COBB Tuning announces the immediate availability of the COBB Turbo Inlet Hose for the MazdaSpeed 3. This
sleek, high temperature silicone hose replaces the clunky plastic OEM piece. The interior features a uniform lining
and incorporates a true taper design, eliminating any sudden neck-down in diameter found on lesser designs.
The end result is a smooth, unrestricted path from the intake to the turbo inlet, adding power and improving
engine responsiveness.

The custom silicone construction of the COBB Turbo Inlet Hose rejects high engine bay temperatures and keeps
the intake air closer to ambient temperature. The steel reinforced design eliminates the issue of hose collapse
that other silicone inlet hoses suffer under vacuum at peak demand, yet allows adequate flex between the engine and the
intake.

The COBB Turbo Inlet Hose is designed to be a direct replacement of the OEM piece. Steel sleeves are used to join the
Turbo Inlet Hose to the stock intake and by-pass-valve. Installation is easy, requiring simple tools, no modifications
and all hardware is included. Color choices include traditional COBB Blue and our new Stealth Black.

The COBB Turbo Inlet Hose for the MazdaSpeed 3 offers intelligent design, premium construction and high value.
They are in stock and available NOW!

COBB Blue Part #: 771001BL
Retail Price: $165

Stealth Black Part #: 771001BK
Retail Price: $165

How come you couldn't wait for the projected Jan. 30th date if that were the case?

No significance to this thread at all.

There's some ways to make small changes, but all companies try to make the best product available. Seeing the same characteristics in design isn't unheard of.


EDIT:::
Question for Cobb.

Are new maps going to be added for the Cobb AP with the addition of the INLET? Or is the inlet not enough to make a difference to the tune to justify the map change?

actually cobb showed pictures of theirs first, and the cobb one doesn't neck down right at the turbo inlet like the cp-e one does.

Can't really say. Never followed their marketing and such until recently when their DP came out.

Why sell when you can just use what you have?

all inlets neck down...or else it won't fit the turbo...

RPMC and HTP which are metal...they stay 2.5 inches all across...however the silicone coupler at the neck is an adapter...therefore it necks down too

i know they all reduce, but cpe's looks like it necks down in the 3-4 inches right before the turbo inlet, while the cobb piece appears to taper evenly from the intake end to the turbo end, which should make for a little cleaner airflow, imo.

im unfamiliar with what "cleaner airflow" means?!? is there a "filtering effect" im unaware of going on here? it could be said that its not so much "taper".... but its just a smaller, even dimension and flow design.even flow, doiesnt mean better flow. thats an engineering question. if the inlet is smaller all the way back, youre gonna get less taper. the inlet is smaller diameter. the tubes arent rolled. the nipple is plastic. there isnt a bracket on top. theres all sorts of differences between this inlet and the other one. i dont like the comparison. other than being inlets, and both being silicone..... every other possible feature is different.

hey, im not the one that said they looked similar, i just pointed out that cobb showed theirs first afaik, so get off my shit.

by cleaner airflow, i mean less turbulent. by having a less drastic taper, it would appear that the cobb intake disrupts the flow into the turbo less than the cpe. that said i'm sure they're both great designs and 99.9% of people who buy these won't notice any difference in the flow characteristics of the two inlets.

using that theory we should all keep our dps at 2.5in if we dont replace the catback. less restriction wherever it is isnt gonna be a bad thing. in front of the turbo there just even less of an issue. do larger intakes cause a problem too?

im on your shit cause you made a comment that was pure speculation and i disagree with it. how does a larger inlet "disrupt flow" on the suction side.... thats ludicrous. if youre gonna say it, explain it. there will be no difference with flow on a stock turbo with these inlets. none. on the big turbos the cpe owns. that is of course unless a gt30 or larger doesnt collapse these things.
