Want more power!!

So I’ve had my Mazda 6 for 2 years now I’ve enjoyed every bit of it recently just getting it back up after I blew an engine. But I’ve noticed I want more power. I don’t see many turbo kits and seen a lot of DIY ideas same for super chargers I’ve seen the MSDS headers and Weapon R racing and not sure how well they perform either. If anyone has any product lines that are more bolt ons and worth it please send it my way. Anything helps.

A great starting point would be to let us know what year Mazda and your equipped powertrain.

It’s a first gen 2003 and it’s a 3.0L v6 I haven’t seen much for it so I’m trying to see if anyone knows of stuff I’m missing.

heres what Ive done to mine

CAI
EGR reroute
TB coolant line delete
Gutted CATs
muffler delete for a single straight through magnaflow

I've noticed a reasonable gain on the low end you can also swap your ignition coils for the mustang ones but I haven't done that yet. Unfortunately theres not any reasonable tuning options for the V6, I think Twisted Tuning makes on but its a little pricey.

I have the msds headers on mine and I really enjoy them. Can definitely feel a difference in power and adds a nice sound.
A cold air intake is another easy to do upgrade.

What did you do for the EGR reroute, what did you need, and how long did it take you? On my 04' I've done the EGR mod where I cut a large portion of the stem off. But I've seen nothing on a reroute?

This is what I have done currently
Basically you are cutting the EGR tube and making it pull in fresh air instead of exhaust


Im thinking of changing it to run a hose to elbow of my CAI, thats what most people do (or the factory air box if you dont have a CAI)

Nice!! Has it thrown any codes for it being so close to the EGR like that? The reason I ask is because I though I had seen some post from way back that having it close like that would toss some readings that the EGR wouldn't like. That's why when I did my EGR reroute and optimize I ran it back the the stock air cleaner. I did have the air box mod as well.

Op, I did my EGR mod and reroute, grounded my TB, deleted the TB coolant, and the air box mod all in 1 afternoon. Beings that you have an 03 S (same as me) I strongly recommend that you do the EGR reroute ASAP!! When I did mine I had caked up cat dust inside the EGR pipe that goes into the intake manifold. After seeing that, I ended up taking the manifold off and cleaning and wiping it as much as I could. I'm glad I EGR reroute because I believe it saved the engine. Btw, these are the 1st mods I did. These are all easy and very cheap (free even) mods to do. 1 even can save the life of the engine.

Here is a pic of mine. The green and copper looking pipe was ran to the stock air box. When I did the CIA, I just put the small breather on the end and let it hang out next to it.
