One of the easiest and most beneficial performance enhancements you can do for your vehicle, the CorkSport Power Series Short Ram Intake replaces your factory airbox with an open intake system allowing more air into the intake chamber. Engineered with exacting tolerances, the CorkSport Mazda 3 Short Ram Intake includes our precision machined MAF housing made from billet aluminum, a durable dry flow air filter and custom reinforced silicone connector. The CorkSport 2010+ Mazda 3 Short Ram Intake has been designed for the 2.0L standard and now SkyActiv engines. In initial testing with the 2.0 Liter SkyActiv engine, the CorkSport Mazda 3 Short Ram Intake netted peak gains of +5 HP and +6 lb torque at the wheels.
The CorkSport Advantage:
Available for 2.0 Liter Standard and SkyActiv* Gasoline Engines: In addition to the standard 2.0L engine, CorkSport has developed a new power series intake that will perform with the all new SkyActiv engines
Improve Gas Mileage and Power: In initial testing on the SkyActiv engine, the CorkSport SRI showed peak gains of +5 HP and +6 lb torque at the wheels.
Avoid Unwanted Check-Engine Lights: The MAF housing is precision machined from billet aluminum to prevent air leaks and inaccurate readings.
Durable Dry Flow Air Filter: Reusable and water resistant, this unique non-woven filter media does not require oil to filter and trap dirt and actually sheds dirt under engine vibration unlike cotton-gauze which holds contaminates until you clean the filter
Custom Reinforced Silicone Connector: Constructed from multi-layer nylon braid to provide more strength and power and a smooth internal transition for less turbulence and optimal flow
CorkSport Service and Support: Receive a 2 year warranty, full color installation instructions, all of the needed installation hardware, and knowledgeable telephone installation support
*Can be used with the gasoline engine only. Does not work on diesel engines. With the CorkSport Intake installed on the SkyActiv engine, at higher RPM's you may hear a slight ticking from the opening and closing of the injectors. This is completely normal and is what helps increase torque and fuel economy.
Please make sure of the model of 2.0 engine you have in your Mazda 3. The 2.0 Standard and 2.0 Skyactiv intakes are not interchangable.
Note: This intake is not CARB approved for the state of California.

It took about a thousand Kms, before the engine finally tuned itself, but man what a difference. Under two thousand rpms it lugs like crazy and makes a very faint knocking noise. Hit the accelerator and it just takes off like a crazed rabbit.

A good product that I had installed 5+ years. Be aware though, don't bother buying this intake unless you're buying the airbox as well. The heat soak is dramatic and makes this intake much worse than factory off the line. With the airbox installed it produces a great throaty sound that is not at all ricey, while puling better at higher RPMs vs. stock.

Better throttle response and a little more hp when passing on the highway. Its not going to make your mazda3 skyactiv a track car but it will make your car unique and sounds great. Happy with my purchase and better than expected.

Sounds Great. Feels a bit more aggressive. Revs up faster.

Super easy to instal and sounds amazing at open throttle. I plan on doing the exhaust over the summer so can't wait to hear how it sounds when that's done

Awesome intake, very easy to install, and has an awesome sound to it!

Sounds beautiful, gives it a more aggressive tone to it, especially in the higher rpm. I love it. Cant wait to combo this with the corksport exhaust.

Ordered and installed my intake about two years ago and I've been loving it ever since. The engine noise changes drastically for the better, doesn't sound ricey at all! Highly recommend this intake to someone looking to make a first purchase for their Mazda 3.

Product was extremely easy to install. Also looks great (especially with a painted battery cover). Recommended+
