New to the forum!

Hey everybody, I go by Pleb, it’s kinda funny if you get it but whatever lol. I drive a 2008 Mazda3 S GT! So far I’ve loved every second of owning it. I’m a fairly adept car enthusiast, but I definitely don’t know everything, and I’m hoping to get a lot more help from this forum.

Aftermarket pointers!!??

Uhh, I’m basically trying to find the best source for aftermarkets. It’s easy to find parts for the Mazdaspeeds of course, but they’re very different in many ways, as I’ve found.

I’ve found a few things that I was able to determine that they specific fit my car, but a lot of things it’s been broadly stated, or either it will say that it fits the SEDAN of the same year, I drive the Hatchback. I’m not sure if I trust it 100%.

I’ve already installed a CAI, it fits perfect, so that was sorta my test mod, get a feel for how much I can trust websites when they say things fit my car. But still I’m a bit weary to purchase mods and they not fit... Espically since I plan to heavily mod in the future, I.e Flywheels, clutches, FI/turbo kit etc etc.... any tips or pointers in the right direction??

Having owned my own parts stores both performance and general also a performance engine machine shop and various other retail vehicle shops it never fails to surprise me even after so many years that many performance parts manufactured for sales to the general public need to be corrected, fixed or modified to fit ,work or function as they are intended? This goes all the way back to so called appropriately applicated headers on as simple a car as a Chevy Nova with a small block V-8 and needing to beat the sh*t out of the primary tubes to get clearance for flange bolts or spark plug access? > Old timers know exactly what I am talking about!

Sum it up there are no guarantee's of bolt on fitment with any after market parts that are not OEM spec'd.


That actually is the part of the fun of modding.... ya never know what your going to get.

....ZOoom....zoom...
