Had Zach and the guys from Corksport help me with the Combo purchase of the 2.5 SRI + Cold Air Box which was a big improvement to my Stock 2.5 GT Knight Sports.

Alot of people just do the SRI.. sure that is your call but we had the car put on a Dyno and the increase was what was advertised and than some! I have a BORLA to compliment this upgrade and a Corksport Midpipe and the Air flow increase all around has added enough to compete with a GTI and can beat BRZ and GT86s.

Had this part for a week so far and impressed as I am also trying now to run 91 and see if the increase goes further.

Thank you @Corksport I will promote your parts moving forward!

I purchased the short Ram Intake and was extremely impressed with the quality of the product as well as the ease of install. I also appreciated the power increase it provided to my 2.5L.
I've had the Sri installed on my 2015 sp25 along with the cold air box for a couple of weeks now and I am very impressed, I have noticeable gains in both throttle response and fuel efficiency. I'll be installing the cat back exhaust system shortly to go along with this install. I did have an issue with the cold air box vibrating against the ecu mount due to it being larger than the oem air box which left very little clearance between the two however this was overcome by applying a thick piece of neoprene rubber between the air box and ecu mount. All in all I'd highly recommend anyone with a 2014+ 3 to go ahead with the Sri / air box install you won't be disappointed. Luke from south Australia.
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. 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.

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..
