    Default Do all straight thru design exhaust sound the same?

    Just as the title states. Currently have a 2007 GT 2.3 mazda 3 with a full magnaflow cat back system. Hate the tone. Want a deeper tone that will not change over time. Anyone have flowmasterr mufflers on their 2.3?
    Thx.

    I suggest ... (you may already) is look up youtube mazda 3 exhaust / header / no cat/ with cat/ with high flow cats ... and listen to others have done with their mods.

    Every combination/ manufacturers will give you a different exhaust note.

    True !!

    ...plus all the other variables that affect the sound...fuel grade, outside temp, age of rest of non modded part, car mileage & Tune ...

    though better than nothing .

    Maybe we should do a car meet & listen event ... "Bust the db sound meter"

    Magnaflow is as deep as it gets. Flowmaster may be deeper if you custom build a unit.
    Too Many Mods To List

    wow way to dig this up a year ago, even the same exhaust on the same car could sound a bit different.
