2018 Mazda 3 Touring
Hey guys! Just joined today, and I wanted to start a thread just to share the progress on my first car, which is a 2018 Mazda 3. Since I have no where else to share it, hopefully y’all will enjoy seeing it turn into the sleeper build Ive always imagined. I’m 17, and a big American muscle guy, but this little Mazda has since grown on me. It had 30k miles on the 2.5L and auto transmission when I got it and it’s been my daily since. I started messing around with it last year and now I’m getting serious on the mods. So far she’s got a rear muffler delete and a K&N short ram intake. According to google, it makes 184hp from the factory. I should be making maybe 194-195, if not closer to 200. At least that’s what I like to tell myself. I plan to install front/rear sway bars, EBC brake pads and rotors, a high flow cat, performance muffler to replace the mid muffler, header, and sport tires. I just recently replaced the oem plugs with some autolite Iridiums and it’s getting performance oil, transmission fluid and oil filter soon. It just got a brake flush and new fluid too. Keep in mind, I do all the work myself with hand tools. It’s only been to a shop for it’s inspection! I’ve been learning about cars for almost 5 years now and it really pays off. Heres what she looks like! I’ll post updates!
