Boost Appearance & Handling with the 2019+ Mazda 3 Coilover Kit

Looking for the next mod to turn your 4th GEN Mazda 3 into the hot hatch Mazda should have made? We are proud to introduce the CorkSport Performance Coilover Kit for 2019+ Mazda 3 and Mazda 3 Turbo. Drastically improve the handling and looks of your GEN4 with stiffer spring rates, damping adjustability, front camber adjustability, and lowered ride height. We went back to the drawing board and created a completely new coilover kit design that shares no similarities with our older coilovers! Read on for full details.

Mazda 3 Coilover Kit

The CorkSport coilover kit uses a 5K front spring and 7K rear spring (~280lb/in. and ~392lb/in.) for optimum balance of ride and handling. We went through extensive testing to ensure the springs bring stiff enough rates for novice autocross and track handling, yet soft enough rates for the daily commute. These spring rates have a larger increase in the rear than in the front. This helps to reduce understeer and bring the handling closer to neutral. This also keeps the car having a natural frequency of the rear suspension slightly higher than the rear. This matches OEM specs and ensures great driver feedback and comfort. You can even go for the optional Swift Springs for some added special sauce!

Paired with the 5K and 7K springs are a set of 30-way adjustable dampers. The damping was carefully chosen to match our spring rates and to provide a wide adjustment range for a variety of vehicle uses and personal preferences. A car on max soft damping has a sportier ride than OEM but is still perfectly comfortable on the daily commute. A car on max stiff damping has a much more active feel that offers great driver feedback when attacking a backroad or when on track. We find most people end up somewhere in the middle, with 10 clicks from full soft being our recommended starting point.

GEN4 Mazda 3 2022 Coilovers

While the CS coilover kit is focused on handling improvement, it does add a noticeable appearance boost. At maximum low, the CS coilover kit is ~2.25” lower than OEM. There is ~2.75” of adjustability in the front and ~1.5” of adjustability in the rear. This puts the maximum high adjustment at ~0.5” higher than OEM in the front and ~0.75” lower than OEM in the rear. So if you prefer a more subtle drop for an OEM+ look we’ve got you covered! Lowering the ride height isn’t all about appearance though, it does make for a lower center of gravity for reduced body roll and increased driver confidence.

The CorkSport coilovers are an easy direct bolt-in for your Mazda 3, with no permanent modifications or special tools required. They can be installed in just a few hours using the full-color CS installation instructions and included hardware. You can be sure the installation with last as all components in the kit are made from corrosion-resistant materials and/or coated to keep the rust away. All aluminum comes anodized while all steel parts are powder coated for years of reliable performance!

The Beautiful New Carbon Fiber Trunk Lip Spoiler for the 3rd Gen Mazda 3

2014-2018 Mazda 3 Spoiler

We here at CorkSport are excited to offer 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Sedan owners another exterior mod to add to your build. The new addition to the lineup is the CorkSport Trunk Lip Spoiler which replaces the small and hardly noticeable factory lip. The CS Trunk Lip offers a larger profile that flows nicely with the back of your Mazda to give it a more aggressive appearance. Available in both Carbon Fiber and FRP you can select the best option that will work with your build. More details and pictures of the new CS Trunk Lip Spoiler for the Mazda 3 can be found below.

The CS Trunk Lip expands upon the OEM lip to provide a much more prominent and pronounced profile. Also, fitment of the CS Trunk Lip is right in line with the factory lip, so installation is straightforward without any surprises along the way. During the install, no modifications are necessary so you always have the option to return your car back to stock if needed down the road. The CorkSport Trunk Lip also includes the necessary double sided tape to secure the trunk lip so installation can be completed without any interruption.

The CS Trunk Lip is available in two separate materials. These include a carbon fiber version and a full FRP version. Both CS Trunk Lip Spoilers start out with a base layer made of fiberglass and in the case of the carbon fiber lip, it then gets overlaid with twill weave carbon fiber of course. The carbon fiber lip is then coated in a UV-resistant epoxy resin to give it a high gloss finish as well as protection from the elements.

The full FRP lip comes in a grey primer which will need to be prepped and sanded. It can then be painted or wrapped with vinyl to achieve whatever look you’re after for your 3.

It’s Finally Here! The Performance Turbo Inlet Pipe for the Mazda SkyActiv-G 2.5L Turbo

The best and most complete intake system for your Turbo Mazda is finally available!  Introducing the last piece of the puzzle, the CorkSport Performance Turbo Inlet Pipe.  Combine the turbo inlet pipe with the CorkSport Short Ram Intake and Heatshield to create the complete intake system for the SkyActiv-G 2.5T engine found in nearly every model Mazda currently produced.

