Title: New guy here with 2 Mazdas!!! Pics inside!
Post by: Frost881 on February 14, 2012, 11:50:50 PM
Evenin y'all

Just stumbled upon this forum and all i have to say is; why the hell couldent i have found this sooner?!?! This place is ballin!

If your on 6crew you may recognize my SN.  Just a mini intro; 21 Y/O college student from the SE Michigan area.  Been interested in cars as far bakc as i can recall but the Mazda bug dident hit me til i was 17.  Thats when I traded my 1992 Mercury Sable GS (beige & brown 2 tone, was the definition of a grandma car but it had the 3.8 liter essex V6 so it was a complete toqrue monster) for a shiney(er) used 07 Mazda 6i Hatch with a 5 speed auto (couldent find a stick) in a retin ascorching hue known as Bright Island Blue.


Some pics:

As far as mods go, theres really nothing too out of the ordinary; just your basic exhaust and intake bolt ons with some extras like a trans cooler to keep the ATX from bakin under race conditions and an AWR trans mount which i'm planning to replace with a new OEM unit when i get the time.  Chassis wise its more of the same, just a set of Koni sport shocks with MAZDASPEED hatch springs.  I've currently got some AWR front swaybar endlinks and some SPC cambeer adjustable ball joints awating instillation.  Powerslot Rotors and Hawk HPS pads do the braking duties along with ATE superblue fluid.

I've literally grown up with my 6...its taken me everywhere; back and forth to high schol and college, on road trips, to places i never even knew exhisted, and she's been with me through the ups and downs that come with life and has survived all of them.  I love this car. I'll never sell it...its been too much a part of my life and it would be like saying goodbye to a family member.

As many of you probably asertained from the pics, the 6 not only see's auto X duty but it has also seen open track time up here at Waterford hills raceway...which brings me to my next mazda:

This is a 1992 mazda MX3 RS

KICK ASS MAN!

That MX3 was a great find! You're going to have some serious fun with that.

There's a Mazda 6 wagon, 5 speed, in AA for sale for $2500 with what the guy says is a blown motor of some sorts... If I wasn't getting married in a few months, I'd seriously consider picking it up... Maybe it's something you'd be interested in LOL. Look on Craigslist! :D


Welcome again to the forum!

fuck with juice anything's fast. lol A local guy who I don't talk to anymore had a KLZE in his 323 and it made less than 200 to the wheels and that was with headers, no exhaust, intake and a megasquirt. Ie- little less power than mine. Not much but a little.
