The DC Sports Short Ram Intake System for your 2010-2013 Mazda 3 is designed to increase performance and improve throttle response. We replace your restrictive, brittle, OEM rubber intake pipe with smooth mandrel-bent aluminum tubing and pair it with a DC Sports high flow, performance air filter. This allows for increased airflow, cooler air ingestion, and reduced intake air temps. Every DC Sports intake kit comes with all the needed hardware for installation and requires absolutely no modification or cutting.
