pics - mazdatrix window trim, cool rollcage, diesel intercooler

One of my car buds installed the mazatrix replacement window trim.

The quality is excellent.



I like the "through the dash" rollcage. You can't even tell there's a rollcage installed unless you look closely



Finally I'm digging the diesel intercooler:

Ditto to what ^^^ they said

and How big is that intercooler, I've heard that desiel intercoolers are too big and cause a pressure drop, and execcesive turbo lag, can't tell from the pic how big it is but if all works well I definatly want to do this , I can't imagine spending $1000 on an FMIC seeing my car was only $2500

Is the roll cage custom, or did you order it from someone who had already designed it, and built some?

Your right,,that is a WAY clean installation of the front
section of the roll cage..one would have to really look
twice , it blends well,,who ever designed, and built it
or installed it too, looks like some clear thought went
in to it..now,,the padding / zip ties,,tacky,,a cover that
matches the colour of the head liner,,better...scored !!
at the junkyard..good score,! how many points is the
cage ?? well done,.man,..

I'm not sure who made the rollcage - he bought the car "as is" with a blown engine. I'll ask him to stop by and give some details on the rollcage.

The piping on the intercooler is 2.5" , so I'm guessing there's not a pressure drop. I had the same questions on effeciency & pressure - and he said this should be very effective.

Window trim is much cheaper from mazdatrix (www.mazdatrix.com)

That's just the trim from Mazda, Mazdatrix resells it, so it damn well should be good quality

can someone find out how much the front window trim is? Thnx. I have rust forming between the top part of the window and metal so I think once its off and sanded I will need to replace it.
And can I put in a window myself?

window trim is $40.
A side window is very easy to replace.