Skyactiv Turbo 3 Filter Inlet Engine Placement

Why does an upgraded turbo inlet pipe matter?

Power comes from efficiently flowing air in and out of the engine. When there is a restriction in the flow path, this causes a power and efficiency loss.  Our goal was to design a new performance turbo inlet pipe that removes the restrictions of the OEM design, fits like OEM, and integrates perfectly with the already existing CorkSport Short Ram Intake and Heatshield.

The Turbo Inlet Pipe for the4th Gen Mazda 3

Here you can truly see the difference in size!  While the shape of the CorkSport Turbo Inlet Pipe is…unusual…it’s for good reason.  We invite you to check out the design blog for more in-depth details.  

In a nutshell, we investigated the typical aftermarket design path of a metal pipe, but a 2.5 inch metal pipe was not good enough.  We thought outside of the box to truly design the best turbo inlet pipe option for the community.  We moved up to a 3 inch inner diameter system to maintain a continuous 3 inch inner area matching the MAF housing.

It’s the final piece in the CorkSport 4th GEN Turbo Intake System making it the best and most complete system on the market!

Turbo Inlet Providing Power Gains

So does it make power?  Short answer. YES IT DOES!  While tuning for the 4th GEN Mazda platform is still primitive and restrictive, we are able to see faster spooling and higher flow before the ECU hits the load limits.  This tells us we are making more power with the addition of the turbo inlet pipe to the existing CorkSport short ram intake system.  It also tells us there is more potential in the system once tuning develops further.  We can promise, as tuning does develop, we too will further test and validate the benefits of the turbo inlet pipe system.

Power gains are great, but another key addition to the driving experience is unleashing the induction and turbocharger noise trapped by the factory air intake system. The CorkSport SRI and TIP frees up a surprising amount of turbo noise when driving around and provides more induction sound under hard acceleration. The extra level of turbocharger noise is enjoyable when you want, but doesn’t get in the way when you don’t.

The Turbo Inlet Pipe Made Better & Fits Like OEM

Let’s talk about how its made; the material and manufacturing method used is another advantage over the OEM counterpart. The CorkSport TIP is Roto-Molded out of a high temp nylon to offer good strength and flow while retaining an OEM like appearance. The CorkSport TIP also utilizes two silicone couplers which are reinforced so they don’t deform under vacuum high load. The silicone coupler that connects the SRI to the TIP gives a nice smooth transition between the two when compared to the OEM coupler, which has ribs that introduce unwanted turbulent air into the TIP.

The Best Intake For Turbo Mazda 3 Silicone

The outlet silicone that leads to the turbo features a barbed fitting to retain the valve cover breather and we also provide a silicone breather hose to connect the two together. This barbed fitting can also be used for an oil catch can if you want to add one in the future.

4th Gen Turbo Inlet Pipe Colors

The last component that is included with the CorkSport TIP is the mounting bracket. The mounting bracket is made out of 304 stainless steel and was designed to work with both the air-to-air intercooler system found on the Mazda 6, CX-9, and CX-5 and the air-to-water intercooler system found on the Mazda 3, CX-30, and CX-50. From the factory they have different mounting locations for the TIP so we decided to offer a single mounting bracket that will work with which ever model you have. 

Hardware for the Turbo Inlet Pipe Hardware

As with most CorkSport performance products, this Turbo Inlet Pipe kit includes all the necessary installation hardware and color step-by-step installation instructions to ensure you have a quick and straightforward install.

The addition of the CS Turbo Inlet Pipe on your Turbo Mazda is a fantastic mod to further build upon your current CorkSport SRI. And Heatshield.  At this time, no competitor intake systems have been test fit with the CorkSport Turbo Inlet Pipe.

Stand Out with the Wing Extension for Your 3rd Gen Mazda 3 Hatch

Already have the Mazdaspeed “MS” style spoiler for your 3rd gen Mazda 3 hatch, but looking for just a bit more unique look? CorkSport is proud to announce our Mazda 3 Gurney Flap Style Spoiler Wing Extension just for you.  Designed for the “MS” style aftermarket spoiler on the 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback.  This is an aftermarket spoiler, not the OEM spoiler.

3rd Gen Mazda 3 Hatch Gurney Flap

While the “gurney flap” style wing extension is not new to the automotive aftermarket community, we wanted to offer our interpretation of this fun, useful and stylish performance part.  We approached this design with the goal to add style, and some function, and durability. 

