    I wanna see the boost curve when it gets warmer. I'd imagine the throttle plate won't close as much, but who knows. It's been 7+ years since I drove a stock tune mazdaspeed lol

    Curious as to what Transmission fluid is blue only Redline Shockproof is all I know of. The VVT pin and spring falling out is from lack of heat treatment used on the original units. Horror stories over the years of people finding them in their oil pans. Nice to see things are going well.

    I use this stuff in both my speeds. No 2nd gear crunch in sub 30 degree weather before the car is warmed up, and it's fucking awesome. I use their motor oil (which is also blue) in the built motor in the ms3 as well 0304191717.jpg 20180930_132929_HDR.jpg

    Did a few things today. Replaced the soft rubber clutch line on the ms6 with a techna fit ss line and then took an ms3 mazdaspeed cai that my friend gave me, and slapped it on as an SRI on the ms6.

    Also, did a 3rd gear pull to 60mph for shits and giggles while having my phone screen grab the gauges off the tq app. Kind of hilarious seeing the afr data

    Snowflake the white turd continues to get awesome mileage.

    Latest tank, over 3 days:
    405.2 miles, 14.1 gal. 28.74mpg.

    80% highway, 20% city, with the car being started and shut off a minimum of 10 times per day over those 3 days as I traveled around for work
