Wake Up Your 2016+ Miata with Our Cat Back Exhaust System

Give your 2016+ MX5 Miata the power it needs with our cat back exhaust system.

The CorkSport Cat Back Exhaust System gives your new 2016 Miata the power it needs without the annoying drone.

We know you’ve been eyeing the CorkSport Axle Back Exhaust System for your 2016+ Mazda ND Miata, so let this catch your attention even further! CorkSport is proud to announce the release of the Cat Back Exhaust System for the 2016+ Miata!

Give your 2016+ MX5 Miata the power it needs with our cat back exhaust system.

Every great exhaust system begins with two main ingredients:

1. High quality materials

2. Exceptional manufacturing

Here at CorkSport, we realize that without these two key factors, no matter the design, a great product is just not attainable. Every CorkSport exhaust system is manufactured from T304 Stainless Steel and precision bent using CNC mandrel tube benders. The mandrel benders maintain a consistent diameter throughout the many bends that exhaust systems may have. Then, all necessary welds are performed with TIG welding to insure a long-lasting and rust free connection.

The fun doesn’t stop there! The exhaust system needs to sound and look great also. The CorkSport Cat Back Exhaust System features two high-flow resonators to reduce and eliminate unwanted drone without restricting the exhaust flow. Speaking of flow, the exhaust system is constructed from 60.5mm diameter tubing vs the OEM 54mm to further improve flow and provide a deeper exhaust note.

If you’re concerned that the full cat back exhaust system may be a bit too loud for your liking, don’t worry. The CorkSport exhaust system is available as the full cat back exhaust or just the axle back exhaust.

Check out the two video sound clips below to figure out the best exhaust note for your Miata.

And for the “cherry on top,” the CorkSport exhaust system features dual double wall exhaust tips to maintain the OEM look, but with a higher level of style. Wake up your Miata today with the CorkSport Performance Exhaust System!

Everything A Noob Should Know About Mazda Lowering Springs

Drop your Mazda for an aggressive look and better handling with the CorkSport lowering springs.

Increase handling and give your Mazda an aggressive look with CorkSport lowering springs.

Whether you want a lower center of gravity for better handling or you want to get rid of that ugly wheel well gap, lowering springs are a great buy.

From hitting the track on the weekend to a spirited drive through the countryside, CorkSport lowering springs are the upgrade you’ve been looking for. By adding our lowering springs, you’re lowering the center of gravity. This allows the car to stay more planted to the road.

One of the biggest things to note on the stock suspension is how far upward the suspension travels when hitting bump. It can make the car feel like it wants to lift off of the road depending on how fast you’re taking corners. Lowering springs help correct the car’s suspension travel when you hit a bump in a turn.

Lowering springs also have about 25% increased stiffness. For the Mazdaspeed platform, increased stiffness in the rear is a must. Mazdaspeeds like to squat pretty hard when hitting full boost, so any way you can manage to stiffen up the rear is a great modification for your car.

Adding lowering springs also gives your baby amazing eye appeal and a much more aggressive look. Whether you drive a MS3, MS6, Mazda 3, or MX-5, lowering springs will get rid of that ugly wheel well gap. If your model wasn’t just mentioned, springs will still work for you too! The result is a Mazda that carries a much cleaner look and gives you the ability to take it to the track if you want to.

Drop your Mazda for an aggressive look and better handling with the CorkSport lowering springs.

Some people want to drop their Mazda as much as possible, and some don’t. CorkSport lowering springs don’t deliver a super aggressive drop. If you’re not interested in scraping your front bumper on every road bump, the CorkSport lowering springs have the right drop for you, and provide the increased handling capabilities you’re looking for.

Just Released: CorkSport Cold Air Intake System for the 2016+ MX-5

Introducing the CorkSport Cold Air Intake System for the 2016+ Mazda ND Miata. Maintain your cool intake air temperatures without the restriction of the OEM intake.

2016-Miata-Intake-Airbox-700

The CorkSport CAI System was designed with performance, functionality, and significance in mind. This is not just a piece of metal pipe with an air filter on the end. This was thought out and designed with the latest technologies to give you a no compromise intake system for your favorite weekend toy.

2016-Miata-Mx5-Cold-Air-Intake-System

First, we focused on the system performance since we all want to go fast, right?

