    I just updated to custom CAI 2 days ago. I've seen a noticeable improvement in performance and GPM. Is there any Mass Airflow Performance Sensor to get the most of the mod. I've been looking here and there but I haven't found any. My ride is a 2015-3
  2. Recommendations for a different RMM? (Current is a JBR 70)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi, I've put about 35,000 miles on my JBR 70 RMM, and the NVH is still just as bad as when I bought it. The mount makes my car straight up fun to drive, but I just can't handle the NVH anymore. I remember way back when, the electric focus rmm was a favorite for some people, how's that compare to...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Dear friends, I have been driving my 3 for almost 3 years now, and after an extended experience, I finally decided that some suspension upgrade might be needed.

  12. Lightweight exhaust recommendations for 2017 sedan?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I'm seeing lots of options for the hatchback, but not many for the sedan.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So I'm looking for a good sounding exhaust for my 2013 Mazda 3 i 2.0L. I'm debating between Corksport and Magnaflow. I want something that sounds like a preformance car not a ricer. Any suggestions? Pros and cons? Also what does it mean when they say the exhaust has a drone?

  17. Brake Recommendations?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey all, The wife has a 2012 Skyactiv and it desperately needs brakes. We do a lot of sub-40 mph driving in the car to and from work. For my beater (05 impala), I usually just get mid-range stuff from RockAuto, but for brakes they only have PowerStop. From what I can read online, PowerStop...
