Maximize airflow and increase power with the CorkSport Power Series Single Exit 60mm Exhaust for the 2010-2013 2.0 liter standard and SkyActiv Mazda 3.
Featuring dual resonators, a slip fit compression connection to the aft end of the catalytic converter and a single tailpipe design, the CorkSport Mazda 3 exhaust eliminates the factory tailpipe muffler and features a non-resonated CorkSport dual wall 90mm exhaust tip.
During testing, the CorkSport Mazda 3 Power Series Single Exit Exhaust went from a baseline of 118hp/110lb ft. of torque to a respectable 135hp and 123lb ft. of torque at the wheels when tested with the CorkSport Power Series Short Ram Intake. The 2.0L results are moderate at the bottom end (with around a 4-5hp/tq gain) below 4000rpm with the majority of the power coming on rapidly at around 4500rpm and held steadily to the 7000rpm redline. This really shows how constrained the stock system was for the smaller 2.0L engine.
The CorkSport Advantage:
Features dual resonators, a slip fit compression connection and single tailpipe design.

My stock exhaust sprung a leak at the weld on one of the exhaust hangers and was getting worse and worse, bad gas mileage, down on power the whole shebangabang. I did a lot of research and looked at every single exhaust option on the market, over and over again. I was really considering factory exhaust, or I've seen that people have put either the 2.5L or the speed 3 exhaust on their Skyactiv but that seemed like a bit of extra work, and I'd have to get a dual exhaust rear bumper cover, plus I couldn't quite figure out how well it would fit, if it would need to be modified all that, and all the other aftermarket options seemed pretty loud. I just wanted more power without a lot of noise, did not want it to be ricey. I already had the Corksport intake on my car, and the exhaust seemed to add a nice sound without a lot of noise, and corksport makes good stuff so that's what I went with. I put it on yesterday morning and love it. I immediately noticed a difference in power, everywhere, it sounds great, it's loud enough to enjoy it but it's not crazy loud, not droney, and not raspy. It's perfect. And it has a beautiful exhaust tip that just peeks out. I'm super glad I went with the Corksport option, it's great stuff and highly recommended. I just wish there were more power upgrades for the Skyactiv. I saw on YouTube the Skyactiv 2.5L throttle body is direct bolt on and plug and play but is a bigger diameter, dude said he noticed a difference, maybe I'll go to the junkyard and try to find one next.

I LOVE THE EXHAUST! Sounds amazing and made my car have such a nice sound and tone! Very easy to do as well!

Awesome product! The sound is amazing, nice and deep. Hardest part of the install is removing the old exhaust, but you can make quick work of welded nuts with a sawzall and a good blade. Definitely would recommend this product to anyone looking for a throatier, deeper sound
