    What’s up guys how is the testing going? I am looking into making this purchase once you have the 2.5 kit available. Keep us posted I need more HP fast!

    Come on guys, a year and a half with no update. Say something? Don’t you have any information at all like “its not working,” or “we changed our mind,” or “we have tested something.” I wanted a cork sport kit, ready to go. OV said they could help make it real, but they were not providing a kit.. I’ve been waiting for you. Now OV has moved on and it looks like you have too. There are products coming out for cars that did not even exist before this announcement with absolutely zero update from you. It is not even listed under your future products. Did you give up, or are you still doing it?

    We have hard parts made, just working out tuning etc. Its only been a year and a half. This is a very slow process! We talk about it now and again on Facebook, so follow on there for regular updates!

    Seen lots of hints on Facebook about the turbo kit for the Mazda 3! (Specifically a huge 80mm exhaust being released for it, and some hinting comments).
    Messaged you guys about an 80mm exhaust for the Mazda 6, and got a reply about “probably not, it’d be too much for an NA car.”
    I really hope that doesn’t mean the kit is going to be Mazda 3 only :(.
    Do you know by any chance? Thanks in advance
    – Matt.

    Still waiting, hoping, and saving. I can’t wait! However, I am also going too probably mail you a bag of dog poop, in retaliation for me wasting my money on a CAI, so be ready.

    Have you partnered with a company to provide the tune package that this will require? Only ECUTek and OV Tune have been able to successfully tune a boosted Skyactiv engine…

    ECUTek said they will not work on the Mazda 3 engine…

    OV Tune is no longer working on Mazdas at all…

    Are you guys SOL now?

    OK…you’ve made some parts… yet you are not posting any data or details about them or pics of them installed…

    That means you don’t have a working tune yet…CRUD…

    If OV Tune and ECU Tek can do, it is possible to tune a boosted Skyactiv engine. Make it happen!

    OV Tune announced today that they will offer tune packages for the Mazda again.

    I would recommend you guys give Matt and Rafael a call to get your tuning figured out ASAP… Enough BS… Let’s see some results.

    Can’t wait any longer on you guys. Starting the tuning process with Orange Virus tuning based on my current setup.

    It also looks like you guys may not be the first out of the gate with a turbo kit for the Gen 3’s… Rumor has it another company has already fabbed up a kit, installed it and have a working tune for a boosted Gen 3. Not sure how much more testing they will do before production, but we shall see…

    Quick and “Unofficial” update on the turbo kit. We ran out of clutch and what is on the market which is supposed to fit the car does not. We are working on sorting it out so we can get back to the dyno and tuning.

    If/When this kit drops, will it also work with the 2.0l? I hope, hope, hope it does. Dang would it be fun to get this kit and set it up and give the new 2019 Mazda 3 owners a little bit of buyer’s remorse;)

    Hi Gents,

    i have a 2.5L NA 2015 Mazda 3 hatch. I am looking forward to the turbo kit plus tune package. I hope you come up with it soon with figures and pricing. I know that lately mazda 6 came out with a turbo which can be found in the cx-5 as well so i hope you don’t lose interest in the mazda 3 because i don’t think mazda will put a turbo on the 3

    Update for those whom haven’t read this thoroughly. “Ran out of clutch” need a clutch that will work and will handle the added boost reliably, also will have a 2.0 in the works. But seems like we may be looking st winter of 2020

    Hi Corksport,

    Will these turbo kits be available for both Manual & Automatic Transmissions? I have a 2014 Mazda3 hatch w/Automatic trans. It’s so smooth! No jerkiness & not a CVT. Hope this kit is worth the wait!

    I have clutch leads, two of them from stage 1-5. Don’t let this slow you down. I have been trying to be patient but am coming so close to just building something myself. Please don’t make me do that 😂. Seriously though, give me a hit, give me something

    oh dang, everything is sold out though lol. I bet CS stuff may be a bit more .. hmm engineered? anyway, I would be ultra tempted if these kits were in stock; I really wanted a boosted 3 for the Great European Rally in August. I don’t think CS is going to be able to get me hooked up by then.

      Hi Alex,

      Note the race header will only work with a 2.5L with a manual transmission. Once we have one of these set-ups available for testing, we will verify fitment.

    Very interested in a turbo kit for a 2016 Mazda3 2.0. Since this has been in the works for a while now, once it is released for the 2.5, how long until a version is available for the 2.0? I’ve been thinking of selling my 3 to get something a little more fun, but a turbo kit would change my mind.
