I got mazda 3 2.0l 2005 and I want 2 make it faster and more powerfull.
I got cold air intake, exhaust but thats not a power and i know I should just buy myself turbo kit but I am not going to buy it now so I was wondering if you could help me and give me some advise to make it 200+.

in top gear they tuned renault from 157 up to 207 hp and I want to make the same tuning but I was wondering is it bad for my engine.

thanks.

You mean the 7 year old Renault that was beat to hell, with a factory-advertised HP of 210? They got it back up to 207 with a major tune-up and a new air filter. You can't magically add 40whp to a car with any sort of tuning.

Seems like a lot of people coming here lately asking how to get significantly more HP out of their 2.0's and 2.3's without a power adder. I guess people don't understand that we aren't driving audis or 5.0 mustangs that can get significant additional power out of an intake, chip and exhaust. :thinking:

but yours is so much better no offence guys. haha.

without a power adder you wont get much hp out of a tune max has been what +15whp? search the forums read up on what these cars can do with what and consider the options. power adders are turbo, Supercharger, nitrous. those other cars are seeing more hp from a tune prolly because either they have more displacement or are high compression, possibly both, that is why they see some huge gains from just simple exhaust and CAI. we on the other hand have lower compression cars that are 4 cylinder. and being a 2.0 means you are even lower on the tier because of the less displacement, on ther other hand from what i have read 2.0's are the ones who handle boost ebtter.

Haha, got to love you some Jack.

I have heard 2.0's handle boost better too. Not sure why. It's always been in the back of my head to boost my 2.0.

lower compression pistons, and a shorter stroke giving. lower compression aids in how much boost you can trow at them while the reduction in the stroke makes the opossing forces on the rods less. just holds up better. although i havent seen a boosted 2.0 try and push much past what the specs of a turbo kit are with a stock block. both models share the same 5speed tranny so limited on how long the 3rd and 4th gear holds up.

The 2.0 has higher compression pistons...10.1 vs 9.7 for the 2.3l The main thing is shorter stroke. 3.27 vs 3.70 on the 2.3

the renault they took has the same engine than the 350z.
you are not going to make more power than you have already, maybe 10hp more with headers, thats it...
