Thread: Speck :: 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage ES (Garage entry)

  1. General Information
    Speck
    2015
    Mitsubishi
    Mirage ES
    Sapphire Blue
    5 speed manual
    Details

    Replaced damaged left side mirror with aftermarket part from Rock Auto.

    •  

    Disabled automatic air conditioning, saving fuel and prolonging life of the compressor.

    •  
    •  

    Fumoto F106SX oil drain valve for easy, simple oil changes.
    ZeroStart 3100111 Engine Block Heater
    2017-Oct-25: Added experimental warm air intake ducting from over exhaust manifold to air filter box inlet (Removed 2018-Jan-20)
    2018-Jan-30: Added grill block. Between the two, I think the grill block is more effective.

    •  

    2018 Jun 14: Installed Daox Rear Sway Bar

    •  

    Increased tire pressure for improved fuel economy.

    Summer Tires: 4 Dunlop Enasave (165/65R14) on Mitsubishi Mirage ES factory alloy rims (stock wheel set for the 2015 ES.)
    Winter Tires: 4 Dunlop Wintermaxx (165/65R14) mounted on Mitsubishi factory steel rims.
    I have an extra set of Enasaves from forum member Zero and monitor and note treadwear at oil changes.

    That's a good idea. I find I can usually tolerate a cold cabin until the engine warms up, but I might try it one day.

    Since I live in Portland now, I don't really need much, but back in ND I had a block heater, lower radiator hose heater, and an oil pan heater on my Elantra. It may seem like overkill, but my goal was getting to operating temp as fast as possible. It might be worth your time. None are very expensive either.

    I added a link to my Monroney sticker under Speck's general notes so everyone can see the factory configuration.

    Busy morning. After sleeping in until 5:00 AM, a quick bowl of corn flakes and a bit of coffee, I proceeded to spend an hour shoveling.

    Dang! That's a heap of snow. I sure don't miss those mornings. Nothing but copious quantities of rain here.

    Haha - WOW!!!

    I'm on the east coast this month, so thankfully not seeing as much of the white stuff as I usually do.

    One year of Speck! I celebrated with a car wash yesterday to knock back the layer of road salt.

    Nothing to report, really. I need to get caught up with fuel fill-ups. The winter fuel economy is a drag but it's more comfortable than walking.

    One of these days I'll post about my dashcam.


    Cheers!

    No modifications planned at this point. I've been thinking about a hitch for my bike rack with an Airlift kit - we'll see.

    No big trips planned yet.
