  3. Small mods to get a few extra HP

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I just got my 2016 Mazda3 i sport, and I was hoping to do a few things to give it a few more HP. I don't want to make it take a hit in MPG though. I was thinking of replacing the OEM air filter with an AEM one (we're at 48k miles now anyways), but does anyone have any other suggestions? What...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Was looking at my airbox and noticed there is some sort of mesh filter in the lid. Anyone know what this is and if I can remove it without affecting performance or smog? I've been trying to add photos but this site won't let me anymore without crashing since the update.

  7. Removing extra weight

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    So this weekend I had my wheels off and I noticed these things glued onto my rims and I had no clue what they were. I went to a tire shop and they told me they were weights. Wtf.. Why would anyone want to add extra weight. So, naturally, I removed them. To do this, go grab a knife or...
  8. Programming an Extra AKE System Key

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Does anyone have instructions or a link for programming an auxiliary key for the Advanced Keyless Entry system in the GT? I'm speaking of a spare chipped/transponder key - not a switchblade key, but the solid key that slides in and out of the AKE key fob.
  9. Extra port on steering rack

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and I have a question. I am in the process of replacing the steering rack in my 2008 Mazda 3, and noticed an "extra" port near the top of the valve housing on the new rack (capped off with a red plastic cap). The OEM rack has a similar indentation, but it is...
  10. extra set of USBs?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Is it possible to remove the cd player and add an additional set of usb ports and cigarette lighter? (like the 3i Sport) Has anyone tried this? I have a 3sT and having the usb port in the console is a bit restricting when charging my phone as I place my phone on a phone holder in the dash.

  14. i Sport vs. i Touring - is it worth the extra $?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm going to be buying a new 3 at the end of the summer. At first I was set on the i Sport, but am now considering the i Touring. I like that it has the aluminum wheels, my previous 3 had steel wheels/hub caps and found it to be quite ugly compared to real wheels. They even scraped on a few...

    I recently installed a remote start/alarm system and have no need for the switchblade key, I would like to just get a normal key cut to minimize the bulk of keys I have to carry. I've tried multiple locksmiths and no one has a transponder key that will work for my 2010 3. Does anyone know the...
