It seems that the Mazda boys are getting really serious with their 3′s. We’ve featured a couple of them with down right insane fitment, one from California the other for Texas. Today however, we’re taking you across the Pacific ocean to the great state of Hawaii. The owner Mark and our photo/video guys Emil Corpuz and Jay More went out for a drive around city where they took a ton of photos and made an awesome short video for you all to see. We give props to all you Mazda hatch owners for having the guts to push your cars to the extremes. We urge everyone to check out the video below before anything as it shows us things that photos just can’t quite capture.

Front end features a GV Front Lip/Spoiler Lip, and all the moldings and badging were removed for that “clean” look. Most of the other exterior modifications are relatively light and simple. We’ll save you from reading it all so you can actually enjoy the photos. On the inside Mark threw in a JBarone Weighted Shift Knob & Short Shift Plate while rocking a set of ProSport Premium Guages (Oil Pressure, Boost, A/F Ratio) & UltraGuage. Most of the money and time was spent under the hood and getting that dope fitment, so make sure you scroll down for some specs and numbers!
Dumped on the ground on BC Coilovers and sitting just right on Works VS-KF’s finished in Burning Black color. Front wheels are 19×9 +38 w/15mm spacer upfront and 19×10 +26 w/3mm spacer in the rear. Mark’s tire choice were a set of Kumhos in 215/35/19 all-around. Lastly he added the Dominant Engineering Rear Camber Arms just to clear the fenders and give it that nice look. Make sure you hit the Read More button to check out more photos and see what’s going on under the hood.
Under the Hood:
- TurboXS FMIC
- Injen CAI
- COBB Turbo Inlet
- Denso Iridium 1-step Colder plugs
- 3in Catless DownPipe
- 3in HKS Hi-Power Catback Exhaust
- Flex Innovations Gound Kit

Mark is still not done with his ride however. Future plans consist of things like the GT3071/36R w/ METH system, SteedSpeed Turbo Manifold, CPE Fuel Pump and a custom tune from COBB AccessPort. We would like to give a big shout out to all of our Hawaiian fans as well as Mark, Emil and Jay for all their help. Stay tuned for more sick stuff out of Hawaii, but in the meantime we wish you all a happy 4th of July!
