The Racing Beat Power Pulse Mazda 3 Exhaust System for the 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv 4-Door Sedan (2.0/2.5 ltr) is a complete 304-stainless steel exhaust designed specifically for the Mazda 3 Skyactiv application.

All Racing Beat exhaust components are tuned in-house to provide a balance of tone quality and aggressive spirit. The Mazda 3 Skyactiv 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 Mazda 3 Skyactiv. Racing Beat Testing Notes: Sound level evaluation - The sound level output of the Racing Beat Mazda 3 exhaust system is well-suited for use on a daily driven car. Based on our driving experience with this application, both city and highway driving evaluations provided similar feedback with the exhaust system offering a modest increase in tone during acceleration, without any droning at highway cruising speeds. To maximize fuel economy, Mazda's engineer's have programmed the transmission shift points in the low 2000 RPM range, which further limits excessive exhaust tone. The upper half of the power band is typically utilized under full throttle acceleration, producing the most notable increase in exhaust tone. Aggressive but never unpleasant sounding.
Exhaust System - 4 Door Mazda3 Skyactiv 2.0/2.5
I thought I would be disappointed that this system would be too loud or drone. Not loud at all and zero drone! In fact, a little more quiet than I had hoped! With my wife in the car on a road trip - she never noticed if that tells you anything. (she didn't know I had changed it and she drives an '18 hatch daily)
Very good sound but I had hoped to hear it more since my car has the super small tach that I can't see and I use my car at HPDE events. Windows down in 4th and 5th gear WOT with a helmet on produced no audible noise but the butt dyno tells me it does seem to make a bit more power.
Very high quality and super easy to install. Weight savings wasn't massive unless you include my wallet...
