    This week I had the CorkSport Bypass Valve installed. I was going to do their high pressure fuel line but my service guru recommended against it as it is smaller in diameter and the tubing I have now is steel. This BPV makes even cooler sounds with a pop now and then.

    There are few things that are as relaxing and exhilarating than running my Speed through the gears with the windows open! Here in Arizona this is windows-down, no AC time of the year and I am enjoying it!

    Seems like you're adding new parts pretty regularly. That's awesome

    Hopped in my MSP after a month long trip to Kauai. It fired right up on the 1st crank after sitting in the rain and NorCal winter storms. I thought the battery would be weak or maybe some water would be in the trunk or at least a low tire.
    Nope. All good. 12+ years later I still love the thing.
    Why do I still love a car that's worth about 5K? It's pretty quick, corners better than 90% of the cars on the road, gets nearly 30mpg, I can roll with two friends, my dog and three surfboards inside, it will never try to change lanes, hit the brakes or snitch to the internet on me, it ain't bad looking, etc.

    30mpg? I don’t think I’ve ever gotten better than 24. I average around 22. I must be doing something wrong.

    Its actually very nice ignition based FFS and antilag. I only did it since my aux fueling would continue to spray and fuck my couch with cobbs fuel based cut.

    A Mazdaspeed Protege (MSP) does 30mpg. Not an MS3 though.

    2003 MazdaSpeed Protege
    Compact car
    Horsepower: 170 hp
    MPG: 24 city / 30 highway
    Curb weight: 2,843 lbs
    Engine: 2.0 L 4-cylinder
    Wheel size: 17″ diameter, 7″ width
    Fuel tank capacity: 14.5 gal

    I realize this is the MS3 forum, but I just replied to this from the recent threads bar. The little car's a tank!
