Thank you. You have rated this product.
Engineered and developed in-house by Racing Beat, our CX-3 exhaust components are produced using only 304-stainless steel materials; then polished to a brilliant shine for an outstanding appearance. Each muffler unit is an easy-to-install rear muffler assembly and can be readily installed by any weekend mechanic using only simple hand tools! All required mounting hardware is included.
Mazda included a non-removable catalytic converter unit in the mid-pipe section of the vehicle that unfortunately prevents the easy installation of a true "bolt-on, cat-back" exhaust system. The Racing Beat CX-3 muffler section attaches directly to the outlet of the stock mid-pipe section using a Mazda OE mounting flange and utilizes the original hanger mounting positions.
The Racing Beat CX-3 exhaust is 50-state emissions compliant.

All Racing Beat exhaust components are designed and tuned in-house to provide a balance of tone quality and aggressive spirit. The CX-3 exhaust has been developed for use on the Skyactiv engine and produces a very deep, low exhaust note - without any harsh, buzzy, or droning sounds. Whether driving in-town or on the highway, the Racing Beat exhaust system produces an ideal tone to match the personality of the fun-to-drive and sporty CX-3!
RB Driving Notes: Part of the Skyactiv fuel economy strategy is to utilize automatic transmission shift patterns around the 2200 RPM range, which aids in improved fuel economy while also keeping the exhaust note at a modest level. Causal driving after the installation of the Racing Beat exhaust produced a very pleasing exhaust note during normal acceleration, but the exhaust note comes alive with a more aggressive tone when the engine downshifts and higher RPMs are achieved during hard acceleration, passing, etc.. Note: DOES NOT FIT AWD MODELS, this one 2WD version only.
