    I bought the Delrin shift knob in the OP. Fits like shit, won't thread on properly. Contacted seller, said, "seems like your thread pitch is off", they sent me another one. Same shit. Get about 4-5 revolutions on and it feels like it's cross-threading and gets super stiff. If you take it off, threads look fucked up. Wouldn't recommend until further notice.

    I heard they are crap. Is it really good or you just googled it?

    I have been running one for over a year now no issues, they drain slow but are nice and make oil changes very clean. @alexwlwsn and @Maisonvi both have them and have had no issues. The point of this thread is stuff that actually works and is not just crap I googled. Constructive criticism is welcome. If you see anything that does not look correct let me know.

    The oil valve? It's awesome and I love it. Been running it for 2 years now? Makes oil changes easy and clean. And if you do oil testing you can pull a little out without draining all the pan.

    Please remove this until further notice. I am having issues that Stratified believes may be caused by this. I have new OEM in hand and will test this weekend. If problems go away, this product can be labeled a shithole

    It works for any mazdaspeed or mazda 3 or 6...just get the adapter with it and you're golden.

    What is the verdict on that Amazon MAF sensor? I need one soon.

    Go ahead and pick one up. Mine wasn't the source of my problem and is currently back in my car. The cost savings over OEM is redonkulous

    So quick question about VC breather for gen1. Does this effectively remove the need to replace the gen1 VC with the gen2 VC?

    There is a new breather for the gen juan that has a tube which prevents the oil from splashing the filter. I will have to find it and update this at some point. If you find it let me know.
