    not at this moment I'm still waiting for court case on the car as had major issues with the engine builder doing a terrible  job only found this out when i went to a super specialist, so once i get the money off the original guy from the court its another rebuild and then yeah i will get there as the original builder could not fix the faults with the car which he had coursed, and almost coursed it to totally blow up and catch fire as had major leaks!! craziness

    To help you out its around 390bhp .... So what do you intend to do with all that? Apart from sitting on the spot trying to get some form of traction?  ???

    It's my daily driver

    0 to 60 pointless

     How fast it is from 60 to 120 is more important to me

    Fast over takes.   

    And to speed at 2500 rpm in top I am doing 70mph

    It's max revs will be 7500

    It will never pull to the red line   210mph

    I don't think I will be taking it past 160 any time soon  unless I take a German road trip

    That is mental, in a good way - major respect to you! However, I don't think you'd get anything like enough traction to make it really that viable? I don't think it would make a remotely usable or enjoyable car. Never mind from standing, you'd struggle to get enough traction in-gear! But then, I could be completely wrong...it could be insanely amazing :)

    Will do

    For the past 2 month I have been driving a mazda3 1.6

    My car is going to be mentle

    Thay gave me the option to try 1.8 bar witch should have given 420hp

    But  I want some long term reliability  and the aim was 400hp

    If its not enough  I can try a meth kit and 2 bar

     ;D

    With all of these power upgrades what have you done to the handling side of the car i.e. brakes, suspension etc?
    You will be needing a new set of tyres every week hahah
