I have a 03 mazda 6i atx with the electronic shifter so you can shift it yourself but just no clutch sadly. ive been messin around with it lately and installed a shrot ram intake which so far is doin a good job off adding some pick up i took out the back seat and put some speakers and put a magnaflow performance exhaust on it. i was just wonderin if its pointless to keep doing stuff to this car because i want a fast car that i can fun with and not really have to worry about other 4 cylinders smokin me so would anyone suggest buying just another car or can i make this one pretty quick and fun so far the only car i really lost to was my friends eclipse but he has so much shit done to it.

Well,

If you wanted a fast 4 banger.. You chose the wrong car LoL.

Just dropping down 4 grand for a turbo will only get you to around 250hp or so......I mean. Dude, it's a 4 dor family sports sedan.

This car can be alot of fun though, But not in the way you are thinking. Screw fast going straight, Take it to the curves and have some real fun.. Then you don't need to worry about going 180mph or whatever..

as of now. you are putting down around 130-140hp tops... so yeah.. it's not an Evo or STI thats for sure lol

as i've always said, the short ram has always been my favorite intake. unless you are in traffic, you won't feel any loss in power, and the sound is so much better (for me at least).

...as far as the car goes. i own a '03 6i atx ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

if you wanted to go faster then any four banger hedcis is correct. Way wrong car. our cars are not ment too go super fast. Some peoples cars on here like mr tea are at the pinnicle of performance with the current platform with out going was crazier you know. If you wanted to bet any other four banger you needed something with a few more cylinders dude. anyways if you decided that going faster though corners are your thing that might prove too be better then anything. But its all about enjoying what you are doing any make it your own while doing it. Good luck

I don't know what your financial situation is, but I wouldn't waste time with bolt ons unless you like the sound or the look. I'd save the money you're spending on these mods that only add a very small amount of power, and put it towards the purchase of a fast car. Now if you're thinking about a turbo and can afford to do it right (and by right I mean full engine /tranny build-up and tune) then by all means keep the car and save up (or try to get sponsors). But IMO, it'll be far cheaper and much less of a headache to just trade or sell your current car and purchase one you'll be happy with from the get-go. The good news is nowadays they're pretty affordable.

Anything possible.
If you wanna spend nearly 25K to get real beast - just PM me and I'll describe you everything what will be at car when I'll finish it.
If you planning just to build something fast - you will stop nearly to 10K.
If you planing car just for fun - you will end at 5-6K
So there is NO cheap mods. 1hp cost nearly 50-80$

i know what he meant, but it has yet to be done on a CAN setup. he sounded sure of what he was doing, not trying something. good luck with it, hopefully it works.
