VEHICLE STORY

I purchased my 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 on 8/3/12 with 25,314 miles on it. What attracted me to it is that it was a quick car that didn't look too flashy. The day I picked it up, it had koni yellow struts, hotchkis 32mm away bars, a cp-e cold air intake and a street unit top mount intercooler. Shortly after, I upgraded the high pressure fuel pump internals and picked up a cobb accessport v2b. That is when the mod bug bit. I ended up putting h&r coilovers, an Ultimate Racing downpipe, HTP3.5" intake, cobb front mount intercooler, and various other mods and got tuned for both 93 octane and also a 4/8 mix of e85. Before I knew it, it was December 2014, the car had 124k miles, and I had gotten very comfortable with the power it made. Shortly into december, I did a compression test which came back at 180+psi in each cylinder and decided to go BIG TURBO! This car is my pride and joy, and is probably the one thing that has helped relieve the stress of work, class, and other things...I absolutely love it.  Current mods include: -KW V3 Mazdaspeed accessory coilovers -32mm hotchkis front and rear away bars -Enkei Rpf1 17x8.5 +40 wheels -BFG Sportcomp2 245/40/1 tires -Precision 5858 Turbo with brand in/out -Cp-e vband exhaust manifold -precision pw46 4646mm external wastegate -Kozmic Motorsports Screamer pipe -custom 3" Catless downpipe and racepipe -Mazdaspeed Accessory 3"catback -Cobb v1 Front Mount Intercooler -PnP intake manifold with egr delete -Kozmic Motorsports primary egr delete -James Barone Racing Secondary egr block off -autotech high pressure fuel pump internals -Cobb AccessPort v3 -e23 Tune via AccessPort at 22psi by Realgib3 -Whiteline front and rear adjustable endlinks -HTP 3.5" intake -cp-e injector seals - cp-e rear motor mount -corksport passenger side motor mount - and many more parts I'm forgetting
