Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake: 2015 Subaru WRX STI Build, Part 2 Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake

Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake The Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake is officially the first performance install for my little-ole 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. And, thus far, I’m quite happy with it. Like I said in my first build post, while I’ve done pretty much every repair you can imagine on a car, this is my first real performance wrenching. So, I decided to start with an easy upgrade that may...

2015 Subaru WRX STI Build: Part 1 I've Finally Started the Build on my 2015 STI...

I’ve Finally Started the Build on my 2015 Subaru WRX STI… About 6 months ago, I bought an Ice Silver Metallic 2015 Subaru WRX STI with an STI Short-Throw Shifter and upgraded Kicker sound system. Since then, I’ve made a few cosmetic changes. By that I mean red RockBlokz Rally Mud Flaps, OLM LED high beam and daytime running lights (from SubiSpeed.com), Lamin-X yellow foglight covers and a bit of plasti-dip on the...

2015 Ford Mustang Specs – GT Gets 435 HP

Not to be outdone by Dodge and their obscene 707 horse Challenger SRT Hellcat, Ford has just release their own muscle car news.  Of course, I have to be referring to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and its more-than-respectable-in-fact-its-downright-great 5.0-liter V8 churning out 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.  By the way, that’s 20 more horse than a 996 Porsche 911 Turbo.  Food for thought.   Not to be outdone by...

[UPDATE: The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 officially produces a massive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.  Holy crap.] With a 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 producing over 600 horsepower, we knew the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat exhaust note would be mean… Just plain mean.  Oh, and loud… Mean and loud.  But, we didn’t have any idea it would be this mean and loud and...

2015 Jeep Renegade: Here Comes the Baby Jeep

People are calling the 2015 Jeep Renegade a baby SUV or a Cute Ute.  I myself just called it the Baby Jeep two seconds ago in this post’s headline.  But, truth be told, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is a (semi-) serious, off-road SUV that is fully worthy of carrying the Jeep badge atop those seven vertical grill slats.   The 2015 Jeep Renegade broke cover at the Geneva Motor Show last month, but it has since made its US debut at...

2015 Lincoln Navigator: New-ish Biggest Lincoln

So, back in the late nineties, General Motors and Ford were matching wits in the development of big, thirsty, luxury-esque SUVs.  In 1999, Cadillac debuted the Escalade (which was basically a re-badged Yukon Denali), and in 1998 the Blue Oval people unveiled the Lincoln Navigator, which was essentially a more upscale and better trimmed version of the Ford Expedition.  Next year, GM and Ford are going head-to-head again with new...

2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: A C-Class Worth Having [NAIAS, Video]

I’ve always hated the Mercedes-Benz C-Class… hated it.  I thought it was phoned-in, cheesy, underpowered, ugly and just complete rubbish.  I don’t think I was alone in thinking this.  As a matter of fact, I know I wasn’t alone in this opinion.  And, I think the powers that be at Mercedes-Benz finally understood the general ire people felt toward the C-Class while they were designing the new one, because it is...
