It’s Finally Here: The Cold Air Box for Mazda 3 and Mazda 6

We’ve heard your cries and made you wait long enough. The long-awaited CorkSport Cold Air Box has finally arrived!

Cool down your 2014+ Mazda 3 and 2014+ Mazda engine bay

The CorkSport Cold Air Box was designed for the 2014+ Mazda 3 and Mazda 6 that are equipped with a 2.0L or 2.5L SkyActiv engine. The CorkSport Cold Air Box was also designed with the current CorkSport SRI in mind, so all of our awesome past customers don’t have to buy a new SRI just to get the cold air box.

When we set out to develop the cold air box, we knew we needed to design it with more than just cold air in mind. It needed to look great, function great, and be easy to use. And that’s exactly what we did.

First on our list was figuring out how to perfectly source cold air for your engine.

Mazda has worked hard developing a car that’s highly efficient; one of the ways to do that is via the aerodynamics of the car. There can be sizable aerodynamic losses when a car has large voids and/or openings in the front, sides, and under the car. Mazda did such a great job with the aerodynamic design that there are no openings in the front of the Mazda 3 and 6 other than the radiator, but we don’t want to source hot air from the radiator.

This left us with two options:

1) Ask you, our customer, to cut holes in your brand new car or

2) Utilize the cold air source that Mazda already worked so hard to design.

This wasn’t a difficult decision to make.

The CorkSport Cold Air Box pairs perfectly with the CorkSport Short Ram Intake.

Through an iterative process of CMM (coordinate measuring machine), design, a 3D-print, and test fittings, we were able to design a cold air box that utilized the OEM cold air source and re-use the OEM rubber mounting isolators.

Designed to perfectly fit your Mazda 3 and your Mazda 6. Our cold air box is designed for easy install and easy filter maintenance.

Using the OEM rubber isolators and mounts allows the box to move and flex to account for the engine’s normal movement during operation. Pair this with the easy to use thumb screws for the lid and filter servicing is a breeze.

Get your 2014 Mazda 3 the cold air it needs with the CorkSport cold air box that goes perfectly with the CorkSport SRI.

Finally, we wanted the CorkSport Cold Air Box to look like it belongs in your engine bay. The color, finish, and manufacturing method were all chosen because they closely resemble OEM parts. Like most OEM plastic parts found in the engine bay, the CorkSport Cold Air Box is manufactured from ABS, which is durable and resistant to the high heat found in your engine bay.

Yes folks, this means you can have your cake and eat it too. Get it February 24th, 2016!

Cheers,

CorkSport

  1. Damn, right on time! I was ready to buy another intake but this is exactly what I was looking for. Is there a pre-order link, how much is it going to cost.

  2. With my recent experience with the MAF wires breaking, I’m wondering if that slot for the wiring harness will still give enough slack for the harness to move around freely. If I bought this box, I’d probably consider extending the wires.

  3. OK guys ,,,,and girls ,, FINALLY. I’d like to say right now to send me one ,,BUT ,, are you going to release any HP or TORQUE figures when you put it in your catalog ?? I love the whole idea and have been badgering you for a long time as to the release. Of course $$$$ are important both to add to the pkg of the SRI and to sell as a seperate upgrade for all who already have your short ram. I must say that my 2014 with the intake has been terrific and I have non of those hot air bogging problems at all.

  4. Does this fix the loss of power in the low end for many users in hotter locations?
    I live in Socal and some other users at the mazda6club forums have been experiencing quite a drastic loss in lower end power on hot days.

  5. Please make this a reasonable price! A lot of us with SRIs from other manufacturers would love to bring you business by trying out this part.

  6. I was literally just about to DIY one since during the day in the heat here in socal it really bogs down the car. Glad to see that you heard and made one! Going to purchase as soon as it’s available. 🙂

  7. Hello,
    how accurate are the dimensions of the box.
    Hole diameter and size (wide where the fuse box is)
    Have an air filter mushroom on my diesel and therefore the degree would be important.

  8. Shame. you’re the only people I’ve found with anything for CX-3s lol. Thanks Though!

  9. Will it fit 08 Mazda 3 s HB 2.3? Looks almost the same as my engine bay

  10. Does the intake include an air filter or can I use the K & N filter I have installed replacing the OE filter?
    Thanks
