    Default Hi. First time mazda owner. Gen2 MPS3..

    Hi everyone.

    First time Mazda owner, however I work for a Mazda dealer so they're not really unfirmiliar with me..

    Just took delivery of my brand new mps last week and loving it so far

    gets the windows tinted on friday but other than that im not looking at doing much else to it, I've got a skyline that I spend my money on to have fun in.

    Will get some better pics once the storms are over here in adelaide and I wash it again.



    cheers

    thanks for the welcomes

    skyline is an old r31 silhouette.
    not the best of pictures, i think facebook kills the quality a bit. taken from skyline nationals 2010 where i won a trophy for runner up best modified r31


    look forward to learning more about the aftermarket side of things for my mps from here. already found a link to mps garage.com.au and really considering a cold air intake and exhaust for the mps now. hmmmm.... damn mod bug.

    Welcome aboard!

    Hope you're loving the new MPS. As with Col; I'm also ex-Adelaidian who fled to the tropics of Cairns.

    Perhaps Col and I can form a new faction of the MPS Club: The MPS Adelaide Expatriates!

    Enjoy the forums; there's plenty of people here who would love to help you with mods etc.

    You'll need to be a little careful with the Gen 2's as they can be cantankerous little beasts for throwing CELs. Moreso than the Gen I's.

    Having said that, there are a number of 'tried and true' options that are available. There are also some very good options that you don't even have to go overseas for, such as Troy's (2XS/CES Racing) products.

    Best place to start is to have a trawl through the forum and decided what you want to do from there. There's a heap of stuff on different intake and exhaust options that are CEL free on the Gen 2's

    Outside of intake and exhaust, have you thought about other mods you might like to do? These cars really do respond well to engine mounts and short shift mods, and they're a good cheap place to start also.

    Have tonnes of pics on my photobucket site. Nice to see some interest in it, I love it but drive it probably 500km's per year. spends most of its life in the corner of the shed. Bit of a waste I know but Adelaide constabulary have already stickered it once before and I don't want to take the risk again. Mainly use it for Mallala and Collingrove hillclimbs.

    CEL = Check Engine Light

    There are plenty of intakes and DP's that won't throw CEL's and as Dan said 2XS (Troy) has some great products of which many members run with (including me) and have no CEL issues. Best of all, locally made here in QLD.

    Your R31 is very nicely done mate , immaculate engine bay!
