    Hey guys, I don't want to use bluetooth for audio streaming, because you cannot access a tracklist on the screen or change folders. I'd like to use my phone as USB stick. The internal phone memory is connected, but when I want to access music files on it, it takes so much time until the whole...

  12. EGR block off

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Alright help me out here. I've read so much info on catch cans and other crap I have confused myself. It seems that an oil catch can is a good thing to have in these cars. Isn't the EGR the main cause of the soot and carbon build up? James Barone sells an EGR block off plate for 20...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I did a couple of searches and didn't find anything under Power Distribution on this forum. On some of my bikes, I've installed some Distribution blocks so that I can have accessories run when the tail lights/license lights are on (which is always). I was thinking about doing this to my car...
