  1. Stock Issues
    I own a 2006 Mazda3 Hatchback with the 2.3 and its sucking up any oil I put in it. I've been reading that it could be the Positive crankcase vent (pcv) a fix a dealership could do, or nothing can be done to fix it. So with that I have thought about doing an engine swap but I don't know what...

    Hi all, after spending a good few weekends on it I've finally installed a 2.5 from a 2010 Ford Fusion into my 2008 mazda 3, following some threads posted on this site (could not have done it without you guys!) But I still have a few things left to figure out but once I'm done I have detailed...

    I have a 2013 Mazda 3 Sedan, I believe it's the i Sport and I know it's AWD if that matters. At this point I'm more curious than anything but I saw something about swapping the engine for a 13B or 20B rotary. I don't know a whole lot about engine swaps but I do know any swap would take a lot of...

  6. Mazda3 (Axela)
    I have a 2007 Mazda 3 Sport 2.3L hatchback. While I don’t have the turbo version, however, I have been wondering if I can strap a stock turbo to the motor from the Speed3 and turn it into a sleeper Speed3 or my second idea is to take the motor and transmission from a MazdaSpeed6 with the AWD...
  7. MazdaSpeed3 Modifications
    Hey there, so I just recently got a 1st gen ms3 and it either needs a rebuild or new engine. The previous owner ran out of oil when driving and now there’s knocking. I’m wondering if I should engine swap or just rebuild. And if I engine swap, what should I get? Or should I just rebuild. Let me know.

    SOMEONE PLEASE! :( So this is my 2nd M3, first hatch. I love it. But as fate would have it, the engine (2.3L) of course seized up due to a manufacturer defect I guess, because I always kept it up with maintenance and clean. Never "dogged" the crap out of the engine. Still, ended up blown. I paid...
