1992 Mazda MX3 GS 1.8L from North America
Makes Honda's easy prey!
Battery replaced; radiator hoses going; muffler and exhaust replaced; brake pads fading.
I've recently purchased a high mileage MX-3 V6 (195000km), and I'm still driving it at 204000+ km!
Nice fast car!
It's a small 1.8 V6, but with a lot of power, especially around 3500 RPM with the good gas.
Mods of done to date: Cold air intake with heat shield and custom "Ram-Air" set-up. It pulls even harder around 4000+ RPM with the Ram-Air. Dual tip high performance chromed muffler - very LOUD, with deep throaty sound; but not so loud above 60km/h.
With these few mods it pulls even harder than before and you can reach 140 km/h easily than before! Try it! That is, if you use the 94+ octane gas; some gas treatment, and fuel system cleaner (all sold at CDN TIRE!)
Oh, I've done a weight reduction... lost the spare tire, jack, rear truck panels, car mats, and insulation under the hood.
Soon I need a tune up and ignition wire change, and replace the drive belt.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hey, the pull you're feeling around 3500 rpm is the second butterfly opening, its actually pretty cool if you know how to set if off whenever you want, I have a new air system and it throws me back in my seat, but yes, my buddy is going to hook up the 2.5 litre and transmission from japan for 700$, my friend has the same set up with a 50 shot, and he can beat a new SS Camero by a half of a second, have fun, and experiment with the second butterfly.

What do you mean making the second butterfly come out? I would like to know about this Butterfly so when I buy mine I know what I'm doing with it.
