Hi, i am brand new to cars and i hear a lot of people talking about these words that i don't really know so if someone could explain what the item does or what it means/stands for that would be great, I tried googling a few of them but none of the pages really say what it is.

-CP-E Intake (and how much it costs)
-Bored out throttle
-flywheel

thanks in advance :)

CPE intake - cp-e.com or Therpmstore.com. It is the best intake for the mazda6

Bored out throttle body - Taking a dremmel wheel and removing some of the excess metal in the throttle body opening to make it larger and flow more air. The car compensates by adding more fuel and therefore making more power.

Flywheel - On a manual transmission car, the flywheel connected to the engine and the clutch is connected to the driveshaft (halfshafts in the 6). The flywheel spins with the engine and when the clutch is let out it meshes to the flywheel and spins the wheels. By lightening the flywheel, you reduce the amout of power that is lost by the engine having to spin the extra weight. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/clutch.htm

so something like this? http://www.therpmstore.com/product_info.ph...6f832b0b60ffaf9 isn't it a little pricey for an additional 10hp?

I have a few more beginner questions :),

Is NOS illegal?

Can it hurt your engine?

Does anyone have any recomendations on a turbo kit for a mazda 6i 2.3L? i found one that was about $3000-$4000, are all the turbo kits that expensive? Does anyone know of a place to get a turbo cheaper?

Is it hard to install a turbo, and can i get any turbo or are they specifically made according to the engine?

Thanks in advance :)
