Good Morning All,
So as my second post to the site I figured I should go into more detail of where I am with my Sport Nav 3. This for me is the best/most expensive car I've ever owned so it's my pride and joy. While I want to keep this for years to come and  I had some spare cash to play around with it, so I have :)

Current mods
Handling
Gecko Adjustable coilovers all round
Front Strut Brace

Rear Suspension
Camber Arms / Toe In Arms / ARB (all adjustable) and hardened drop links from Hardrace

Wheels
Bola B8Rs
18x8.5j ET25
215 45 tires

Under the bonnet / Exhaust
Silicon intake pipe
Odula Intercooler
HKS Axel back exhaust

I had taken it down to a Mazda tuning specialist to get it remapped but they couldn't crack it to write the file so I'm stuck at the paltry 150hp and itching to get this up.

EBC are fitting a Balanced brake kit towards the end of September and this will complete performance/handling mods for now as I mover house shortly. Pics to follow when I've got round to shrinking them to the permitted size.

Hello, don't suppose you gave bbr a ring about a remap? They've got off the shelf remaps for the current petrol cars and managed to get the previous gen 2.2d up to 243 bhp.

That was who i went too😀 Still working on a solution

I did research where to go and being a specialist i thought i'd be best off there. There is another company up north whi have cracked the Gen 3 and will talk with them soon enough!
