    I have a GX model (Canada), I think it's the SV-i in US, 2.0L manual transmission. That base model doesnt have a tachometer, so I shift by the engine sound.. It works well but it constantly bugs me not to know at what RPM Im shifting during spirited driving / acceleration.. Can somebody tell me...
  5. RPM at Idle

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    What's the rpm you guys are seeing when you're idling? For me, probably seeing a bit over 1k on a cold start. After warming up and driving for about 15-20 minutes, I'm seeing maybe 600-700 at a stop. Maybe after an hour-ish, it stays closer to 500. It doesn't stall or shake, just thought idling...

  8. Low idle RPM's? 2.0 non skyactive

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I'm not sure if this is considered normal for idle RPM's. I installed a CS CAI about a month ago which has given me a CEL (I'm waiting on their call back regarding this issue) but ever since I installed the intake Ive been paranoid that this was happening because of it. Also, once or twice the...

  12. Venting - not much torque or power below 3500 rpm

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Okay, I've been driving for a week on Mazda 3 2.0L Skyactiv hatchback I-Touring 6spd. Pros: in driving feel - VERY good gas mileage - Smooth shifting feel - Very forgiving clutch - very neutral cornering feel for a front drive. Cons: (as I perceive them) - No torque or power below 3500 rpm...
