  1. Pedal lag

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Anybody notice gas pedal lag on the Mazda 3? I had my foot to the floor and it took like 1-1.5s before the car reacted and downshifted. Note that I did this progressively and there was significant lag. If I mash the pedal then it will downshift a lot quicker. I know I can use Sport mode but I...
  2. Weird engine sound with lag.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey! So I recently replaced my engine filter, after I did, the engine was making an unusual noise. After about a week of driving the car began to make the noise every time I accelerated and felt like it was struggling. I checked to see if I put the filter in upside down or if there was anything...
  3. 2012 Skyactiv Throttle lag

    2012-2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I got a Peddle Booster for my skyactiv, worked with speedmotive.com , a guy named Lorenzo. They don't specifically make one for the skyactiv but he got the right harness and box. Installs easy and what a difference. My car is much more fun to drive
  4. Lag on fast acceleration

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum. I have the 3 2.2 sport Nav skyactiv. And I'm loving it so far. I've noticed something though that only happens every so often. Sometimes when I accerate hard when changing up a gear, there is a very slight lag in power when I engage the next gear. It only...
  5. Throttle lag

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I have a 2015 sGT with a manual transmission and I have a huge problem with throttle response. I feel like there is a huge lag from hitting the gas pedal and then giving the engine gas. Is there a way to fix this? I notice it most when down shifting and rev matching... I cannot rev match to save...
  6. Shifting/drive train lag with aftermarket RMM

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Picked up my '10 Speed3 at the end of March. Just changed oil for the first time and saw I have a CP-E RMM. This actually leaves me confused because I have a decent lag/movement/something that makes a mess of shifting....that all along I assumed was the stock RMM still being there. Is there...
  7. Skyactiv Automatic Transmission downshift lag

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hi everyone, my brother bought a 2012 Mazda 3i skyactiv - 6sp automatic half a year ago. And ever since then i noticed the car is very slow to downshift. It always shifts to the highest gear possible and doesn't downshift unless you press the gas pedal down about 2/3 or more. Which i think is...

  10. Shifts seem to be 'tightening up' with decreased lag on 5-sp AT

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Something I have been experiencing lately that is pleasing and at least partially helping to counteract post-manual remorse is that I have noticed that manual up-shifts in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears seem to have tightened up considerably since I got the car 5k miles ago. I initially thought the...
