You have the FS-DE. It`s a 2.0L I4 pushing out 114 HP because tou have the 1993. You have a few options:I have an 4 cylinders '93 mx6 .
And i'd Really be glad to know what motor is placed on it and what i can do to get more horsepower.
I ask to you on how identifying this motor.
I haven't ever heard of that part. And if it's advertising 15-30 HP on $35, it's most likely a POS eBay semi-scam. Don't go for it. get an air intake instead, should run you about the same price, but it WILL give you SOME power(if fitted to a header and exhaust)I Found a part called the Turbonator that can add 15-30 Hp, it costs only $35. It also improves your gas mileage. Has anyone here tried that? Does it really work as advertised. I believe the site is turbonator.com if you wanna check it out.
What you said is pretty much the easy way of this: I used it, and it kinda felt faster. It was probly just your other mods, or the fact that you wANTED it to feel faster after installing it, so you told yourself it felt a little faster. I went through the same stage with the "chip" which is a resistor that tricks the ECU into thinking the air is always cold so it dumps more fuel in.I have something like this in my intake now(just before throtle body - about 5 in). It is a small windmill. It rotates very lightly and it's made whit some kind of plastic (very good quality by the way). There was no noticeable power or torque increase on dyno (I measured my car on different dynos, so there can be some gain, but more possible is that it simply changes the power and torque peak whitout anny noticable gains). I feel that the car is now more responsible for fast adding gas . Even when I'm driving 60 mph on a 5th gear, there is a fast reaction for quick throtle add. Maby it's because of the other, more advanced mods, but when I put this litle thing (it cost me something about 15$) I saw that the difference is worth of money. Just don't think that this will give you 55BHP gain, because it's simply impossible whitout very comlicated engine mods (like N/A -> turbo conversion, for example).
The I4 MX-6 was never designed to keep up with GSR's and K24's??? IT was designed as a fuel saving, middle class, sports coupe. Use it that way, or change car/motor. KL-ZE swap is the best option on a budget. KL-DE swap + turbo is a more expensive but stronger one.I just asked this questions. looked a lil more and found this one. great stuff. Thanx, like all the ideas. never really thought you could do that much to them. I need the performance mods though... I sort of keep getting bullied by LS and GSR, K24.. my 6 looks fast already.but its just that looks are not enough, however , with these steps right here... I can at least stay with them a lil more. If I can't, let me dream. Anyway thanx.
don't bother with the intake manifold. Cams are a good upgrade though.
The JDM intake manifold uses a different system VICs or something like that IIRC? It's got butterflys in the manifold that seems to me kinda operates like VTEC. It's kind of a pain in the arse and i'd say your better off porting an Aspec manifold and port matching it.
If you insist on going that route however, I remember there was a model of the Proteges that had the same manifold as the JDM 4cyl mx6 intake manifold. Much cheaper than the $600+ manifold on corksport.
#1 yea like I said I have never used the JDM manifold. From looking at pictures thats what it looked like it would do. I guess I was a little off, timing versus runner length oops...
#2 thats what i said...
#3 Really the FS-ZE is a 6 cylinder? I was almost 100% sure it was a 4 cylinder.
ebay kits don't count... name some im interested to see them. I'd rather assemble my parts seperately anyway unless it is stuff like the racingmazda kit above.
