    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi folks, I'm coming from a world where I gotta break out the grease gun on the 4x4 and shoot some lube in the driveshaft/ball-slip-u- joints every oil change. Are there any zerk fittings I can/should be lubing up? Plan to keep this car for my wife in the long run..
  2. Howdy, long term owner from BC with a question!

    Hey everyone, I've had my 2004 2.3L MT for around 5 years now and i've been enjoying it for the most part.

  7. Long term fuel trim after cpe SRI and CS TIP install

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    My stock LTFT at idle was about -3%. After installing cpe SRI and CS TIP, my LTFT is now +7% at idle. I'm pretty sure all my connections are tight. A couple of connections that may be suspect are the silicon hose on the TIP which I was afraid to really clamp it down so I don't crip the TIP...
