Hi everybody,
I just bought Mazda 3 MPS mk1 '08 and it sure is a nice car to drive, earlier owner had got it mapped with ram-air intake and cat-back exhaust.

Only bad point is that car seems to give a bit white smoke while idling, so first upgrade will be Banjo Bolt.
If that doesn't work then I have a great excuse to get my turbo upgraded in Turbo Dynamics, any of you have experience on going to the Hybrid Turbo upgrade?

For now my MPS is my daily but I'm hoping to take it to see Castle Combes Track as well some weekend.

If you are going for a new turbo then I would follow the path of other forum members. Their experiences are tried and tested. If you are burning oil because of shot seals then the smoke will have a hint of blue and smell terribly.

Personally I would have Bernie over at Bernie's blowers do the turbo. His rm400 upgrade is £600

Thanks for the answers,
I'll check up Bernie's Blowers before making any decisions.
