Mazda 3 performance upgraded gears manual transmission
Add to wish list

Enjoy the power and performance of CorkSport's manual transmission Mazda upgrade gears designed for racing. We rigorously tested these gears in our race car and test mule for the 2022 TC America racing tour and passed with flying colors through the entire circuit. You can have confidence in CorkSport's best Mazda 3 gear set that provides optimal performance for your racing needs.

Big power means nothing if you keep breaking transmissions. If you relate to this, you might need stronger gears. During our TC America Racecar development program, we discovered that the 3rd and 4th gears in the factory manual transmission just aren’t capable of handling the extra forces that boost and sticky tires bring to the party. CorkSport’s upgraded gears are constructed of SAE 9310 Steel and Shot Peened for extra strength to allow you to keep racing with no worries. These gears were developed for road racing, but are perfectly suited for the Drag Strip or a High Powered street application.

Race Tested:

We have been running this upgraded gear set for the entire 2022 TC America race season with great reliability. Our TC racing car test mule is consistently producing 317hp, 355ft-lbs of torque thanks to our Skyactiv Turbo Kit and is wearing meaty Pirelli P-Zero Racing Slicks. We have confidence that these gears can handle the power output and forces produced by anything on the market today.

Materials and Design:

CorkSport’s upgraded gears are constructed of high-quality SAE 9310 Steel and Shot Peened for extra durability. Our gears remain helical and keep the factory gear ratios to ensure fitment into street-driven applications with OEM synchros, but are still able to utilize the added strength of the material upgrade.
