MX-6 LS 2.5L V6
| ||Model of the car:||MX-6 LS 2.5L V6|
| ||General comments:||This is a wonderful car for anyone that wants a sporty and reliable car for a great price. With 164 Horsepower in a very smooth V6, it is quick and handles surprisingly well. It's a very nice overall package of power, handling and braking. The engine is simply a gem. Very smooth, likes to rev and extremely reliable. A very fun car to drive.My modifications thus far:Custom air intake, Brullen Catback exhaust, PRD short throw shifter with Momo knob, Eibach springs, KYB struts, EBC slotted rotors, Hawk HPS pads.Still to come:Headers, High flow cat, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, underdrive pulley, custom guages, 17 inch rims...|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Fit and Finish - poor quality factory paint tends to oxidize and fade prematurely. Electronics are subpar; power antenna, power mirrors have both gone out. Mazda door locks are notorious; both driver's side door lock and trunk lock will not turn with the key anymore. A lot of small rattles.Response to modifications - Some of the reviews here claim that this car responds well to mods and that it is easy to get more power out of it. Unfortunately, this is simply not the case. A convoluted poorly flowing intake manifold strangles an otherwise exceptional and spirited V6. There are a fair amount of aftermarket perfomance parts for the MX-6 these days, and you can get more power, better throttle response and some decent track times if you put some effort into modifications. However, don't expect this to be like a honda where an intake and exhaust net you 30 more horsepower. 15 inch wheels - A terrible idea to put such small factory alloys on such a sporty car. Throw on some light 16 or 17 inch wheels.Shifter - A bit long, and a tad sloppy. Too much side to side play. Get a short throw shifter.|
