Thank you. You have rated this product.

Cold Air Intake System! The new 2010-2011 Mazda 3 2.5L with manual transmission is proving to be quite a popular compact model. It provides great power, handling and fuel mileage. AEM sought a way to make this compact speedster even more powerful by developing a specially designed Cold Air Intake System with either gunmetal gray or polished aluminum intake tube finishes.

"The development of a true cold air induction system for the 2010-2011 Mazda 3 was approached by keeping the overall design and installation of the system simple while still enabling it to perform significantly better than the stock intake," says product design manager John Concialdi. He also explained that the intake itself is simple for the end user to install in part due to the development of a special throttle body coupler which allows use of the OEM PCV hard line.

The intake itself was developed with 2.75" diameter tubing that goes to a cone shaped air filter with an offset flange. This allows placement of the filter in a low isolated location behind the front fascia so it feeds cooler outside air to the engine. AEM's RandD group tested several different Venturi sizes until the right one was found to satisfy their demands for proper fuel trims and power output.

The 21-695C and 21-695P intakes performed strongly during testing showing a gain of 6.7 hp at 6100 rpm and 5.75 ft-lbs of torque at 6100 rpm. This kind of performance gain along with an easily cleaned non-oiled filter create a simple yet powerful upgrade for your new 2010 Mazda 3 2.5L with manual transmission. AEM has been pioneering well engineered Cold Air Induction systems since 1994 and the 21-695C and 21-695P are no exception to AEM's strive for great performance and precision engineering.

REVIEWS

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.

Thanks for making this work and providing great customer service! I had a full weekend with the install, but man was it worth it. The flywheel was such a good choice. I can't believe how much easier rev-matching down shifts are. The ACT is surprisingly easy to live with, even with the engagement point very low. I'll tackle that when it stops raining. Thanks again for making this happen this weekend.
