Living in Eastern Europe and being a student can only get you so far. Though I wouldn't consider it underpowered as it doesn't struggle when accelerating and I can easily overtake most cars I meet on the road (again, Eastern Europe so modern cars gotta beware of pic related).

2014 mazda 3.

If you got the manual transmission you got the 150 hp 2.0 engine, which you can't boost. Sure, there are bolt ons and a 93 octane tune, but you'll end up with...oh, about the same power as the 2.5, but with 2/3 of the gas mileage. Its adequate as is.

At this point all I want to do is get the stupid diverter valve replaced so my heater will work, and try to get it looking nice, but I couldn't afford a new car and the paint is full of pits and scratches from bugs, gravel roads, scraping up against a house, and getting caught in the hailstorm after the eclipse and I made the mistake of using generic touch up paint, not that I know if the stuff Mazda sells perfectly matches.

If I can get the paint to look okay then MAYBE I'll install LED DRL headlight units and tail light bulbs and put a long spoiler light in in the top of the back window, get some decent rims, and if I'm crazy, swap in the skyactiv-x (and a JDM AWD transmission).
>>

305s can't make power due to smaller cylinder bores killing air flow compared to the 350.

Nearly 4000 pounds/1800kg with no driver and nothing in it. 101hp/240nm diesel engine.

Its fine as long as its just me, a passenger, the toolbox and perhaps a bed with some cans of diesel, equipment and whatnot - but as soon as I'll load the bed heavy and hook up a trailer like pic related with a 800 pound snowmobile, fuel, pulk, comms equipment and so on hills become really fucking tough.
