Nice design, pleasing to the eye, and built for above-average performance, the Mazdaspeed 3 is an excellent tuning candidate that can be upgraded, stylized, and perfected to your precise specifications. But while there are many routes you can explore in regards to Mazdaspeed 3 upgrades , it is easier to upgrade if done in the proper order and even better by a professional, ensuring you avoid pitfalls on your way to establishing maximum performance for your ride. Please refer to our Do’s and Don’ts performance guide for more information. http://velocityfactor.wordpress.com/2012/05/23/velocity-factor-2012-mazdaspeed3/
Mazdaspeed 3 Air Intake
One of the great things about the Mazdaspeed 3 is that from the factory, the car is already expertly-tuned. With that said, there is always room for improvement, and the COBB SF Short Ram Intake with Air Straightener and Grid stands out as one of the most valuable performance auto parts upgrades for your vehicle. Why? Because the Cobb system utilizes several unique features in an effort to maintain optimal flow for performance while minimizing turbulence that can cause engine management problems. From a custom conical cloth air-filter element, Cobb uses a CFD-designed velocity stack leading to an unique air flow straightener grid. This straightener grid is specifically designed to smooth the incoming air flow as it passes the Mass Air Flow sensor for precise readings. This eliminates the “dead spots” experienced by other aftermarket intakes due to turbulence. NO other aftermarket MazdaSpeed intake system utilizes these critical design elements.
In order to provide a system that looks as good on the outside as the technical advancements happening on the inside, Cobb uses a one piece design constructed from a high temperature plastic composite. The plastic composite material offers heat rejection properties that help keep intake air temperatures cooler. In contrast, intake systems constructed using metal castings or piping can actually retain underhood heat and in turn heat the incoming air. Simply replacing it with the COBB Intake will allow your MazdaSpeed3 safe and consistent power gains!
Mazdaspeed 3 Exhaust Components
What can your Mazdaspeed 3 exhaust upgrade do for you? How about increased horsepower and torque? Or, maybe maximum flow, faster turbo response times, and power gains across the entire rev range? Investing in the COBB SS 3 Downpipe provides all of this and more, even helping to maintain a healthy environment thanks to a highly-efficient custom catalytic converter. With the factory downpipe on the Mazdaspeed 3 being an extremely restrictive element of the car’s exhaust, nothing says increased performance like a COBB SS 3 upgrade.
Mazdaspeed 3 Suspension
What is upgraded performance without comfort, convenience, and handling? One of the least-appreciated Mazdaspeed 3 performance parts is the upgraded suspension, offering improved handling and reduced body roll over your vehicle’s stock springs. H&R offers a high-quality alternative for your suspension; springs that don’t set or sag, and that were designed with strength, resilience, and durability as top priorities. In the end, you’re met with lowered center of gravity, aggressive appearance, and the best in available handling characteristics.
