  3. How to disconnect the muffler?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I want to see how my car would sound if I got a muffler delete and I know you can just disconnect the muffler. Are there any certain tools I need or is it just screws?

    So I was installing an additional horn today (went swimmingly and sounds awesome btw), and I also just so happen to have a slight fear of putting my hands in small, dark, confined spaces in which there may be electrical arcing or shock risk. The only way I could do it was to blindly put my...
