The CorkSport Advantage

Mazda 6 SRI Dyno data

Performance Gains:

The Short Ram Intake is an easy performance upgrade for your Mazda 6. Designed for 2014+ Mazda 6 2.5L engines, the SRI removes the air restrictions the OEM system has. This improved design adds up to 6WHP in our testing and desirable driver feedback. Dramatically reduce intake restrictions and get an impressive improvement in power throughout the entire RPM range with the Mazda6 SkyActiv Short Ram Intake System.

Sound and Style:

The Mazda 6 SRI intake adds some show and tell to your engines appearance and sound. Your choice of black, blue, and red filters and silcone provides you with a customizable look to your engine bay. Mix and match to make the look that is perfect for your style. The psshh sound from the short ram intake will have driving for more!

Machined MAF housing for the SRI Mazda6

Precision Machined:

Every CorkSport cold air/short ram intake features a meticulously engineered billet MAF housing. The use of a billet MAF housing guarantees that the intake's diameter is identical to the OEM's diameter providing a smooth airflow for accurate sensor readings.

SRI Silicone options in red, blue, and black

Dryflow Filter:

The CorkSport SRI uses a Dry-Flow media to ensure long lasting performance and durability. The filter offers an inverted cone design that allows more air to enter the system from the top. The non-woven media does not require oil to filter or trap dirt and shreds it under the vibration of the engine. The filter is reusable after washing allowing for a longer lifespan. Pair this with the SRI filter sock for a long lasting filtration system.

Purchased at the beginning of this week and accidentally gave the wrong shipping address. Customer service was excellent and Brian B. got everything sorted out for me and out the door in the same day! Install was super simple. About 30 min. including set up. I have noticed a bit of a power difference and the car has a more aggressive sound under heavier throttle. I even noticed a slight whistle today when I was out for a drive. So thanks guys! I’m driving around with a big smile on my face(:
Quick and easy install with no CEL. Instantly smoothed out the terrible throttle response these engines have. Also it added a nice sound, not ricey either, and definitely added a bit of power especially at high RPM.
Super easy to install, took maybe 30 minutes including finding my tools. Sounds great as well!
very easy to install and you do NOT need any knowledge at all. the full colored instructions are extremely simple to follow. I love the swooshing sound of air sucking when you tap the gas pedal!!!
I really like the sound and feel of the car after this installation. It has a nice sounding, agressive growl between 1500-3500 rpm that is not overwhelming or annoying. The breathing and power between 3500-6000 on the highway is great! 1/2 hr to install, and worth the price.
feel like my car is breathing better.

good adding to my car.

like it even i have not tried others.
Zoom Zoom. Installed this on my 2015 Mazda6 i Sport 2.5L in ~15min. Noticed she was a bit peppier and the exhaust tones are noticeably better, but not over done. Well worth the price!
An absolutely flawless product that is incredibly simple to install!

Intake sounds great when you get on it & full wail is amazing!

Throttle response is now immediate compared to the stock setup.

Fits 2016's no problem!

I am comparing the stock intake to the CorkSport intake...

Short Ram Air Intake: Very quiet.

When stepping on the gas, I hear a nice growl sound that is not annoying, but good to the ears.

As for power gain, I can definitely feel the additional torque; it's not a crazy improvement, but definitely worth the money.

If you need to start somewhere with a mod to increase performance, check this little baby out.
Awesome part. Wakes the car right up. Better exhaust note throughout the RPM range, slight improvement in power, and less restriction. Couldnt ask for a better intake for the Skyactiv

I watched the install video for the about the 45 second mark he removes a short black tube from the bottom of the factory air box and places it on the front of the hood area. I don't see him replace it after the install...does this part not get put back on after replacing it? What does this tube go to? I have a 2019 Mazda 6 non turbo and have been looking for a site to get some mods...I think I have found my place here! Thank you.

I have a 2016 Mazda 6 2,5L. I'm considering buying this but I've read somewhere that the 2014-2018 Mazda3 & 2013-2017 Mazda6 Cold Air Box starves the engine when used. Can you verify this or did you do test with both the CAI and CAB? Also, to you ship to Belgium? Kind regards
