Hustle and Flow for your Subaru

5 Nov

Invidia’s new Q300 for the 2011 + WRX and STi is here, and is a great option for those who love the quad tips, but also don’t feel like getting a divorce just yet because their wife can’t stand the noise.

These tuned exhaust systems feature uniquely shaped resonators and baffles to maximize flow, and minimize drone and overall noise. The net result is a system that sounds great, flows great, and leaves nothing on the table. It’s offered with your choice of quad burnt edge titanium tips, or quad stainless tips

For a limited time, when you purchase the Turbo Back Combo (with your choice of downpipe), we’ll give you a FREE Downpipe Gasket (can’t have leaks on a new car!) and a FREE set of Urethane Exhaust Hangers (set of 4)

Stop Leaks

23 Oct

The ‘classic’ shape Impreza, those 93-01 cars that started the global Subaru craze, are great cars that are affordable, and easy to mod. But let’s face it, they are still old cars. They’ve sometimes lived hard lives and every now and then, need maintenance. In our continuing effort to help keep these awesome cars alive, we’re happy to now offer our latest Master Gasket Kit – the Valvecover Master Gasket Kit.

Take the guesswork out of doing new gaskets with our master kit. As the RS’s have aged, the valvecover gaskets are notorious for developing leaks, and that makes for a messy engine bay, loss of oil, and general inefficiency.

These are the OEM gaskets, by the manufacturer who makes them for Subaru – just much less expensive. Go ahead, call your dealer, and price out all the components we include and see for yourself!

These kits are VERY year specific, as valvecovers differ. Please use the guide below to decide which kit is correct, or if you have a question, give us a call, as kits are not returnable.

For the DOHC cars, kit includes both valvecover gaskets (left and right), spark plug well gaskets, all the valvecover grommet bolt seals, and the 1/2 moon seals. These are very production date specific as Subaru used different valvecovers during their production run.

If you have a DOHC 2.5 liter Impreza/Legacy, how do you ensure you order the right kit? You can verify it 1 of 2 ways. Via the engine production #, or via production date. Production date is the easiest, as the date (month/year) can be found in a tag in the driver side door. Please write the production date (month/year) in the comments section when ordering.

2.2 Liter DOHC Kits include both valve cover gaskets (left and right), and the valvecover sealing washers. Optionally, we also offer the kit with the spark plug seals as well as noted below.

For the 1999 + SOHC cars, your kit will include both valvecover gaskets (left and right) and the valvecover sealing washers. Optionally, we also offer the kit with the spark plug seals as well as cam seals as noted below. Fits 2.2 and 2.5 liter SOHC cars.

Picture shown is a general picture for illustrative purposes, but contents will be as described above for the specified year car

Why Your Oxygen Sensor Shouldn’t Be Ignored

9 Oct

If you’ve noticed your car performing inconsisently, can’t pass inspection due to poor emissions performance, with poor fuel economy, or running like a raped ape somedays, and like a 3 legged dog on others, it could be a faulty oxygen sensor. The 02 sensor is partially responsible for telling the ecu what to do and when. When they are new, 02 sensors relay accurate info very quickly to the ecu. When they age, or get contaminated, they act lazy, slowly relaying info, and performance and economy suffer as a result. We offer a full range of direct replacement 02 sensors from Bosch and Denso, 2 of the largest OEM suppliers in the automotive world. In fact Bosch invented the 02 sensor! These are plug and play, not some cheesy universal joint you’ve got to spend timing soldering in. Waterproof connections ensure years of reliable service. No sense paying the dealer more for the same part in a different box!

So why is it important to replace? As the sensors age, they get contaminated. Remember, these sensors sit right in the catalytic converter and the exhaust pipes, so they are forced to live in a dirty, nasty environment. As time goes on, contaminents build on the sensor itself, and it’s no longer able to react with the speed that modern ecu’s demand. These contaminants also can cause false readings to the ecu, causing the car to run significantly richer, or leaner, than it should. This can have systemic results in other areas of the car. Not only will you get poor performance and poor fuel economy, overly rich conditions can clog cats and cause injectors to stick open. Overly lean conditions can wreak havoc on your internals causing knock, as well as potential piston damage.

If you run race gas, methanol or alcohol injection, this can also cause premature 02 sensor failure. Thankfully, these sensors are affordable, and very easy to replace yourself

Carbon Synchro Kit for 2004-2006 STi

27 May

The GD series STi 6 speed transmission was a god-send vs the previous 5 speed. But, Subaru still left room for improvement. In mid 2006,they changed the synchro design to a carbon based one, which offers significantly increased strength vs the earlier versions. These deal with heat much better, making it a great upgrade for the road race guys.

