  1. AXLEBACKS: Borla vs Ultra racing ?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    - first post - What are the main differences between these two? Is the borla louder or does it just have a more high pitch than ultra racing? If so is the lower end of the ultra racing still a reasonable volume? Been trying to decide based off of YT videos lol.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I installed the borla s-type exhaust on my 2018 and noticed that there's a slight gap where the exhaust flange is. I've tightened the bolts down probably tighter than they should be but that seems to be the only way to get rid of the gap. Anyone else experience this issue?
