  1. Spin on oil filter mod for the 2.3L engines

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods

  5. Sound of 4 cylinder engines

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey guys, First and foremost I'd like to point out what a lovely looking and handling car the Mazda 3 is. Loved it since I first saw the new design. The Kodo design language makes it look aggressive and tough. Sadly the sound that comes with the stock car is far from aggressive and tough. In...

  10. New Supercharger for 2.5(all engines)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Yes its electric! But this thing is no joke! I have had it on about three weeks and had it on a dyno this past Thursday. This is by far the best bang for buck mod. I thought the msds header was pretty impressive but this thing is the $hit. This is my first post here mainly because I have had...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Direct injectors in Skyactiv engines. You can tell that it's very organized in distributing the fuel in specific locations in the cylinder. And it's pretty neat to watch. Especially the range of pulses that they operate at in this test. Go injectors go! Bet that would make a questionable...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    SO I am in sweden visiting my mom this week, and I got this crazy idea :yes:.

They have 5 engine alternatives: a 1.6, 2.0 i-stop, 2.0...
