It is not really possible to "disconnect" a turbo. Its bolted to the exhaust manifold and all the exhaust gas is routed through it. you would have to try to find a header or exhaust manifold the was built for that car and not designed to run the turbo. Even if you were able to do this you would still have to have someone advance the timing back to where it should be for a natuarlly aspirated engine and re program the computer / change fuel enjector sizes to get the air fuel ratio back to ideal. (running without the turbo would cause your engine to run rich with fuel and cause engine fouling problems not to mention poor fuel economy.)

2007 Mazda CX-7 turbo. Strong exhaust smell in cabin through the a/c vents. Only happens when hard acceleration.

I would see the dealer on this issue, this may be a built in problem and there may be a dealer bulletin on it.

2009 mazda CX-7 an interference or non-interference engine?

the book does not specify that it is an interference engine but it specifically states not to turn the crank shaft with the chain disconnected. To me this means, treat it as possible valve damage if the chain has broken or if you turn the crank with the chain missing.

Here's what it says Heather,
  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.I would say,go for it.
