Hello, first post here. I've been driving my '66 Mazda 3 sport 2.0 Auto for 18 months now. I really like the car and it has a good balance between ride and handling.

If the auto was available with the more powerful engine I would have bought that, but I bought the 120hp version with a plan to remap it,  which I did in the summer.  The difference in torque is small at low revs, but it now pulls strongly all the way to the redline whereas before is was an uninspiring experience. Definitely more fun to drive.

Hi Welcome to the forum.  I don't know that we have a large number of Autos / Owners on the site, but it's nice to know that having had yours remapped, it is serving you well.
