    Default Mazda 3 Sport GT 151.41 FWHp, 150.01 FWTq

    Figured my first post ever would be something interesting. =)
    Looks like she was running a tad rich towards the end of the run, blowing some black smoke. Anyway, here we go:

    Mods:
    Mazdaspeed CAI
    Vibrant header
    Vibrant cat-back
    Buddy Club Condenser
    87 Octane, no timing advance.

    LOL, while I'm sure it'd be interesting, I'm not quite sure how it would fit...

    The Vortech is actually long gone. It was from my '97 Maxima.

    Anybody want the intercooler though??

    Ya, numbers look good for a non-turbo. Seems like the header and exhaust gave you an extra 15HP (since a 2.3 should produce around 135 with a CAI).

    LOL, "I need Nos. I need Nos!"

    Done the forced induction thing twice already. This one's gonna be a challenge. =)

    I'm gonna see what can be done in terms of tuning...might be able to eke out another 5 WHp with some timing advance, especially since I was running rich from 5000 Rpm on. I think tuning is gonna be a big factor in power adding.

    ...Or blowing it up.

    Maybee you can get the buddyclub, change all the pulleys, do the timing mod and see where you're at then.

    There's a dyno on M3F that shows buddyclub does give you some HP.

    Yup, already have the Buddy Club. I'm not entirely convinced that it was a power adder, but what was really noticable was throttle response, since I ran one of the grounds to the TB.

    maybe 1-2 HP, but barely noticeable....but throttle is a bit more responsive and i found shifting to be slightly smoother.

    There is a theory which states that a billion monkeys pounding on a billion keyboards will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare.

    Thanks to the Internet, we now know this theory is wrong.

    I was thinking about this.

    A next step could be integrating larger injectors, fuel pump and of course some new mapping.

    I think that is going to have to be your next step. Re-programming the computer on the car along with some other minor mods will help you get more power from what you've done already.

    Does anyone make a chip (that actually works) for the 3? I've been looking and so far the only real engine management option that doesn't suck looks like the Microtech.

    As far as fuel pressure and injectors go, it looks like for NA power under 200Whp the stockers should be fine. If a significantly higher compression ratio or boost were in play, then we'd have issues of the explody sort...

    I'm gonna try the ghetto advanced timing mod when I get a chance and see how it does on the dyno. Aside from that, maybe Cosworth will make an IM specifially for our cars. It should be worth another 10-20Whp, but I think tuning is still going to be the deciding factor.

    Oh, I forgot to mention: I want the car to make power AND be emissions legal. =)

    cosworth does make an intake manifold for our cars....



    and no, thats not my car. that guy lives in puerto rico, and has a 560 whp mazda3 sedan (2.3L). i think thats at 20 psi, on race gas IIRC.

    I've seen that manifold before. Not cheap at all. But probably a decent upgrade to our stock manifold. The is probably worth conestoga wagon of ponies.

    Mmm...that's hot. But that manifold's actually for the 2.3 Duratec in the Focus. Rumour has it that Cosworth's developing one specifically for our cars, which is what I'm hoping for. Plus I'm too lazy to spend $700 on an IM that I'd still have to modify to fit. Though the cable actuated throttle's a nice touch...

    I'd prefer a throttle cable, it be a lot better than the computer deciding what to do after my right foot asks it what to do. Our cars aren't to bad I guess, but some days!@$%&!

    ya, and you also cant rev the engine from the engine compartment.
    i hate that.

    i wanna dyno my car sometime after my headers are installed...
    and i would love to get a lightweight flywheel, but those are pricey....
