Hey guys. New owner and new to forums. I have looked through them before for my previous cars. Anyways, I own a 2014 mazdaspeed3. Love the car and the torque that comes with it. I am looking into upgrading a few items on the car (engine, suspension, and performance). I just don't know where to start or what to do to the car. I looked into stage upgrades for the car but didn't find any that would fit the 2014 model. So I thought I would reach out to the mazda community and seek your guys' input. Glad to be a part of the community. Thanks.

Welcome to the site!
Lol yeah there isn't a 2014 speed3. You either have a 2014 mazda 3 or a 2013 mazdaspeed3. I'm assuming you got the year right. With that said, if you have a SkyActiv engine there are virtually NO upgrades for the engine other than intake and exhaust neither of which will amount to extra power. Suspension upgrades are available and those alone will improve your performance and handling. With a manual transmission you will have quite a few more options than with an automatic. Hope this helps and congrats on the new car, Mazdas rock!

I was really close to buying a black 2013 ms3 with tech package. I hope you enjoy your car, they sound like a lot of fun. im sure theres plenty of mods but suspension stuff is usually great for appearance and actually feeling a difference, the motors pretty strong stock.
