You never specified whether you have the 2.0 or 2.5L. For a 2.0L that is quite good. For a 2.5L that is pretty average.

Stock 2.5 manual can hit 15.7. So with your mods, you should be able to get 15.6 or 15.5

Re: 2011 Mazda 3 1/4 Mile

The elevation will affect times slightly. If you're still on the OEM all season tires, just a simple tire switch to an aggressive summer tire will shave at least a few tenths. Think Dunlop Star Specs, Hankook RS3 ect. Plus, you get the benefit of much better braking, handling ect. Tires are one of the best upgrades you can do.

As the car sits now? Yeah, probably with more practice, but you'll have to abuse the clutch and drivetrain some to get there (meaning you need to practice shifting faster and not lift) plus work on your launch technique.

Re: 2011 Mazda 3 1/4 Mile

i didnt lift gas at all once i got off the line. but it seem that for the mazda 3 its not useful. i say this because

when im on the street when i shift from 1 to 2 [keeping gas all the way down] it will churp from 30 to 35.

when i shift from 1 to 2, lift off gas, i press clutch and then i press gas and slam into 2nd it churps to 40.

also i have the app called torque with the obdII reader and it says my throttle is open only 84.7 percent. i tried it on my friends miate and his reads 100 percent ?
