    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all. If someone is able to point me to a more suitable thread for this query that would be great. Otherwise ...

  5. Second cat/muffler delete for those who are wondering how it sounds!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Personally I HATE cats lol....But I like to be different as well and not spending $400 + on a system and save some $ at the same time. My current muffler is still 100% intact as I sourced a muffler from a cx9 that got rear ended at work and cut the flange off for my setup. Here is a link to how...
  6. Do you guys hear sounds when tightening lugs?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    When I go to put my lugs in, they begin to croak a little when it gets to the very end where it wont tighten anymore. I'm using a single-handed tire iron and not exerting that much force. I only go until it stops tightening and I'm a pretty skinny guy (so no intense muscular force on it). I have...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So I took my Mazda 3 to get an oil change yesterday and now it sounds like I have a damn glass pack for a muffler. Okay, maybe its not that bad but it definitely sounds different..

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I purchased a 2015 Mazda iGT back in October 2015. It has 22k miles on it now and I'm starting to get really irritated with the interior quality. I purchased the car because it had amazing reviews and the interior quality was noted as being excellent. The few issues I'm having: Piano black...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I have always noticed strange interior sounds like from the door handle area where that plastic piece covers a screw when there is a lot of bass. Which I still haven't fooled much with to try to fix. Now it seems that the infotainment unit itself or somewhere in that general area is making...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I've been having this sound since I picked up my car in December. They told me this sound was normal and it would go away, but it became worse overtime. It is audible both inside the car and outside. In this video I put my phone/camera down beside my left thigh. Sorry for the loud pop at 2...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Direct injectors in Skyactiv engines. You can tell that it's very organized in distributing the fuel in specific locations in the cylinder. And it's pretty neat to watch. Especially the range of pulses that they operate at in this test. Go injectors go! Bet that would make a questionable...