This proved to be more difficult than expected. Mazda did a good job designing their intake, but they did leave some room for improvement when you combine hard parts and a proper tune. Now, this isn’t surprising since cars have become more and more dependent on the tune, not just the physical parts. Below is a dyno-graph of the OEM intake system versus the CorkSport CAI System; a net gain of 3-4 WHp with the OEM tune.

So, what makes the CorkSport CAI System superior?

We wanted to create a system to provide smooth laminar flow which means removing any abrupt edges, sudden expansions, and tight radius bends. First, we use an AEM performance dry-flow filter that features an internal velocity stack design. Then we matched the billet aluminum MAF inner diameter to the filter for a seamless edge that provides smooth flow to the MAF sensor. Leaving the MAF, you see another velocity stack expansion with just a 2mm edge as the air enters the 4-layer reinforced silicone with large sweeping bends. Check out the cut-away view below!

Next, is the functionality of the CorkSport CAI System. We wanted the CAI to be a quick and easy installation without the need to remove the bumper or any other intensive parts. The cold air box is designed in CAD and through the iterative process of design, a 3D print, and test fittings, we were able to produce a box that fits great and still utilizes the OEM rubber isolators for mounting and the OEM cold air ducting.

Finally, we wanted to ensure significance of the CorkSport CAI System, because nobody wants a piece of pipe with a filter on the end flopping around in their engine bay. We knew our awesome customers wanted more than just great performance. We know you want it to look great and that you’ll want to brag about it because we’re all car guys and gals, right? The CorkSport CAI uses premium silicone, a beautiful black anodized billet aluminum MAF housing, stainless fasteners, and high quality thermoformed ABS that blends nicely into your engine bay.

It’s Finally Here: The Cold Air Box for Mazda 3 and Mazda 6

Designed to perfectly fit your Mazda 3 and your Mazda 6. Our cold air box is designed for easy install and easy filter maintenance.

We’ve heard your cries and made you wait long enough. The long-awaited CorkSport Cold Air Box has finally arrived!

Cool down your 2014+ Mazda 3 and 2014+ Mazda engine bay

The CorkSport Cold Air Box was designed for the 2014+ Mazda 3 and Mazda 6 that are equipped with a 2.0L or 2.5L SkyActiv engine. The CorkSport Cold Air Box was also designed with the current CorkSport SRI in mind, so all of our awesome past customers don’t have to buy a new SRI just to get the cold air box.

When we set out to develop the cold air box, we knew we needed to design it with more than just cold air in mind. It needed to look great, function great, and be easy to use. And that’s exactly what we did.

First on our list was figuring out how to perfectly source cold air for your engine.

Mazda has worked hard developing a car that’s highly efficient; one of the ways to do that is via the aerodynamics of the car. There can be sizable aerodynamic losses when a car has large voids and/or openings in the front, sides, and under the car. Mazda did such a great job with the aerodynamic design that there are no openings in the front of the Mazda 3 and 6 other than the radiator, but we don’t want to source hot air from the radiator.

This left us with two options:

1) Ask you, our customer, to cut holes in your brand new car or

2) Utilize the cold air source that Mazda already worked so hard to design.

This wasn’t a difficult decision to make.

The CorkSport Cold Air Box pairs perfectly with the CorkSport Short Ram Intake.

Through an iterative process of CMM (coordinate measuring machine), design, a 3D-print, and test fittings, we were able to design a cold air box that utilized the OEM cold air source and re-use the OEM rubber mounting isolators.

Designed to perfectly fit your Mazda 3 and your Mazda 6. Our cold air box is designed for easy install and easy filter maintenance.

Using the OEM rubber isolators and mounts allows the box to move and flex to account for the engine’s normal movement during operation. Pair this with the easy to use thumb screws for the lid and filter servicing is a breeze.

Get your 2014 Mazda 3 the cold air it needs with the CorkSport cold air box that goes perfectly with the CorkSport SRI.

Finally, we wanted the CorkSport Cold Air Box to look like it belongs in your engine bay. The color, finish, and manufacturing method were all chosen because they closely resemble OEM parts. Like most OEM plastic parts found in the engine bay, the CorkSport Cold Air Box is manufactured from ABS, which is durable and resistant to the high heat found in your engine bay.

Yes folks, this means you can have your cake and eat it too. Get it February 24th, 2016!

Cheers,

CorkSport
