I feel your frustration, I'm a member of the Corvette Forum and Mazda Miata forums and have asked a few questions on this one too. And I see the key to the problem as a lack of R&D into the after market parts segment or at least a slow start. With the platform I would have expected those involved with Mazda 3 and 6 would have come up with quick revisions to existing performance parts for example cold air intakes, exhaust and performance modules. And lets please not just concern ourselves with the V-6 models, plenty of power can be made from the 4 cylinder model but as I've found from some in the Corvette forum, unless your driving a 69 StingRay with a 396/425hp your not worth bothering with. Well my L-82 puts out 407 at the flywheel and 313 to the ground and I still don't rank with the purist. To them I have the one fingered salute, lets not make this forum into the same type of exclussive V-6 members only club.
I've already fabricated a cold air intake for my 4 cylinder Fusion and currently doing homework on an exhaust system. This is too nice of a car with either engine not to get going on making it a great car.

You'll actually see far more mods for the I4 than for the V6, most likely, confusion, so no need to worry there.

I sure appreciate your support, as an administrator please pass on any information of parts developement. If i'm correct haven't you made mention about performance springs to lower and firm up the ride before? If so could you pass on the manufacturers name or company web address I would be greatful. I really think the Fusion needs at least a 2.0/1.5 ride height reduction to maximize handling.

Thanks, Marc

H&R springs already has a set out. They're on tirerack.com for $237. Don't quote me but I think the shocks off a Mazda6 might fit.

Thanks for the intel Showtime, I'll look into the tire rack site when I get done here. I'm a long time financial contributor to them to my wifes dismay.
