Hey everyone. Just picked up a cheap 06 Mazda 3 5 speed hatch. Pretty sure I'm looking at the 2.5L engine swap, but otherwise this car is beautiful and drives great. Can't wait to start working on it.

Welcome Dalton63841! Happy modding to you.
Thanks! I wasn't originally planning on modding this car, but if it does in fact need an engine, it sounds like it's going to be a 2.5L Ford Fusion engine, with a Mazdaspeed3 throttle body, and I know I read that there's a newer model Mazda with the intake manifold that mates perfectly with the Ford 2.5, but I can't remember off hand what it comes from. Basically eliminating the need for adapter plates and dirty workarounds.
