Hey guys, just got my car in from Alabama (finally). Just wanted to share a few pictures with you guys and talk about what I want to do to her, maybe you all could give me some suggestions?

On terms of performance upgrades, here's what I've got in store:
  • Corksport Turbo (when it's released)
  • OrangeVirus Tuning
  • Axle-back exhaust (from either Corksport or Racing Beat)
  • Corksport SRI (until the turbo is released)
  • JBR or K&N drop-in filter
  • Intercooler if I can find one that works?
  • Lowering kit, either Eibach or maybe Corksport - any advice on this decision?

Cosmetically, I'm looking at:
  • Blacking out the car by plasti-dipping the rims and trim
  • Tinting the windows to the legal limit (I'm in Oklahoma so here it's 25%)
  • Maybe an aero kit? Not sure yet
  • Possibly mudflaps, would be tough deciding between Rokblokz or RallyArmor
  • Headlight and taillight vinyl tint

For anybody wondering, she's a 2017 Mazda3 Grand Touring 5-door, and she's Jet Black Mica. She doesn't have a name yet, but she will soon! :)

Congratulations on your new ride. Looks great. Some nice mods there but I think you will be waiting a long time for a turbo kit. Otherwise some cool mods. Good luck and keep us updated.
This.

I totally hear you guys. I think the wait will definitely be a year or two (at minimum) for the 3rd gen turbo from Corksport. They did announce the development of it on August 31 on their blog. I'm too new here to be able to post links, so maybe somebody else could do that?

I think I'll just stick with the SRI for now, though...
