Thread: MPS 6.... Thought id give it a go!

  1. Default MPS 6.... Thought id give it a go!

    Hi all,
    This is actually my very first Mazda. Thought i would go straight for the best Mazda produced! the Mazda 6 MPS.
    I have had plenty of other performance cars in my time, but from what ive heard and read about the MPS, it sounds like a mighty fine automobile.
    It may not compare in straight line acceleration as my last car, FPV Typhoon, and it may not handle anywhere near as good as a Honda S2000 i used to own.
    But it had Awesome performance, all round, it had Luxury, a great standard sound system.
    I'm very happy with my purchase so far.

    ....and ive already been looking for a few little upgrades to make a brilliant car into an even better car!

    MPS3 > MPS6 (gotta stick up for the 3's!!!)

    what made you sell the typhoon? am rather partial to the turbo 6's in fords, can generate some serious RWKW in those things with just a little bit of tweaking even if the fuel economy isnt that great...
    enjoy the new car and the forums! it's a great community here
    there are a couple of big write ups that people have in regards to mods on 6's here is one of them: http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/membe...ips-ideas.html

    Welcome mate. I love my 6 and am a little partial to Ford 6T as well but they don't feel that special to sit in.

    Enjoy it!

    Welcome mate and congrats on you're purchase. Not sure on the handling on a S2000 but I assume its pretty good, but throw the MPS 6 into a few corners and she comes out laughing I usually find, unless she wishes to go sideways then no-one is laughing! lol The size of the engine and the turbo puts the Typhoon at an advantage, but again the AWD makes the mazda more of a fun all-year round kind of car. If you wish to look into a few mods check out the members ride section. I have a few mods on my car, but I've gone pretty easy. I wanted to cut down from spending and do away from modifying the internals and the likes. If you want some ideas or just a look click on the "RR" link below in my signature if you wish.

    Hope you enjoy your ride and the forums!

    Welcome Justin. Interesting that you come from a Typhoon. A good gutsy name for a car. I'm fed up with all the nanny names that cars are given now. Now we get wuss names like Cherry, Sunny, Accord, Symphony, etc that all sound like a variety of biscuit. Whatever happened to Charger, Challenger, Avenger, Mustang, and so on? I think Dodge and Jeep are crap cars nowadays but at least they retain names like Calibre and Nitro.

    But I digress.....I spent some time chatting to guys at Turbotech, the main service and supply centre here in Perth - they just love the turbo'ed Fords!! - they told me get plenty in for turbo service as they don't have adequate lube to the turbo spindle and they are very short-lived. You won't have the same issues with the MPS6 as long as you let the turbo cool if you have been running it hard.
