CorkSport Mazda3 Power Series Short Ram Intake.

If you want a simple modification that increases your power, and can improve gas mileage; the CorkSport Mazda3 SRI is for you. With quick installation, this plug and play piece is a great way to start getting more power out of your Mazda 3. 

One of the easiest and most beneficial performance enhancements you can do for your vehicle, the CorkSport Mazda3 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 SRI 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 Mazda 3 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 Mazda3 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 inaccurate 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
  • Replacement Air Filter is: Available Here
  • 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

This air intake is worth every penny. 1 - Throttle response completely changes for the better. A lot more control. 2 - Improved every aspect of acceleration, especially at higher speeds. Really helped with highway merging/passing. 3 - Sounds much more interesting, but isn't loud.

Overall, this completely changed my 3 hatchback. It's not a super powerful engine but this intake really helped to give it a bit more oomph and performance.
Bought it. Installed it 40 minutes. Nobody else can notice the difference but the driver sure can. Great mod and very beneficial for your car. If you have any issues with the MAF it is because you obviously didn't install correctly. I don't and haven't had any issues and I'm an amateur!
I have a 2015 Mazda 3 6 speed manual and love my car! However for how zippy the car can be it was very quiet. I wanted the car to sound how it feels driving it and the Short Ram Intake is exactly what I was missing!!!
especially in 2nd gear and up the car sounds a lot more throaty and is nothing but pure fun! I am going to get the Axle Back in a few months to seal the sound deal.
Not a bad product. Looks great. Easy to install with the included instructions.

After taking out the stock resonator it adds a little nice throaty sound to the engine. Power gains not super noticeable. Mazda is about feel however, and it does feel a little more sporty.

It's kinda like when you were a kid and you could play with basic fire works unsupervised. It's fun and gives you a cheap smile but it's nothing dangerous.

Gas mileage (w/ manual) from daily driving has gone from 34mpg to 34.5mpg over one month. (According to the dash)
Quite literally the most fun I've had in YEARS doing a modification! I installed my short ram intake kit on a 2014 Mazda 3i Sport, automatic. Wanted a better intake sound to feed my ailing hotrod ego. BINGO! A forty-five minute installation just being lazy and taking my time. Easy to install, beautiful workmanship on the parts, and the cheap standard shipping was just three days! I simply could not be happier or more satisfied. LOVE THE SOUND!
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.

I have a 2019 gen 4 mazda 3 2.0L engine. I know you guys came out with a new 2.5L SRI for the gen 4 but im afraid the MAF will be off. Was wondering if this intake would be compatible instead?

Hello guys, I just wanted to know if you need to "oil" the intake with any specific product when proceeding to the maintenance, or simply clean it with water and an intake cleaner. Thanks ;)

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?
