RARE TURBOCHARGED 5-SPEED -- PERFORMANCE UPGRADES -- UPGRADED AUDIO -- CLEAN CARFAX! Hertel Auto Group is pleased to offer this fun-to-drive 2003 Mazda Protege MAZDASPEED Sedan for sale in Fort Worth, Texas. If you've been craving an entry into the highly popular fast-and-furious crowd of vehicles, but don't quite have the budget necessary to pick up a Subaru WRX; Honda S2000; Honda Civic Si; Nissan Sentra SE-R or a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, than this little Protege MAZDASPEED would make a great choice to get you "into the club". Only 2,000 were built for the 2003 model run - making this a rare car and having great potential as a future collectible. Beginning life as one of Mazda's nifty and well-regarded Protege models, Mazda turned to Callaway Cars to give it a - pardon the pun - boost in performance. They adapted a Garrett T-25 Ball-Bearing Turbo with an integral wastegate, developing a unique turbine housing for the application. Borrowing an air-to-air intercooler and a higher-capacity radiator from Mazda's existing parts bin, these performance upgrades netted 30 more horsepower and 13 lb ft more torque than a standard Protege ES motor. Harnessing that extra power required some upgrades to the transmission. The 5-speed transmission was unchanged, but Mazda installed larger 24mm half-shafts (vs 22mm stock) and a Tochigi Fuji Sangyo KK Super Limited-Slip Differential to send uniform thrust to both front wheels. In other words, not only did they make it faster, they made it capable of handing that increased performance. On top of that, an aftermarket Thunder Intake Manifold and a Tower Brace add to its performance capabilities. All four 215/45ZR17 tires mounted on OEM 17-Inch Alloy Wheels are in very good condition. We did not some squeaking in the front suspension which could be struts. On the outside, this rust-free Protege MAZDASPEED sports one of the best colors for a car like this - Midnight Black - that is complimented by a Charcoal Cloth Interior. Inside, the smoke-free interior of this car is nicely equipped with Sport Bucket Seats; Power Windows, Locks & Mirrors; Cruise Control; Upgraded Pioneer Audio; A/C and more. As with any pre-owned vehicle, it does have the usual amount of cosmetic imperfections that are inherent to a vehicle of this age and mileage. We invite you to view all of the photos that are available on our Web Site and determine for yourself if it meets your expectations for a vehicle of this age and price. If it does, we then welcome you to stop by for a viewing and test-drive of this good-looking 2003 Mazda Protege MAZDASPEED Sports Sedan. According to NADA, it has a Retail Value of $4,750. According to its completely clean CARFAX Report, it has a History-Based Retail Value of $5,680. We've priced it at the lower end of these values and expect this fun little car to sell quickly!
