Review: AEM Cold Air Intake for Honda CRV 2015 and 2016 – AEM 21-790C

Hey guys, welcome to another Redline360 review video.

Today we’re going to review the AEM Cold Air Intake for the 2015 and 2016 Honda CRV, part number AEM 21-790C.

This intake is a direct bolt on, can be installed with standard hand tools, and requires no additional parts or accessories for install. This air intake system replaces your CRV’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing and adds 10 horsepower at 5700 RPM on an otherwise stock CRV. It also improves throttle response and adds a nice throaty engine sound under acceleration.

This intake is tuned by AEM to work with your factory fuel system to ensure that while it does add horsepower, it stays within the safety of your factory tune to give you peace-of-mind reliable performance. This air intake system was developed to accommodate the engine’s factory emissions control devices including the mass airflow sensor and PCV line. The tapered cylinder shaped AEM Dryflow air filter is made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed (depending on driving conditions).

At the time of filming this video, this intake is not smog legal or legal for sale in California, but AEM is working on getting this CARB certified. Check our site for an update on this status.

Hope you enjoyed this video. Let us know if you have any questions on this part, and come check out this part by clicking here: AEM Cold Air Intake Honda CRV 21-790C

BC Racing Coilovers Review at Redline360

Hey guys, Jon here with Redline360

Today we’re going to review one of our favorite coilovers on the market, BC Racing Coilovers. Not only do we think these coilovers are great from our customer’s own reviews and feedback, but we have them on our own 2012 E92 BMW M3 and we think they are perfect for the street and just awesome on the track.

BC Racing coilovers are 30 way dampening adjustable with simple clicks of the adjustment knob. All the way soft gives you a ride that we think is softer than stock, and all the way firm gives you a track-only, ultra stiff ride. Adjust between front and rear to get you the exact balance that you need. If you are unsure of how to set yours, just send us an email and we can offer suggestions. While other coilovers give you large range of adjustments as well, these coilovers actually make a difference with each click that you can feel.

Many applications also include front camber plates. To check if your specific application includes them, just look at our site at Redline360.com. The nice thing about the included camber plates is you can adjust your front camber without having to purchase a separate camber kit which can be $200 to $300 alone.

BC Racing coilovers give you the ability to set your own ride height. Generally even at the highest setting, there is about a one inch drop. At the lowest setting, it’s about a three inch drop. Some applications are available with extreme drop that gives you about an extra inch in adjustability, to really slam the car. For most extreme drop kits, BC Racing also provides special shocks that can handle the added drop.

You can’t go wrong with BC Racing coilovers. Great price, awesome quality, craftsmanship and performance, and a company that stands behind their product.

We are an authorized BC Racing dealer, so when you purchase your coilovers from us, BC Racing will honor their warranty and support. Check our website for a full application list and email us with any questions, we’re here to help.

See you on the track!

Ultimate Guide: Subaru BRZ Lowering Springs and Scion FR-S Lowering Springs Reviews

scion-frs-lowering-springs-subaru-brz-lowering-springs

We have a lot of customers with the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S asking us what lowering springs we recommend. It's really difficult to say as the brands we carry are all high quality, so the decision really lies in the drop you want, and the spring stiffness. It also depends on what type of driving you will be doing. So what we did was put together a list of the Scion FR-S Lowering Springs and Subaru BRZ Lowering Springs that we carry to help you decide on what is best for you.

We'd love to hear your reviews and feedback in the comments. Let us know what your favorite springs are for your FR-S or BRZ.


Swift Race Spec-R Lowering Springs
Swift Lowering Springs Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ [Race Spec-R] - Part # 4T909R

Lowers in the front: 1.1"
Lowers in the rear: 1.0"
Spring Rate: Linear

Review: For those who care more about handling and performance that the amount of lowering, Swift springs are our favorite. Swift has made a name for itself with coilover springs and has recently released it's own line of lowering springs and it's making waves. Absolutely excellent springs and they are designed to be used with stock shocks.


TruHart Lowering Springs
TruHart Lowering Springs Scion FRS/Subaru BRZ - Part # TH-S406

Lowers in the front: 1.75"
Lowers in the rear: 1.25"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: Lifetime

Review: TruHart is an entry level spring with handling and performance that surprised us. The ride is firmer but still comfortable, the lowering is aggressive, and a lifetime warranty protects against any manufacturer defects. Great springs for those who want something cheap yet functional and quality. Performance shocks recommended.


D2 Racing Lowering Springs
D2 Racing Lowering Springs Scion FRS/Subaru BRZ - Part # D-SP-SC-06

Lowers in the front: 1.75"
Lowers in the rear: 1.25"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: Lifetime

Review: D2 Racing lowering springs are one of the most popular for the FT86 platform. Great ride, aggressive lowering and one of the best priced springs available. Aftermarket shocks are recommended with springs that lower so aggressive.


