Hello all. I have a 2010 Mazda 3 2.5 and was wondering what parts I would need to buy to put in a turbocharger including the turbocharger. I love this car so much. I would love to get more horse power out of it but I don't know what else I could do. Thanks for your help!
Don't bother trying. There isn't an engine management system known--unless one came out within the last week--to properly manage the fuel and timing that is required after installing a turbo. You'll only blow up your engine trying. If you want a turbo Mazda, save up for a Mazdaspeed.
I'm not hating on Haltech or your business, but it's not worth it...it's better to save for a Speed 3 and use a COBB AccessPort. There is way more aftermarket support for the Speed-model Mazdas and the AccessPort has proven itself as a reliable stock ECU flasher.
The Mazdaspeed3 is a great platform to start with, however the Mazda 3 is also a very capable platform for modding.
For those who do not wish to trade their car to a Mazdaspeed3, we offer the parts to turbocharge their 2.3/2.5L Mazda 3 without the fuel limitations and restrictions of the direct injection fuel system. For those who wish to heavily modify and we also offer a custom built engine program that can exceed the power potential of a Mazdaspeed3 in conjunction with a turbo setup. For those who wish to retain the stock pcm, we are also able to have your car tuned on the stock PCM for a turbo setup.
