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 Mazdaspeed 3 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 Mazdaspeed 3 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
  • Upgrade to a CARB legal Stage Two CorkSport Power Series Intake with a Turbo Inlet Pipe For the best value on the market
  • Corksport Service and Support: Receive a two year warranty, full color installation instructions, all of the needed installation hardware, and knowledgeable telephone installation support



  • Install time                  2/5 Difficulty               2 year warranty       No CEL


Just installed the stage 1 sri today. Went smoothly and WOW! Started the car for the first time and could really hear all the air being sucked in by the intake. Took it for a quick spin and now you can audibly hear the turbo spool and stock bpv. Highly recommend this intake to anyone.
This was my first modification to my 2012 Speed3. I had so little mechanical experience I had to buy the hand tools to put this on, and apart from some tight space taking off the stock intake, installation was pretty straightforward.



Personally, I think this is worth the price for the sound alone. Hearing the car hiss and breathe when the turbo spools up is awesome. It's loud enough to hear with windows up on the freeway above 0 psi boost, but not so loud that it'll piss off your neighbors. I've seen no change in mileage in the 2 months I've had it installed.



My butt dyno can't feel the claimed 12 hp / 17 lb-ft torque gain. I can feel less pull between 2500-3000 rpm while boost builds more slowly, which is a little disappointing. However, I compared telemetry data from track days at Willow Springs from stock to after I installed the SRI, and the acceleration is slightly better, getting me to 120 mph vs 117 mph on the back straight. Not huge differences, but that could align with 12hp. I could share the graph, but this won't let me post pictures.



Stop procrastinating by reading reviews, just suck it up and buy it. The only thing you might regret is not shelling out for stage II.
This was my first upgrade to a 2010 Mazdaspeed3. I purchased the intake in 2014. After almost 3 years, this intake still functions perfectly and continues to help make the car a joy to drive. No CELs, no problems whatsoever. The part itself still looks as good as it did when I removed it from the box.



Install took about 30-45 minutes and the instructions were clear and concise. All of the parts fit perfectly. The most noticeable difference is the sound - spirited driving reveals a very audible hissing noise as air enters the intake. The high-pitched whine of the turbo is also more noticeable than before. Highly recommended.
Love this product. the "whoosh" noise is addicting. they didn't have the color I wanted but they included some hp adding stickers and a nice letter. butt dyno noticed a slight power diff.
Recently installed this piece on my GenJuan, loving it so far! Improved the sound over the Mazdaspeed/AEM CAI that had been pre-installed when I purchased the car.



Only thing to note is that if you, like me, do not have the factory airbox elbow, you will need to find an adapter for the breather hose, as the CS SRI relies on you being able to remove and transfer this small piece from the factory setup. I worked around it by altogether replacing the factory plastic breather tube with some flexible heater hose and a couple of generic fittings (3/4" to 5/8") from the parts store.
Bought the stage 1 intake. So far it's been great, car no longer falls flat at 5.8k and let's you easily hear the bpv. Awesome product will definitely be buying more from corksport. My only regret is I didn't go for the stage 2.
Easy to install and good quality, it's been 8 months and zero problems.
Install was easy. Noticed a better "growl" to the engine, and acceleration was more responsive.
How will this not set a cel i had smething like this on but nothing for air flow were the maf was want the bpv sound with no tune thats all for now
Did this SRI with the V3 Accessport and was very impressed with the power increase! Sounds great too!
whats the diff. in the stages?



CorkSport Reply:TIP and CAI extensions
does this intake require a tune?



CorkSport Reply:No
Besides the power difference, is there a sound difference between the stage 1 and stage 2 intake? Which one is louder?



CorkSport Reply:Stage II is a little louder.
I just got a 2010 speed3. It happens to have a CP-E inlet pipe and CAI. I'd rather have a short ram intake. Question is: will your SRI work with the CP-E inlet pipe?



CorkSport Reply:If the CPE inlet is supported it will.
Trying to decide between this and the stage 2. How much more power will the stage 2 create?



CorkSport Reply: 7-8 hp and the Stage II intake is CARB approved.
Easy Install. Great instructions. Looks great and sounds even better!
loving the sri! definitely can hear the turbo spool and the stock bov. i should have gotten the blue MAF housing. it was an easy install. instructions are right on. the only thing i was missing the hex to tighten my sensor but i have a set of hexes and found the right one. be careful when tightening the clamp that goes over the stock TIP as i may have cracked mine but so far its good.
I juste instal it on my car andmy exust tip is black . This is normal??



