Right for my mazda?

I have an 08 Mazda 2.3L Hatch. I was wondering... is this the right selection for my car? I looked over the forums and searched and did not find anything for my car. If anyone has any ideas on where to get one for my car please feel free to reply to the thread. thanks.

Re: Right for my mazda?

yes this is fine. I dont believe there is any difference extreme enough to allow it to not work. Just remember tho, when you buy a cai your risking hydro-lock. It doesnt happen that often, but it usually depends on your driving habits and climate of your location. If your in a hot area with little rain, then this is your best bet. If your in a cold climate area, go with an sri. If your not worried about that then this is a great product.

I think they sell them (AEM) as an add on for any of their intakes. Just have to cut and splice in into the pipe I think.

If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.

Almost all of the site sponsors sell the AEM CAI and the bypass valve. Support the site!

Re: Right for my mazda?

the aem stock is an oil filter, which requires cleaning and oiling every so often. The aem dryflow just requires washing.

I think so, it's much easier to maintain that's for sure.

If you're worried about water, consider getting one of these:

They will help protect the filter from water and also filter out larger particles that would normally get stuck in the pleats of the filter.
