Performance plays second fiddle to none when it comes to automobiles. It is for this reason why automotive enthusiasts spend resources to boost their ride?s capabilities. Performance upgrade is a common measure to gain more horsepower or better handling. On this regard, countless performance parts have been manufactured by aftermarket companies for ?stock? vehicles, such as a Mazda 3 or Mazda 6.
Just like other vehicles, Mazda’s stock can be further boosted by a set of performance parts. Usually synonymous to racing, Mazda performance parts can actually be used for ‘everyday’ Mazdas, such as the Tribute, and the older model cars, like 323s and RX5s. They are special replacement parts designed to boost a vehicle’s power, since the stock automotive components are somewhat restrictive. Some performance components, meanwhile, improve handling and fuel economy. The most common Mazda performance parts are air filters, intake kits, and exhausts.
A Mazda air filter, for instance, removes contaminants, composed most often of solid air particles, to produce a specific air quality required for a vehicle’s combustion process. An oversized Acura performance air filter, however, sucks cleaner air into the engine, thus increasing the engine’s power and torque. On the other hand, the stock Mazda exhaust carries harmful exhaust gases away from the passenger compartment and also converts most of them into acceptable by-products. Hence, it helps in reducing the sound made by the internal combustion engine, lowering the temperature of the exhaust, and controlling the emissions coming out of the vehicle. A Mazda performance exhaust system’s goal is not only to control emissions, but also to provide the engine an ‘extra grunt,’ giving the race car sound.
Mazda performance air filters and exhaust systems are just two of a handful of Mazda performance parts that are offered in the market today. It depends on the owner whether his or her Mazda needs improvement/s on certain performance parts.
