What’s in the Pipeline for the 2014+ Mazda3?

Here at CorkSport, we are always working toward the next new product. We create our catalog just like you build your cars. Since there’s so much in development, we thought we would give you all a glimpse into what’s coming for the 2014+ GEN3 Mazda 3.

2.5L SkyActiv-G Turbo Kit

Let’s start with the big one since you’ve all been asking for updates: the 2.5 Liter Skyactive Turbo Kit. We are still making steady progress and are more excited than ever for this Mazda3 Turbo. Our functional turbo kit prototypes are slowly starting to arrive, meaning we are inching closer and closer to having our Mazda3 test car on the dyno (with added turbo noises). Stay tuned folks; this is going to be a fun one!

2014-2016 Mazda 3/6/CX-5 Motor Mounts


We already showed you the new and improved CorkSport Rear Motor Mount, but there’s more to come with the CorkSport Transmission Motor Mount. Check out the CAD model above to see what we’re talking about. Keep tabs on the CS blog for more info on the design and function of this motor mount soon.

2014-2016 Mazda 3 Skid Tray

The CorkSport skid trays have been consistently requested for the Mazdaspeed models; so much, that we brought them back for both the Mazdaspeed3 and the Mazdaspeed6. Now we are providing the same benefits to Mazda3 owners. We just received and test fit our first prototype skidplate, and it’s looking very promising moving forward.

2014+ Mazda 3 Suspension Kit

Need some extra handling and style for your Mazda3 but don’t want the hassle of lowering springs? We have created a kit that includes the CorkSport lowering springs, adjustable shocks/struts, and camber plates all assembled with OE accessories and ready to install. No spring compressors needed, for ease of installation. Coming soon…

2014+ Mazda 3 Front Sway Bar

Reducing overall roll or “sway” can drastically change your Mazda’s handling characteristics. We should be receiving our first prototype to test fit on our Mazda3 any day now are excited to see how it complements the CorkSport rear sway bar. Oh, and the new front sway bar is 3-way adjustable just like our ND Miata sway bars!

2014-2016 Mazda 3 Steering Wheel

Last, but not least, our leather steering wheel will be making a comeback in the coming months. Featuring a similar profile to the CorkSport Mazdaspeed3 steering wheels, it is designed to increase confidence in both aggressive and daily driving while staying comfortable and stylish.

As you can see, we are staying busy with the newest generations of Mazda here at CorkSport, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing we are focused on.

We still have plenty of upcoming products for you Mazdaspeed guys and gals, and for some platforms you may not be expecting. Keep tabs on the CS blog, Instagram and Facebook page to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Until next time,

-Daniel @ CorkSport

It’s finally here: The Gen 2 Mazdaspeed 3 Steering Wheel

Steering wheel upgrade for the 2010-2013 Mazdaspeed 3 and Mazda 3.

Tired of looking at all of the Genjuan guys showing off their upgraded steering wheels? Not anymore! We just finished the development and release of the 2010-2013 Performance Steering Wheel. For those of you with a 2010-2013 Mazda 3 or Mazda 5, yes the wheel will work great in your models as well.

This is a complete steering wheel with no stitching required, unlike some of the other kits on the market. The CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel is designed to be a direct OEM replacement. It works flawlessly with the OEM steering column, covers, button panels, and airbag for a stress-free 30-minute installation.

The image below shows exactly what you will receive in the package.

This is a fully assembled steering wheel with all the OEM components, including your original buttons.

Think about this: What part of your Mazda do you have contact with every single time you’re in the car? Your steering wheel! Why not give your hands some much-needed love with hand wrapped and stitched leather. The wheel has a slight texture and a plush feel to it. We even used perforated leather in the high use areas so your hands won’t get clammy on spirited drives.

The wheel diameter is the same as OEM but the thickness of the wheel has been increased, which is much more comfortable for long drives or just a quick jaunt to the store. The flat bottom gives it a more aggressive feel and actually makes it easier to get in and out of the car, especially for those of you with longer legs.

All that said, probably the most exciting feature of the CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel is the aggressive thumb grooves. These help you lock your hands in place, giving you more confidence on twisty roads and helps you fight the torque steer from your boost motor.
