Posting Information...

Best Way To Get Information Posted Here

PARTS
If you have a mod part or a part you recommend for this forum it would be great if you can post the information in the following format. Just makes it easier for me just to verify the information and get is post right away. I will not post website or links that are not forums. This is a pure forum information guide... You choose what you want and you find were to buy it. I have a section for the sponsors so I would go there first!

Name of part:
SITES: Weblinks of the forums of the product.

Example:
CP-E MAFci Cold Air Intake:
http://forum.mazda6club.com/3-0l-v6/141650-review-cp-e-intake-mafci-system-6s-mtx.html
http://forum.mazda6club.com/3-0l-v6/147940-cp-e-headers.html


RECOMMENDED FORUMS
For forums that you like and want to see posted. Please post where you will like the forums and a link to the forum. If the forums applies to the V6 and is important to our community I will review the forum and post it.

Example:
Headers
MSDS HEADERS OR CPE HEADERS

NEW SECTIONS
If there is a section that you would like to see added just use the format of the RECOMMENDED FORUMS. I will evaluate it and see if it is important to our community I will review the forum and post it. If there is a forum that you would like to see here and can’t find it anywhere, please start the forum and if fits what this one is about I will post it here.

TO ALL
I will try to review all posts on a daily basis. If for some reason I choose not to add your post, I will let you know why and the reason for not adding. This forum is strictly to help everyone find out where to go to get information. This is not a forum for debate about what it is best. I do encourage all to help with this post. There is a lot of information out there and it would be great to have a central location to find it all.​

Nice list.

I added Nautilus headers for the '06-07 guys.

My only gripe is the choice of black text. It makes it very difficult to read for those of us that view the forum with the "Dark" skin setting. See the attached image to see what I'm talking about.

I reformatted it so that the text defaults to "Auto" so that it changes to the proper color for whatever skin that you are using. I also added a title line above the forum links. This helped readability of the dark blue or purple links. Because of my OCD, I made some other small changes too. I hope you don't mind...

Thanksman... i did not even know aout the Dark Skin option. It's now formated for best viewing on all skins. I like the small changes you made. I made even more changes myself. Like i said before this is a work in progress. Any help to make it look better and to continue to update it is greatly appreciated. A lot of information will continue to go on here... Again Thanks,
David...

Nice list. I thought TGNY already made a thread like this. Maybe that was on "the other site".
Awong,

This is the site you are talking about
Stage 1 to Boost (This is a great forum for recommended stage mod)
N/A power mods - stage 1 to boost - 6Crew.com Forum

That is strickly for modification. This forum is different. This forum is about everything for the mazda and a place were you can find debates on some of the subjects and see what you want to do. It's just an overall forum were you can find all kinds of goodies for the mazda. Not just performance information. I included all kinds of DIY, debates, and a broad range of information.

i got the idea from what TGNY did. I have his link posted on the site. If your looking to do mods on your car and what to find what is recommended and see the different stages of modding your car I would go there. If you want information on everything about the V6 you come here.

Awesome list. Though you might want to go through the links one more time, as some of them seem broken. There seems to be a few.

Great work and awesome post, Im a new 6 owner and this is definitely something I've been wanting to find in regards to what I can do to the car, Thanks a lot!

p.s. Would be possible to write a little something about where to buy new engines or what engines could fit in this car, given that modifications will have to be made for, but it would really help to know where new engines could be found because I've tried google, craigslist, ebay and no luck at all except for the 2.3L
