    Hi All
    Long time no see. Recently got myself a Mazda 6 MPS, nice big brother to our Turbo Diesel Mazda 3. Same colour as well, quite torquey for a 4 cylinder I thought. Car is currently fully stock, it does have one of the generic aftermarket chinese headunit addon things that are around on eBay, and works surprisingly well. Also connected to a reverse camera with LEDs which comes in handy, actually had to use them at one point. Anyway, generic template time:

    Model: 2007 Mazda 6 MPS

    Colour: Black

    Bodykit: 6MPS Bodykit - Very Subtle

    Engine Type: 2.3L Turbo MZR DISI Engine

    Engine Mods: Short Ram Intake and Turbo Inlet Pipe, Turbosmart Dual Port BoV, JBR Engine Mounts, HDi Front Mount Intercooler, De-Cat exhaust

    Gearbox: 6 Speed Manual & AWD

    Brakes: Stock

    Suspension: Stock

    Wheel/Tyres: 18" RX8 rims with shitty black paint - 235/40R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE003s

    Stereo: Aftermarket chinese ebay headunit addon thing with GPS/USB input and Bluetooth, 2 x 12" Alpine Type R Subs with 1000w mono amp




    EDITING IN PICS CAUSE PHOTOBUCKET IS A POS

    Cheers Kyle

    Pics don't work for me either :(

    But one the guys here at work has one of these, and has done a few mods to it, goes pretty well.
    Also: 20" CX9 rims - look into it.

    Yeah, have been told on another forum pictures don't work, weird for me I can see them. Dropbox is annoying, will use photobucket as per usual and edit the first post. 20" CX9 rims hey, will have a look. Also I'm guessing the last picture of exhaust did work?

    edit; have edited the pictures.

    Exhaust one worked oddly enough. I would look at bracing as well. Eliminates all the usual issues they have.

    Hey Frogsta,

    still got the 180 or did that go too ?

    i was actually looking into these recently but decided on something else, thinking about posting it up but not sure hwo much hate i'll get :p

    the mazda 3 mps are actually faster than M5 Beamers from 80-120 :p they're pretty impressive.

    also have seen with these the gearbox mount seems to flog out! so be careful of that.

    Considering an MPS can't pull away from an old 540, I doubt it'd take a M5.

    Probably should have specified 4th gear.

    80-120 km/h in 4th gear
    4,3 s - Mazda3 MPS [2006, 260 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,3 s - Dodge Viper SRT-10 [2005, 506 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,4 s - Subaru Impreza WRX STi [2006, 280 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,5 s - Audi RS4 Avant [2000, 380 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,5 s - Jaguar XKR [2006, 416 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,5 s - Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG [2004, 612 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,6 s - Porsche 996 GT3 RS [2004, 381 hp, Sport Auto]
    4,6 s - BMW M6 Cabriolet [2006, 507 hp, Sport Auto]

    Who would take off from 4th gear @ 80km/h any real world situation, I'm so confused by those figures lol

    Yeah it was a direct link to the image i found online, you mean like chassis bracing or struts/swaybars? Definitely investing in swaybars, will be done with diff mounts

    Yeah, 180sx was gone a good 6 months ago, blew two engines. I had heard the 3MPS are quicker from 80-120 than a VE Clubby but that was about it

    Gearbox is actually really short, weird the figures say sports auto because MPS only come with 6sp manual gearbox. 1st goes to 60, 2nd to 100, not sure about 3rd+ but turbo runs out about 6k rpm so could possibly be 4th, woulda thought 3rd at 80 though. 6th at 100km/h sits at 2.5k rpm which is higher than I would like but then again hitting 10L/100km and haven't been driving like a grandma at all. Will have to see about a boost gauge in there stockies haha, though I've always prefered pillar or dash gauges

    with dropbox links you have to put them in the public folder and copy the public link

    i dont mind the mazda 3 or 6 they have some tang for what they are. like you say the gearbox is pretty short.
    missus Mazda 3 runs at bout 3k at 110km/h but it doesnt feel over revving like a commo running at 3k

    Yeah, they are eseentially what I was looking at, seen that page on ozmps before. Guy on Facebook added me as he deals with turbine tech and can do some deals for me and such

    Ah fair enough, our Mazda 3 is Turbo Diesel, 6sp and sits at about 1.8k rpm at 100km/h pretty happy with the economy

    Removed all the baffle and resonator from the airbox, had a nice day out for the WA Japanese Car Community cruise last weekend. Happened to be a couple more MPSs there;

    And I know they're chrome with whitewalls, but getting these rims delivered in a couple weeks, new tread too --

    Likely going gloss black when money allows.
