Featuring triangulated reinforcements, making it very rigid. Again, this keeps geometry in check when going over uneven roads, particularly when turning. Immediate improvement in steering response will be felt as well. Priced at $226.00.

Lastly, the S-OC coilovers for the 2011+ WRX are here! These affordable, high quality adjustable coilovers allow you full control of rideheight.

Featuring a short stroke damper, which allows maximum suspension travel even when lowered. Allows you to lower the car from -.25 inch to -2.25 inches front and back vs stock. Spring rates are 5 kg/mm front (279.98 lbs/inch) front and 4 kg/mm (223.99 lbs/inch) out back. If you want a comfortable, affordable coilover from a name you can trust, these are built for you!

Gotta Keep Them Separated

2 May

….oil and air that is, if performance is anywhere remotely on your radar screen with your car. From the factory excess crankcase vapors, residual oil and moisture are vented back into the intake manifold and intercooler which compromises performance and durability. Removing the excess crankcase vapors, residual oil and moisture are accomplished by having two tanks; one tank collects from the intake manifold tract and the second tank collects from each cylinder head. If both were plumbed into the same tank then the crankcase ventilation system could not operate the way it was designed to, the Moroso kit is the only Subaru air separator that accomplishes this. Removing this oil mist before it reenters the engine; reduces detonation, deposits on the intake track including the valves themselves and from lowering the efficiency of the intercooler itself.

We have these kits from Moroso available for a variety of cars, including the Subaru WRX/STi, Mitsubishi Evo, Mazda Miata, and more. Contact us at z1sales@z1auto.com for details

Braid Competition Wheels – When Good Enough isn’t Good Enough

4 Jan

For 2012 we are now offering the full range of Braid Competition wheels. Many of you familiar with the rally scene have probably heard of Braid. For those that haven’t, here is a brief introduction.

Braid was formed in Spain in 1978, with the sole purpose of making competition level wheels primarily for rally use. Their wheels have been used by amateurs and professionals alike. Because all the design, R&D and production is done in house, they have an amazing level of customization available. Wheels can be produced in a very wide range of offsets, bolt patterns, and colors, something you are hard pressed to find almost at any price point. Because they are designed primarily for competition use, this is a firm that embraces the ‘small stuff’, such as 15 and 16 inch sizes. Sure, they offer larger wheels, for touring car, etc. but the roots are in rally racing, and that remains their bread and butter. Since it’s original introduction, the factory has expanded numerous times and today produces wheels ranging from gravel and tarmac spec cast wheels, to mulipiece, even forged and magnesium wheels.

To reiterate, these are not some fly-by-night knock off brand churning wheels out of some random factory in the middle of the pacific rim. These are legit motorsport level wheels. The same wheels the various teams through Europe use on their car, are the exact same wheels you can purchase for your car. These aren’t wheels that will fall apart in a few years, or lose a tremendous amount of value, or fall ‘out of style’. Good stuff never does!

Now, onto the good stuff! While we have access to the full range, and custom orders are easily accomplished, the following represents wheels that are available straight away

Remember, while the above represents wheels that are good to go now, if you can dream it, it probably can be built! If you’ve got an event coming up that you NEED a set of wheels for, and waiting isn’t an option, we can generally have a custom set, made just for you, on your doorstep in just a few weeks time. If your car has specific needs, such as unique suspension or brake requirements, or even just a custom color, we’ll work with you to develop the right size, so it fits correctly, the first time

Thanks and Happy 2012!

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
