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 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
  • 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.

Mazda CX-5 Short Ram Intake FAQ and Install Instructions

 

First ever purchase from CorkSport and I couldn't be happier. During the installation, I was able to refer to the highly detailed instructions that they provided and never have I ever been more confident while working with a modification on my car. 10/10 highly recommend to anyone
Super easy to install, and it looks great. Can definitely hear a difference and getting rid of the monstrous amount of OEM airbox plastic was a nice plus.

10/10 would buy again.
I am really happy with my short ram intake! After selling my fully bolted Speed6 and buying my 2014 Mazda3, I missed the sound of my old car. Sure, I wasn't going to be able to get anywhere near the same power out of my Mazda3, but it's nice to roll down the window on a twisty road and hear the intake snarl.

I got Corksport's air box to go along with the intake to feed fresh outside air to my engine and protect the filter from salt and grime, and I can still hear the engine well. One thing to note is you may hear a "gurgling" sound the odd time after installing the intake, but this is normal and not a sign of a problem.

I highly recommend getting a spare filter to quicken filter swaps, and i plan on getting a K&N Drycharger to prevent rain or road spray from getting to the filter.
I wasn't expecting such a noticeable difference in sound, throttle response is great too.
Extremely easy to install. I love the sound from under the hood now it really compliments the CS axel back exhaust on the hatchback. I haven't had any problems with hot engine air causing any problems and I live in Tennessee and it's summer.
Works great, still fits with leaving bottom of the OEM intake in for a cold air source and doubles as a water shield to keep it dry. Easy Install, Really lets you hear the headers over OEM!
Just installed the short ram intake big difference to power and throttle response.
Fantastic, easy install, noticeable power increase, and great sound. Oh and the throttle response is way better. I will definitely be getting more parts from Corksport for my Mazda.

I typically never leave reviews because usually its not worth the effort. It is well worth the effort this time.
I had a CS SRI but I ended up swapping it out with another manufacturer before I tuned my Mazda 3. There are some flaws with the design that can cause trouble with the MAF.

Also I think a heat shield or box should be available for the SRI.
Not quite a aggressive-sounding as another Short Ram Intake I tried, but this CorkSport Short Ram Intake does have the added benefit of no check engine light. I have had it on for a thousand miles so far and everything is still working great!

How often (miles) does it need to be cleaned?

I've had this for quite a while now and the growling sound during the winter months really had me smiling everyday but now that the sun is out I started to smell burning rubber around the engine. Same goes when I drive at night. I've isolated the smell and it seems to be coming from the rubber part of the SRI. Anyone has this problem?

I am concerned about the heat buildup under the hood as I live in Phoenix and summer temps can hit 110+ easily! Engine breathing hotter air actually lowers horepower and efficiency.. Would you still recommend this product.
