  1. Shifter Bracket Washers and Stock Airbox Nonsense

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Didn't see any posts about these so I figured I'd do a little write-up. Bought some James Barone Racing Solid Transmission Cable Bracket Bushings after a friend that knows FWD said that such a upgrade is definitely worth it. After a quick test drive this evening, I agree. Very easy...
  2. Airbox heat shield/wrap

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I was looking at the IAT reading earlier and I got a constant 40 degree on an average sunny day and I do feel the car being more sluggish when that happens. Can’t imagine what it would be like when it’s actually hot out. So now I’m thinking about adding a heat shield/wrapping the oe airbox. I’m...

  4. Back on stock airbox.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I just took off my corksport SRI and reinstalled my stock air box. The reason for this is because without a tune, the SRI was just hindering the low RPMs like mad! On my Auto (Yes I know my auto) the gears werent shifting right and it felt sluggish until I got up to speed. It started to...
  5. Stock Airbox Flow test ....

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    All, I tend to get a bit wordy so I'll try and keep it brief. Being in California, we can not "legally" use a SRI. In addition there are many that feel like the OEM airbox can provide plenty of air and does a better job because it uses a snorkel to pull cold air from the outside. So I got an...
  6. What is the extra filter in the airbox?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Was looking at my airbox and noticed there is some sort of mesh filter in the lid. Anyone know what this is and if I can remove it without affecting performance or smog? I've been trying to add photos but this site won't let me anymore without crashing since the update.
  7. CorkSport SRI and AirBox problem/issue?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I put m CorkSport last night after work. I noticed I have a gap where the SRI goes into the box. It's not like major but is that a problem? Is there a wait to make that air tight?
  8. Stock Airbox / Intake Low emission vs. standard emission

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    My mazda 3 has a cold air intake and is not passing smog (CA...) Anyway, I've been looking at junk yards to find the entire air box assembly and notice that there are 2 types for the 04-09 mazda 3's (I have a 05 2.3L SP hatch if that matters): US market, standard emissions (Fed) and US...

    Hello, Want to sell my Skyactiv Airbox and SRI. Had these on my car for about 7-8 months and only about 6,000 miles. Both are in great shape. Only reason I am selling was that it made my car just a bit too loud for my taste. Price is $150 for both items. Am located in Virginia and am willing...
  10. CorkSport Intake & Airbox Suggestions?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So I am debating whether or not to order the CorkSport SRI with the new airbox from Corksport. I have heard alot of good things and a few flaws about the CorkSport Intake. Has anyone encountered any problems with their CorkSport Intake? - protruding screw near the MAF sensor? - anyone notice...

  13. 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...

    Hey all. I've never posted on here before but I have no other choice but to ask these forums. I'm wondering if anybody in Illinois or the neighboring states has a oem filter intake airbox that will fit a 2011 mazdaspeed 3. One that I can buy and pick up ASAP. I know that's probably a strange...

  18. DIY Airbox

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    So I've been checking into getting an airbox for my speed. I have a stage II SRI with TIP from Corksport and like anyone who loves their ride, I want to ensure it gets some decent ambient air. I checked into COBB and Corksport for a new airbox, but when I see a nearly $300.00 price tag...

  20. Corksport Skyactiv SRI Airbox

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Does anyone have the new Corksport cool air box for the Skyactiv SRI? I'm curious to hear about results before I shell out another hundred bucks to put it on my SRI. I live in Colorado so high external temperatures are really only a factor about two months out of the year. Any advise is...