CorkSport Reply:The Mazdaspeed 3s all carbon up the exhaust tips stock or modified.
Ordered my short shift plate and Stage 1 SRI on May 28, and received my order on the 31st of May. Very fast shipping considering the order went vis US Postal Service from Washington State to Easter PA. Installed both the shift plate and the SRI in about an hour. Very easy install and very high quality products.



The short shift plate made shifting much more precise and quick. Awesome product. The SRI looks awesome and since the air box needed to be out of the way, I would recommend doing both of these mods at the same time. The sound of the turbo spooling and the BPV working is just awesome. I have not had the chance to really do any butt dynoing yet, but from what I can tell there is an increase in the force at which the car pulls.



Spending a couple of hundred bucks for this much fun and improvement in the car is a no brainer.
Do you need a tuner first



>>CorkSport Reply: No tuner is required.
Wow just installed this SRI today and what a big difference in power and sound! Really can hear the boost now thanks guys!
I have not purchased it yet because i have heard that any bolt on mod throws the check engine light and will void my warranty. only on the 2013 speed3 have i heard this is an issue. is this true or no??



>>CorkSport Reply:The SRI will not give you a check engine light and most well designed products will be fine of your 2013 Mazdaspeed 3. If you are in California look at our Stage II intake, it has a CARB approval.
Arrived a lot quicker than expected and talk about awesome finish/fit! Only question I would have is one that deals with the instructions vs what the car really had - It says to in the end reconnect a breather valve (the little 90deg. pipe between the MAF housing and TIP) but my car (100% stock til now) had a cap on that breather valve with nothing to connect it to from the start. Was that a good or bad thing? Or is that something on the 2010+ ones? I have a 2008.



>>>CorkSport Reply>>> Sounds like your Mazdaspeed 3 has the TSB repair with the new breather routing and replacement valve cover. You are good to go with capping it off.
CORKSPORT!!!!!!!you make fantastic products. I am three days in on a sri intake . I have not had a dry road to test it on yet ,but the the sound and the tire spin is notin but fun fun fun !!!!! will give another review after dry roads and exaust are installed . I live and work on US 129 "the TAIL OF THE DRAGON" if any one wants to start a corksport nation here in east tn contact me at mitch.stott@gmail.com

Great product. Fits perfectly and you can hear turbo spool and hear the bov...
Could not have wished for better quality sounds great hearing the air rushing in through the intake I was actually shocked at how poorand cheap the oem parts were in apperance and manufacture this goes to prove how good the Corksport boys are at producing such fantastic products which work how they were intended thanks
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.
real quality parts and great shipping customer service cant be beat and if mapped with the cobb tuner this intake is the best
My first mod on my 2012 ms3. Excellent quality. Best bang for the buck. Easy install. Love the sounds. Good job Corksport... :)

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:

NONE

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.
good install and excellent quality. the sound is pretty cool
Took me a little longer to install but was well worth it, Chris at corksport was super helpful and I'm so happy with how the car sounds and performs now, hands down amazing part!
Installed it last weekend! My butt dyno definitely can tell the difference. The sound is brilliant. There is quite a bit less lag with turbo spooling. 2nd and 3rd gear pull really nicely.



I've been driving with the window open to hear its song.



It took me quite a bit longer to install than the instructions laid out, but it's done and I am extremely happy!!!
Actually feel a few more horses and it sounds amazing

You can't ask for a better value! After I installed this I noticed an amazing HP gain and It sounds so freaking cool now. You can really hear the turbo spooling. If you haven't bought one, do it NOW!
No check engine light, easy to follow instructions, great gains, free sticker in the box! I am thrilled with my sir/tip and will gladly buy more fromt his great company.
This was my first mod and I LOVE IT! I think that every one should do this mod first. Worth the money hands down.
Great product, impressive results. The sounds is great and coupled with other intake/exhaust mods and a tuning solution your MS3 will really put you in your seat!
For all of you who have been kicking around the idea of an intake (like I did for 9 months) just do yourself a favor and buy the Corksport intake/TIP combo. I cannot tell you how much of a blast the car is to drive now. There is a noticable increase in acceleration over 3000 rpm. The sound is awesome and LOUD - you can even hear the stock BPV now! I suggest getting the cold air box also to fill the hole in your engine bay and to protect the filter from any stray water/dirt.

The guys at CS were awesome and magicked up an airbox for me even though I was origonally told it might be a three week wait. The parts are manufactured and packaged well and the install isn't to bad - just make sure you have a longnose set of angled pliers handy - the longer the better!

