Cool Ways to Modify and Upgrade Your Mazda B2300
What makes the Mazda B2300 a notable vehicle is its nimbleness on- and off-road, particularly since it was made in the time when other pickup trucks are being built bigger. While it did not do well towards the final years of its production, the B2300 is a great choice for those who need a basic pickup at a low price. And because of its simple features, it also serves as a blank canvas for car enthusiasts who are into personalizing their vehicles. If you are planning to modify your Mazda B2300 and upgrade the engine, here are some ideas that you could try.
Lower your vehicle for a more comfortable ride
The best way to modify your Mazda B2300 that people will surely notice is to lower its suspension. Not only will it make your truck look cool, but it will also improve its performance, which helps maximize the engine\'s power. Lowering your vehicle\'s suspension will mean that there will be less air going underneath it, which will bring better aerodynamics on your truck. It will also increase the grip of the tires on the roadway and improve your truck\'s handling. If you are afraid that your truck seems to be at risk of tipping over, lowering its suspension will prevent that from happening. Finally, it will also provide greater comfort to you and your passengers if you lower your truck a bit.
Install a supercharger
A supercharger pressurizes air intake above the normal atmospheric level. This allows more air to go into the engine, and when combined with more fuel, produces more power. This component is powered mechanically via a belt or chain from the crankshaft, and spins faster than the engine itself in order to force air into the combustion chamber. It then makes space for more fuel, which creates for a larger combustion. With the supercharger, your engine will be up to 50 percent more powerful. And if you install this in a small pickup truck like the Mazda B2300, your vehicle will start behaving like a much larger, more powerful truck. In terms of installation, it is easy enough to be done by yourself, since you\'re only going to bolt it to the top or side of the engine.
Other modifications you can do to upgrade the engine\'s power
Your Mazda B2300 can also gain 5 to 10 percent more power if you install a full exhaust system and an induction kit on your truck. If you don\'t mind spending a bit more, you could also get a good branded nitrous kit, which gives an immediate boost in power when injected into the engine with a certain amount of extra fuel. However, you might want to use it sparingly as nitrous doesn\'t last long and can be expensive to refill. Another creative way to increase your truck\'s speed is to not just install a new component, but to strip it out of things that you don\'t need. This includes the other seats, interior trim, sound deadening, the spare tire, and even the HVAC system. If you can, you could replace them with ones that are made of lighter materials.
