    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide

  2. 2012 Mazda 3 grand touring - starts in on

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Probably a stupid question, but here I am asking it anyway. So basically what the title says. When I turn the ignition key to start the car, the key only makes it to the "on" position before the starter engages. The computer engages the starter until the engine starts then disengages the...

    Engine / Drivetrain
    HELLO So, I have done lots of research for my car on ways to get extra Horse and options are clearly limited for my car.

  8. Just bought the 2.5 2018 grand touring MT

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    To keep things short this car is such an upgrade from the sport for not too much more with all of the incentives Mazda is offering currently. I am planning to do axel back exhaust, an OVtune and also getting better tires and sway bars. I’m hoping to get factory power down to the wheels and...
  9. Upgrading, 2.0 Sport to 2.5 grand touring

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So to answer a question I’m sure much of you have, even though my 2.0 is tuned the 2.5 is still more powerful in the top end. My 2.0 currently has Headers, midpipe, axelback, and a SRI. It is tuned on 91 and e85 and although the 2.0 is faster to 60 the stock 2.5 just blows it out of the water...
