Is autocross bad for turbo motors?

I plan on trading in my Mazda 3 for a Mazdaspeed.

I like to autocross, is this worse for a speed engine?

Re: Is autocross bad for turbo motors?

No. Beat the shit out of it, they like it rough. seriously, they do. there is virtually no turbo lag with the wee little ko4 either. Your making full boost at around 3k. Get a rmm, rsb, wider tires, and a little more power and it will really zoom. Unless you plan on running the stock class.

Just do it, you know you want to. Have you test drove one yet, like actually drove it, not just put put around?

Edit, ill just leave this here. Properly set up, including driver mod.

I test drove both a GEN one and gen two speed.

I believe I might go with the gen2.

Re: Is autocross bad for turbo motors?

Ended up buying a gen2 speed. car does feel a little bigger than my old mz3.

I'm def loving the power and can't wait to get it on the track!

Brilliant video! I would have loved to see the look on the Ferrari guy's face when he realized he just got toasted by a car that costs a 1/10 of his!!
