Default Mazda 2.5L Turbo JB4 Development - 11-29-2020, 04:01 PM

Picked up a new 2021 Mazda3 2.5L Turbo AWD hatchback for development. JB4, intake, and some other parts are in the works! Fun little platform. Will update this post with dragy times and updates as we go.

So the genius Mazda dealer filled our new car with 87 octane (lol), figured we'd do a few dragy runs to help burn the tank off. Best of which is attached. Apparently they rate the engine for 225hp on 87 octane, 250hp on 91+ octane, so we'll dragy 91 octane next before we install the JB4 prototype.

91 octane baseline runs, not bad! About as fast as a tuned Honda Civic 1.5T.

Subscribing to this thread.

I have a 2018 Mazda 6 with the 2.5t and am excited to see development on this engine.

It looks like the Mazda6 and earlier models use an air/air intercooler, while the new Mazda3 uses an air/water intercooler. There is another minor difference with the TMAP pressure sensor. But basic tuning should be the same!

Whew, at first, I thought you were going to say the 6 wouldn’t be applicable due to the minor differences. Glad to hear that tuning will be the same!
