Eh, you get what you pay for. IMHO, its pretty useless. Just spend the cash on rear sways.
That totally depends on your mechanical skill level and/or comfort with trying new things. When I bought my 6 I had never done any modding outside of basic audio system installs so I figured everything would need to be done by a pro. Well after doing my research I decided to do my own mods and while I haven't done anything spectacular, I have still done way more than I thought I was capable of. The first time I took off my bumper to install my HID's I was sweating bullets, however now that I've done it I realize it's no big deal. I think that only you can answer your own question.Hi, can someone tell me which mods a newbie can do themselves, approximately how long, or if it needs to be done at a auto shop, or dealership?[/b]
I think the idea of this sticky is to help us newbies but not necessary to hold our hands. Do some research and you'll find the information you're looking for.Also how much HP or torque each component will bring to the Mazda6 (seperate for 6i, 6s, and MS6 please).[/b]
what does optimized/bored out tb mean?I made this post for those starting out in mods, I thought this would be a good post to show what most of us modded 6's have done in order. Something a little bit like this. Thought this would be a good sticky for 1st mods and mods in general and where you can find them.
Optmizimg/boring out the throttlebody (the part in between the intake manifold and the airbox tube) means that you are increasing the overall diameter (since it is a circle) of the throttle body as well as shaving excess maeal off of the throttle plate itself. Because you are reducing the amount of metal inside the throttle body and making it larger, this allows more air to pass trrough the throttle body and into the engine, therefore creating more horsepower. :drive:what does optimized/bored out tb mean?[/b]
Since the Tanabe is just an axel-back, I would have to assume that it would fit both models.Hi I just have a question, I checked out the Tanabe Concept G exhaust but it didnt specificly state if it will fit the Inline 4 mazda6, so can anyone tell me that if that exhaust will fit the I4 mazda6?
Thank you! [/b]
Since the Tanabe is just an axel-back, I would have to assume that it would fit both models.
In all honesty, I really don't think that the Tanabe would be the best option.
Thier product quality is second to none and you would probably be very happy with the sound, but $590 is a lot to spend on an axel-back (however, this is coming from someone who is going to put the Greddy on their 6i because i'm a stubborn jackass [found the Greddy for $800 @ www.raceinspired.com])
If you want to find some more exhaust info, check out the exhaust compilation thread at the beginning of this thread.
That is, unless your like me and absolutly have your heart set on a certain exhaust.[/b]
