I love the way my CX-3 looks, the tech inside and the easy way it drives. But how it sounds annoys me more and more.
Before I had a VW Golf 1.8 GT and with a few tweaks it sounded like a bad ass out of hell with a nice deep engine sound and thundering deep tones from the exhaust.
But it more seems like the Mazda CX-3 even tweaked still has that thin high pitch whining sound you associate with small Asian cars and no “deep thunder from the basement” if you get my drift.......
What do I have to do to make my 2.0 Skyactive petrol engine sound as a 2.0 engine, an engine with a deep voice and a growing sound when it stands still or is being put to work?
Racing Beat Exhaust
Lots of “sound” videos out there.
I think the HKS doesn’t do much; and the Remus has been somewhat of a more popular one albeit pretty pricey. Corksport looks like the more affordable one with a nice sound.
Then again, my opinion is that the only truly sexy engine sound is from a muscled-out ‘76 Firebird (etc..) or Harley where the idle is....barely idling
CX3’s were built as a run-around vehicle so there isn’t too much out there for tweaking performance drastically in the engine bay anyway.
Hope that helps.
