Thank you. You have rated this product.

The Racing Beat exhaust for Mazda CX-3 is an ideal upgrade for the CX-3 owner looking to add a bit more sporting tone and attitude to their driving experience.

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.


Weight: 22 lbs

Construction Materials: 304 Stainless Steel

Attachment Hangers: 12mm End Hangers with 5/16" Extension Rods - All 304 Stainless Steel

Tips: Rolled Edge Double-wall with Inner taper - 3.5" OD - Stainless Steel (Laser etched Racing Beat logo)

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.

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
