Very nice. Sorry you blew up. One of the main reasons I got rid of my MazdaSpeed. What mods did you have?

I had a shitty FMIC on it, took it off due to boost leaks in all the connections for the piping, four of five days after I put all the stock bolts on [ TMIC, stock intake, etc ] the car blows when I'm doing about 10 MPH at 1/4 throttle. The place it's at now [ Protege Garage in Round Lake Beach, IL ] said it may have been due to crank walk. He's finding more and more problems with the stock motor as he tears it down. Previous owner did a bit of a hack job to the car. Other than eBay intake, eBay FMIC, and eBay BOV, I have a ProSport boost gauge, and it's straight piped with a resonator from the DP back.

Mazda's lost my trust. They didn't want to cover my engine under warranty due to the fact that I didn't have ONE receipt for an oil change. Mind you, I bought the car when it had 21,900 miles back in August of 2009. The car blew up at 30,700 miles in February of 2010. The owner's manual calls for an oil change with fully synthetic oil every 7500 miles. Given, I know this is under "light driving conditions" but I didn't beat the shit out of my car. I let it warm up before I even used the turbo, and let it cool down enough after I really did run the car. So Mazda says I missed ONE oil change, which I did do, myself, but didn't think to keep the receipt from Walmart for the oil and filter, who does?

That ONE oil change wouldn't cause a motor to blow. The car was back to stock when a MazdaSpeed certified dealer looked at the car. They called me two weeks after it had been sitting on their lot and actually told me, direct quote "You have low, black oil, and a hole in the block". LOW, BLACK oil, and there's a HOLE in the block. No shit! I wish I could get paid $18/hr to tell people the VERY obvious like that! TWO WEEKS to inform me of something I already knew. Bickered back and forth with Mazda, no bude after 3 months of being without a car I'm paying $260/month car payment and can't even drive it. Decided to get it fixed myself, so that's where I'm sitting right now. I'm in Sycamore, IL, about an hour and a half away from my car that's gutted waiting for the new motor to arrive. I should have it back mid-late next week [ May 4-7 ]. That's 13 weeks without a car that was sold to me claiming it was under factory warranty! Peace out Mazda. They've lost a lot of could be customers through all this. All my family and friends know not to buy from them!

That's my vent! haha.

Please tell me PG is going to throw some good rods in there. I don't think it was crank walk, people across the country are blowing up in these. Speed3's and 6's. There are a lot of theories, but nothing was ever confirmed.

On a side note, I have a cp-e engine management system for sale if your going to get serious about modding the Speed. Let me know.

If I were going to keep the car I would definitely take you up on the CP-E EMS but I'm selling the car when I get it back. I want an 04-05 WRX Wagon. So if you have any Subaru EMS's laying around.. :]

Thought about it a lot, and decided I'm going to keep the car when the motor gets put in, I've put too much money into it to just sell it. So if anyone has parts or hookups to get tunes, let me know! I'm interested in some parts!

Yea, that's probably my favorite from the group as well. The first three pics his ISO was set too high so the pics came out grainy.

Finally got the eyelids painted to match the car, so as soon as I get it back they will be going on and more pics will be taken ASAP.

So I SHOULD [ Key word here ] have my car back late this week or early next week, so as soon as I get it back, I'm going to do another photoshoot with my buddy that has the Evo and we'll have some more pics like this up. :]

More setbacks. :[ Unfortunately, I most likely will not even have the car back for my birthday, Thursday, 4 and a half months after the motor popped. I SHOULD have it back by the weekend, the car's going to be driven around making sure everything's functional starting tomorrow.
