    After watching Kmac's video of his exhaust I decided to copy him. I bought a Magnaflow muffler #12266 and had my resonator switched out with a straight aluminized pipe (same size as stock piping). I'm not sure if the mechanic had a lot of experience with installing mufflers since he kinda just...

    I have had the resonator gone now for a few months. Im not looking to change the exhaust anytime soon. Possibly a test pipe this summer but thats it. I wanted to post these sound clips as I have had a few people ask me how it sounded and how i was liking it. Its not nealry as deep as a full...

    Still in testing but so far I love the sound. Finally a deeper tone on a 4 cylinder feels good man. This was custom made by Stromung exhaust. Once the product is finalized I will get a price and see if you sky activ owners wanna do a group buy :)

    Ok guys so i couldn't find any real info on a skyactiv muffler delete. Im considering doing it and before anyone says it, Im sorry if this a redundant post. the search engine works like shit here and as far as I can tell no one has specifically talked about this. SO for a skyactiv exhaust...

    this is the current sound. I might put a race straight through muffler and do a Y pipe after it, just wondering how loud its gonna be. might throw a couple more cans of VHT header paint before going there, maybe the sound will get even nicer :D

    Hi Guys, I've searched the forum and youtube for a video with someone that has a 2010+ Mazda 3 with a Racing Beat exhaust and removed the resonator. I have the RB exhaust and am considering removing the resonator. I am aware that it will be louder and one response I heard on this forum is...

    I've looked all over for it and I can't seem to find a clip of it. Does anyone have a link to a clip for a 2.5L MZ3 with Racingbeat Exhaust, a short ram intake, and a resonator delete? It doesnt have to have a intake but I'd like to hear one that does because I have an injen+racingbeat exhaust...

    I have a 2012 2.5l hatch and want the deep rumbling sound that you hear on cars like an srt4 something like in this video should i get both the resonator and muffler removed or just the resonator or just the muffler and what are the price ranges for each option.

    I'm looking at doing a resonator delete on the ms3 and happen to have an extra mid pipe laying around so I don't have to hack into the one currently on the car. Should an exhaust shop be able to remove the resonator on the extra one and weld in the new pipe without having to do any fit checks...

    This may be a dumb question, but I was wondering if anyone has done a resonator delete with the Corksport exhaust? Is this even possible? Sound clips if anyone has it would greatly help
  11. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I did a search and didn't come up with much. Has anyone done a Resonator delete along with their racing beat exhaust? Thinking about having it done, but I'm not sure about doing it without knowing what its going to sound like. Sound clip would be great is there is one floating around that I...

    I finally got around to installing the Massive Speed balance shaft delete kit today on my 2.5L... all has gone smooth so far. To drain the oil, remove the rear motor mount, drop the pan, remove the oil pickup, pull the balance shaft assembly and install the block off plate it took about five...

    Not sure if anyone else has done this to their 2010+ 3 yet, so I'm posting my experience. VTCS stands for Variable Tumble Control System. It's a set of flaps at the end of the intake runners that are closed when coolant temps are below 140F and 3750 RPM. When either of these conditions are...

    I have had my flowmaster 80 corssflow for awhile now and while it did increase the sound by a bit i just wanted it a bit louder so a couple weeks ago i got my resonator deleted and i really like how it sounded, so this thread is for a person maybe wanting to get their resonator deleted and want...

    This was my experience installing oem fogs on a car that didn't come with them... Last night I installed My OEM fog lights, with overlays, HIDs, and stealth bulbs. I got my HID kit from DDM Tuning same as my lows although I noticed that it didn't come with the sticker the showed the wattage...

    I think this sounds pretty good, and apparently it was pretty cheap. Might try to do something like this... I think it sounds different than both the RB and the CS. Thoughts?
  18. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Anyone tried just deleting the resonator, cheap and dirty, with the 2.5? Trying to find something worth doing to the exhaust that's quieter than the Corksport, not $500, and yet removes that nauseatingly smooth drone sound found in this video at 0:05 (credit to Be Evil, haha): OEM exhaust...

    I am trying to find out if anyone has done a muffler delete on their new 2010 Mazda 3 2.0. I am looking for something that won't be too loud and will have a deep tone. Any videos would help.
