High themp rtv works wonders, I use it for the mani, wastegate, and for the downpipe a metal one from EBAY, so far so good.
30 bucks yeah it is crazy, what one saves on cheap tranmissions and cylinder heads flips out on particular items.
There is this website I found that wants 130.00 for the passenger racing mount and almost the same for the drivers side. Getting racing parts for Mazda in some cases cost an arm and a leg. Somewhat like the JDM bumpers sold on Corksport...!
At the end of the 30 bucks are spent on the blink of an eye be it eating out or spending it on a bar.
There are some items that CS sells that its unique to them so they can easy sky rocket there prices if one wants to get a hold on some items. Like the saing:
"You have to give from the wing to eat from the breast"
So some items are overly priced while others are ok, to me it is a good deal the brake braided lines they sell, etc.