We can offer a full package that changes all the 1-6 synchros to the updated type. Contact us at z1sales@z1auto.com for details.

Legit In Tank 300 LPH Fuel Pump

9 Dec

In recent weeks, rumors have swelled on various forums about a drop in Walbro pump that outflowed the venerable 255 lph units everyone knows about and uses. It’s basically been proven to be complete BS.

Well, we’re pleased to announce DeatschWerks is releasing a legitimate 300 lph in tank pump in the first quarter of 2011. This is sure to be a hot product, but supplies will be extremely limited. The first batch will be ready in January, the second batch in March. Pricing is set at $169 and we’re doing free shipping in all 50 states for those who preorder.

• 100% E85 compatible
• Application specific fitment
• 3-year no-fault warranty
• Flow tested with custom report
• Uses a turbine wheel vs the standard rotor design of the traditional Walbro. This allows for a more consistent fuel delivery vs the pulsed flow of a standard Walbro 255 lph pump.

HKS Kansai Diffuser Group Buy Part I – Subaru!

8 Dec

We’ve been asked by a few members in recent weeks to conduct a group buy on genuine HKS Kansai rear diffusers for the WRX and STi. We are going to have both the 02-07 and the 2008 + cars represented in the group buy.

For the 2002-2007 guys, there are 2 basic types. The first comes with the exhaust cutout already predone, for those running stock mufflers, or similar oval type setups (Perrin, Apexi Worldsport, Tanabe Touring Medallion, etc). Some mufflers may need some minor dremeling for full clearance, but nothing that would be any big deal to do. The other type has no cutout at all, and this is best suited for those running any type of angled exhaust, exhausts with particularly large piping (APS 3.5 inch for example), and similar setups. This will allow you to trim the diffuser as you need to suit your particular setup. Again, the trimming is not difficult, and can be done with a dremel and cutoff wheel attachment, some masking tape. Each of the above types come in your choice of Carbon Fiber or Fiberglass (unpainted). Please note, that 200-2007 owners will need the additional fitting kit, and that is reflected in the pricing shown. Prices below [color=red]include[/color] shipping in the 48 states. For any location outside of the US, contact us with your full, complete address and we can look up the costs.

Group Buy Pricing:

HKS Kansai FRP Diffuser 2002-2005 WRX/STI – $849 shipped in the 48 states (cash/money order price is $825.00)
HKS Kansai Carbon Diffuser 2002-2005 WRX/STi – $979 shipped in the 48 states (cash/money order price is $950.00)
HKS Kansai FRP Diffuser 2006-2007 WRX/STi – $909 shipped in the 48 states (cash/money order price is $882.00)
HKS Kansai Carbon Diffuser 2006-2007 WRX/STi – $1039 shipped in the 48 states (cash/money order price is $1008.00)

add $64 to the above prices for Canada

For the 2008 + WRX/STi, the diffuser is carbon and priced at $979 shipped in the 48 states. Add $64 to Canada (cash/money order price is $950.00)

The Group Buy will close on 12/30/2010. Arrival to the states will be mid to late February 2011, and we will ship right away with tracking emailed. We need 5 people to make this happen (any combination of the above, just 5 total people), and I’d like to cap it at 15 people max, just to avoid any issues.

Payment can be made via credit card, check, money order, or cash.

Any questions, let us know!

Z1 Performance Timing Belt Kit for Subaru 2.5RS, WRX and STi

4 Nov

As we all know the timing belt is a critical piece of equipment on your Subaru Impreza. As these cars age and accumulate miles, the belt stretches and performance and reliability can be compromised. Subaru suggests replacing the belt every 60,000 miles under normal use, and if your car is raced, even shorter intervals are suggested. For this reason, we have put together a comprehensive timing belt replacement kit that includes everything needed for a full, complete timing belt replacement job. Alot of times, people take shortcuts on this and only replace the belt itself. Then a few thousand miles down the road, they find some of the other components wearing, or leaking, or making noises that were not there before and are forced to do the whole job over again. Do it right the first time and don’t be caught short. If you’re bringing these parts to your mechanic, he will thank you for giving him all the complete parts needed. If you’re having friends help you with the install over a weekend, when it’s 11PM on a Saturday and there are no parts stores open to replace that noisy idler pulley, you’ll be thankful you got them all as part of the kit.

Our kit contains the following:

Timing Belt
Tensioner
All Idlers (3 total)
New Water Pump
New Thermostat
New Thermostat Gasket
New Drive Belts for A/C, Alternator and Power Steering
