We’re Listening… Big Turbo Products !!

 Got Boost ?

We’ve heard through the grapevine that some people think of CorkSport as a “Bolt-On” company. NO WAY! It’s often said that you need to go to XYZ or ABC or some other micro-tuner for big turbo (BT) products.

It’s true that we don’t yet offer a big MAF intake or upgraded manifolds and the like for the BT crowd. This is a matter of economics not passion or engineering capability. Fortunately for all of us, more and more Mazdaspeed3 owners are pushing towards 400 WHP and beyond. We believe there are enough of you out there to support some big time products. Before we get into those, let’s revisit a collection of our products that we’ve released in the last year that no other Mazda performance company can touch. Most can’t even check one of these parts off their list.

No-one in this market innovates at the pace we do at CorkSport. No-one in this market comes close to releasing the quantity of products we do at CorkSport. Check out what’s in the pipeline* for our BT friends.

We are also working on CorkSport 3.5” Big-MAF intake and CorkSport Fuel Injectors for MZR-DISI among many other projects.

We are a dedicated Mazda performance company. You’ll find no Ford, Subaru, BMW or other platforms on our website. Our profits go back into making more Mazda parts. That’s it.

You told us you want to go BT with CorkSport. We’re listening.

As always, we appreciate your business and feedback. Reach out!

* Keep in mind that not all products in development make it to retail. Sometimes we develop a part and find there is no real value and abandon it –  TMIC cold-pipe. Other times, the cost to launch a new part is such that we can’t hit a price point that you will accept.

Lower Prices, More Power, and White Silicone!

White Silicone is HERE!

After a few teasers, and much demand, we finally are releasing White Silicone Options for the following parts.

So if you want a unique look or a car color matching intake, the White Silicone option just might be for you!

Looking for an intake?? Looking for a sale?? We’ve got both!


We already know that the CorkSport Short Ram Intake is the best in the game, but what could make it better? How about a lower price for Xmas? If you haven’t noticed our price drop on the CorkSport Stage I Short Ram Intake, Stage II Short Ram Intake or Cold Air Intake for the Mazdaspeed 3, Mazdaspeed 6, and Mazda CX-7 then take a look! These prices are for a limited time only so if you or a friend have been waiting to purchase, now is your chance!

The Stage I Intakes have dropped from $179.99 to $149.99

The Stage II Intakes have dropped from $249.99 to $219.99

The Stage III Cold Air Intake has dropped from $279.99 to $249.99 without Turbo Inlet Pipe and from $349.99 to $319.99 with the inlet pipe.

So why would we drop the price? Easy! We want to get you the most for your money this holiday season. This means you can now give your Mazda more power, for less!


Installation help is on the way!

We are constantly searching for ways to improve your experience with CorkSport. Many times we re-visit our parts to see what we can do to improve them; lately we are also starting to turn our attention to improving the instructions that our parts come with. You’ll notice the change starting with our latest products and also some of your favorites. We recently upgraded the instructions for all of our Mazdaspeed 3 intakes to fill them with more pictures and easier to understand steps. Here’s an example:



 As you can see, the pictures are full color with easy to find call-outs of key items and steps. In addition to coming printed out with every CorkSport part, you will find them easy to link to on every product page and easily viewable on any computer, tablet or phone. Just one more way that CorkSport has your back!

NEW RELEASE: Front Brake Pads for the Mazda 3, Mazda 5 and Mazda 2

Less Brake Dust and More Stopping Power:

After the overwhelming success of the CorkSport Front Brake Pads for the Mazdaspeed 3 and Front Brake Pads for the Mazdaspeed 6 we decided to offer the pads to all Mazda 3, Mazda 5 and Mazda 2 owners.


Designed using a proprietary semi-metallic and ceramic formula, CorkSport brake pads offer superior stopping capability without compromising wear and unlike other metallic brake pads on the market, do not require a “warm-up” period to perform to their full potential.

The CorkSport brake pads are a low dust solution that will help to keep your wheels nice and clean and this highly durable compound provides less fade on your brake pads. Made for superior performance in all weather conditions, the CorkSport brake pads have been thoroughly tested for endurance and braking power both on and off the track.

“Upgrading your brake pads will not only provide performance improvements for your Mazda, but provides added safety for your vehicle.” Said CorkSport owner and race car driver, Derrick Ambrose “Having driven on these pads extensively, I can say without a doubt that you will notice improved stopping performance and braking responsiveness with CorkSport brake pads on your vehicle”

The CorkSport Brake Pads come with all you need for a front pad replacement for the Mazda 2 and Mazda 5. We have front and rear sets for the Mazda 3.

CorkSport brake pads are warrantied against all defects from workmanship and materials, come with full color installation instructions, all of the needed installation hardware, and knowledgeable telephone installation support.


