    Default Mazda 3 GT With Fujita CAI

    Ok, got my intake installed today... and also decided to get my car on a dyno!
    I don't have my digital camera right now, but as soon as i get it back I will show the dyno results but for now i'll just tell u the results.

    first run (no cai)
    Max HP = 123.46
    Max Torque = 130.76

    Second run (with Fujita Cold Air Intake)
    Max HP = 134.38!
    Max Torque = 139.75!

    Final Results 10.92 HP Gain!! and 8.99 Torque Gain!!

    Sorry about the double post, didn't know which forum to put it into.

    A 10 hp gain is really good. I'm considering getting a CAI but I don't know what to get yet. I was considering going the cheap way and buy a e-bay intake and slap on a AEM filter or something.

    As soon as I get my camera back, I will take a pic of the graph and post it...
    I tried using my cell phone for the pic, but it's useless.


    That's the best i can do for now

    those are pretty solid #s and the power band doesn't look really any different than the stock...so i guess that's pretty good

    Good for you. That's quite good for just an CAI, and at the wheel too.

    That is quite impressive, especially for a bolt on. I wonder if the MS intake returns similar numbers. 100$ for 5 runs? I might just do that one day when the car's all done.

    Actually more. He's got a GT 2.3 which is supposedly 156hp, so at the wheels 123 is quite the difference. Loses, gotta love em.

    Zubby are you running with an AT or MT?

    It just kinda flowed Zubby!

    The loses are quite intense, I'm surprised to. The automatic probably puts down about 5-8lb/ft less because of the slushbox losses.

    Every mild tuner goal (one I've set for myself), is to attain the wheel horsepower that was advertised at the crank. So I eventually want 156whp. This can be attained by intakes, exhaust, headers and pulleys. From there on your really tuning.

    Yea I was happy with the intake and it's performance, but I still thought a stock GT 5 Speed would pull off at least 130 HP.
    The guys that were setting up the dyno were making guesses, and I heard one guy say 108.

    dynos are not always the best for a true measurement of HP...every dyno is calibrated to read differently and a lot of other factors come into play also such as air flow/temperature/pressure level.

    dynos are primarily used as a measuring device of how much power gained after a modification...so you can see the amount of increase, but the actual figure maybe off.

    I doubt you'd feel 10hp. None of us are that in touch.

    The difference between a GX/GS and a GT is 10 hp. And I can feel each and every one.

    Well. There is more to that than just 10hp. There is 16 crank horsepower which is more like 10 - 15 wheel horsepower. Plus the torque is less. There is the ambient feel of being in a less sporty model. The 2.3 is a much stronger engine than just its numbers suggest.

    I guess you could feel the difference in horsepower though. The question is, on your 2.3L did you feel your intake make a differance?

    Ok, I did maybe a little in the mid rpm range but not really. Mostly I noticed the wonderful sound.

    EDIT: Fixed some of the above numbers, I was obviously on drugs that day