2018 Mazda 3 Hatch Spoiler Extension

With such a simple performance part how can we be unique and durable?  That comes down to the design and materials…more specifically the combination of those two.  The common option on the market today uses a plastic material for the “flap”.  This is cost effective, looks decent, and has decent durability.  However, over time the plastic may degrade due to use, weather and UV radiation.

The CorkSport “flap” is made from 5052 Aluminum sheet and then powder coated a satin black for a durable and long lasting finish and construction.  Mounting the “flap” are three CNC formed stainless steel brackets and four underside mounting screws…also stainless steel.  This gives you a total of seven mounting points meaning there is no need for messy and finicky double side tape.

Designed specifically for the Mazdaspeed “MS” style aftermarket spoiler for the 2014-2018 Mazda 3 hatchback.  Sadly this will not work for the OEM spoiler, but hey maybe that could happen in the future!

Mounting Brackets for Mazda 3 Gurney Flap

While we cannot make any official claims to added down force, we have found the car to feel more stable at speed and a little gurney flap never hurt anyone.  It sure looks good on the Tail of the Dragon mounted on Bradon’s 3rd GEN Hatch!

Measuring at 4” in flap depth, the CS design is a very noticeable as you walk up to the car with a pronounced flap and tumble polished stainless brackets.  All the underside hardware is black stainless so it blends into the satin black powder coat.

The Performance Rear Motor Mount For 4th Gen Mazda 3 is Ready For Action

If you’re looking for a performance part for your Gen 4 Mazda 3 & CX30 to elevate the driver experience then the CorkSport Rear Motor Mount. This CS RMM is designed to fit any 2019+ Mazda 3 & CX30 whether it is AWD or FWD, Turbo or NA, MT or AT. The key focal point for this RMM is to offer the driver additional feedback for what the car is doing when driving hard. The CS RMM helps eliminate the excessive engine movement, increase throttle response and provide a more solid shifter feel if you have a car with a stick.

Starting with the main body of the CorkSport RMM, it is manufactured from A356-T6 aluminum to provide a robust and light weight mount that effectively replaces the quite large and heavy OEM mount. The factory mount features a large rubber center section which contributes to the excessive engine movement and additional weight. For the CS RMM we decided to add smaller bushings towards the front and back of the mount which allowed us to save material and weight.  Below you can see the two RMM’s compared against one another.    

Mazda 3 Performance Race Poly Mount

Now onto the polyurethane bushings, which play a big role in the increased driver feedback and reduction in engine movement. We tested the selected 70A bushings extensively and found that they offer a good combination of providing both a noticeable improvement in the driving experience while not introducing to much extra noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) into the mix for daily driving.

NOTE: NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) is a standard term used in the automotive industry.  NVH is a byproduct of changing some OEM components to aftermarket components in the pursuit of focused performance. Example of components that can increase NVH: engine mounts, clutch/flywheel, intake, exhaust, suspension, tires/wheels…and many more. 

During the first stage of testing we started out with only two poly bushings in the front of the RMM, but after further testing we found that adding an additional two bushing to the rear of the RMM provided much lower NVH while still reducing engine movement considerably.

The last piece that is fundamental in the CS RMM is the bushing sleeves. The sleeves provide the ability to install hardware through the polyurethane bushing without having the bushing itself compress and possibly crack when applying torque to the bolt and instead transfer the force into the sleeve. The bushing sleeves are precision machined out of steel for strength and then zinc coated so they will not corrode over time and wear out the polyurethane bushing prematurely.

Ok, so now how does the CS RMM improve the driver experience? Well, the factory RMM allows the motor to rotate a good amount which helps provide a smooth driving experience for around town, but this increase in engine movement decreases the throttle response and shifter feel.

2019 Mazda 3 RMM Bushing.JPG

This is because the motor is allowed to rotate a certain amount before the wheels do, so by decreasing the amount the motor has to rotate, allows the wheels to start rotating sooner, thus increasing the responsiveness of the car. This reduction of movement also provides a better shifter feel if you have a manual because there is less movement between the connection of the shifter and transmission.

4th gen mazda 3 Turbo Poly Rear Motor Mount

What to expect from the Rear Motor Mount:

From our testing in multiple R&D cars and beta tester cars and the thousands of miles driven…it’s awesome!  From about 2000rpm up to redline you are going to feel a smooth engine that loves to give you feedback on your throttle, shifting and engine braking.  Below 2000rpm to idle you may notice some vibration, especially when the A/C pump is in operation.
