What can I do to my car

I have the 2016 mazda 6 sport havent done much to it since I got it but I want to do all kinda of stuff and first off is the engine. I get to 60 in 9 seconds that slower than my stock 2005 Toyota tundra. Can I get a better throttle body? Can I get a better intake manifold? Can i get a better exhaust manifold? I've looked everywhere and havent found much.

Welcome to the forum!

Well, it comes down to: How much do you want to spend? -and- Realize this is a 4 door, 4 cylinder economy family sedan, so it's only going to be able to do so much.

And intake and exhaust are only going to net you maybe 5-10whp, an OrangeVirus Tune will give you a lot more low-end torque so the car will FEEL faster, but pull down the same-ish times. I don't know of an existing upgraded TB or manifold, but I'm sure someone has done it.

This guy has put the most into his 6 that I'm aware of, and has done an excellent job documenting it:

Welcome

Have you had the car since new?
How many miles are on the car.
Service records?
Do you have a budget in mind?

As has already been mentioned, this is not a race car. Unfortunately it is not well supported by the aftermarket suppliers as well. Sometimes to gain a little more speed other mods other than the engine might do just as much, for example, reducing weight.

Are you after more straight line speed or getting around the track faster?

I wanna get around the track faster. Its 33000 miles I've had it brand new and never had an accident never had engine problems I've done nothing to the car at all yet, but my budget is unlimited essentially like I have money but I also have a job to earn more if I need to.

For the Engine the Orangevirus tune is the best bang for the buck. You can search the site and find all the info on them.

Suspension upgrades will improve the handling and enable the car to get into and out of the turns quicker. Stiffer springs or coilovers along with dropping the height make a big difference. Running a wider "summer" tire (Can't run them in the snow) will help with that also. Body suspension bars are even more help. The front tower brace and a rear anti sway bar are good choices.

Lots of folks here would be happy to recommend different products depending on what you want to do.

If you haven't already you're due for a new air filter along with general maintenance are always good ideas. Won't make you go faster but I'm sure a new cabin air filter is in order.

The OV tune is your best engine bang for the buck performance mod.
