Question Please help me upgrade my 2010 MS3

Been a long time reader of the forums and thought it was about time to jump into things.

Here's the deal, my 2010 Mazdaspeed3 is just about to roll over 36,000 miles and it is time to start upgrading.

Here's what I have so far on the purchase item list:
---
CORKSPORT Power Series Short Ram Intake 2010+ Mazdaspeed 3

CORKSPORT 2010+ Mazdaspeed 3 Cat Back Exhaust

CORKSPORT 2010+ Mazdaspeed 3 FMIC kit for Short Ram Intake (Do I need to add a CorkSport intake?)


COBB Tuning MAZDASPEED 3 Access Port Tuner

Told I also needed to upgrade my fuel pump but I am clueless as to what I should get.
---

That's what I have so far, I am very aware of my newness to all this and readily concede I don't really have a clue as to what I am doing. I would appreciate any help in telling me exactly what I need to improve my car. The only things I care about are acceleration, handling, and speed; aesthetics really don't concern me. Thanks all.

Below is a link to where you can buy Autotech fuel pump internals to upgrade your HPFP. Autotechs are the best intenals you can buy and JP at Edgeautosports has the best price. I have Autotech's installed for over ten k miles now and they work flawlessly. There are how-to threads on MSF.org that will get you through the install. It's not that hard. Also look into getting a downpipe to replace the stock one. A downpipe unlocks a lot of power. My cp-e catted downpipe sounds great (deep tone and not too loud). The power improvement and driveability increased ten fold.

The following is probably a logical order, I am sure some would switch a few things around. I did not address eye candy and fluids.
Intake
RMM
RSB
Plugs
Fuel Pump
AP/ATR
Exhaust
IC upgrade
Other Suspension
SMM
There are some others mixed in but this should be the major items.

Talking

You may want to also check out CP-E for performance upgrades... I use them and so dose Warlord.

I'm installing Autotech Internals this weekend and then getting an AP for Stage 2 tuning.

Good Luck

Probably agree with the CPE, they have quality products and you do pay for that, my FMIC, FP, MM and seals are CPE.

Sorry to get off topic, but TWEAK why are you going with a Stage 2 map, this is typically for full exhaust change outs and based on you list, you are not there. Doesn't really matter, the OTS map is merely the starting point as every car acts differently.

Z good point!

I'm going to get there one of these days... It's just a matter of time. The car runs like a champ right now minus any ECU changes. If I do get an AP, I will probably just stick with stage 1 maps for right now.

Again sorry OP for being off-topic (below) but I believe your issues have been answered. One bit of advice, do your research for every purchase, as we all know the lowest cost is not always the direction to go. I have changed out several parts, i.e. TMIC for my CPE FMIC, lost a little cash, the ETS TMIC was a great product but I really wanted to go FMIC so someone got a good deal. As we are a few years into the GENPU era, options are being presented and new products are coming forward. Not a bad time for the platform, when I look at $/HP this was not a bad choice.

Tweak, you will be surprised at the clamps that can be removed with the AP. I am a noob to this, but with the help of others learning very quickly and starting to see some decent results. The nice thing about changing maps is copying the MAF table over, making some fuel, boost and WG changes and starting the process over. Run for 50 miles or so (watch LTFT until the settle down), MAF calibrate, modify the table, flash the map and start the true work. I will suggest Ablior's Tuning Guide, the ATR Help File and there are several other threads with alot of knowledge.

Thanks everyone for your advice, there seems to be a whole new world opening up for me here.

Phase One:
Cold Air Intake
Turbo Inlet Pipe
AccessPORT

Phase Two:
Cat Back Exhaust
Downpipe

Phase Three:
High Pressure Fuel Pump
Front Mount Intercooler

From there who knows? Thanks again for help.
