Is this possible?

Basically, I would like to bring the car up in the 200hp + range, but dont really want to go the turbo / supercharger route. I have a machine shop at my disposal (my dad picked the right business to start :) ), and an ok budget (over time) of about 2000$ - 3000$ cdn over about 8 months.

I am already installing an air inject system & K&N filter, and rumour has it that will bump by 6 -8 hp. My understanding is that a stock mx6 (94) 2.5L dynos at about 160 horses, so im looking for a gain of about 40. NOS would be great on the track, but I and thinking more for day to day driving (which Is why im staying away from Supercharging, well that and gas prices here in Canada 40+$ to fill the tank with premium hurts). And due to the fact there isnt a premade (widely manufactured) aftermarket turbo kit for these cars, turboing doesnt seem very cost effective.

However, I am really missing the stealth factor of my old Rx7, and having mustangs able to beat me off the line, is hard on the system :) So, I need to bring my mazda on par with my old series two rx7, to satisfy my ego :) One last thing, I do want the enhancement to be stealth again.. would like the car to remain looking and sounding rather like a stock mx 6 :)


The stats:
1994 Mazda Mx6 LS
2.5L


Any advice would be great :)

BTW, sorry for the glut of posts lately, I just discovered this wonderful place :)


cheers,
Serapth

actually, our cars have 164 hp at the crank and about 136 at the wheels. Because your intake will be sucking in hot air, you will be loosing about 1-6 hp. I would recomend either
1- buy or make a hot shot type filter that will place your filter in a cold location(see my web link on my sig for directions on how I made my own ) or

2- buy a rpm intake that will completely cover your intake from sucking in hot air. Either method will give you about 4-6 hp.

As for the cheapest and easiest way to get 199 hp at tje crank naturally aspired is to buy the japanese versions of our motors that come with
1- cams
2- higher flowing intake manifold with bigger vris plates
3- boosted comp rate

I am sure I am missing a few more items. I bought my motor for $1400 shipped from www.usedengines.com

I Hope this helps

Okay... well 200whp is very hard to do 200chp is more reasonable. Two things that give a nice increase are doing a port and polish of the intake manifold and getting aggressive cams (interprep makes some nice ones).

if you find a good used Japanese engine, that can automatically give you as much as 170whp (with a Japanese ECU), so its a lot easier to reach your goal with it!

dude

Allistair at interprep tuning could do it up no problem,,,

A nice aggressive racing cam job from interprep and the japenese intake manifold will get you over the 200hp mark...and probably cost in and around your price range... that and a bunch of bolt ons and you are done!!

New name, old product. The same thing has been available for a while under the names "tornado" or "hiclone". I can't speak for other engines, but in the Kl-03 it has been shown to cause an average 1 hp DROP in power.
