    PhatSpeed3 マツダ BL3FW

    Well I have had this car for about 3 months now and don't have any regrets, this car is a real sleeper. Most of my driving is on the highway and this car is just a blast, tons of torque in every gear!!

    Wondering how many other Mazdaspeed3 owners we have here? I was on some of the other Mazda3 forums and there does not seem to be very much info on the model I have as of yet, and the owners on those other forums just don't seem like they want to help each other out as much as us Miata guys.

    What aftermarket exhaust are you guys running? I am looking a the HKS LEGAMAX Premium because I have owned the HKS stuff in the past and the quality is second to none.

    Also found this Fujitsubo but almost a grand for that one

    Or maybe KAKIMOTO

    Not sure how it is on the 2010+, but from what I hear, you dont gain much other than sound from a catback.
    my buddy has an 09 with
    Cobb AP
    Test pipe
    Autotech FP Internals
    Cobb Intake
    Turbosmart BOV

    The thing is pretty damn quick. Make sure you do Internals if you do anything other than the AP and intake to avoid Zoom-Zoom-Boom. Or, get an AP and keep an eye on your Fuel pressure (dont let it go under 1700) They are great cars and can be built to be super reliable.

    You need internals on a 2010+ from what i hear though. Stock one cant handle the extra load

    The MZR engine has a factory-advertised 263 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque It is in fact a turn-key Monster.

    Yeah I have been doing more research on the cars, honestly the engine is a beast, the motor might get some bolt-ons, but any other funds would go for suspension and wheel / tire stuff.

    HKS stuff is nice. But I can't stop saying how awesome Fujitsubo is with their exhausts. Really high quality, light weight, and awesome sound.

    This car is sweet. Buy an access port. Intake + exhaust and it should be golden.

    Just wish it was AWD though.

    Cool looking Rain / Window Visors here from Auto-EXE, but the price is $100 more than OEM so I might have to cheap out and do the OEM.
