Hello people, I can't seem to find an Air Intake for my 1994 Mazda MX-3. It is a 4-Cylinder. I found an HKS Intake for the 6-Cylinder but I can't find any Air Intake for the MX-3 can someone help me find a Intake company that makes Intakes for 4-Cylinder MX-3s? thanks

u can use just about any cone filter for ur air intake. Ive heard of people using honda civic kits for isuzu rodeos and it works fine. just get somethning that fits as close as possible

I have a 95 MX-3. Its a royal peice of **** if you ask me. Its a I4 auto and its slow as hell and gets the most terrible gas mileage. I have done everything I know to make it haul *** but it wont do it. I heard of going to a junkyard and pulling a cold air intake of a Escort GT. Somethin like that. IM NOT SURE. I DO know that some people are using Civic cold air intakes on MX-3's. There is not much you can do to it if you have a four cylinder. To be honest...I dont know what made you buy that **** anyway. I would have bought a 94 Nissan Sentra over that **** ANYDAY. You can soop up a Sentra made after 91 pretty good. But yea...get on MX-3.com. They have some pretty good info on things. They will tell you to buy a Civic intake and ****. and IF you wanted to put projector headlights on it, you would use Civic ones but it will require customization. I highly recommend you get something other that an MX-3 because you are running into a death trap with that car. Just my opinion.

But you still need to use some piping. Having an intake that is only 6" long does nothing but hurt power in a N/A application.

Well for me I love the Mazda MX-3, I bought it used and my tranny is standard :p: . Anyway, I did not race the car yet. I got this car to take me places, put race parts, And a 12" W7. Mazda no longer make this car anymore so.. I love having the unique sh*t.

I still dont know why you like it so much. The only thing I like about it is that I can go around a tight dog leg curve doin about 30 and not have much body roll or feel so many g's. Maybe if that thing had the V6 auto then maybe it would do what I want it to do. I have an 88 Nissan Sentra AUTO that half way runs and has a ****** tranny that will out run that Mazda. That motor says it has 110 HP. I think it has 50 the way it runs. You have to redline it to make it get up the road pretty good.

Edit: The car is sorta rare so keep it up as best as you can. But for my Mazda, this **** is goin straight to the junk yard when I am thru with it.

I hear homedepot has some nice air intakes... Perhaps a bit of dryer ducting routed to a new hole in the airbox with a K&N inside.

Buy some aluminized piping in 90 degree, 180 degree and straight lengths and build your own...
