Well go roll your fenders then get the springs Well anyway I put em on ebay and hopefully someone will buy them. I need some cash so I can buy either cp-e intake or magnaflows, or decide to pay some money to my parents for my car.[:'(]

You probably just need to reinitialize the auto function RJB_M6. Easy to do yourself.

Start with the key in run position. Run the drivers window down so it is open about 3-4 inches. Now run the window up but when it reaches closed position keep holding the switch for 3 seconds then release. Repeat this same thing over at the passenger front door using its own switch and not the main switch. If rear doors are also AUTO then do the same procedure with passenger rear and then drivers rear in that order. Auto function should now be working normal.
yes it's a good thing that electronic manufacterers make it abe to reset anything they make with a seiries of buttons even if it's a simple mechanism. I had to fix the sunroof in our 2002 ford focus once and the procedure was open the sunroof fully retracted the close it and keep holding the close button, then it would tilt forward and raise the rear, keep holding, and it would lower the rear, then open all the way and then it worked normally. My Mp3 player is reset if you hold off and volume up at the same time. I just think it's neat that simple stuff like telling the car to close an already closed windo can fix a problem.

I did the air box mod before. Gen 2. The proper way to do it is to:
1) remove the false bottom inside the air box. Fill the small holes up that get left behind from removing the bottom from where it attaches to at side, if you don't you will suck in hot air from the engine bay. Leave the tuba alone otherwise same issue with hot air. Leave flapper alone as it works fine, no gain.
2) Here's the big difference: drill 6 3/8" holes in the bottom of the resonator which is located down below, accessible from underneath. This will give you the cold air and more air you need!
3) Also change your air filter to a K&N!

There is a theme so I do not want to open a new one.
Everyone wants airbox intake to sound powerful, louder and so on. Yesterday I found my Mazda 6 GG 2.0 89kw 2007 notice that the airbox suction tube on the airbox produces a deep tone. I would love to have no tone, to be silent. What can I do about that?
