Anybody know of an aftermarket hood with hood scoop?or maybe even a subtle body kit
Please please PLEASE let the speed look like this.Haven't seen any aftermarket scoops for the 2014/15 Gen3s yet.
Sure you've already seen it, too; but here's Theophilus Chin's rendering of the Gen3 Mazdaspeed (just for ideas):

Eh, cars aren't what they were 30 years ago.Considering the length of the hood, I'd bet there is a fair amount of weight in it that could be removed via a carbon fiber design. Eventually I'd hope to see one.
Mazda went to an aluminum hood on the new Miata so hopefully this is a sign of things to come... although I'd prefer if they went carbon fiber instead at least on the next Speed 3I wish Mazda would have just done the stock 3 hood in aluminum. The weight difference would be significant, although it would jack up production costs substantially.
FWIW, the 2nd gen RX7 turbo (in my avatar picture) has an AL hood, which is significantly larger than the hood on my 3S GT, yet when lifting them you can definitely feel the weight difference between the two.
well it could.. especially for the short ram intake. i dont see anywhere feasible that sucks in air for that if you've gone aftermarket. and for those with a cai, there's that fog light blocking it.I'd love to see a grill or hood with a scoop in it. Even if it doesn't add much to the performance, it'd definitely make it look more sporty.
Try ebay I put dual scoops on My 2016 Mazda 3 hatchback they are for show only when I add a turbo I intend to add a fiber glass induction that looks like the ones on Camaro's I already have it and the shop that is going to install it is going to modify it to fit my Mazda it will be a one of a kind like the dual scoops I have now. Check out my Pictures let me know what you think.Hood scoop
Does anyone know where I can get a hood scoop like this or get someone to make it for my 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback.
