More torque

784 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  JoeMini
I have a 07 Mazda 3i with a rebuilt 2.0-liter engine in it. Don't get me wrong, I love hp, but I love torque more. Is there anything I can do to get more torque out of this small engine?

Thank you for your time,

Hey Dan, it depends how far you want to go. Changing exhaust cam, headers, and cat all give decent bump in torque. The 2.0 L series block can fit the 2.3 L3 head or equivalent ford duratec which helps too. A stroker kit is the best way through, from factory the sp23 L3 engine is basically a stroked 2.0 which has better torque.
