Sexy. I'm usually more partial to hatches but I have a hard time deciding between the 3 sedan and 3 hatch, they both rock so much. You basically got what the new Focus was supposed to be.

I recommend taking a look at these:
Borla for catback exhaust
Koni for shocks (and springs unless you want a more agressive drop)
Volant if you want a name brand intake

Those are my personal favs, they reek of quality.

My sister was thinking of buying the Mazda 3 hatchback. She got a Volkswagen Golf instead.

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.
I changed my throttle body. Went from about the size of a quarter to a 6.5cm diameter.

Except that's a different model and my OEM throttle body was actually smaller.
Thanks, Ford.
But anyway, now it's like a surge of torque and instant throttle response, but a little after you press it, it will start to slow down a lot, you will only really feel it from a stop. It makes a ton of noise, though. Good noise.

Yay, 400 posts.

all those things don't make much difference in your performance really. Do you plan on anything major? I doubt all that will get u any more than 20HP, 20 if your lucky.

The 2.3 Duratec responds very very well to intake and exhaust mods if you get a chip, so that sounds about right. 20hp is pretty noticeable though, and for a car that's already pretty quick, it would help out. You'd probably see a lot of torque out of it too, which would really be noticable.
