Mazda CX-50 SRI Heat Shield. Lower your intake air temps with the quick installation of the CorkSport SRI Heat Shield.
Add to wish list

The CorkSport Heat Shield is an excellent complement to the CS Turbo Short Ram Intake that we offer for the CX-50, further enhancing its performance. By blocking unwanted heat emanating from the radiator, engine, and transmission, the CorkSport Heat Shield enables the CS SRI to draw in fresh air from the OEM snorkel and fender well regions. This reduces heat soak while your CX-50 is stationary and funnels cooler ambient air to the intake more quickly once the vehicle is in motion. Whether you already have a CS SRI or plan to purchase the complete package, the CS Heat Shield is a highly recommended mod to improve the performance of your Mazda.

The CorkSport Advantage

2023 Mazda CX-50 2.5T Intake Shield

Design & Fitment :

The CorkSport Heat Shield for the SkyActiv 2.5 Turbo in the CX-50 is designed to reduce the intake air temperature entering the turbo and thus engine. There are two key advantages to the CorkSport Heat Shield Design: Firstly, the steel heat shield creates a barrier between the intake and the hot engine components such as the radiator, engine block and transmission. Secondly, the heat shield is open to the fender well where there is cooler air and uses the OEM snorkel ducting to pull in cool air from the front grill. Installing the CS Heat Shield is quick and easy from the utilization of the OEM air box mounting points so that no modifications or other brackets are required.

Testing of the CorkSport Heat Shield was critical to make sure the heat shield performed as designed. Testing included both spirited daily driving and remaining stationary to gain a good understanding of how intake air temps are affected with and without the heat shield installed. From these test we found that when the CS Heat Shield is installed, the average reduction in inlet air temperature was almost 10°F cooler over the duration of the test. Check out the graph to the right to see exactly how the CS Heat Shield performed against the CS SRI without the heat shield under similar conditions. The test was more demanding than a typical drive to show how both setups would perform under harsh conditions that you might see sitting in traffic on a hot day.

Off-Road Ready:

If you enjoy the CX-50 for its abilities to go off the beaten path and explore the world then the CS Turbo Short Ram Intake and Heat Shield are the performance parts for you. While the power and turbo noises are...what about getting water into the intake? Well unlike other cold air intakes on the market; the CS design keeps the filter high in the engine bay away from water and debris. We didn’t see the logic in putting the filter down in the fender well near debris, obstacles and water that could much more easily be ingested by the engine.

Materials & Manufacturing:

The CorkSport SRI Heat Shield is manufactured from carbon steel that is laser cut and precision formed. The use of steel over other materials ensures good strength and provides a low amount of heat transfer through the material. The CS Heat Shield is separated into multiple pieces and is riveted together using stainless steel rivets to provide resistance to corrosion so they remain strong and continue to look good for a long time to come. All the heat shield sections are powder coated in wrinkle black to give and durable and great-looking finish when installed in your engine bay.
