Lol how do you expect the PCM to react to the timing difference it's been programmmed to see? I can't see my this working. But if it does 👍

Circling back, I have no idea why someone would want to emasculate a MazdaSpeed3 in such a way, but hey, for enough money, yes, you can probably figure out how to put a Fiesta ST motor in a Mazda3 body.

The above said, this is a really-REALLY bad idea.