B&G S2 Sport Lowering Springs
B&G S2 Lowering Springs Scion FR-S - Part # 92.1.101
B&G S2 Lowering Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # 86.1.030

Lowers in the front: 1.4"
Lowers in the rear: 1.4"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: Lifetime

Review: B&G Lowering Springs are nice for those who want to lower their BRZ or FR-S but maintain a good ride. B&G offers almost a 1 and a half inch drop front and rear which is more geared toward the aggressive drop.


Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs
Eibach Pro Kit Springs Scion FR-S - Part # 82105.140
Eibach Pro Kit Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # 82105.140

Lowers in the front: 1.0"
Lowers in the rear: 1.0"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: Million Mile

Review: Eibach Pro Kits are great for those who want to reduce some of the fender gap, but don't want to be too low. One inch drop front and rear is considered minor, but it's good for those who don't want to worry about rubbing aftermarket wheels and tires on their fenders. Of course it depends on what size aftermarket wheels and tires you run, but this is a generally a safe bet. Great ride.


Eibach Sportline Lowering Springs
Eibach Sportline Springs Scion FR-S - Part # 4.10582
Eibach Sportline Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # 4.10582

Lowers in the front: 1.4"
Lowers in the rear: 1.4"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: Million Mile

Review: If the Eibach Pro Kits didn't lower your car enough, the Sportlines might be for you. Eibach Sportline is made to lower about half an inch more than the Pro Kit, so you get a more aggressive stance and clear up even more of that wheel gap.


H&R Sport Lowering Springs
H&R Sport Lowering Springs Scion FRS - Part # 4408
H&R Sport Lowering Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # 54408

Lowers in the front: 1.0"
Lowers in the rear: 1.2"
Spring Rate: N/A
Warranty: N/A

Review: H&R Sport Springs give you about the same drop as the Eibach Pro Kit, but lower a bit more in the rear. H&R prides itself on offering a good ride, and many of our customers give their Sport springs great reviews.


H&R Super Sport Lowering Springs
H&R Super Sport Lowering Springs Scion FRS - Part # 54408-77
H&R Super Sport Lowering Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # 54408-77

Lowers in the front: 1.2"
Lowers in the rear: 1.4"
Spring Rate: N/A
Warranty: N/A

Review: H&R Super Sport Springs are for those who want to be a bit lower than what the sport provides, so these lower the car an extra .2" front and rear.


Hotchkis Lowering Springs
Hotchkis Lowering Springs Scion FR-S - Part # 19445
Hotchkis Lowering Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # 19445

Lowers in the front: 1.0"
Lowers in the rear: 1.0"
Spring Rate: N/A
Warranty: 3 Years / 36,000 Miles
Made in the USA.

Review: Hotchkis springs, made in the USA, are designed for comfort in the mind. Minimal lowering, but enough to close the gap.


Megan Racing Lowering Springs
Megan Racing Lowering Springs Scion FRS/Subaru BRZ - Part # MR-LS-SFR12

Lowers in the front: 1.75"
Lowers in the rear: 1.25"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: 3 Years

Review: The Megan Racing springs are for those who want a serious drop. These are designed to go low, but still offer a good ride. One thing common with springs that have big drops is they tend to sag even more over time. Megan Racing springs are unique in that they have a very high tensile strength steel that resists this premature sagging pretty well.


Manzo Lowering Springs
Manzo Lowering Springs Scion FRS/Subaru BRZ - Part # LSSFR-12

Lowers in the front: 1.75"
Lowers in the rear: 1.25"

Review: Our least expensive spring offered for this platform, yet comparable to more expensive springs. Good ride quality, good handling and braking improvements and good craftsmanship. Great entry level spring that offers aggressive lowering. Recommended to use performance shocks with these. It appears to be a common thread that the lowest priced springs all have the same amount of drop.


RS-R Super Down Lowering Springs
RS-R Lowering Springs Scion FR-S [Super Down] - Part # T065S

Lowers in the front: 1.1"
Lowers in the rear: 1.3"
Spring Rate: N/A
Warranty: 1 Year / 12,000 miles.
Made in Japan.

Review: RS-R Springs, made in Japan, are arguably the best riding springs we sell. RS-R really takes the daily driver into consideration to create a lowering springs that works with the OEM geometry, lowers just the right amount, and maintains a comfortable ride. These springs are actually designed to be used with the factory shocks.


