hi ,
want to say hello to all mazda6 board members. just can't help not to drool over the new mazda6 . it kicks ass . what's the scoop about mazdaspeed6 2.4 I4 turbo ?? is it really comming out or what ? if it is, i just met me an expensive , hard to find new friend.
right now i drive an oldskool 6 . you know, it's 1st gen mx-6 hooked up dx. no its not a GT but its still fun to drive.

very kool site...if ya all don't mind i will tour around this site in search for some nice mazda6's just to please my eyes..heheh.. i don't know if you have ever check out mx6 related sites,but if you all get bored for some reason, stop by www.mx6.com and visit all the hard core sick sixers . there are some very fast 1st gen's with JDM engines (FE3) and custom turbos. turbo FE3s produce huge amounts for hp. They are capable of over 500hp with a turbo.

oh man , trust me i would but the only thing that kept me in this car was JDM engine (FE3). turbo FE3s produce huge amounts for hp. They are capable of over 500hp with a turbo.

like i said>>> what's the scoop about mazdaspeed6 2.4 I4 turbo ?? is it really comming out or what ? if it is, i just met me an expensive , hard to find new friend<<<.

i think i'll be hanging aorund for this one . i mean , mazda6 kicks ass don't get me wrong but mazdaspeed6 is worth making that huge monthly payment... oh yeah, no silver spoon in my mouth.

It's hard to say about the Mazdaspeed 6. There has been crazy rumours but as of yet I don't think there has been an official announcement by Mazda.

We know it exists, we've seen pictures of the car! I'm guessing it's just a matter of if there's a market for this car in the US. It costs a lot of money to import and market a car, and judging by the number of 6s that I see on the road, Mazda isn't doing all that hot on sales right now.

This is true. It doesn't help to launch a car in the fall, no one buys cars when winter's coming up...

Exactly but if they launched it with the damn hatch, I think more people would have bought the car.

AHHH!! That is an MX-6. Alwyas thought of it as a round two door sedan/hatch halfbreed..

That car was sold as Mazda 626 Coupé in Sweden. We have MX6 too but those are just the newer round cars...

About the MPS - is it really a 2.4? Thought it was a 2.3...

Welcome here by they way and congrats with beeing born with good taste :)

what specs ? do you mean 1st gen mx-6 specs ?


"AHHH!! That is an MX-6. Alwyas thought of it as a round two door sedan/hatch halfbreed.."

come on dude!!! some jap & euro spec 626 coupe have FE 2.0 DOHC 16 Valve engines . they can be madeto be turbo . mazda rally team used to race FE3T engines in early '90. they only made 26 of those cars. turbo FE3 are capable of huge HP . I 've seen some guy with over 500HP. yes , in that two door halfbreed car.
that's the only thing why i'm still hangin to this car, otherwise i would be driving the new mazda6 .

oh yeah , reason why ppl aren't buying mazda6 is b/c of Ford bad reputation. they think that Mazda is Ford .

No I was talking about the specs about the Mazdaspeed 6. I've heard over 300 hp and AWD but can anyone give me more?

..or even better . make it 2 dr coupe . that would make it 3rd gen mx-6.

blackbird , thanx and you re welcome . my car ain't all that fast . stock 1st gen mx-6 non turbo produces 110 hp and 130 ft/lb of torque . i've not dyno my car so i' can't say. estimates with all my modz :
135 HP and 150 ft/lbs .... this is only my guess it could be around 130HP .

now.. US 1st gen mx-6 turbo has 150 hp and 190 ft/lbs stock. with a chip , 3 inch exhaust, turbo controler they are around 220 HP.
mine isn't turbo. it could be if i do engine swap,.. but i rather save money for a new mazda6.

It reminds of a R32 Skyline in it's design somehow...

Some MPS specs (as I have heard them)
2.3l I4 280hp, 360 newton (265 lb. ft.)
AWD system with Active Torque Transfer System (ATTS)

Well that could be argued, but I'm gonna agree with you on that one.

Yeah I like the 32 and 34... The new one looks baaad and the R33 looks... timid.. Nothing in the 33's design says "agressive". Just a pices of lard... The R34 on the other hand... Yummy!! Only fault is that it has a large ass and that it illegal everywear... Or maybe thats good.. So I don't have to see them on the streets here knowing I will never have the money to have one :)
