2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I have had this car almost two years, bought with 35k on it now I have over 80k to tell you how much I drive it. Didn't have Cruise control when I bought it so I had it installed at the dealer. But the motor is a little on the weak side when you get it. 170hp/170tq or somewhere around there. I have only put in about 2k in mods /pistons rods frontmount intercooler and piggyback controller and now it turns out a little over 330hp to the wheels. I run this car at the track every blue moon but it definitely lays down on evos and STI's.
Factory turbo, made it easy to mod. Incredible suspension, I only had to buy some lowering springs for about 200 to lower it 2 more inches. And the lightweight racinghart wheels from the factory.
cruise control, and the internals are only good for 10psi...then again almost every car is like that.
