The Mazda 3 Turbo Short Ram Intake (SRI) takes the place of the restrictive OEM intake system and delivers a better performing option that produces more power and sound from your 2.5L SkyActiv Turbo. Additional benefits also come from the CorkSport SRI in the form of efficiency and improved aesthetics under the hood. Each piece of the CS intake kit was designed with both form and function in mind to provide the best package for your 2.5L SkyActiv Turbo Mazda 3 and CX-30. The additional power gained from the CS SRI was measured at 9-13whp and also added some awesome turbo noise and it can all be installed in as quickly as 30 minutes!
The Mazda 3 2.5L SkyActiv Turbo was the main focus for the design of this CorkSport Short Ram Intake. The kit integrates a precision machined billet aluminum MAF housing, laser cut mounting bracket, reinforced laminar flow silicone elbow and high flow dry-element air filter to achieve the quality fit and performance that is achieved with the CS SRI.
From the factory, the stock air box leaves room on the table to improve the overall driving experience of your Mazda 3 Turbo. One of these key areas includes the sound you hear from your engine. The CorkSport Short Ram Intake unleashes satisfying noises from your turbo and bypass valve which leads to a smile on your face every time you go for a drive. If you haven’t watched the product video yet, it will give you a better idea of the added turbo sound.
The improved flow and efficiency gained from the CS Short Ram Intake contributes to an additional 9-13whp and 9-12wtq around 5600rpm and can be achieved with no tuning or check engine lights.
The CorkSport MAF housings are machined out of 6061-T6 billet aluminum using a CNC to maintain tight tolerances. It is important to achieve this level of tolerance because the MAF sensor is responsible for capturing the amount of air flowing into the engine and is crucial to achieve proper air fuel ratios and drivability.
The main reason behind the increase in performance from the CS Short Ram Intake is attributed to the decrease in turbulence in the intake. This is achieved by replacing the OEM ribbed intake elbow that has a varying internal size, with a smooth 4-ply reinforced silicone elbow. This change helps reduces turbulence which results in increased power and efficiency.
Keeping unwanted debris out of the engine is critical to ensure reliable and long lasting performance. For this reason, the Mazda 3 Turbo Short Ram Intake system includes a 3.5” Dry-Flow Air Filter to provide excellent filtration and airflow that is also washable and reusable.
