  1. Mazdaspeed6 front bumper and hood desperately needed

    Models / Trim
    Hey 6club...it's been a while. I have a rather urgent conundrum. I am in need of a new front hood, as it is rusting from the inside, causing nasty bubbling and a new front bumper as the clips have broken almost entirely on side. I will definitely have to replace the hood, but I have been...
  2. Clogged EGR...Seriously need some help (Or guidence)

    Mazdaspeed6
    I'm definitely down for that. I think I may attempt this either this Sunday or next. Things have been pretty sporadic for me as of late, but if you've got the time when I have the time, I'll definitely PM you and we can talk. Thanks again man.
  3. Clogged EGR...Seriously need some help (Or guidence)

    Mazdaspeed6
    Ah, okay then. I'll give that a shot then. Thanks. Probably not today though, but maybe this Sunday if all works out. I don't wanna sit on the code much longer. I probably should have had it cleared. Beyond that, another question is that I heard brake cleaner is just as good as parts cleaner...
  4. Clogged EGR...Seriously need some help (Or guidence)

    Mazdaspeed6
    Okay, so today, I finally got the code. I was really hoping I could have afforded to get an OCC and the EGR delete before I had to deal with this, but money is tight and times is hard. <_< Needless to say, before I get blasted with "do a search, you'll find what you need" kind of responses, I...
  5. Weird whining noise

    Speed6 Engine/Drivetrain
    Well, looks like Malcolm was just seriously paranoid. lol. It was my heat shield resonating with the engine. It probably loosened up while I was driving it. *shrugs* Thanks for the help though everyone.
  6. Weird whining noise

    Speed6 Engine/Drivetrain
    I believe everything's in order, but I guess I should have it checked. Normally driving or at idle, there's nothing to speak of. She's even ordinary when she makes the noise. It's only at high rev generally. Any gear. I should be able to have a video up when my girlfriend gets back home. I'm...
  7. Weird whining noise

    Speed6 Engine/Drivetrain
    I'm hoping I put this in the right location, but none the less, my problem. I got my MS6 in January, and had no problems. I got a bit of a heavy right foot but learned quickly that $3.47 a gallon isn't very cheap, so I've very much so moderated my driving habits. <_< Needless to say, a couple...
  8. Update on driving the MS6 'Bianca'

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Lol. Wow, that's funny. It's weird though. Not to blow smoke up my own ass, but I'm a very quick learner. I've had my MS6 about 2 weeks too. Just yesterday, I was faced with a super steep hill on my way to work. To make it worse, I was first in line and some dude in a 4-Runner was in my ass. I...

    Thanks. I really appreciate it. :]
  10. Update on driving the MS6 'Bianca'

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Well, it's been about a solid 2 weeks since I started driving her. My first post, I was pretty much talking about the how attractive the car is and barely being able to drive it. (First Post: http://forum.mazda6club.com/mazda6-atenza/258566-just-got-my-ms6-bianca-home-sorta.html#post3487164)...
  11. Just got my MS6 'Bianca' home...Sorta. :/

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Yeah...that sounds about right. lol.

    Probably not till I'm old and fat...well...fatter. lol.
  13. Just got my MS6 'Bianca' home...Sorta. :/

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    lol. Thanks guys. I was pretty proud of myself for a moment. It's fun having so much control of the car. It feels so much more involved. :rolleyes:

    Well, to everyone who's gonna read this, I actually had some help from my best friends dad today. He's got a 05' Altima 3.5L and he drives stick. He told me to give him 2hrs and he'd have me down pat on the basics. He was right. I didn't even stall once today. As for boosting in low rpms, that's...
  15. Just got my MS6 'Bianca' home...Sorta. :/

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Thanks a lot for the encouragement. That burning clutch smell really throws me off though. The biggest thing for me is worrying about the crappy mounts that everyone complains about. I don't wanna stall hard and potentially break something. I'm seriously determined to get it though. Especially...

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Thanks all. What is still relatively new to me is turbo. Now, I know boost comes on demand, but how do you keep out of boost under 3000K? Like, it wouldn't be in boost unless you're hammering it. Right? (Sorry for the lack of knowledge. I've driven N/A's all my life. lol)
  17. Just got my MS6 'Bianca' home...Sorta. :/

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Yeah, I can say that I've confided in going neutral when coming to a stop. Downshifting came easy to me. I just gotta get used to the revs on the 6. I used the auto-manual on my Eclipse and got used to shifting at specific points. I'm at least glad I can still shift at the 3K rev mark in the...

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    @Mr. Smoke Thanks man. You've been seriously helpful bro. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to set my clutch aflame. It sounds scary. lol. Also, thanks for the tip. I figured it wouldn't be advisable. It only takes me a couple of seconds to back out anyways.
  19. Just got my MS6 'Bianca' home...Sorta. :/

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    @block8head thanks man. lol. To everyone else, I drove her today after I got off work and did pretty damn good. Only stalled out 3 times. I even got a good run to push her. She is ridiculously fast! I say give me a week before I'm pretty solid on the basic stuff. On that note though....for...
  20. Just got my MS6 'Bianca' home...Sorta. :/

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Actually, not too far off. Just a lot less smoke. >_> I quickly rushed over and told him to put it in neutral, pull the parking break and to get the hell out of my car. lol