Tanabe GF210 Lowering Springs
Tanabe GF210 Lowering Springs Scion FRS/Subaru BRZ - Part # TGF166

Lowers in the front: 0.6"
Lowers in the rear: 0.9"
Spring Rate: N/A
Warranty: N/A

Review: Tanabe GF210 lowering springs give you the least amount of drop that we sell. This is good for those that want to lower their car a little, and want to keep as much of the factory ride as possible. These springs are also made for those who want a soft and supple ride. Really for those who want to reduce just a bit of wheel gap, not have a noticeably lower car, and retain as much ride quality as possible.


TEIN HTech Lowering Springs
TEIN HTech Springs Scion FR-S - Part # SKSA0-G1B00
TEIN HTech Springs Subaru BRZ - Part # SKSA0-G1B00

Lowers in the front: 1.0"
Lowers in the rear: 0.8"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: 1 Year

Review: TEIN HTech lowering springs, also known as High Tech, are TEIN's luxury springs, which are designed to give you a modest drop with maximum ride comfort. Good for those who are all about the ride, and just want to close some of the wheel gap.


TEIN STech Lowering Springs
TEIN STech Springs Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ - Part # SKQ54-AUB00

Lowers in the front: 1.4"
Lowers in the rear: 1.2"
Spring Rate: Progressive
Warranty: 1 Year

Review: TEIN STech Lowering Springs are a relatively aggressive drop, but still offer much of the benefits of a more luxury spring as ride comfort is key. TEIN STech's are a popular choice as they have a drop that most customers are looking for without being too aggressive.

Review: TEIN STech Lowering Springs Scion tC – TEIN SKL52-AUB00

For more info or to order: Click here

Here we have the TEIN S-TECH Lowering Springs, part number SKL52-AUB00 for the 2005 to 2010 Scion tC.

These springs lower your tC, 2.4 inches in the front and 2 inches in the rear.

What’s nice about the S-TECH lowering springs is they are progressive design. This means as the springs compress, their spring rate goes up. So under normal daily driving, the springs will feel softer and have a better ride. Under compression, they will stiffen and give you better handling. This is a great spring for those who want to lower their car, but maintain a good ride.

These springs come with this silencer rubber to prevent any unwanted noise and have a 1 year warranty against defects and sag. TEIN guarantees they won’t sag more than 5mm

These springs work well with the factory shocks, or with performance aftermarket shocks.

We have these on our site and they include all 4 springs for a complete setup, plus warranty information and TEIN stickers.

Review: RS-R Lowering Springs Lexus IS250/IS350 Part # T195D

For more info or to order: Click here

Here we have the RS-R Lowering Springs, part number T195D for the Lexus IS250 and IS350 rear wheel drive.

These lowering springs lower your Lexus 1.2 inches to 1.4 inches in the front and 1 inch to 1.2 inches in the rear. They generally settle at about 1.3 inches front and 1.1 inch rear.

RS-R designs these springs to give you exceptional ride quality and comfort, while lowering your center of gravity and improving handling, braking and overall performance.

Unlike other lowering springs, RS-R designs these around the OEM suspension geometry, so these springs take full advantage of your suspension to make it handle even better. You’d be surprised how some other lowering springs feel like they improve handling, but actually show worse track times because balance is thrown off.

These springs work great with your factory shocks and are designed and built in Japan.

These are some of the best quality springs we sell, and we highly recommend them for your IS250 and IS350.

We’re an authorized RS-R dealer, and offer these new with manufacturer’s warranty. Check them out by clicking here.

VIDEO: Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilovers Review

Today I wanted to talk about the KSport Kontrol Pro Fully Adjustable Coilover Kits that we carry on Redline360.com. We recommend these coilover kits for those who not only want a high performance coilover for the track, but also something that's also comfortable for the street and daily driving. These feature 36 levels of dampening adjustment, which alters compression and rebound simultaneously, to allow you to really fine tune the suspension to your needs.

The Ksport system uses a monotube design in which the oil and gas are separated within the cylinder. When compared to twin tube construction, the monotube design dissipates heat faster and more evenly and allows for finer damping adjustments. Aeration and cavitation issues are a lot less common in a monotube design, which results in a more consistent ride quality.

Depending on your application, these come with pillowball mounts and front camber kit. Another nice feature is that you adjust the height on these using the lower mount, which allows you to lower your vehicle without affecting spring travel and ride quality. This way you can go as low as the coilovers allow without having to worry about bottoming out the shock. To finish it off, these have an electroplated body for added protection from corrosion and rust, and a dust boot helps to protect the damper seal.

To get more info on these, check out the KSport Kontrol Pro Coilovers on our site at Redline360.com. And since we're an authorized KSport dealer, you're covered under the 18 month warranty that KSport provides when you buy from us.

If you have any questions, please leave the below in the comments.

Thanks guys!
