  3. AEM Short Ram Intake for 2 liter Mazda 3

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    First the goodies: And here comes the bad part: Our officially listed part number from AEM is 21-773C for the 2 liter Everything fits except the kit's heat shield has a different cut out hole and diameter from the factory heat shield, so the factory scoop that should be reused/reinstalled...
  4. AEM OBD2 Gauge

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey Guys, Thought I would post a quick review of the AEM OBD2 Gauge. This is one of the new X-Series gauges that has recently been released. I had one of my shops get it directly from AEM as it seems like most distributors are sold out across North America, and for good reason. I have been...

  7. OV tuning 2.5L with Axleback and AEM filter

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Update - 0-60 runs posted 8 months after final tune..... 6.8 second time logged I'm about ready to try this again sometime soon. The 1-2 shift on the 6.8 run is lousy - more of a thud into 2nd, so it's sluggish after the shift. Pretty confident I can at least hit 6.5, if not better - but it's...

  12. Modified airbox with AEM drop-in

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have been driving around without the intake piping and resonator for a while, and I didn't like the drone between 2k and 3k rpm. Throttle response was better though. I was also concerned about the heat from the radiator. I decided to put the stock piping back but cut the bottom off of the...

  19. AEM drop in for MS3

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    I run the stock airbox and a stock air filter with a stage1 tune because I like quiet power. The stock air box on a stage 1 tune flows just as well as all the aftermarket intakes do. I've compared my max flow datalogs with countless max flow datalogs from people with aftermarket intakes on stage...
