Get added power and upgrade the look of your 2013+ Mazda CX5 with the CorkSport Power Series Axle Back Exhaust. With the release of the 2013 Mazda CX-5, Mazda had pushed the Kodo design language into new territories. Suddenly the market had a crossover vehicle with the handling and style of a Mazda. As a completely new vehicle the engineers at CorkSport were given free reign to design an axle back exhaust in the best way fitting to the graceful design of the CX-5. As always, the CorkSport Mazda CX5 exhaust is constructed from T-304 stainless steel and is TIG welded with precision laser cut flanges and features full mandrel bending to eliminate any possible flow restrictions.
The CorkSport Advantage:
Stainless Steel T304 construction with 90mm stainless tips for corrosion resistance and a clean stylish look.
Mandrel bent, true 60.5mm piping for increased flow and more power from your engine
Save 8lbs over the stock exhaust.
7+ horsepower gain over the stock exhaust.
CorkSport Service and Support: Receive a 2 year warranty, full color installation instructions, all of the needed installation hardware and knowledgeable telephone support
The CX5 Axle Back Exhaust will only work with gas/petrol models. It will not work on diesel models.
Disclaimer: NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) in the cabin of your vehicle will be slightly increased by the installation of this exhaust, especially on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission.
Took 15 minutes to install if that (have some muffler strap pliers to make it easy). Sounds great, not like some cracked out weed-whacker. I was told, and accepted, an exhaust that supposedly had a blemish. I gave up looking for the blem as this is all nice and shiny and looks great on the car. Was worried that it would be too loud for the wife during acceleration or downshifting but she likes it. Very happy.

I put this exhaust on my 2014 CX-5 in about 20 minutes by myself. I sprayed WD40 on the bolts and rubbers about 1/2 hour prior. You will need a 14 mm deep wall socket to take the old muffler off. The CorkSport muffler goes on with a 17 mm and a pair of pliers with no problem. I didn't have a torque wrench so I just didn't over tighten the 17 mm bolts. I'll check it in a couple of days again. The new system is not really loud at all when idling or when the car goes into 6th gear, but it sounds great when you get on it. I assume it'll be loud at cold startup, and then quiet down at idle. All in all, I'm very happy with it so far. Looking forward to the cold air intake later on.
1) Your description claims a 7+ hp gain but there is no dyno chart posted- could you please post the dyno chart vs. stock exhaust to back up this claim?
2) As another posted mentioned, could you please post a video/sound clip, from inside the cabin, in a 2.5L CX-5 at highway cruising speed and also a WOT throttle run going through the gears? thanks
