Mazda speed 3's are little monsters. From the factory they are pretty good except for the friggin torque steer because they are FWD.

For under 3 grand it looks like they have some hefty upgrade capabilties. Nothing new in general for a factory turbo'd car though.

And that "Whooshing" sound you you heard was the wastegate.
