My new '06 Mazdaspeed6:
I had to get new tires because the MS6 came with summer tires so I got the whole wheel package Kazeras 18x7, +50mm offset wrapped with Pirelli PZero Nero M&S P215/45-18. On my second set of Pirellis after 23K miles
Just applied Zaino.
Installed CP-E Xcel CAI. Now I can hear the turbo and BPV.
Installed Magnaflow Catback. Quiet but deep tone.
I couldn't take the ugly rust on my rotors so I G2'd them with silver.
I decided to paint the calipers red.
I finally got to install my Street Unit engine mount.
There are the idiot tabs.
I also installed some cool DG Carbon Fiber Down Forcers.
Here is the 2 Down Forcers and Stainless Steel hardware. I used 1/4 inch bolts, washers and nylon nuts.
I loosen the wheel well covers to gain access to the corner of the bumpers. Cleaned the CAI filter while I was at it.
Drilled and mounted 2 bolts and then drilled the rest of the holes with a 1/4 inch drill bit.
Finally the finshed DG Carbon Fiber Down Forcers installed.
I got the nerve to open up my console to install my Autometer Boost gauge. Placed it in my upper map compartment so I can hide it (sleeper look). I changed my Sport II to the ES series and now the Vacuum/Boost illuminated a red LED at night.
I finally, install my HKS SSQV BOV and CP-e adaptor flange. I had to re-align the vacuum nipple from the top 12:00 o'clock to 5:00 o'clock. That was tough. Ruined most of the nuts so replaced them with M3 x .5 x 10mm socket head cap screws. You can see all the vacuum hoses for the BOV and boost gauge.
I installed a Corksport Strut bar. Nice and shiney!!! After 1.25 yrs, I finally installed my ETS 3 inch Black powder coated Top Mount InterCooler (TMIC) with red silicone boost tubes and recirculation tube.
My engine bay is a little dirty but so far this is how she looks with my mods.
I finally dropped my Speed6 with Revolution Performance Motorsports (RPM) Sport Spring and Bilstein HD Shocks. Advertised drop is 3/4 inch.
Before & after:
I installed Redline Tuning QuickLIFT Elite Hood struts. Nice hood lift system. No more prop bar in the way:
I had a little tough time snapping the strut onto the hood bracket but I muscled it.
I switched the OE shifter weight for the reduced Cobb Shifter Weight to reduce notchiness. Not a big improvement but a litttle better.
Installed a Modern Performance Inc reworked K04 turbo and a CP-e Vibrant catted DownPipe. Sorry the pics are not that good:
Installed CP-e Engine Management System (EMS) Standback with PnP harness, TurbineTech front differential Mount and bushings:
Finally, installed StreetUnit Silicone upper Radiator hose:
My OE battery died due carelessness. I left on the back reading light. I decided to install a 21 or 23 lb Braille sealed battery:
Updated the TMIC from ETS to CP-e:
1. HKS Twin Power Ignition Amplifier
2. Mazdaspeed Forged Assessory Wheels 18x7.5.
