Add a boost in horsepower and torque to 2014 or 2015 Mazda 3 2.0 liter models with a manual transmission with the AEM cold air intake system 21-765C.

AEM pioneered the cold air intake market in the 1990s and this legacy of precision-tuned intake systems is visible even today with the 21-765C 2014-2015 Mazda 3 2.0L cold air intake. A mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube replaces the corrugated factory intake tubing, helping to streamline airflow into the engine. The tube is coated in a durable gunmetal grey powder coat to help ensure the 2014-2015 Mazda 3 2.0L manual trans CAI system will look good for years to come.

An AEM Dryflow® reusable air filter 21-202DOSK, is fitted to the end of the air intake tube to help minimize restriction as well as provide outstanding engine protection. Another benefit of the AEM Dryflow air filter’s design is that it is washable and reusable with the ability to go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. The filter is placed in the driver’s side wheel well, allowing the engine to draw cooler air from outside the vehicle which can aid in increasing horsepower., An AEM air filter wrap 1-4000, is available separately if splashes of water are a concern.
