NokCha's '15 'Wet' Pearl Mazda 6

NokCha's '15 Mazda 6


Ever since I got her on May 2014, I've fallen in love with this god damn car.
Sure it's not the fastest I've ever driven but it's certainly the most funnest and peppiest car I've ever driven.
The steering, aesthetics, quality, and feel of this car always has me excited to drive it in the morning.

I'm a autodetailing hobbyist and as a result I religiously wash/clay/polish/wax her on a weekly/biweekly basis.
Without further adieu, let me introduce you guys to her

Personal thoughts


-When I removed the stock resonator, I decided to try a straight pipe for kicks.
It was the worst decision I ever made.
The exhaust sounded raspy and buzzy as hell.
I had a nightmare the same night and ordered a Magnaflow Glasspack Muffler at 4am to replace it.
The resulting sound with the combination of my custom exhaust just puts a smile to my face everyday.
It sounds much more refined, deep, and aggressive.


Here is my exhaust setup with a stock resonator.
It sounded decent but I felt it lacked in growl and depth.

Here is my exhaust setup with a resonator delete.
You can clearly hear the horrible rasp and airy sound.
At WOT it sounds beautiful but at idle/low speeds I felt like my car was coughing blood.

Resonator Delete



The exhaust setup with the Magnaflow Glasspack Muffler.
It was a lot longer than I expected(que "that's what she said" joke).
I'm slightly concerned because it's so close to the cat but my welder said it shouldn't be a problem(Only time will tell).
My car now sounds sexy

Got the following mods done recently.. Been too busy to update~


Rs-r Sports-i Coilovers
Corksport Rear Swaybar
Ultraracing Front Strut Tower Bar
OrangeVirus Tune

Here's stock suspension height


New height




Ride feels extremely smooth despite being somewhat low. I do have to be careful over speed bumps now as it is much more stiff with the addition of the Corksport Rear SB.

The soft setting. Didn't bother going up the higher notch because the car felt plenty stiff during turns. Turning is much more responsive and I feel I can push the car to it's limits much more safely.

I think you might be that one modified black 6 I saw.. If you live in west LA we've probably seen eachother haha.

Honestly I get my suspension work done by a shop so I don't know the exact measurements. I just ask them to give me the most comfortable setting.
The front lip barely clears parking curbs. Wish I could give you more info.

Nice rims sir, good choice.

Those the OEM calipers? Thinking about doing mine as well when I'm swapping out pads and rotors.
