There's actually a MazdaSpeed section for this site - perhaps it'll be good not to have duplicate discussions of the same topic???

I say if they use 2.3L Turbo'd engine, then it can be all the way up to 270 HP. I doubt that'll happen because that engine is used in M6 already. The MS 3 will probably have around 180-190 HP.

Rumors (from SCC magazine) are that they may make the turbocharged engine with four wheel drive.

I only wish they decide to bring it to the North American market.

Probaly the same AWD inline four banger with a turbo that the new (SVT) Ford Focus will have.

Isn't the focus supposed to have absolutly NO link with North American mazda'S ?

I really hope so.
But as far as I know, Mazda IS in charge of Ford's smal engine development. which means that it could be true.

A Mazdaspeed 3 will probably put out 210 or 220 with a turbocharger, I'm being conservative here because I think a really hi-powered car they would keep with the RX8.

The MazdaSpeed Protege made 170 didn't it? I'd be looking forward to Mazdaspeed parts for the Mazda 3 if a Mazdaspeed version was available.

From CNN.com

By early 2005, performance junkies can expect a turbocharged Mazdaspeed 3 sports compact that should pump out at least 200 horsepower (or up to 240, if Mazda decides to offer an all-wheel-drive version). The hotted-up 3 should be followed by Mazdaspeed's take on the mid-size 6.
