The CorkSport Advantage

stainless steel mazda 3 cat back exhaust

Sound Boost:

The CorkSport cat back exhaust completely replaces the OEM midpipes and restrictive OEM muffler section with 63.5mm mandrel bent pipe and pass-thru resonators. The larger pipe adds a great sound and tone for the backroads while the high-flowing resonators control drone so your car is still comfortable on the daily commute! We tested multiple resonator setups in both the axle back and midpipe sections and found that the asymmetric axle back design and large oval resonator in the midpipe results in the absolute best combination of tone, volume, and drone control for your MZ3.

Horsepower Gains - Non-Turbo:

What good is sound without a little power to go with it? Installing the CorkSport Cat-Back Exhaust (with the CorkSport Short Ram Intake previously installed) netted us approximately 20wTQ and 10-18wHP. You can see significant gains from 2700rpm through the rpm range til redline at 6200rpm. Note: AWD Turbo model has not been tested.

OEM Fitment:

Each CS cat back exhaust system was designed from the ground up to fit just like your OEM exhaust system. We offer two different midpipe setups for great fitment, no matter if your vehicle is AWD or FWD. Don’t worry though, both use the same resonator design so you know your car will sound great, regardless of your drivetrain!

Cylinder Deactivation:

If your Mazda 3 is equipped with cylinder deactivation don’t be worried because we have a solution for you. Utilizing a bracket made out of 304 stainless steel, you can mount your cylinder deactivation motor securely out of the way to ensure no check engine lights are set and also reduce the restriction caused by the factory internal valve.

Personalized Appearance:

The Mazda 3 catback exhaust system comes with your choice of exhaust tip option. We have fitments for the hatch, sedan, and even the hatch with the aero kit! The aero kit option is simply a more aggressive hatch fitment that goes perfectly with the more aggressive OEM Mazda aero kit. If you want a more subdued look, the regular hatch fitment also looks great. To top it off, each tip fitment can be adjusted outward to suit exactly the look you are going for on your Mazda!

2019 to 2021 how to installation instructions for the mid exhaust pipe for the Mazda 3

The cat back exhaust is absolutely amazing. I have it on my 2022 Mazda 3 gx an it sounds fantastic. From 2K to 3K rpm’s it sounds amazing and definitely worth the purchase. The cold start definitely catches you off guard and you really feel it.
This exhaust is absolutely amazing. From the sound of it, to the quality of the exhaust. It was so nice I almost didn’t want to install it. The deep non raspy tone of the exhaust is perfect and it doesn’t sound like your regular N/A 4 cylinder. I went with the aero package tips even though I don’t have the aero package because I wanted the tips to stick out a little bit further. I can’t say enough about this exhaust and how well crafted it was.
Deeper tone. Louder from inside but not obnoxiously so. No drone. Absolutely love how the exhaust tips extend slightly past my rear bumper
this has been an amazing addition to my Turbo 3, great sound, not too loud but loud enough.. love it
Highly recommend the CorkSport Catback exhaust for the 4th Gen Mazda3. I installed it in my garage in about 3 hours with the rear of the car on ramps and front on jack stands. The instructions are fantastic and the quality of the exhaust is very impressive. My car sounds fantastic and looks good too. My only “complaint” is that the tips are finicky to get aligned and tightened with the clamps. I’d probably suggest taking it to a muffler shop and getting the tips tack welded on so you don’t have to worry about them.

My Mazda does not have the appearance kit included stock. If I'm looking to upgrade to an appearance kit in the future, can I buy the appearance kit version of the exhaust and use it stock until I buy the appearance kit? Will it still fit?

So I know this deletes the secondary CAT, but isn't that illegal in all 50 states? I also know this is for "off-road" use. I live in NJ, and our emissions testing is pretty uptight, would my MZ3 fail the testing? It's probably a yes, but I'd still like to make sure. Wouldn't it also throw a CEL if you remove the secondary CAT, considering there is usually a sensor to detect it? Thanks.

I have a 2021 Mazda 3 100th Annie. A post a few months ago said that the 80 mm catback exhaust for the 2021 turbo should be out in a few months. Is this going to be available in the next couple weeks? If not, I'm interested in the 63.5 mm option too. What would you recommend?
