If you go to the Garage link, and type in Mazda 3 2004, you can find some results.
EDIT: lots of options for filtering by year, engine size and trim level too!

Underwhelming to say the least. Any other cars that are similar to a 3?

Avoid the 2.3L and get the 2.0L engine, it's more fuel efficient. There are several options for transmissions and final drive gears.

The Ford Focus shares a lot in common with the Mazda3. Engine, transmission, and even the suspension. The Focus has taller gears and lower profile cam. The Mazda3 has VVT though.
