  OK, so it’s an automatic…but so what.  This would make a great car to cruise around in, T-Tops and all.

Good luck to North Jersey Auto Mall – I hope this Z finds a good owner.  If it’s one of our readers then I demand a ride!
