Back in March 2015, I bought my Mazda3 i Touring brand-new from the dealership with intentions of keeping it stock. Clearly, that didn’t last long. The challenge was how to make an already fun car more fun. That’s when I turned to CorkSport.
Having purchased my third Mazda, and having numerous friends who shop through the company, it was a no-brainer to start here first. The first week having the car, I purchased the license plate relocation kit because, let’s face it, the factory mount looks atrocious smack-dab in the middle of the grille.
At CorkSport we value innovation. We’ve got dozens of products that are unique on the market. Our Blow-off valve is being patented. How do you innovate a shift knob? That’s a tough one but we found a way!
Are you ready for one of the first shiftknobs that you can adjust? At its lightest, weighing in at 175 grams, and adjustable up to 320 grams, you will be able to tailor your shift weight to your driving style.
To really feel your shifts, adjust the weight to the lighter side, as low as 175 grams and feel the intricate shift points as you flow through the gears. For those that like heavy knobs, you can max it out to 320 grams, giving you smoother shifts that easily falling into gear as you shift up and down through the gears.
For example the first generation Mazdaspeed 3 (2007-2009) OEM shiftknob weighs in at 260 grams and the 2nd generation Mazdaspeed 3 (2010-2013) weighs in at 280 grams. You can find that sweet spot above or below that OEM weight to customize your driving style.
After you find that ideal and magical weight, installation will take about a minute as you screw on the knob. There are no set screws or adapters, it will screw straight on the OEM shaft as they were designed specifically for your Mazda vehicle. CAD designed and manufactured out of a durable deep blue or sleek black aluminium for a long life and incredible feel.
After months of testing and making sure it couldn’t be broken, we are finally ready to release the CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Differential Mount!
With all the testing we have done on this part, we know it is the strongest available on the market, but don’t take our word for it. To quote Dennis Gardener, who tested this part on his Mazdaspeed 6 equipped with a GT35 turbo: “I threw everything I had at this mount and my engine blew up long before I could even make a dent in it.”
Machined from lightweight billet aluminum and anodized black, the Rear Differential Mount from CorkSport is durable and built to last. Priced below the cost of replacing the stock mount, the CorkSport Rear Differential Mount is ideal for all Mazdaspeed 6 owners, especially when you start turning up the boost!
The CorkSport Shift Knob provides smooth throwing shifts, and clean style to complement your Mazda.
Weighing in at 320 grams, the CorkSport Shift Knob provides easy weighted throws that improve response and feel. Shift smoother and let gravity help with extra weight in the palm of your hand. With soft leather, and baseball style embroidery the CorkSport shift knob will complement your interior and feel good in your hand. Works great with your Mazda or Mazdaspeed.
