One of the easiest and most beneficial performance enhancements you can do for your vehicle, the CorkSport Cx-5 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 SkyActiv Short Ram Intake includes our precision machined MAF housing made from billet aluminum, a durable dry flow air filter and custom reinforced silicone connector. In initial testing with the 2.0 Liter SkyActiv engine, the CorkSport Short Ram Intake netted peak gains of +5 HP and +6 lb torque at the wheels
The CorkSport Advantage:
Designed Specifically for SkyActiv Gasoline Engines*: CorkSport has developed a new power series intake that will perform with the all new SkyActiv engines in the CX5
Avoid Unwanted Check-Engine Lights: The MAF housing is precision machined from billet aluminum to prevent air leaks and innaccurate readings.
Improve Power: Initial testing showed peak gains of +5 HP and +6 lb torque at the wheels with the 2.0L and 10hp
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
*Made for gasoline engines only. Will 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.
**How to find your build date of your 2013-2017 Mazda Cx-5. Open the drivers door and locate the vehicle identification sticker. It will look like the picture below. There will be a location which says date shown with the red arrow. That is what you need to find your build date. As you can see the on the example below the Mazda was built in November 2012.
Awesome upgrade. Very easy to install. Sounds incredible, very throaty. Noticed the increase in torque and even on the downshift, as I have a manual transmission. Worth every penny.

Very easy to install, worked as advertised (rare these days). Definitely noticed a slight increase in the throttle response and the sound makes me grin like an idiot (which could explain the weird looks). Just ordered the cold air box to go with the SRI and exhaust is next on lists.

Do it work with the 2.5L engine?
Guillermo01/28/2014, 10:09 PM
does this work for a 2013 mazda 3 sky active hatchback? or only 2014
CorkSport Reply:This listing is for the 2014+ models. Check out 2010-2013 section for your correct intake that we offer.

Just installed today, took about 15 minutes to install. Throttle response much better, and pulls harder. Excellent Product !!!!!!

I just drove 70 miles up to Washington today to pick up the CorkSport Intake for my CX-5. At first, I was hesitant to really get it. But I went ahead and got it after considering... "I just drove up here, why go home empty handed..." Drove home and started the process of installing. I finished about 15 minutes later and it was a success! No error codes no nothing. Tell you what, I OPENED up my throttle from 0-70mph, and I was EXTREMELY impressed. You def. HEAR the difference and FEEL the difference! Thank you CorkSport!!!

Still waiting to see improve gas mileage? from what i see now it is a little less MPG.
Definitely feel more power and even more using trip-tonic shifter fun to drive.

Super quick install, love the ability of customize all of the components for the intake. Well manufactured and quality item, what I've come to expect. The car pulls much harder than before and looks great!

Just purchased this item, the car's check engine light came on. So dont know would have to get that check now

Anyone have any real world feed back on what affect this has on MPG?
Allan Waller09/24/2012, 03:24 PM
i was just wondering if you guys noticed any changes to your MPG after this SRi mod.
Ernie03/27/2012, 03:15 PM
Great product! It sounds great and you can feel the horse power gain, but for some reason I did not get my points when i bought the product :(
Ivan Ivanov03/20/2012, 08:52 PM
First engine mod I've ever done, went well easy to install. Very good product. Throttle response much better it sounds sweet and there's a little more pull in the higher rpms. Can't wait to order the exhaust
Ryan03/18/2012, 07:17 AM
the install was easier than I thought. It looks amazing, my car feels great, and its hard not to step on the gas so you can hear it :)
Helbert Ruiz06/04/2011, 10:18 PM
Install was easy and the results were great. First mod I've done and I enjoy the subtle roar my car makes now, as well as the power gain. Wonderful product!
Jamal05/25/2011, 04:42 PM
Great product! One of the best SRI's I've ever used. Noticeable gains with this as my only performance mod to date and the sound is amazing! I went with everything black and the MAF color as red and it looks really good! Great job CorkSport!
Erik Jacobson05/21/2011, 12:29 PM
Fantastic product! Super easy install, looks, performs and sounds great. If I had to be picky I would have liked the silicone to be the same shade of red as the other two components, but its such a minor detail. Definitely a quality product.

It was easy to install and you can feel the difference. I love it and its a great addition!
