Thread: Hello OZMPS crew!!

  1. Default Hello OZMPS crew!!

    Hey everyone, I am new member to this awesome forum/club..
    I have to say I am a tragic rotor fan and general Mazda supporter. Have had many rotors over the years but recently got myself a 2006 MPS6! whilst I love rotors and that mad brapping from a ported rotor, trying to live with that everyday is painful!
    I gotta say the MPS6 is a whole another level of, dare I say, sophistication that rotors just do not have.
    I drove an MPS3 before getting my red MPS6 and admit it felt quicker, but i like the fact the MPS6 is bigger and AWD which helps with our kids.
    The car had only done 40k and was an easy trade for my SP25, although I do miss the leather and Bose sound system - yes my MPS6 is only the povo pack.
    Anyway, i love reading all the info on here (already thinking of the basic intake and dump pipe mods) and am keen to catch up with other MPS owners in Brisbane.
    Cheers
    Andy

    We are on Northside at Kallangur. Kids love the car (boys aged 10 and 4) especially the roof mounted DVD player. Pretty funny driving around with Fast and Furious DVDs playing in the back. Not so cool when Diego or Thomas the tank engine is playing though, hehe.

    welcome to ozmps andy!!

    Well it's my 5th week with my car and I am still loving it!

    Due to some nasty scraping underneath the car last night whilst driving into the garage, my initial worries turned into joy as I found out that the car has an aftermarket exhaust!

    Now I know most of you are going "how can you not know this!" but to be honest cause it was low mileage and from a dealer I just figured it was stock, not to mention the tips are still small (1.5" or so), although the deepish tone of the exhaust is now a little more obvious. Will check further and take some shots for clarity.

    Also whilst looking under the car I noticed bright yellow Springs installed. I can only guess this means they are King Springs, product code is KMRL or something...

    Not sure if they are much lower than standard but the front bumper scrapes pretty easily. What springs were installed stock?

    Anyway, feel like a bit of a twat for not even checking these things earlier but stoked nonetheless!!

    Been having a few drags with mostly V8's and am pretty stoked with how it goes, but gotta say trying to get used to the short gear change from first to second. Being used to rotors it is definitely a change in driving technique!

    I notice that boost in 1st and 2nd is limited - feels flat acceleration when launching hard, not boosted - is this normal? does the hypertune (?) fix this?

    Thanks for reading, back to searching more of the car for other surprises (hopefully good ones!).... And of course driving it!

    Andy,

    I won't hold the fact that you're a Northsider against you seeing as you own an MPS .

    Correct, see the mods in my sig or on my thread. Boost is limited in the 3MPS in the lower gears, its not so bad in the 6MPS but I think it still is limited yes (not as bad as the 3). The hypertech removes this limitation and also improves throttle response. Great for the small yet efficient K04 turbo (of course, my other mods help as a whole package (exhaust, intake etc) Also, try building the revs and 'launching' off the line...if you're on boost when you launch...it won't feel flat trust me!!!

    With great power comes great fuel consumption...
