I'm fairly certain there will be a CAI at some point as various companies have stated they are working towards one but I don't how long it will be if you're talking about the US version of the car. Aside from that you can add a K&N for that whole 1HP it might give you and you could lower it with the Eibach springs for some handling gains.

there is a ram air intake system and sport filters from AutoExe and also mufflers but they are made for the Japanese version maybe the ram air intake system will fit on the us version but for my knowing the kandn drop in filter us version differs in size to the non us version so maybe there different..
u can email them and order and they will ship it to you

i don't know if the issue was confirmed with the 6 or not, but on the new 3 the ecu has some code in it that locks it up if it sees a raise in tq levels. So even an intake on the new 3 was sending the car into limp mode. I know they are starting to figure out the ecu on the 3, but not sure if anyone has played with the 6 yet.

'03 Lapis(mostly) 6i...Tranny swap by Gillis Motorsports : MTX-75 5speed tranny, 4.06 gears, Torsen LSD & chromoly axles, Engine build by Gillis Motorsports: 9:1 Supertech Pistons, Crower rods, Supertech valves, springs & retainers, ARP head & main studs, F2 Stage2 Turbo, Custom F2 engine/tranny mounts, 3" Turboback exhaust, Tein Basic Coilovers, Brembo Big Brake Kit and Rotora Rear Rotors, RacingBeat Front & Rear Sways, Seibon OEM hood, VF Engineering rear engine mount, Powdercoated Valvecover, TEIN hood dampers, Some sort of Body Kit from some company usually last dyno 8/23, 10psi...260HP/267TQ

Still need: Seat, cage, Gillis suspension...then i'm DONE!!

Holy farking lame batman! I was hoping that the 2.5 in the Mazda 3 was going to start drawing kits in Dang.

I'm on a holy quest to get swaybars come hell or high water. Did a LOT of (heh heh heh) unofficial testing and discovered that long-hard cornering was what was bothering me the most.

Had a shop tell me to sell the 2009 and buy an old MS6 (WTF are these guys smoking?) when asking to have them build a custom turbo setup. Found a lot of places in the area only do the prepackaged crap even though they say they fab stuff.

If your shop can't do anything more than a kit, don't tell me to buy a Mazdaspeed6, asshat.
