It is back from the dead! CorkSport is happy to announce the return of the Mazdaspeed 6/MPS 6 shift plate. We took our original design and adjusted it based on feedback from customers who owned the original to bring you a new and improved product.
CorkSportâ€™s Mazdaspeed 6 Short Shift Plate has been designed to provide a 33% reduction in shift throw. The unique design of our shift plate provides maximum benefit to Mazdaspeed 6 drivers by changing the geometry at the shifter end to remove the feeling of synchros where it is most noticeable – in gears one and two. The shift plate bolts directly to the car, eliminating the need to bolt on to the factory or an aftermarket counterweight.
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 has driven its way into the hearts and lead feet of car aficionados everywhere. The Atlanta Business Journal says this bad boy â€śsquarely hits the nail on the head,â€ť and Motor Trend couldnâ€™t get enough of it.
Our reaction? Roughly summed up, it looks something like this:
We love it, and we want you to love it too. So weâ€™re going to share what this little numberâ€™s got going on under and above the hood, and let you know about the ace aftermarket parts weâ€™ve got for you to make it even better.
This may seem long overdue, but let me explain â€¦
Here at CorkSport we listen to all of our awesome customers and take great care on how we plan our projects for product development. A well-fitted front lip specifically designed for the Mazdaspeed3 has understandably been a very frequent request. There is a lot that goes into producing a great product, especially a tight-fitting front lip. Long story short: We wanted to get all of our ducks in a row before we attempted to execute a custom Mazdaspeed3 product you all would love.
Itâ€™s fair to say that we all love the look of a lowered car, especially when itâ€™s your car right? However what we donâ€™t love is lowered headlights, but sadly thatâ€™s a result of your rideâ€™s new look. There are less desirable ways to fix the new lowered headlight issue and there are correct ways. Here at CorkSport, we wanted to provide you the correct method to get your headlights back in line.
Back in March 2015, I bought my Mazda3 i Touring brand-new from the dealership with intentions of keeping it stock. Clearly, that didnâ€™t last long. The challenge was how to make an already fun car more fun. Thatâ€™s when I turned to CorkSport.
Having purchased my third Mazda, and having numerous friends who shop through the company, it was a no-brainer to start here first. The first week having the car, I purchased the license plate relocation kit because, letâ€™s face it, the factory mount looks atrocious smack-dab in the middle of the grille.
CorkSport is pleased to add the new Mazda ND Miata LED Lighting Kit to our growing list of products designed to enhance the look and performance of the new Mazda MX5 models!
This kit expands CorkSportâ€™s line of LED light kits specifically designed for Mazda and Mazdaspeed model vehicles and has been customized for the Miata. Designed to replace the standard yellowish lights with cool white/blue ambient light, this kit gives your car an enhanced look in the interior of the vehicle and license plate lighting.
If youâ€™re new to reading our blogs, you may not know how we feel about Mazdas. (Spoiler alert: We like them. A lot.) As a companion piece to our post last year, 6 Hilariously Classic Mazda Models, weâ€™ve got a fresh batch of Mazdas to delight and destroy your ideas of what a Mazda should and shouldnâ€™t be.
Nothing screams OG like a minivan with rear-wheel drive and the option to switch over to four-wheel. The MPV remains in production today, though we prefer the attitude of the â€™89 model. Hell, drop some speakers in the back, and youâ€™ve got a WMD. Check out this video of one crushing a body of water.
It has been a while since I touched on the subject of Mazda giving diesel a shot again in the United States. Back in 2012, it looked promising that we would be getting the Skyactiv diesel-powered vehicles like the rest of the planet. After working on the calibrations to meet the U.S. emission standards, Mazda discovered they could meet the emissions, but could not hit the power levels to give owners the driving experience Mazda is known for. Mazda wanted to hit the targets without the addition of urea injection to clean up emissions. They were squarely behind the diesels, even racing the Mazda 6 diesel in IMSA, 25 hours of Thunder Hill, and in prototypes. In the end, the diesels were abandoned, but the message was still there: Diesel models will be sold in North America, it just became a when.
So youâ€™ve installed your brand new big brake kit, and youâ€™re thinking, â€śThese really should keep me under control.â€ť And maybe youâ€™re even dreaming about being the latest, late-braking braker of all time in your run group. Well, before you start celebrating your newfound glory, there are three things you should consider.
