no its not from the banter on here, believe me i was ******* myself more than the rest of you (despite feeling a bit of a muppet) I am going back to a mazda mx3 V6 but i will be placing a 2.5l V6 ford probe engine under there. 170bhp in a car that is just over a ton

well not too far off lol. no the mx3 was about 1100kg iirc with aircon. i will be looking for one without again. i would like to get a j-spec mx6 engine but cant afford that. i just aswell buy a ford probe, swap the engines over and sell the probe as a 1.8 V6. that way it wont cost me naff all for the swap

i think you would be suprised with the J-spec engine bud. a friend of mine has one and it was a close call between him and an aston martin. fair enough the mx was tuned and the aston still won but thats pretty damn quick from a tonka toy

now im not having a pop, i used to have a mazda 323F pop up lights and loved it despite having a single cam 16v 1.6.

my girlfriend had a lovely newer shape 323F with the 1.8 16v and I loved it so much that I wanted a 323F 2.0 v6 zxi more than anything.

However bought a fiat bravo HGT 147bhp cheaply and loved it. Its what made me get a fiat coupe
also picked up a low miles mx3 1.8v6 and thought very little of it. handling was good but a bit notchy and the engine was not flexible like the fiat 5pot and torque was poor. Was one of the most disappointing cars i had owned having had mega expectations.

mazda mx3 is over a ton 1145kg and stock 1.8 is about 130 horses,


I think a 2.5 v6 will be interesting though, but still miles off m3 bhp per ton

ps if you want to work out cars speeds safely use a performance calculator, you just need the bhp and weight,
