Modified Mazdaspeed 3 MPS MZR 2.3 liter DISI turbocharged engine with the following modification lists -
Performance – Turbo and Cooling
- Custom Performance Engineering Core Front Mount Intercooler – 2.25″ straightforward hard aluminum piping (reduce turbo lag) with higher thermal efficiency, colder intake air and pressure drop
- Custom Performance Engineering DISI Nviscid Pipe (turbo inlet pipe)
- KMD Tuning 2.0T FSI High Pressure Fuel Pump Kit with thicker CarboNitride coating and slightly thicker shaft for higher fuel pressure, provide up to 40% more fuel in the midrange.
- Turbosmart Kompact Plumb Back Blow Off Valve (Bypass Valve) - recirculates all excess pressure back into the intake system
- GrimSpeed Electronic Boost Control Solenoid 3-Port, allows you to tune the boost map in the ECU which allow us to run the maximum amount of boost at every given rpm which gives us more power and control throughout the range. (We can set 15psi at 3000-5000rpm range, and set 17psi at 6000rpm etc)
- Corksport SRI Power Series Short Ram air intake box to limit the intake of hot air
Performance – Engine
- Saikou Michi Stage 2 OCC oil catch tank to catch the burnt oil which escape from valve cover area and prevent it from re-entering the valve cover, PCV line and breather
- James Barone Racing (JBR) Thermal Insulating Intake Gasket Kit and Thermal Insulating Throttle Body Gasket and Coolant bypass kit to prevent unwanted transfer of heat thus reducing boost air temps and increasing horsepower

Mazdaspeed 3 MPS (2nd generation) with modified TWM Performance Short Shift Kits (short shifter), Moddiction Anvil 2 powder coated shift knob.
- James Barone Racing (JBR) vertically oriented mount transmission motor mount
- James Barone Racing (JBR) 1 piece vertically oriented passenger side motor mount 70a Durometer which is made of a solid 3 pound block of T6-6061 grade aluminum and custom Durometer urethane bushings to reduce drive train slop and better throttle response
- TWM Performance Short Shift Kits CNC machined in stainless steel and aluminum (short shifter) to provide more precise shifter with no play for direct and solid shifting action.
- Sure Motorsports Counter Shift (replacement for stock shifter weight, 70.4% less than stock shifter weight) to provide a lighter, more responsive feel, faster gear shifting and a hightened response throughout all gears.
- Sure Motorsports Shortcut (relocating the shifter cable mounting point closer to the center of the gear) provides shorter shift throughout all gears. Shortens the shock throw by 35.2%
- Sure Motorsports Anchors reduce the chance of missing a gear shift and provide more accurate, tactile shifting response by replacing OEM rubber grommets which make manual shifting soft and carelss
- Sure Motorsports Torq R3 rear engine mount (made of T6061 aluminum) decreases engine movement (reduce NVH – noise, vibration, harshness), recouping torque, reduce wheel hop (the amount of free reign in the engine bay during spirited driving)
