A/F ratio would be a good one to go with...

make sure if you get an a/f that you get a wideband, cause non-wideband is nothing more than a light show.

you'll be fine with the base kit on stock internals. just take it easy don't do a ton of crazy driving.

i talk to several ppl with the fs kit...everything i hear is good.

fs will take care of you. i've bought a lot of stuff from randy and the guys over there. they'll answer all of your questions.

the mz3 turbo guys are running a lot more hp and tq than the focus turbo guys and they haven't thrown a rod yet...but for how long i dont know.

if it's in the budget, i'd definately get rods and pistons. the crank is just fine. juan is making 500whp in his 3 with stock crank

mz3 turbo guys have different internals and head. I check at work. I might go with those internals and try to see if I can get a tune that will get the direct injection head to work on my motor later on. Just need to get my wifes MazdaSpeed 3 then Ill wont wry bout not having a car to drive that if i tear down at work ill have ways to get around town. Thx though. There not that bad of price for my price right now. It was a idea before the Fs turbo kit came out. I also thought of using the trans for mine it will bolt up. yea 6 speed. better gearing in diff plus limited slip. The tranny though will be about Christmas time next year though. Plus the guy I talked to on the phone from Focus sport said they daily drive and abuse the crap out of a stage 2 kit car. Its there parts driver. Kinda funny

dont get the mzr internals...they aren't any better than the ones you have. go forged.

the disi head is great but you'll be hard pressed to get the tuning right. that's what is holding back the ms6 guys and soon the ms3 people will realize that too.

stick with the mtx75. parts are cheaper. the lsd in the ms3 has yet been proven reliable. it's made by the same company who made the msp lsd's and they are notorious for going out.

i wouldn't look to the ms3 for ANY parts. the aftermarket is much better and much cheaper.

never understand why ppl want to replace oem parts with more oem parts.

yeah they work great for stock applications but you throw boost at it, they need to be replaced at a certain point. since you're putting in new internals, you might as well go forged from the get go.

your motor not mine. when you blow something, you'll understand.

what makes u think u know everything on an mzr they have not even been out long enough to see the what there capable of and what are you some mazda tech. Im a ford tech and I dont know everything on a focus. I see new problems all the time. I ve actually been studying those parts and duratecs for a while to see some of the capablities and so far there pretty good parts. I talk to the mazda techs down the street and for a daily driver car like mine will be Im not going anywhere near the break or wear points. Ive also blown up enough cars in my day. My neighbor races drag cars and practice turbo charging cars and putting nitrous on cars. 2 of my personal cars ive destroyed with nitrous. So its a trial and error process. Its life, It happens. Just face the facts People have to learn on their own and from my own past and studing these parts it will be a decent combo for a daily driver in the future. The sad thing is the mzr was also a motor choice for the new svt fusion they were going to make with 20 psi. Sad thing is Our SVT is no longer here so we will never see it probably and if we do it will be under another nameplate

because i talk to the people who run turbo's on their 3's on a daily basis. i talk to the guy who built the turbo kit on a monthly basis.

and no offence, but i'd take what i get from some tech's regarding aftermarket performance with a grain of salt. they dont know what the cars can handle becuase they aren't modding them.

it just makes no sense to me that if you have a motor opened up, and you are going to be buying internals, why you wouldn't just buy FORGED internals from the get go.

i never said i know everything but i make sure i do proper research and talk to the people who are pushing things to the limits. not someone who works on fixing cars when regular people have problems.

boost is like crack. you're going to want more. when you crank up the power, you'll break something and i'll be here to tell you i told you so.
