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. The CorkSport CX7 Short Ram Intake includes our precision machined MAF housing made from one piece of billet aluminum with included air straightener, durable dry flow air filter and custom reinforced silicone connector. In initial testing, the CorkSport CX7 Short Ram Intake netted peak gains of +12HP and +17 lb torque.
The CorkSport Advantage:
Prevent air leaks and inaccurate readings that can cause check-engine lights: The MAF housing is precision machined from billet aluminum with included air straightener.
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 with multi-layer nylon braid to provide more strength and power and a smooth internal transition for less turbulence and optimal flow
Stainless steel T-bolt clamps: Available in stealth black or polished stainless and ensure an airtight seal which prevents unmetered airflow
Corksport Service and Support: Receive a two year warranty, full color installation instructions, all of the needed installation hardware, and knowledgeable telephone installation support
Installed this in my 2010 CX-7 touring after my wife got it for me for xmas. Install was easy and it sounds great. Like the other reviewer with a CX-7 the stock vent hose did not reach so I had to get some 5/8" hose and clamps to finish the install.

Awesome. But be warned, if your putting this on a CX7 THE STOCK VENT HOSE THAT GOES TO THE ELBOW DOES NOT FIT!!!!. i had to use 2 clamps and some 5/8 hose.

High quality intake! Order with the air box for super cool intake temps. This intake lets you hear the turbo and stock bypass valve! Just the sound alone makes it worth the money.

this is a great product for the money adds great power, and sounds great to boot........ however the first mod should be the motor mount insert, but this for sure should be the second.

This is the first mod that you should do on your Mazdaspeed3!! What a difference it makes and the sound of the turbo spool makes driving your speed a whole new beast. The installation instructions that are provided by Corksport are perfect and easy to follow so installing this mod is no problem. Thank you Corksport for making such a high quality mod! Don’t wait, the SRI and TIP are worth the money and it is the best value compared to any other company. Stop reading reviews and pick this up now!!

I would like to start this review by stating my mechanical experience:
With that being said...wow!
I ordered the part on Sunday afternoon and received it Thursday (in Florida). Everything was packed with care, including the instructions. When the weekend finally rolled around, I requested a helping hand from my father-in-law and his tools. Seeing as this was my first installation of an aftermarket part, I thought I needed all the help I could get. Even though his help was greatly appreciated, looking back on it now, I realized I could have taken care of this myself. The instructions were perfect. From start to finish, everything was laid out in such an intuitive manner in the instructions, it would be difficult NOT to install it correctly! It took a little over 1 and 1/2 hours (if I had any prior mechanical experience, I'm sure it would have only taken about 40 minutes or less, but since I kept on referring back to the instructions every few moments to ensure a proper install, it took me longer). It really is shocking to see the factory parts that Mazda used. And when comparing them to Corksport's parts, it is a wonder the car even ran! When installing the parts, you can see the meticulous details that Corksport put into their parts, from the welding and bends, to the quality raw materials to make this Mazda scream now! And man does it scream! After installing the parts and ensuring everything was secure, I cranked her up and let her sit at idle to make sure I didn't get any CELs. After that period was over, it as time for the test drive. I wanted the full experience, so I rolled the windows down to hear the SRI and TIP pull in the air...but it wasn't my ears that caught the first difference, it was the "butt dyno." When I gave her some gas, I was grinning from ear to year. The additional power and sound still gets me every time. The car has more pull and a beautiful "Whoooosh!" sound kicks in when you give it some gas. Along with this, if you drive "like a normal person" you improve your gas mileage by a few mpg...but with the power and sound, it is awfully hard not to push the accelerator a little harder than normal.
After it is all said and done, I couldn't be happier. From detailed instructions to noticeable power gains, the total experience was flawless. Corksport has a customer for life! Great product and great service!

This item arrived quickly and well protected. The install went smoothly and the fit was very good. My expectations were modest even in light of the hefty power gains claimed by CorkSport. My expectations have definetely been exceeded. The power increase is phenomenal. The sound of air rushing in is addictive. I typically leave the radio off now with the side window down just to enjoy the sound. while unscientific, my "seat of the pants" dynometer confirms CorkSports power claims. This is a terrific modification and worth every penny at twice the price.
