Price: $189.99 USD
"The CorkSport Power Series Short Ram Intake replaces your restrictive factory airbox with a free flowing intake system to get more power and sound out of your 2.5L SkyActiv Turbo. Increase efficiency, power, and style under your hood with the CorkSport Short Ram Intake. Each component in the CS intake system was designed for function and fitment to get the best out of your Mazda 6 Turbo. Dynamometer testing showed gains of 8-12WHP and some of the best noises we’ve heard from a short ram intake that installs in as little as 30 minutes!"
I purchased and installed this intake in June of 2019. It's been about 7 months now and I still enjoy the added turbo noise from the engine bay. In terms of performance, there is a very slight improvement at higher RPMs/speeds, but in regular day-to-day driving in the city, the biggest thing you'll notice is the sound. During regular acceleration from a stop, you won't hear a thing through 1st gear. Once you're in 2nd, you'll start to hear the suction from the intake. Here's a video I took when I first got the intake installed.
Overall I think it was a good purchase, though it is a tad bit pricey. One thing to note - the filter that CorkSport includes with the intake is a washable AEM DryFlow filter with the CorkSport logo embossed on the plastic. Nice to see that they're using a quality filter instead of cheaping out on a basic paper filter.
