    Correct! Mazda cheaped out on 2 inches worth of harness wires so it was too short since you have to stretch it a bit albeit not much to attach it to the intake, as the intake vibrates, over time the already tensioned harness wires will come loose which causes the MAF to act funny and your car to run like poop.

    Surprisingly this is only on the 06's, the 04-05s harness seems to have more slack.

    Anyway I gotta post a review since this is the review thread.

    Customer: Kevin (co-worker from Future Shop) with 1997 1.6 EL
    Replaced: Left Upper Control Arm, Exhaust Manifold (header)
    Shop: Street Performance (Jim)

    I told my friend Kevin about street performance when he told me that he needed to fix his car. I assured him thats really the only place I'd go to have maintenace aside from the dealer of course for the car.
    Called Jim for an appointment, got fitted in the same day.
    Got there, Jim was running a bit late but thats because he takes his time with his cars (eh it happens).

    He meticulously looked over the car, checked everything

    While Jim was figuring out what was wrong with the car, we got a free lesson on how cars work =). He knew what to look for when I told him what Kevin's concerns were.

    Quickly found that the header was cracked (told us so even before removing the heat shield because he's that confident about the cause of the problem)
    Also quickly found that the left upper control arm that was causing issues as well.

    He gave Kevin a quote (which was a very good price). Told us that he's not going to charge for looking at the car and finding the problems because an hour of his time ($50) is worth making an extra friend. =)

    Kevin brought his car back to him two days later. Jim had obtained the parts quickly and replaced it on his car.

    Kevin says his car feels a lot better now.

    just to add to the reviews (and make my first post on TM3 )

    i swung by Street Performance today to talk to Jimmy. i didn't get anything done, but first impression was really good. he's honest, and nice, and i'll very likely be going to him in the (nearish) future

    Thanks to the Internet, we now know this theory is wrong.

    Hey that's the same place I went to get mine lowered last summer.

    Someone from here recommended it to me, and I drove down from Orillia. They did it for 1/4 the price they wanted up here, and in 1/3 the time.

    Can't get any better than that.

    Well I just got back from visiting Jim and his crew from Street Performance. They did a great job installing my Prokits and Koni Yellows. I also had the pleasure of meeting Vlad, and he had the pleasure beating my car apart for a few minutes. (You have a sweet ride and it was nice meeting you.)

    Jim and his crew are great guys, hilarious, honest and highly professional. All the reviews listed above reassured me to visit Street Performance, and I would like to say that I too highly recommend them.

    A+++ service.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, and thank you Steet Performance.

    Edit...
    (Just found out that there might be a bearing and something else that is making 2 different sounds in the suspension/wheel area). Both weren't present before the shock/spring install. 1 of the sounds is a ticking sound, and the other is sort of like a woooing/humming sound, both seem to be proportional to 1 tire revolution. Both sounds dissapear when breaks are applied.) I'm going to give them a shout tomorrow if they're open to see if they'll be able to resolve this issue.
    (I'll keep you guys posted)

    +1! Jimmy and the gang are No1 here in Toronto. Jimmer installed my MS intake and exhaust as well as my hi-flow cat... while Vlad put on my HID fogs! Awsome job and Im very pleased with the final product! The ms exhaust is loud! Love waking up the neighbours! Amazing install and even better price! Jimmy is the man! Need something else to put on so I can go back!

    It's better to give them a call to confirm pricing, but they gave me a really good rate for what was done. =D

    They don't do alignments, I'll be getting the alignment done someplace else after 1.5-2weeks

    I'll be visiting them Tomorrow Morning to have things checked out. I'm sure it's the wheel bearing and perhaps the uhhhh cv arm? ( i think that's what it was called )

    Hopefully it's nothing major. I'll keep you posted

    Just got back from Street Performance, For the most part everything seems to be back to normal. (At least I think I still hear the humming but it's probably in my head, I'll give it a day to determine if I'm going )

    The humming was most likley caused from the wheel hub not being secured properly, as for the ticking/squeek, a piece of the breakpad was slightly rubbing the rotor.

    If anything does occur Jimmy reassured me that he'll take care of it so all is good.

    Yeah... Vlad calls Jimmer names and visa versa... It is rather funny and entertaining Especially when Jimmer pretends to hit Vlads car.... Another good moment is when Vlad is cleaning his shoes with brake cleaner while lighting a cigarette.... LOL Good times at SP!
