How To Install Your CorkSport Mazda3 SRI
It will take you one hour to install the CorkSport Mazda3 Short Ram intake with our easy-to-use instructions.
1 Hour Install Time
I added the SRI with the Cold Air Box on a 2016 2.5L Mazda 3 sGT with about 7K miles on it. From collecting the tools through install, test drive and checking tightness, cleaning up, etc., the whole thing took about 90 minutes - at a leisurely and careful pace. I'm pretty handy but I would not consider myself a wildly experienced car wrench - this was an easy install and the instructions are fantastic. Great place to start on transforming your ride.
Results? Awesome. I noticed a bit quicker throttle response in both regular and sport mode, and the sound is wonderful. It adds a nice, just slightly uncivilized growl to the engine that comes out especially well under hard acceleration. Even when you punch the throttle going around corners just around town it gives a nice round purr from 2,000-3,000 RPM that reminds me a bit of a classic MG or old-school Triumph - not ricey in the least. It adds a satisfying, appropriately sporty-sounding quality to the engine that matches its zippy performance. Quiet at freeway speeds or just cruising. Can't wait to add the axle-back exhaust next.

I just installed this SRI while I was on vacation, then drove it over 500 miles back home. The quality is fantastic and I love the product. The sound is great, and I picked up several MPG since installing it. I can't wait to get the new cold air box! You guys are the best!

Poorly designed and tested. Saw a massive drop in fuel economy with no real performance increase. Not worth the cost. It does sound nice though. Look at the K&N version instead, a heat shield is a must which is missing from this one.
*** TW we have an airbox being released for this intake in 2 weeks ***

Very happy and satisfied with this product as well as overall experience. Fit and finish is clean and is accompanied with concise instructions. Throttle response feels improved and sounds great when opened up. Customer service was top notch. Will be purchasing a few things from you guys again soon!

So, I've had the SRI installed for about 3 weeks. I drive 100 miles a day and can give an honest opinion of the intake. I think its good! If you've every had an SRI on your car before, it's basically the same. There is an increase in the intake noise which helps me hear the quiet engine. Pair it with the exhaust and you have a nice (not too loud) engine soundtrack. In terms of performance, I noticed a slight increase in low end torque and a bit more grunt throughout the power range. Nothing to get all excited about, but enough to help move you along. The other reason to get it??? Have you seen the stock airbox? It's ridiculous. A maze of plastic that the air has to go through just to get to the throttle body. Crazy....no wonder the car is so quiet off the lot. The only downside is that my mpg average has dropped a couple of miles. Of course, that could just be that I am keeping my foot in-it a bit more....

You can hear a slight difference in the "roar" lol of the engine but not worth a penny in regards to added power.

You will get what you pay for with this product and more. I am very happy with my purchase. It gives my mazda 3 a very nice sound and has been increasing my mpg ever since I installed it. 10/10 would buy this again.

Easiest, least-expensive legitimate bolt-on HP & torque available. The roar is immediately noticeable both inside and out of the cabin. The giggle factor per dollar ratio is very high with this mod.

Very easy install with the detailed directions CorkSport provides (took 45 mins at a leisure pace). Great growl sound under the hood and a slightly noticeable boost in HP and torque. Even better with the sport mode on!
Tyler Merrick01/12/2015, 01:45 PM
Took me all of 15 minuets to get it on. I love the growl it has around 2000rpm range and when it is in sport mode it's much more pronounced. Honestly this is the first time I put an intake on that I really felt a differance instead of just hearing it.
Under startup you will hear the intake as the engine goes through its emissions startup for a short period of time. Once that is done it will be louder under acceleration and should be fine while cruising or idling.
Follow Up on the question above: "Legal In CA"
After Viewing the K&N site, they have a long list of states which do not allow these types of intake system.. The question above should have been rephrased: "What states is this short/ram air into legal?" Again and I'm on your side.. but I see no point in selling these products if we can't use them..

K&N is covering their backside by stating they may not be legal in some states. The decision to install one is up to the end user. You may need to install your stock intake back in the car if you go to an emissions test that does visual inspections.
