Thread: Mazdaspeed 3 owners!

  1. Cool Mazdaspeed 3 owners!

    Hey guys,

    New to the forum, curious to know who has a Mazdaspeed 3 and what sort of mod's everyone has done around in the Perth Area?

    N3RDPWR? I suspect you've been researching like crazy if you're calling it a Mazdaspeed 3 on an Australian forum, haha

    But welcome mate. I'm sure somebody will chime in here with some pointers for you. In the meantime you can utilize the search function and see what you can find to help your query.

    Sorry, Oldskool researching back in the days where there wasn't many mods for them... CP-E hadn't even released the engine mount...

    Leon was pulling the engine out and putting it back in for me.

    The stock rods look like bananas....

    Yeah, was still running, I also broke my flywheel and was getting mass vibration. No damage to the engine other then those 2 things.
    All fixed now... except the fact the car drinks more oil then a Holden GenIII now.
