did you see this page? he dynoed just the "stealth" cai and it added 6hp and 7ft/lbs TO THE WHEELS. not bad, and you can feel it, really helps with response times and such.

and fororec, this is possible on yours too, just take off the top half of your airbox, and take out the filter, then get one of those cone filters and stick it on the end of the existing tubing. as i've said above, we did this to a friends zx4 with zetec, and it helped alot as well.

on the track, my friend and i decided to go for a spin (2 of them own Mazda 3 with different engine sizes) i have beat the 2.0 Mazda 3 off the straight line, barely got past Mazda 3 2.3, but I am not gonna try the Speed3. I have a lot of bolt-ons though. however, when I am done with my Focus, the Mazda 3 2.3L will be my next car though.

So I guess it all depends on the driver's ability and how much modifications you have

and yes my ZTS is an auto and 2.0 zetec.

those guys with mazda 3(the 2.3) think their cars are the stink, but no.

I accidentally raced a mazdaspeed3 at the track thinking it was the regular one.

man o man. That guy ran a 13.4, but it looked a heck of a lot faster.

Oh yeah, I still hate Honda's
