Had no idea why my Exhaust was so loud after work one day. Shortly after this video was taken I discovered (with a mate) that some stooge must have tried to steal my shiny muffler tips because they pulled the muffler out of the Exhaust pipe, but left it sitting on the hangers. was fun to drive around though haha
Mazda MX6 - How to Upgrade Your Struts & Springs
Upgrading ND28's GoldMember MX-6 using Tokico Blues (HB/HP Series) with
Megan Racing (lowering) springs. The setup will cost about $400-$500
(depending on vendors) and can be completed in a weekend.
The end result is a medium spring rate which is still comfortable yet
provides less body roll in the corners and makes spirited driving much more
enjoyable. In my opinion this kit is a very nice upgrade for those who
want a great balance of performance and comfort.

2010 Mazda CX-9 With No Muffler
Here's my wife's new 2010 Mazda CX-9. There's nothing fancy about it. After
we got it, I was looking underneath it (trying to comprehend how a car
could be so clean underneath), and I saw how easy it would be to bypass the
muffler. My curiosity got the better of me, so I did it. For anyone who
wants to know, it's two 17 mm bolts right under neath the front seats. I
really don't recommend this, it sounds terrible. Even if you like the sound
of a ricer, because it's a 6 speed automatic, running through the gears
sounds really dumb. However, I think it'd be hilarious to go to a
dealership and undo a bunch of these cars....
KLDE MX-5 First idle!
The KLDE MX-5 idling properly now after I fixed the air leak. And would you
just listen to it when I rev it! lol
The ECU isn't tuned at all, that will have to wait until the Exhaust and cooling system is finished.
Paintless Dent Repair Using a Heat Gun and a Can of Compressed Gas Duster
Can you repair dents in an automobile with a hair dryer and a can of
compressed air? Yes and no. It depends upon the location and severity of
the damage. But as I have demonstrated, with a heat gun, $9 worth of Endust
Duster, and about 15 minutes, you can achieve some remarkable results.

Responses to the most common criticisms:
Q. Why didn't you just push the dent out from behind?
A. This is a hybrid vehicle and there is A/C equipment for battery cooling
that is located between the sheet metal and the interior finish. The dent
was simply not accessible from the inside.
Q. Why didn't you just use a toilet plunger and pull the dent out?
A. That may have worked on the larger of the two dents, but the surface
area of the smaller dent would have made that impossible.
Q. This video and photos of the dents have been Photoshopped and faked!
A. Absolutely not. I will gladly attest that this video and the images of
the dent, before and after, have not been retouched. I also have a witness
who observed the process and would attest the same.
Q. "Tapping" the panel like you did in the video would have popped the dent
out without the heating and cooling.
A. My attempts to pop the dent out with persuasive tapping by hand and a
rubber mallet prior to the heating / cooling did not have any impact.
Q. This process didn't help, you can still see the dents!
A. Yes. if you look closely you can still see the smaller of the two dents.
However, the larger of the two is not distinguishable to the casual
observer. This process made a significant improvement to the appearance of
both dents. It is not a factory perfect repair, but this is not a valuable
vehicle either. I could not justify the expense of a professional body shop
for a vehicle that is seven years old and +150,000 miles. This process
provided a good alternative.
Mazda Mx6 LS turbo Mic in front of radiator.
A short video with the microphone in front of the radiator. I recently blew
an Exhaust gasket on the rear primary
and have been hesitant to fix that..It can be heard in the video.. Im also
Boosting 7psi, with a bit of lag I
suppose from that leak.
I Didnt go crazy with any of these pulls being the roads I take are often
patrolled. In the video you will see I hesitate to shift into 4th, I was
already doing over the speed limit and approaching traffic cones but I went
for some of 4th anyway ;)
