    I have heard that Corkscrew is a good one?

    Any recommendations for 2014 and Newer Catback exhaust ideas or brands for the GT Hatchback with the 2.5 ?

    I have a racing beat, its a quieter than an corksport and doesn't drone like corksport at cruising speeds and it sounds excellent in my opinion when you give it the beans.

    Corksport is around $800 for the Catback from the USA.
    How much are the other ones like Borla, Magnaflow, Racing beat?

    I've seen borla from 640 - 800 and magnaflow for 700-800 & racing beat is the cheapest one out of the 3 which is around 400 -580

    Than my next question is... with looking at some videos online through Youtube.. Which sounds like a Speed3 but has some balls to the growl so it is not too loud but enough to sound Decent (Since we are talking upgrading a 2.5L 185 HP Engine Mazda GT Sport..) Suggestions?

    I'd personally go with the borla exhaust has prolly the best reviews from Mazda owners and other cars, magnaflow is good too but I've been seeing reviews that it drones a lot

    I'm actually thinking about wrapping mine light smoke (from eBay). Had VHT nightshades before, but got tired of the blacked out look, so took them off and ruined by taillights in the process (lesson learned, avoid VHT at all costs, it's a pain to remove and you might end up ruining the finish if you're not careful). They're GT tailights too lol, pretty exp to replace, might check out some wreckers for a bargain.

    I also vouch for CarID, lots of options, mainly US and Euro brands, Magnaflow, Borla, etc. Shipping to Canada can be pricey depedning on the item though. I'd recommend just adding to cart and calculate shipping before you check out (just to be safe).
    Besides that, there's also Nengun which I recommend for JDM brands. They also got a platform on the website where you can buy used parts. They ship worldwide as well.
    On a side note, have you considered a MS3 exhaust for your 3? It sounds pretty good, not too loud, but brutal still.

    Borla seems the way to go, but I am still on the fence about Turbo-Charging my Mazda3 2014 down the road. I mean I bet they will come out with a AWD version soon.

    I'm not confident that they will come out with an AWD 3...it would defeat the purpose of having a CX3 on the market

    I think this may be an accessory cbe for the 2.3 as its supposed to be a 3" tailpipe, off a stock speed i believe its 4"

    I suggest going with either Crok-sport and Bro-la since they add 15% / 20 HP.

    Because Borla or Corksport may at best add 5 HP if you do catback.
