    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I'm putting this here because it is a handling/structural topic, yet it deals with the interior. As some of you may have read in my previous posts, I wish I had the hatch model right now for transporting some equipment I have on a regular basis. I decided that it would not be a good idea to...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    I have a stock 2010 MS3. I've noticed in 3rd I can get to full boost somewhere around what feels like half throttle. Between that point and flooring it to WOT it doesn't seem like there's much increase in acceleration. Is this normal? Thanks!

    I have been doing some reading, and it seems to me that if you add an air intake, you increase your miles per gallon by 1-2. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I'm looking to get the most mpg out of my vehicle.
