2010 Mazda speed 3
I was born with a heart defect, pulmonary atresia, which prevented me from playing some sports I wanted to such as football. My main interest at the time was photography. I started with nature and the outdoors.
As my interest grew in cars, I began taking photos of my own vehicles, starting with my first car at the age of 16. I would spend countless hours from there on out working on the vehicles I owned; learning everything I could about them. Taking pictures and working on my cars was a way for me to be released from the burden of my depression. I was from a very small town, a population of under 3,000, with virtually zero car scene.
I started with simple modifications to my own cars. I started posting photos of them and I noticed they gained some traction. Two years ago, I moved to a larger city and purchased my 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 with money from working as a full-time detailer, as well as some side money from taking photos of cars.
The car started mostly stock as I purchased it used from a dealership. It had a larger turbo than stock, a CST4, and a Corksport exhaust system. The first time I test drove it, I knew I was hooked. The way the car pulled, and the sound of the turbo spooling. It had a few issues from the start. I figured it all out on my own with a lot of research on the platform. To solve my engine issues, I purchased an access port to monitor what my engine was doing.
From there I installed:
- High-pressure fuel pump,
- JBR air intake,
- JBR 3 port boost controller,
- NGK 6510’s,
- Cobb bpv,
- E-tune from Purple Drank tuning,
currently running 19.5 psi.
For the exterior,
- I installed coil-overs,
- Drag dr 69 wheels,
- Corksport hood scoop,
- Teal callipers,
and some other things here and there.
I feel one thing that makes my car unique is the sticker I installed on the rear windshield. It reads, “Don’t kill yourself, someone is happy you’re alive.” I have struggled with depression for years, and I know that someone has read that sticker and felt a hint of happiness light up in their mind.
Many people have commented on the sticker, and love that someone in the car community cares so deeply about those affected by depression. I also get groups together and take photos for free to help people enjoy their cars they otherwise would not be able to.
This car is currently my ongoing project and will be for years to come.
