#1 of 2 Boosting the Zoom Zoom on a Mazda5?
Oct 04, 2008 (3:49 am)
I'm considering a Mazda5 and it's leading the pack (against a CR-V and a Forester), but I'm concerned that it's a bit underpowered. I'm not a leadfooted speed freak, but a little more HP and Torque would be nice.
Apparently there are some turbo kits for the 3 that will work on the 5 and some people have put on custom headers. But these can get pretty expensive. The HiBoost kit is 4 grand, not including labor.
The tornado air intake mods at the low end of the spectrum (like the $69 "Turbonator") have been regularly debunked by respectable sources.
Anyone know (and tried) ways to add a little more Zoom Zoom without voiding the warranty or wasting money on junk science?

My 2 cents:
- Get a manual transmission
- Add a K&N CAI
You'll be fine. Underpower is not an issue, the torque is very decent and the rest of the unique Mazda5 features compared to the cars you mention above pay back soon
