First Look: 2010 Mazda 3

Welcome back!

On this edition of CSBlog we’ll be getting our first look at a 2010 Mazda 3!

We were able to get our hands on a 2010 Mazda 3 sedan to do some part fabrication and testing. The 3 that we got was equipped with the 2.0L engine and an automatic transmission. A couple of things that I noticed about the car right away were that this really is just a face lift, the undercarriage is mostly the same as earlier models. On this revision Mazda did finally make the exhaust system 2 pieces, so no more cutting the factory exhaust to remove it from the car, which is a bonus. This is a short update, but I really just wanted to show you the single exit and dual exit exhausts, and the SRI (Short-Ram Intake) that we were able to develop for it.

Couple pictures of the underside of the car:

Here’s a picture of the prototype dual exhaust I whipped up:

That’s all for now!
