Long Lost Love for MS6 Owners

Due to the number of requests we have had, and the fact that we love our Mazdaspeed 6 peeps, we have decided to bring the aluminum skid plate back!

Good day, CorkSport family! This is Luke here at CorkSport HQ in Vancouver, Washington.

I’ve got some very exciting news that I know my Mazdaspeed 6 guys will be very happy about. As most of you know, CorkSport listens to our customers and, after listening, we deliver. Ever since we removed the aluminum skid plate from our product list, we’ve received many requests for it. Due to the number of requests, and because we love our Mazdaspeed 6 peeps, we decided to bring the aluminum skid plate back! That’s right, we’re bringing it back to the site! Here’s a quick reminder of the benefits that the Mazdaspeed 6 aluminum skid plate gives your ride:

  •   Replace OEM plastic skid plate with sturdier aluminum
  •   Better protection during the winter months
  •   Keeps the engine bay cleaner
  •   More robust protection for people in lowered rides
  •   Easy access to changing oil
  •   Direct bolt on

Starting July 18, CorkSport will have the components back on the shelf and we’ll be ready to start shipping these out. These new Mazdaspeed 6 aluminum skid plates will be limited quantity — only 20 skid plates — so be sure to get one before we have to have more made.

Starting July 18th CorkSport will have the components back on the shelf, and we will be ready to start shipping these out.

If you would like to pre-order, please call us at 360-260-2675.  Let’s get this party started folks!

Due to the number of requests we have had, and the fact that we love our Mazdaspeed 6 peeps, we have decided to bring the aluminum skid plate back!

Cheers,

CorkSport’s New Mazdaspeed Front Lip

This Mazdaspeed with CorkSport's new front lip has style and speed.
Check out this stylish Mazdaspeed.

Hello, CorkSport family! If you haven’t visited our New Products page lately, then you’ve been missing out on some cool product releases. Look at this picture. Can you guess which part I’m referring to?

I’ll give you a hint. It starts with the letter L, and ends with an I and a P. That’s right — the lip!

Why we created a new Mazdaspeed front lip

At CorkSport, we’re committed to supporting the Mazda community and always strive to bring new, cool mods to the table. Mazda decided they’re no longer going to support the Mazdaspeed platform, but as a leader in the Mazda Performance market, we’re doing our part to keep the platform alive. Due to that commitment, we believe it’s up to us to push the platform and make sure we’re the leading competitor in this market. To achieve this, we did some research and found what the market was missing.

Our research and commitment manifested in the creation of a part that increases your Mazdaspeed’s style: our new front lip. In our research, we learned that people have been trying to mold STI lips onto the front of their Mazdaspeed3s, and we knew the direct fitment style CorkSport is known for would not only give us a HUGE edge over eBay components but would allow us to create an incredible part.

The new CorkSport front lip

With a new CorkSport Mazdaspeed front lip, you know your ride is going to look stylish.
Take a look at that sick CorkSport Mazdaspeed Front Lip.

In developing this front lip, our engineer Barrett spent countless hours making sure this part would be a direct fitment for ease of installation and would deliver a clean, sleek look. Molded from 3mm ABS plastic with a black coating, our new front lip is a no-brainer when it comes to adding extra style to your Mazdaspeed. As always, we tested this lip to make sure that it would withstand high winds (around 140mph, to be exact) for all of our “Mexico” racers. Passing this test gave us the confidence we needed to be sure that we could offer a product that not only looked good but could withstand daily driving abuse.

Thinking about purchasing this front lip? Here’s what you need to know:

  1. $224.99 is the current list price — that’s 10 percent off the original price of $249.99!
  2. Two-year warranty from manufacturer defect.
  3. One-hour install time.
  4. With the purchase of the front lip, you get a free CorkSport trucker hat — only available through the purchase of this front lip!

Please note: This lip will not work with the CorkSport aluminum skid tray. The mounting locations do not line up.

Lastly, don’t forget, when you make a purchase with CorkSport you become part of our family. When you invest in us, we invest in you.

Cheers,

Luke @ CS

CorkSport Joins Christmas Toy Drive 2016

A couple of weeks ago, CorkSport was contacted about a toy drive put together by a local car group called Tuner Coalition. They had heard about a group of kids at a local hospital that had hardly ever experienced a true Christmas. CorkSport loves to give back to the community, so we wanted to make some kids super happy this holiday season.

We all know that Christmas is about giving, so that’s what we did. I learned there is no better feeling than knowing your contribution will make a world of difference in someone’s life. That is our main goal here at CorkSport. We strive everyday to help our customers meet their goals and enjoy their modifications. It’s all about bringing happiness to others. And just look at how happy these kids will be.


This was not only a toy drive, but also a car meet. I brought my Mazdaspeed, and there was a first generation Mazda 3 that had some cool exterior upgrades. I also had the pleasure of meeting some really cool people. Even though we drove different cars, we were there for the same reason and shared the same passion for cars.

I had the pleasure of talking to a guy that owned an Ecoboost Mustang. He had a lethal performance turbo kit installed on the cusp of making 500whp. Needless to say, his engine bay was really clean; it had been meticulously hydro-dipped by a friend of his. I always liked the Ecoboost Mustang for its indirect relationship with Mazdaspeeds. The car definitely looked cool, and drew a lot of attention. He was a very humble guy and only had nice things to say about the my Mazdaspeed. He saw the front mount intercooler on my car and instantly had to know what was under the hood.

CorkSport loves to be a part of these types of events, and we encourage anyone to participate as well. We are here to help our community in any way possible. We would love to hear about some of your holiday car meets, and any kind of fundraisers you may have attended this holiday season! Get in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter to share your mods and stories.

Cheers,

Luke

CorkSport Mazdaspeed MZR Bypass Valve

Gifting one of our newer parts is always a surefire way to deliver a great holiday treat.

And installation is a cinch. It easily bolts into your Mazdaspeed with no mechanical modifications to replace an undersized OEM turbo and supports a range of 250–450 horsepower. You’ll come in first place this holiday season if you splurge on this gift. And hell, if you don’t get it, this is as good a place as any to cash in those checks from your aunts and uncles.

ZeroEdge Full HD 1080p Car Dashboard Camera Bundle

New Product: Mazdaspeed High Pressure Fuel Line

Mazdaspeed High Pressure Fuel Line

If you are on the forums or Facebook groups, you have probably seen the “I smell gas under the hood of my speed” post by that person trying to troubleshoot their car. Then, 10 minutes later, they post again announcing the stock hardline from the pump to the rail has cracked on their speed. And now they have to visit the dealer to get a new one for $100, which will likely fail in the same manner.

We grew tired of seeing the same thing come up, so we are happy to announce a solution the CorkSport Braided High Pressure Fuel Line.  The line provides a durable and reliable solution to the crack-prone OEM hard line that loves to leave you stranded.

Mazdaspeed High Pressure Fuel Line

We made our line out of 314L stainless steel fittings with a SAE100R14 Stainless Steel Braided PTFE for excellent pressure, corrosion, and temperature limits. The Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) and Stainless Steel have excellent properties that make our line compatible with gasoline (petrol to our UK friends), ethanol (for all you E85 junkies), methanol, and beer (we do not recommend running your car on beer, but if you need a straw in a pinch…).

High Pressure Fuel Line installed

Our lines were yield tested to 7100psi before a failure occurred in the form of a small leak, which is a safety factor of 3.2 for an OEM fuel system at its limits.

This is one of those parts that is a must buy, not just a nice-to-have. Fuel fires are nothing to mess with.
