“Less can be More if there is an extreme amount of “Less”.
“Normally, a driver feels more comfortable because he/she is in control and the passenger feels fear… I want both occupants to feel fear. The car must feel like it is constantly trying to kill me, then you know you are having fun!”
“I do not want a bunch of parts in a car, I want a Single Perfect Machine.”
Here is a Before 2012 and an After 2012 Engine Shot.
New Everything, Bigger Turbo, Taller Gears, More HP, Less Weight
Hello, I am Brian. I have been working on my Mazda Protege5 since I bought it in 2002. There are not parts that were not specifically made custom for the car. Hardly any “Bolt-Ons”, and even if they were bolted on, they were either prototype parts or the only one made. I have installed a Haltech Sport 1000 with IQ3 racepak display.
I was the first person to install this engine management system on this engine running Direct Fire Ignition and Full Timed Sequential Injection.
2012 is saw some interesting additions. With the new GT 3071 turbo installed, most everything was upgraded or replaced. The original manifold was on the car for 10 years and needed to be replaced, with that, new Down Pipe, Hard Pipes, BOV, Wastegate, Turbo Back, Motor Mounts, Injectors, Intake Manifold, Throttle Body, Fuel Pressure Regulator, Driveshafts…
Wanted to say Thanks to Cohen Noel for his active interest and support in project MP5T.
