Mazda 3 sedans are great cars for what they are, but I feel the hatch is just such a more appealing vehicle to boost/mod/make cool looking.

What hp numbers was the 3 putting up with the turbo?

250ish I think. And they limit boost in lower gears. And they are FWD =(.

The Speed 3's come stock from the factory with 260-280.

The 3 in the picture came stock with 140 but after the kit he is right around 250, but he beats speed 3's haah

I'm located in utah, the 3 belongs to my brother

I respect the Speed3's because they are so damn quick and put it down better than most FWD platforms. And most of the time their drivers arent douchebag retards that rev at much faster cars than theirs.

268hp and 280ft/lb. of torque out of the box. Unfortunately the boost limit in lower gears tis true not that it makes much of a difference. there is still plenty of power, wheel spin and torque steer are limited.

why thanks drew, that's awfully nice of you

As for your brothers car beating speed's- I'll believe it. Depending on the tune he is running and the fact that the 2.0 sedan is roughly 300lb lighter.

I love my zoom zoom though. such a fun, tactile car to drive!
