How-To: Install COBB Tuning Shift Weight on a 2010+ Mazdaspeed3

Purchase this Shift Weight directly from us HERE



For those seeking improved shift response and to ensure the transmission stays in gear during aggressive driving, they have enhanced the shifting mechanism with COBB’s CAD designed Shift Weight. Reducing the weight of the shifting system by over 0.66 lbs has improved shift speeds and the overall feel of shifting the Mazdaspeed2/6.

The specific size and shape of the CNC machined Shifter Weight make it extremely easy to install and also adds clearance for front-mounted intercoolers and cold-air intakes that pass through that area of the engine bay 

Part #: COB 271300
Brand: COBB Tuning
Return Policy: RallySport Guarantee
Mfgr. Warranty: 1 Year
Material: Steel

This is how you will receive your package, nicely packaged from Cobb.

The install on this is pretty simple. You are going to remove the factory airbox and MAF housing and this will give you direct access to the factory shift weight.

Be careful removing this clip holding the MAF sensor wiring, it is fairly fragile.

Once the MAF housing and airbox are removed you can see there are 2 12mm bolts holding the factory weight in place. You are going to remove these and reuse them with the Cobb.

Tighten the 2 12mm bolts down to 15ft/lbs with your torque wrench, reinstall everything and you are done!
