I just watched the dyno vid, dude is nowhere near 265 crank HP, hell he's far above it with just the CAI but also running an aftermarket BOV and with no cats, he's making serious power. Looks like he lowballed on the dyno with those mods

You just have to make sure tq steer doesnt get the best of you. The mazdas are tuned to reduce the tq steer, although now that he's modded idk what kind of effect it has on this tune, or if it stays in place when you tune it. The ecu limits the amount of power in 1st and 2nd gear to reduce tq steer. This is why the ms3 has such low 0-60 times, but once you get outta 2nd gear the thing pulls and just flys.
