Re: Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads for Track day?

last year I was tossing up between Hawk and QFM pads. With the awesome price of the QFM and the fact they are owned and made in Australia meant I went with them. Had no regrets with the A1RMs for track work.

Re: Flooded Engine Help [Different]

Genuine MRO (Mazda Rotary Oil) can be very expensive, just like anything else you buy from a dealership. The Penrite Everyday Mineral oil is 100% fine to use as an alternative.

Re: Top mount vs. Low mount

Just my 2c... My personal preference are low mount setups for two main reasons. Having the Turbo right at the exhaust ports helps increase throttle response as there's much less distance for the exhaust gasses to travel, it also gives the gas less time to cool, meaning higher thermal efficiency. Sec...
