Nicely done. Did you add the turbo kit after spending time with the normally asperated car? If so wht did the turbo do to the power band ( yes I know lots more power) but as a daily driver does come on about to same or ? Been giving some thought to doing the same to my mx5 copy (4 cyl Z3) Thanks.

It's a factory turbo, but the stock setup was so choked, it didn't hit full boost until 5000rpm. Felt naturally aspirated, then afterburner effect. Car was difficult to drive at the limit, but fine on the street. Opening up the breathing, and fuel system added about 50whp, but made the power delivery much smoother, full boost at 3500rpm.

Thanks, sounds like the final outcome ( 3500 peak, 50 whp) would work very well. Living in Ca the turbo is do-able but what sounds like required intake mods would be the sticking point ( CARB ) Cal air resource board compliance is a touchy thing. Thank you for the reply

2016 Mazda 3. Not the car I really wanted, but the car that's best suited for my job right now...and either way I love it. It's a great car. Could use more horsepower (much more, but that's just me), but it's a great ride, comfy, handles well and the sound system is pretty good.

I agree with the need to have a manual transmission. Just nothing like driving with one. Getting into an automatic feels like you're 'riding' instead of really driving. I managed to snag the last 5-speed in the NE when I purchased my Passat. Just so much more engaging.
