    Racing a Mazda 3 Gen 3

    Hey everyone, I'm wondering if anyone has taken their Gen3 Mazda3 to the track. Whether it be autocross, circuit tracks, drag racing etc. I have a 2018 Mazda3 GT automatic, I was wondering what sort of "weak links" the car might have ie. Maybe the transmission gets to hot after extended driving...

    worried about low profile 18" rims on 2018 mazda3 touring-rough ride/weird size

    Hey not sure if you've already picked new tires as this post was months ago, but if you're worried about ride quality you could always go to a 205/50R18 or a 215/50R18, those tires are only 1.8% and 3% larger overall diameter respectively and should both for very easily without any rubbing. The...

    P0090 - Fuel Pressure Regulator 1 Control Circuit ?

    VICS, VTCS, FPR, EGR should all be the same, the vacuum lines are just hooked up differently. I've replaced 3 of them so far. And have two or three spares from parts cars left. The purge solenoid is that one that's different, as it is pulse width modulated rather than just opened and closed...

    Forged Internals - Wiseco Pistons, K1 Rods, ARP Studs

    The only reason I don't already own these is because I don't have my engine apart yet. I'm not sure if I'll need .020 over or not. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Anyone re-fill battery water?

    The battery in my Protege ES was a factory Mazda Panasonic battery. I topped it up once, which extended its life another year, in total it lasted for 15 years. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Adjustable Cam Gears Tuning

    Do you have a dyno sheet showing your gains. That's a good gain for a simple loosen and tighten of the intake gear. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Adjustable Cam Gears Tuning

    I believe that the Turbo and NA cams are the same. And by 4deg I mean that they come standard with 4deg of overlap. FSD7 intake and exhaust cams. If you google FS DE engine specs and go to the second link (FS Engine/Revisions/Cam specs) you'll find a lot more information there. Sent from my...

    Adjustable Cam Gears Tuning

    If you have the factory cams there is not much room for adjustment, as they only provide approximately 4deg of overlap, adding more overlap will provide better high end power in theory, as long as the cams have enough duration. If your cylinder head has not been machined, or has only been...
