Mazda redesigned the Mazda3 for 2010 to 2013. Changes are more than skin-deep for this sporty, yet economical, car. New to the Mazda3 is the 2.5L engine found in the 3s and hatchback models. The larger 2.5L engine is carried over from the 3's larger sibling, the Mazda6. 2010 to 2013 Mazda3 models are well-engineered machines. However, K&N engineers are constantly in pursuit of more power. After looking under the hood, K&N engineers knew that, with their expertise, these cars were capable of more.

K&N intake 69-6013TTK replaces the intake tract with a powder coated mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube and a K&N High-Flow Air Filter for improved air delivery. 69-6013TTK incorporates an application specific heat shield, isolating the air filter from the warm air under the hood. This intake system provides improved performance and a durable powder coated aluminum intake tube.

The result of this hard work and enthusiasm for performance is nearly 7 more horsepower at the wheels. K&N's Research and Development Department tested a 2010 to 2013 Mazda 3 with a 2.5L L4 engine on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed horsepower increases with a peak horsepower gain of 6.67 horsepower @ 5,604 RPM! Equally important is the extra 6.25 lb-ft of torque this car picked up at 5,604 RPM.

This air intake system uses a conical shaped High-Flow Air Filter part RU-4960XD.  It captures harmful particles, provides high airflow, and long service life. This K&N air filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required, depending on driving conditions.

For increased protection and style, K&N intake 69-6013TTK can be used with a K&N Drycharger® filter wrap. Drycharger filter wraps are made from a durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings which will stop small dirt particles and repel water; yet add little restriction to the airflow of the air filter. Available in black, blue, red or yellow, K&N Drycharger filter wraps can be color coordinated with a car's finish.

69-6013TTK is a complete system which takes about 90 minutes or less to install with common hand tools. It uses stock mounting points, requires no drilling, and is covered by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®.
