One Customer’s Journey to AWD Bliss

Mazdaspeed3 AWD

With untold hours on the phone with AWR, and purchasing many components, this customer is performing their own MAZDASPEED3 AWD conversion..

“Well, it has finally begun. After months of research and phone calls to various sources i have decided to begin the task of the conversion. Tonight with the assistance of a friend we removed the engine and attempted to mate the new turbo and manifold to the engine. However after running into a few issues the manifold had to be returned to the manufacture for modification. We found the compressor housing to be too large as well as the hotside was contacting one of the runners. It has been a long day for us as well as a frustrating day. Stay tuned for more to follow tomorrow.”
