Should have got a Mazdaspeed 3. 263 hp turbo I heard bad things about the new Civic Si throttle response too, since it's drive-by-wire also. They say you can peg the throttle and let off quickly without the engine responding. I was thinking about putting a bigger throttle body on my Neon, because dodge purpously modified the throttle body for the manual transmission models to respond slower, for newer drivers.

Ha, me too!!!! Because of the drive by wire sensitivity. Now does the Mazda 3 have the option of a turbo charger stock? Or is the turbo an aftermarket add on?
