Will a bigger exhaust cause me to lose power?



  • This is now moved to discussion board as the old one is for saying G'day

    I kind of flicked through that powerchip pdf but where does it go, it looks the same as the chip for the ford probe which is basically the same engine just a KLDE only it costs about $40 instead of $700 but do not know how they work with a K8 engine

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Ford-Probe-GT-Mazda-MX6-KLZE-Performance-Chip-93-95-/140416650359?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item20b17c0c77

    The cat, just take it off and replace with a bit of pipe made to fit, that will give you more BHP dont know if it is illegal here but it will fail an MOt but only 4 bolts hold it so it takes 20 mins to put the cat back on but if you are worried about the enviroment stop using the car lol



  • Errm… Dont forget the engine still needs backpressure..
    I've once fitted a single freeflow Invidia exhaust, and could actually feel that my torque had reduced. Now got the Remus and its back to normal.
    There's a whole article on the significance of backpressure on mx-3.com.



  • well DJ MarcoPolo,

    hmmmm it seems like the same thing to me.
    Anyways the powerchip from memory is actually supposed to be soldered into the ECU.
    Im not gunna buggerise around with that, thats what ima be paying em for. lolz



  • As for chip, you should pm mazdarati. He has custom chips for all K series engines. Been running one for couple of years now.



  • heya SstennizZ,

    im assuming its the same as what we been talking about, the one that gets resoldered into ECU or is it a Plug n play?

    There are so many different types its not funny.
    But if mazdarati has a better & cheaper alternative, im up for it. :)

    The bigger question is tho as stoopid as it may sound… is it universal for country to county?

    Yes it is and he provides it with a ICE socket, so you only have to solder that in, or let him do it for you, and then every chip is p&p..



  • is there an easier way to find a member on here other than go thru the member list? :?



  • Use the 'search' on menu, think the person you could be looking for could possibly be on the mx3.com(USA) site though



  • Mazdarati is member 633 on here he only joined on march 22nd of this year and has only made a couple or so posts, tbh i think youll have more joy finding him on the other site..

    For future ref when searching for a member and you know there username go to members list scroll down to the bottom and click on select sort method and choice username and then click sort, youll now have the members list sorted by name from a-z..

    That's actually him.. ;) He recently registered because I asked him to..



  • Ive read someware before ur best getting the exhaust size to make the engine 2.0 2" 2.5 2.5"

    a 2" pipe should be cool doesnt really matter about the tailpipe i dont think?



  • Kewl, thanx guys, i found him :)



  • i think ive got 2.5" coming out tailpipe atm but the spare tailpipe/muffler i have has a twin out of about 4" maybe 5".
    It sounds excessive but it looks pretty mean & wondering if its really worth putting on when iget exhaust done. :)



  • so the 1.8lt ill need 1.8". pft, id me going prolly 2.5" i think if its not already. lolz



  • Standard piping for the 1.8 is 2.25" iirc… Moving up to 2.5 shouldn't be too detrimental..
