The team at Velocity Factor was given quite a huge project from one of our loyal customers and long time friend of the shop, but of course, no task is too difficult for us to handle! We had previously installed a Snow Performance methanol injection kit along with a complete Stage 2 performance package on the 2007 Mazda MazdaSpeed 6, but he was unsure about wanting more power off from a larger turbocharger.
We took him for a ride in another customer’s MazdaSpeed 3 with the exact same turbocharger setup we recommended…and just like that, he was convinced! And so, his request was for Velocity Factor to install a larger turbocharger, larger downpipe and larger turbo manifold into his all-wheel drive performance sedan!
The process began by removing the factory components on the MazdaSpeed 6 that were to be replaced, including the factory turbocharger, downpipe and exhaust manifold with the more performance oriented aftermarket units. The factory turbocharger was replaced with a Garrett GTX3076R unit, the factory manifold was replaced with a Street Unit turbo manifold and the downpipe was provided by CP-E.
The exhaust pieces were then carefully ceramic coated for reduced exhaust temperatures within the engine bay before being wrapped with thermal exhaust wrap for additional cooling.
Finally came the installation process. As mentioned before, no task is too difficult for Velocity Factor to handle! The car is now ready to be tuned! Stay tuned for dyno results!
