Okay i just bought a Mazda speed3. It is being shipped with in the week to me. It should take no longer than 5 weeks to get here and i am losing my mind waiting. I was wondering if any of you car buffs are up on the hot parts for it? I want to put a good intake and exaughst (maybe a test pipe tehee) on it and what is the best to be had. I will include pictures when it gets off the ferry. We GIs have to wait for anything good . I wanna tune this badboy up but the mazda speed parts are crazy pricey. Little help from you turbo/engine gurus?

Well most the time you dont void the warranty on your car by installing a moderate system.

Injen put out an intake that supposedly bumps it up about 30 horsepower. The numbers are always pretty exagerrated but you could check out Cardomain.com. Thats where I saw the article. It'd be nice if the speed3 was AWD like the speed6 my buddy in our club has. Once you had a little power to it you might want to try to find any possible suspension mods or engine mounts or something to reduce wheel hop and keep your tires planted.

****** cars. speed protoge's are garbage as are the 3's. the only worth "talking about" is the 6.

We are trading the protospeed my brother has for a honda accord i believe. Complete junk through and through. Everyone we know with any speed other than the 6 (miata included in the crap department) are having it in the shop FAR more than driving it.

wow you're an idiot. the mazda speed 6 is a great car, the 3 is a good hot hatch and the miata is one of the best drivers cars dollar for dollar that you can possibly buy. much better than the sky and pontiac roadsters.

wow you're an idiot. the mazda speed 6 is a great car, the 3 is a good hot hatch and the miata is one of the best drivers cars dollar for dollar that you can possibly buy. much better than the sky and pontiac roadsters.

as i said. the 6 is the only one worth driving. in any level of the car. every protoge ever made has been ****. the older (80's and early 90's) may last a long time, but they are terrible cars. The 3 is ****, my buddy (who babies his) has blown his up twice now, with receipts to show maintanance at correct intervals. The miata, its a ***** car, slow at that, and anyone who "races" one may as well be named Corky. They are BY FAR not a respectable car. An all around driver? Anything with two seats, 2 or 3 inches off the ground, and 6 feet long, given a stiff suspension better be a **** good driving car. There is hardly anything acting against it lol, still a ****** car. I have driven 95's and up and have hated every single one.

anyway there is a consensus by those in the automotive world who do have an understanding of those concepts... and it doesn't coincide with your estimation.

You bought it because you wanted to look like you were driving a fast car, but your parents wouldn't cough up the dough for the GT. Possibly because they weren't confident in your driving skills/knowledge. I applaud them.

And yes, you'd probably like it much better if it were a 4 cylnder.

I can see you have no idea what you are talking about, imagine that.

I owned a protege5 2002 and was one of my favorite cars to date. Have had just about 20 plus cars being I am never happy in one type pf vechichle and well finical reasons took my protege away in a bad time in my life.

Anyway that car ran great for a 2.0l. Was great on gas and had an awesome factory suspension, although I lowered mine a little, easy to mod and work on. Not once in the 2 years I had it was it at the dealership. Ended up with over 50, 000 miles on it because I drove the **** out of it. Near the end, I had a wall in it because I got to many speeding tickets with it. That car was just a lot of fun.

Then to top it all off, this coming from a guy who drives a v6 mustang! Jesus Christ, fall off a cliff! Hopefully while you are driving the mustang. :suicide:

I guess I can confidently say that, you don't know me at all. Period. I got the mustang because the styling, not the performance. If you call a GT a "real mustang", then I have to question your knowledge. I haven't ridden in a GT that has suprised me unless it had MAJOR mods under the hood. Now, that being said, I have ridden in Joel's cobra and that....is a real Mustang. GT's...respectable at most.

The v6 or v8 option was solely mine. I honestly hate how the v8's look, nor do I need a large motor for daily. Sorry, you lost.

