03 MazdaSpeed Protege *RIP 2005*

This was my first huge horsepower car that ran for about a year. On the track with Nevada SCCA courses at Sam Boyd Stadium and Pahrump Speedway, this thing ran like a champ. I had Mental Addiction Motorsports (Bo who built it) build the engine all the way up to handle and pull for this type of racing. At the Las Vegas Motorspeedway dragstrip, ran a 12.82 E.T. with trap speed of 129MPH, not a bad car, but blew the block later on from a wastegate actuator leak that ran the car @ 26 PSi boost. People's Mazda dealership were amazed at how I blew it on cylinder 3 leaning out.

Here is a few pics of it:

Sorry for the small pictures, but this was taken in 2004. Nevada's fastest protege.
