    Hello, I’m currently in the process of boosting a 2006 Mazda 3 with the 2.3L. I was wanting to know if anyone has done this before and any tips & tricks. I heard you can only run on 8psi on stock internals but I’m currently running on 10 pounds. Will this harm anything in the motor?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    I am in the market for a turbo charger for my 2.0L 2008 mazda 3. How should I go about doing this? What brands, how much should I spend, bolt on or no? How much boost is safe for stock engine parts, etc. I would like horsepower comparable to mps/speed3's if possible. Thanks.