S-10? huh? I would gladly race you......and gladly lose. I understand (as well as accept) my car being ungodly slow. (!4.9 is the best I have seen completely stock for the 6) I do not plan on racing it, nor do I plan on really modifying it, until the warranty is done and I can literally cut the floor out of it. Until then....its JUST a daily for to and from school/work/tooling around town with friends.

Everyone pull out your e-weiners... and whoever's is the biggest... WINS!

It's personal preference. If you like it. More power to you. If you don't. Put your weiner in a blender. Blah.

I have driven an 04 Mazda 3, and now an 07 Mazda 3 fully loaded. My only complaint was the change in styling on the OEM 17" wheels, and that you can't get power seats from the factory.

Other than that, the factory Nav works better than most, I love the styling, the handling, and it's got enough zip to make it a fun car to drive.

Oh, and I have NEVER had a problem with either of mine... EVER.

what do you not understand about my mustang being a slow daily, with decent mileage? I drove EVERY MODEL CAR that I could get my hands on, and I just felt more comforatable in the mustangs than any other car. Not to mention it doesn't sound like a tin can closing the doors (like the Mazda's I drove).

You have not much room to talk seeing as you think you had a nice car......a Mazda Station wagon at that. Very cool.

how something drives, and being comfy in it, is far different my friend.


ex: a caddy escalade drives like ****......but they are comforatable. In my case, I liked the lay out of the mustang more than any other car I drove. The shifter isn't on the ground like the protoge's and other cars that I drove. It is rather high, and comforatable to drive. I never said it drove GOOD.

I guess I can confidently say that, you don't know me at all. Period. I got the mustang because the styling, not the performance. If you call a GT a "real mustang", then I have to question your knowledge. I haven't ridden in a GT that has suprised me unless it had MAJOR mods under the hood. Now, that being said, I have ridden in Joel's cobra and that....is a real Mustang. GT's...respectable at most.

The v6 or v8 option was solely mine. I honestly hate how the v8's look, nor do I need a large motor for daily. Sorry, you lost.

so you like having one tiny exhaust, small wheels and tires, an ugly grill. and horrible looking stance? i'm so sure. we know your mother bought that for you. we know she dictated what you could get. you dont know anything about real cars.

why wont you respond to the bit about the MX-5 you shameless *****? Admit it, you got caught speaking out of your *** and just flat out lying.

how something drives, and being comfy in it, is far different my friend.


ex: a caddy escalade drives like ****......but they are comforatable. In my case, I liked the lay out of the mustang more than any other car I drove. The shifter isn't on the ground like the protoge's and other cars that I drove. It is rather high, and comforatable to drive. I never said it drove GOOD.

Wow dude, youre a jerk. You stopped by this thread to flame my car? You dont have better stuff to do?

Just a quick pick at the idiot about the ricer comment.. more "import" cars are made in the usa, than american branded cars hahaha.

Anyways congrats on the purchase, I am not really a mazda guy but for the cash that is a darn nice car with a very nice interior. Good pick.

I wouldn't expect much more from the driver of a sporty taurus

what do you not understand about my mustang being a slow daily, with decent mileage? I drove EVERY MODEL CAR that I could get my hands on, and I just felt more comforatable in the mustangs than any other car. Not to mention it doesn't sound like a tin can closing the doors (like the Mazda's I drove).

You have not much room to talk seeing as you think you had a nice car......a Mazda Station wagon at that. Very cool.

Well you must not have driven a protege5 then, because my car didnt sound like a tin can when closing the doors.

Might have been a wagon, but was a lot of fun and not many people have them around my area. I got comments all the time on it. I mean I had some stuff done to it in rims, tint, exhaust and when I had the wall built. Hell it was even labled 1coolgrocerygetter. I lived with it and had fun all in the same sense. You and your v6 stang can hang together with a **** ton of other people being I see about 20 of them a day. I guess you like to fit in and I like to stand out.

v6 mustang=3.8 liter (i think? not sure on that one)
v8 ls= 3.9 liter
mustangs are heavy cars for having an engine almost the same size.
