If you’re looking for big power for your Mazdaspeed 3 & Mazdaspeed 6 without the headache of non-OE style fitment, then you have come to the right place. The CorkSport CST6 Turbo owns the Mazdaspeed Stock Flange Turbine Record at 684whp all while using stock flange components.
Years of R&D have allowed us to design a high-performance turbocharger that can respond quickly, support 600+whp, and perform with stock-style turbine flanges. The CST6 features a Garrett CHRA with a Ceramic Dual Ball Bearing Cartridge for improved response and durability for high-boost applications. Testing has pushed the CST6 to 38psi maxing out an auxiliary fuel system flowing 40gph of methanol.
The CST6 features a 0.82 turbine A/R and 4” anti-surge compressor cover to support the balanced turbine & compressor wheel sizing. This design provides ~20psi by 3800-3900rpm and top-end power that can support 8000rpm. The total power under the curve generated creates a fun and powerful setup.
The CST6 Turbo is available in Externally Wastegate (EWG) setup only and does include the necessary EWG installation elbow pipe & V-band clamp. We also offer a direct-fit dump tube that you save $10 on when purchased with a CST6!
The included CorkSport 4.5Bar MAP sensor is designed to offer accurate and near-instantaneous readings to ensure your car is staying safe. Boost pressure readings are accurate all the way out around 48psi while response time for both pressure and temperature is mere 2 milliseconds. The CS 4.5Bar MAP Sensor uses a custom injection molded body that mimics the OEM MAP sensor. This means a quick 15-30 minute plug-and-play install with no need for custom wiring or expensive adapter harnesses.
The CorkSport CST6 is designed to provide big power potential without the need for a custom turbine flange. It has proven to make mid 500WHP on a “moderate” 26-28psi or be pushed to its limit and make 684WHP at 38-40psi. Don’t think this means poor spool characteristics though as the CST6 makes 20psi by 3800-3900RPM!
The CST6 uses 0.82 A/R turbine housing in EWG setup only with an optimized scroll design to maximize power potential of the stock Mazda flange. These features offer great spool characteristics for a turbo of this size without impacting maximum power potential. Best of all, it fits exactly where your OEM turbo did!
To go with the high-performance turbine housing is a 4” inlet compressor cover with anti-surge ports. A 4” inlet was chosen to remove any choke points in the system when used with 3.5” or 4” intake while the anti-surge ports increase the compressor map width for peak performance. Again it maintains OEM fitment so you do not have to modify your existing parts.
The CST6 uses a tried and true dual ceramic ball bearing Garrett CHRA. We went ball-bearing with the CST6 to increase durability, especially since the large wheels and high boost levels cause a greater load on the CHRA. We specially modified the Garrett CHRA though to fit with the OEM Mazda oil drain line to simplify your installation.
Moving the air in the CST6 is again a tried and true combo: the Garrett GTX3576R wheels. Featuring a billet 11-blade compressor wheel rated at 64 lb/min and a 10-blade turbine wheel, the CST6 spools impressively fast, making 20psi by 3800-3900RPM.
Utilizing the Gen1 GTX76 billet compressor wheel, the CST6 can efficiently support 64 lbs/min flowrate and boost pressures to 40psi.
Paired with the compressor wheel is a Garrett GT35 turbine wheel. This wheel uses a 10-blade design which reduces overall rotating mass and thus improves response and spool.
In testing it became clear that an internal wastegate setup simply wouldn’t cut it for the CST6. So we perfected the CST6 with an EWG housing for the best in boost control. Each CST6 comes with the elbow and clamp to fit a Tial 44mm (or equivalent) wastegate. If you want to further simplify your install, be sure to pick up the optional CS direct fit dump tube so no fab is needed on your CST6 install!
Each CST6 comes with new gaskets, turbine studs, turbine nuts, new banjo bolts with crush washers, and the coolant lines you need for installation.
It will take you five hours to install the CorkSport CST6 Turbo Upgrade with our easy-to-use instructions.

I haven't built the motor yet but am debating on putting this turbo with the stock internals. Would it still be efficient to go with this option on stock internals or should I just stick with the CST5?
Depending on tuning and supporting mods, you may end up with a 'lazy turbo', with the CST6. The prime power range for this turbo is 500-700hp.
I am debating on this or the CST5. I am looking for 550ish AWHP. I have 8th port etc. I will daily drive it. Is this ok for daily or does it spool to late? What is the size comparison? GTX3582?
I recommend this turbo. It will still do great for a daily, and spool is still quick for how much power you want to make.