We have the Mazda 3 or Mazda 5 Front Pads available for $69.99 here: https://www.corksport.com/corksport-front-brake-pads-for-mazda-3-and-mazda-5.html

Mazda 3 Rear Pads are Available for $60.99 here: https://www.corksport.com/corksport-rear-brake-pads-for-mazdaspeed-3.html

The Fuel Pump Finale… (Sort Of)

How To Create The Best Pump on the Market

With our fuel pump design complete (link to fuel pump blogs 1,2,3,4), we now turned our attention to the details. We wanted a coating to protect the piston and decrease friction during operation. After testing dozens of compounds, we settled on a very strong coating that is applied with a proprietary process. This process allows for an exceptional bond with the metal, lower static friction, and increases the surface hardness. Before applying the coating however, we wanted to make sure we had the best part possible underneath it. Imagine having an orange that is covered in titanium. The surface might be incredibly hard, but with no substance to back that up you will eventually lose the shape.

After choosing a very strong alloy for our internals, we then machine their tolerances to an incredible 6 microns! To make sure the tolerances are paired for life, we serialize the parts to prevent any issues and to track the life of the pumps. We then surface treat the pumps to achieve the alloys maximum strength; only after the maximum hardness is achieved do we apply our surface treatments to bring the overall durability to an even higher level.

Numbered Fuel Pumps from CorkSport

Many companies would be finished at this point but, at CorkSport, our research has shown us that when a coating is applied it is very difficult to maintain a smooth surface. In fact, we found that the coating has many microscopic hills and valleys. There would be no reason for us to go through all the work of having incredible tolerances if we were just going to ruin them with an uneven coating. In order to correct this, the pistons are then re-machined back to their original single micron tolerance. The CorkSport Fuel Pump Internals are the lightest aftermarket kit on the market for faster response and decreased cam wear. At this point it may seem like we are flying this pump to Mars but we just wanted to make the best part on the market, and it worked.

Final CorkSport Fuel Pump Internals

Pump More Than Any Other Kit Available

All of this adds up to an improved pumping volume that is over 8% higher than all other pumps we tested and 50% larger capacity than the stock pump. When other pumps are losing efficiency because of their design or tolerances, ours is just hitting its stride.  That difference in the real world is going to be higher HP numbers, safer air/fuel ratios and the ability to go that much further without worrying about your fuel supply.

Because of the increase in fuel we highly recommend that you get a new tune for your car. We have developed custom Cobb AccessPort specific maps for this pump.

The 33% Faster, 50% Smaller, 100% More Innovative CorkSport Bypass Valve

The CorkSport Mazdaspeed MZR Bypass Valve (Patent Pending)

With the new Patent Pending CorkSport Mazdaspeed MZR Bypass Valve you can have all the goodies of an aftermarket Bypass Valve, in a smaller size. By using a unique patent pending wave spring design, CorkSport was able to shrink the body of our bypass valve to almost half the size of stock. Along with this, the wave spring was tested to respond 33% faster than a stock valve. Since the blow off valve is a safety feature to protect the turbo from premature wear, this increase in acceleration can help increase the longevity of the turbo and the system as a whole. For more about all the innovations in the CorkSport bypass valve, click here.

So why do you need to upgrade? Well, the stock Bypass Valve is pretty good, but it falls short in two areas. When it comes to holding boost the stock Bypass Valve often will start leaking at anywhere upwards of 17psi. If you plan on having your boost much higher than stock you could have issues with leaks. Of course, you also upgrade a bypass valve to get that unique sound.

While the unique patent pending CorkSport Mazdaspeed MZR Bypass Valve will provide both a unique sound and hold more boost, our BPV will also provide some other key benefits that, until now, have been pretty much ignored by others.

The CorkSport MZR Bypass valve utilizes a compact wave style spring which allows the stock valve size to be decreased by half. This patent pending design allows room for other engine upgrades such as Big Intakes, Airboxes, Front Mount Intercooler setups and more. Using a wave style spring that is 20mm in height compared to the stock 40mm not only enabled us to shrink the overall size of the valve, but also shrinks response time to lightning quick speeds. Though both the stock spring and our wave spring provide the same force and move the same distance before coil-bind, a smaller wave style spring can respond up to 33% faster.

A smaller spring allowed us to decrease the overall size of the piston while still pushing the piston area out to ensure a larger venting area. This reduces the time it takes to vent air and allows any turbo, especially larger turbos, to vent more efficiently.

No matter which benefit is more important to you, whether you value long turbo life, unique sound, more engine space, or holding higher boost, the CorkSport Mazdaspeed MZR Bypass Valve should be your first choice.
