You are in the Mazda Millenia
What is this discussion about?
Mazda Millenia, Sedan
Jan 25, 2002 (4:25 am)
One thing that stands out to me with my '01 Millenia P, is how well it handles, and how flat it corners. I am an average driver, not a road racer, but it really is a very good handling car. And fun.
As a matter of fact, except for nitpicking I have found nothing in the first 4400 miles to fault it for. My '95 Olds 88 is off my driving list except for trips to parking lots where some clod might do the door ding trick on my Millenia if I took it.
From the Mazda site:
"Front Suspension Independent multi-link, strut type w/coil springs & stabilizer bar
Rear Suspension Independent multi-link w/3 lateral + 2 longitudinal links & toe control; strut-type w/coil springs".
That is under "Specifications" for both the P and S.
From the 2001 Millenia Brochure:
"Fully independent multilink suspension with gas-filled shock absorbers and front stabilizer bar".
So where's the argument?

Well I guess if you have your Phd in Philosophy there would be many different angles to make your self LOOK correct in the eyes of others, but alas you are still quite wrong....Eibach has simply not released it to the public yet, (ie. It has been planned and manufactured already) SO smartie pants - they do in fact OFFER the product and you can order one now if you like...Huh, duh? Besides you silly little boy, this forum is not about who's right and who's wrong it's about dispelling rumors and misinformation that some ignorant people (trolls or what-have-you) offer here. Rzarski PLEASE stop trying to "save face" and let's move on to a more intriguing topic...On that note has anyone tried the K & N air filter (#33-2672) for their S?...any difference and or problems?? Using it doesn't void the factory warranty does it???

Several people have pointed out the error of my ways on the 01-02 Millenia factory swaybars.
no need to repeat.
I'm willing to bet that no one on this list can find Mazda specs on the outside diameters of the 01-02 Millenia S front and rear swaybars.

Good question about the filter. Other than anecdotal and "I really noticed a difference", is there any real, hard, measured evidence that K&N filters improve performance?

What do you not understand about "Available" and "Not Available"?
The swaybars for the Millenia have been listed for well over a year at Tirerack. They are trolling to see if they can get enough customers
to get Eibach to invest the money to produce swaybars for the Millenia. At $291 for the pair
I don't "Beleive" Eibach can sell enough to recoup their investment.
The K&N people Have done a terrific job in selling a product that the Mazda filter does just as well. It reminds me of what I read on other lists about merchants selling smaller pulleys for your supercharger (GM and MM S) to make them run at a higher speed for more boost. The boost is controled by the computer.
#1226 of 4030 Air Filters...???
Jan 25, 2002 (9:01 am)
Rzawarski, So basically what you are saying is that no matter how free the Mill S' engine breathes - it won't impact the car's "power" or gas mileage as they are both controlled via internal computers - and as I understand that; the supercharger crams the maximum amount of air in anyways??..Is this correct because if so, I will just use the OEM air filter for a quarter of the cost. With 15,000 miles I should probably change it now right?? Any help??
#1227 of 4030 Air Filters...??? by nvedrani
Jan 25, 2002 (9:50 am)
No I did not say that at all!!!!!!!
I said Mazda has done a fine job in selecting the filter for thier engines. In the case of the smaller pulleys, people said the car definitely had more power with the smaller pulley and of course it did not.
Don't spin my words or try to read things into what I wrote that is not there.

Why not just get under a Millenia with a caliper or micrometer and measure them? You might even be able to use your charm to get a dealership technician to do it for you.
I must comment that you seem to have a pretty good knowledge base, but your confrontational attitude won't allow others to hear your points. It's a shame.
BTW, thanks for the miller cycle info...good stuff.
