    Unsure, but it looks like this.

    These ones are definitely a Pajero-based chassis: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/use...1890775455.htm

    TIL. They've always been a big ugly dog of a thing, atleast with a Sorento Fe, there's less ugly to look at because they're smaller.

    This is what it looks like with the pod filter, which shows you what I'm talking about.

    halp!
    This looks like its going to increase IAT and probably reduce power as a result. As others have said, Id also ditch it.

    Mazda 3 2007 sports

    Yeah I'm a car noob, slowly learning with a mechanic friend of mine, we've been trying to troubleshoot this slowly when he's free.

    I wanted the car to sound a little meatier (it's stupidly quiet) and don't get me wrong, I'm not looking to boyracer it up, i just want the car to sound deeper, so I figured a pod filter would be enough.

    Anything else I can do besides the pod filter? I can try cleaning the sensor and mounting it differently as a "final test" and if no luck I will go refund the filter and just keep it stock.

    I heard something about a coby if I want a little sound, but i'm not entirely sure.

    Exhaust system basically is your next step.

    If that's the 2.3 Mazda 3, they are very sensitive to changes without reflashing the ecu. Or at least the MPS version was. They had 2 o2 sensors in them, and if the exhaust wasn't designed right they will constantly throw check engine lights.

    I put a k&n filter in my standard airbox with no problem.

    Wouldn't the appropriate slogan for a Mazda be "Zoom Zoom Boom".

    Got a chuckle out of this.

    Any idea why it happened?

    Because boost is an offence against nature


    In unrelated news, looks like the Prius is going to sell. With the Swift gone, I'm now down from 4 cars to 2 cars for now. Will be shopping for tow vehicle though, which will bring the fleet back up to 3 again.

    Probably because stock block/internals + boost+ 11 track events +i drive the car quite hard + heat.
    Wasnt actually logging that session so not sure if lean spike or random event. Changed into 5th on the main straight around 160kph and went bang just after that.

    Serious question, have you looked into potentially putting an FE3 in? 2.0 16v Mazda engine commonly found in Kia Sportages, they're great on boost, very similar to BP but built for turbo from factory with strong internals.

    They see 500hp on stock internals quite often in the states with no dramas, more than enough for what you'd want. Could do 250hp all day on it. Its like Mazda's 4g63, absolutely solid engine and can be picked up pretty cheap and fit without much fuss.

    Being in a Sportage too, its longitudinal isin't it? so coolant lines and other bits are much less of a headache to work with during such a swap, rather than say taking one from a GTR Capella or 626 and having to convert everything to suit RWD

    I still say KL-ZE with a blower though

    Other than ****ed, what even is that piece of engine bits?
    Is it a small end or something?

  21. Post
    I think the consensus was it was part of the rod? its like an alloy of sorts. But engine internals are well beyond my mechanical knowledge.

    It looks like a piece of the bottom end of the piston, that groove looks a lot like the gudgeon pin clip/retainer and what's left of the hole would be for oiling from a squirter down below

    Looked like something from this part of the rod to me

    Yea I thought that maybe at first too but the curve you can see in the pic with his hand is machined not cast/forged

    If you have a look at the area below the gudgeon pin in your picture that's where I think it's from its has the machined round surface for the pin and the groove to hold it in with a circlip/retainer, either way it's wholey irrelevant tbh as figuring out where bits come from isn't going to help much, ****s ****ed, time to get on with fixing
