  2. Engine light on after installing CAI

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    2.0l mz3, the car drives fine and everything but am getting a engine light, going to assume it's running too lean judging by all the other posts about it. My question is, will it be safe to just drive it or should I just put the standard intake on
  3. Question on CAI filters

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So right now I am looking at the K&N CAI as one of several mods I plan on doing this year, but while researching different CAIs/SRIs, I learned a bit about the oiled filters used on CAIs. Most trouble (getting oil on sensors and causing a CEL) seems to take place after a cleaning and re-oiling...
  4. Injen CAI installed, check engine light on

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey so I purchased an Injen cold air intake (tuned intake) for my 2014 Mazda 3 2.0 ... installed it no problem, very easy obviously. About a week later the check engine light comes on throwing code P0171 .. so I loosen all clamps and re-position pipes and re-tighten everything.. light goes...
  5. JBR CAI

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I installed the JBR CAI over the weekend, nice growl to it. I like the added power and quicker response to the throttle. On another note, I washed and waxed my car, but in doing so, I kind of noticed the rear spoiler (hatchback, of course) seemed a little loose. I remove the two plastic...
  6. Injen SP Series CAI Review (Automatic Trans)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Now that I have had my intake for a couple days I thought it would be nice to give a quick review first on the pros and cons of it, along with extensive diving into the specific parts most of us care about. With pictures too of course! So without further ado, here we go: Pros: Style! Noise...
  7. Wrapping CAI?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So as you have probably already read on my other post with the Injen CAI (Read my review, it's updated!), I noticed that after a long drive the metal pipe leading from filter to throttle body is pretty warm. Is it possible to wrap it with some of that Oreilly's/Autozone exhaust wrap? I'm not...
  8. Injen SP Series CAI

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Now wait... don't grab your pitchforks! I'm not going to ask the 1,564,293th question about the performance or if a cold air intake is good for my car. I'm actually going to be a guinea pig! >:) I wanted a CAI for my car ever since I bought it about a year ago. Well now, I found one I like (and...
  9. WTB: SRI or CAI.

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    I'm fine with either SRI or CAI for a 2008 Mazda 3i. Budget is about $70, located in Canada, GTA area. If you're willing to ship and still have it under $70, awesome. Shoot me a message either here, or by email @ [email protected] Thanks.
  10. Injen CAI Overall Review

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    (disclaimer, I did not take any install pics) Hi all! After doing much research and forum reading (thank you everyone). I decided to purchase the Injen CAI for my 2010 Mazda 3s 2.5. After driving on it for about 250 miles, I figured I would give a quick review for anybody else looking into...
  11. 2.0/2.3L Engine AEM CAI Trade

    Buy / Sell / Trade
    Hey there, I have an AEM Cold Air Intake that I am trying to either trade or sell! Only reason I am getting rid of it is because yesterday I just completely slammed my car, and well I fear of hydrolocking my car with it on. It works fine and is in amazing condition, but I just fear of my engine...
  12. Injen CAI OR SRI w/added cold air box

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone so another intake question here. As the title says, which one would you go with? Ive read that the SRI is useless without the additional cold air box, but paying 300 bucks for a Sri that should have already came with a heat shield seems too much, it looks like the Injen CAI tried...
  13. K&N CAI for 2.0 SKY is there any difference in brands?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I'm looking into getting a CAI for my 2.0 SKY. I've been looking at K&N as it's only sale for $250 here in Ontario. Is there really a difference between the varying brands that make them? I know people go for Corksport a lot but I assume they'll be the same as KN in terms of make a quality...
  14. Corksport Cat-Back and Injen CAI Review.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    First off, I am driving a 2015 Mazda 3 i-Sport, Automatic 2.0L Hatch. I'm going to go ahead and list some pros and cons to make this a little easier to read and form an opinion on. I did do the work for both myself and have the experience where I feel comfortable with my decisions. Corksport...
  15. K&N CAI

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    ....replaced the stock CAI with a K&N CAI and could not be happier. It looks very cool, has upped my MPG to 40 mpg, and sounds sooooooo good. Installation was a breeze and I've had no issues at all. It definitely was a worthwhile upgrade..... :laugh2:

  17. 2012 Mazda 3 Sky 2.0 SRI and CAI grey areas

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hi there so this is my post to the forums and I've looked around a bit. I'm seeing lots of posts to do with SRI and what makes people are using. From what I'm seeing however, on most of the makes on these websites is that the mazda 2012 skyactive 2.0 seems to not fit alot of these options. for...
  18. SRI(Corksport) vs CAI (Injen)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I've been doing research but hardly any real numbers out there. I know a CAI would be ideal over a SRI when it comes to hot temps in summer down here in FL. But does anyone have any reason or experience with similar products to assume that the heatshield might not work well so getting a CAI...
  19. CAI for 2.5L?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Has anyone made a CAI for the 2.5L yet? I'm finding them for the MZ6 2.5L and the MZ3 2.0L.
