  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So just this morning, I installed the AEM short ram intake with heat shield for my 2016 Mazda 3 2.0 liter. After driving 10 minutes to work, I smelled an odd burning smell from my engine bay. I’m not certain if I was doing WOT pulls, but it may have been close. Upon arriving to work, I lifted my...

    So, I've been reading some good reviews, and some bad reviews regarding SRI's on this forum. And I need a final thread to dictate myself. SRI's, are they good or bad for the 3rd Gen Skyactiv engine. Some say it increases horsepower by a small fraction, others say it doesn't. Is it merely for...

    Hello all! So I just recently bought a 2016 Mazda 3, and I have to admit, the Mazdaspeed 3 hood scoop is one of the most appealing features of that car, and I want it on my sedan. Are there any aero kit sellers that offer a hood with a functional hood scoop? Or will I have to cut, mold, and...

    Hey everyone, I’m new here. I’m going to pick up a used 2014 Mazda 3 i Sport this week. It has about 49k miles, and is the manual 6 speed model. To my knowledge it is all stock, but I’d like to put some work into it to pull some more hp out of it! It’s already super fun to drive, mostly looking...

    Hello I have been trying for some time to find an induction solution for the Mazda 3 which would offer some real performance improvements. Unfortunately, I wasn’t convinced by none of the solutions I could find online (particularly the SRAM solutions from CorkSport and K&N). However, just...

    I'm curious as to whether anyone in Australia has done performance mods to their mazda 3 and whether it is worth it for the price. I've been doing some research and it is known that costs in Australia are expensive compared to other countries when modding the BM / BN models. Even just getting...

    I've got a leased 2016 manual 2.0l that I'll be buying out in the next few months. I also happen to have some extra cash laying around, so I think it's time to make this baby faster. I'm thinking lowering springs+SRI+exhaust+plus ECU tune. What would you guys do? I have around $2k budget but I...

    We have a 2014 Mazda 3 and need to get new tires. It has Yokohama avid S34fv p205/60 R16's on it now. We like the performance but do you know of any tire that would have equal performance and be quieter? The road noise is pretty bad.

I own a 2014 diesel mazda 3 and I would like to improve it's performance. I am aware that there is not much to do on a diesel engine, but even simple improvements...

    So my question is, is the Mazda OEM Aero kit (or any kit produced for our cars in general) only for looks and stye? Or does it actually provides better airflow for less drag and better performance? Or the opposite is achieved, more drag, slower acceleration because of added weight , hence...