Cannot speak highly enough of Corksport and their products/customer service.
Wow, simply amazing... very well constructed... the gains they claim you can feel, turbo spools much quicker, car feels like it just woke up... one of the best performance mods money can buy, my Mazda dealer even likes it... they have no issues about it at all. btw the sound you get is well worth the admission ticket...Thanks Corksport for producing such an amazing product
I have bought this, installed it, and love it aswell. However, my mazda dealership says i have to take it off or it will void my warranty. Any advice/suggestions?
Amazing....the sound is great...the power is there...fun fun fun
Hardest part is removing the old parts. Installed in about 30 minutes. Noticable HP increase. Well worth the money.
Installation of the Corksport sri was a bit time consuming but straight forward and easy. For the money it is a very good product. Power gain is noticeable and the sound of hearing the turbo spool never gets old. If you get the sri also get the Forge BPV at the same time. They sound and look amazing together!!
I have had this intake on my car for over a week now and I LOVE IT!!!!! This was a fairly easy project to install and the quality and fitment are superb. I love the way it sounds and the power it has generated is wonderful. Thank you Derrick for all your help and a great product. This intake is def what my car was missing.
As the previous reviews have listed, the worse part is removing the stock parts. After that the CS SRI/TIP goes on quick and matches up tightly. The sound is amazing. The only draw back is a slight loss of power in the lower RPM range. I am already contemplating adding the race pipe to try to regain my low end power. Hopefully CS has a solution for the CEL on the down pipe, as well! Nothing like 310+ hp in a hatchback!!!
THE #1 mod that should be installed onto this car is this here intake. The gains are noticeable, the sound is loud enough to hear the woosh, but quiet enough where it doesn't annoy you. Absolutely spectacular product!
Great product and great quality. The car feels really strong and the sound is awesome. Derrick hooked me up with some great service and answered every one of my questions. Thanks guys!
All I can say about this intake is WOW!!!! This system was very simple to install. The only thing that took any time at all was removing all of the stock parts. Talk about a very poor flowing stock intake system!! When that was all done putting the CorkSport on was a cake walk. The inlet pipe fit rite up to the turbo nice and snug. When I was all done instaling I took the car out for a little spin. The sounds this system makes are crazy!!! It put a big smile on my face. The performance is even better!!! The turbo is rite there from the dig and never drops or falls. This is the best intake system I have ever heard or felt.The power gain's you get from this intake system are AMAZING!!!. If you have a 2010 Speed3 then you need this intake kit. Great job CorkSport for a great intake system.
Great product. Warning, I am a driver, not an installer. I do not even like to look under the hood, I just like to drive my awesome 2k10 ms3. I pay for my parts to be put on.



Pros:

-Great power increase starting mid-range and finishing through top of rpm range

-horsepower per dollar upgrade is as good as it gets

-more powerful sound than stock



Cons:

-None, this is an extremely well priced and useful part, couldn't imagine the car without it.
I noticed after installing the intake that I lost a little power in the lower rpm range. However, the top-end performance has been greatly enhanced. Stock, it used to fall on its face after 4500 or so. Now it pulls hard all the way to red-line. I recommend buying the race-pipe as well to bring back some of the low-end power you lose.
Wow! The first time I heard the sound of the intake I honestly giggled. This intake paired with a Turbosmart Dual Port BOV makes some fantastic noise; almost sounds like a purring panther. Car pulls harder and turbo spools quicker. This is a no brainer upgrade. Excellent quality product. Easy install though takes some patience, the right tools and tiny hands are useful.
The CorkSport Power Series intake for the 2010 Speed3 is absolutely amazing. Car pulls a lot harder and doesn't fall on its face for the last 500 rpm to redline as did stock. Turbo sounds nice while spooling and you even get a little BOV noise. Makes me feel like I actually have a turbo now. Excellent product waiting for cat back. Thanks guys well done.
The power series Intake is very nice and well made from CorkSport engineers. Performance wise my car pulls a lot harder on top end and the turbo spools up a lot quicker compared to stock!!!! I love the sound!!!! Next step is down pipe once CorkSport figures out engine code, so that my Mazda dealer will work on my car under warranty. Lets get the speed 3 over 310 hp. Thanks CorkSport!

Looking into intakes for my '07 ms3. Is this basically plug and play? Would I be safe doing this without a tune/HPFP internals? I don't plan on any other mods just yet.
