2010 Mazda 3 - 2.5L - Simota and Racing Beat noise level inside the car.

I received my window mount and my ripoff Sony ECM-DS70P mic for my Kodak Zi8 today and figured I would throw together a video. I will be installing the MSDS header on my Mazda 3 before too long. So I did a video of my drive to work to show the current noise level from the Simota SRI, and the Racing Beat Exhaust. Just a comparison video, for anyone considering these modifications. Was shot at 720p/60fps with the fake Sony ECM-DS70P

Just installed Racing Beat Axle-back Exhaust on my 2011 Mazda 3 HB 2.5L. Recorded on a Canon Vixia HF R20 HD camcorder with surround sound mic. No droning on highway until you hit the gas. Good deep sound and not ricey at all.

2008 Mazda3 Hatch Exhaust- Stock to Racing Beat
If you have any questions about the Exhaust, feel free to ask! When I was buying it, I sent the company a question about exactly how loud it was, and they responded quickly and completely: "In CA we must adhere to a 95 db limit, which the Racing Beat 04-08 Mazda3 Exhaust system is in compliance with. However, this is a controlled test in which the sound meter gauge is placed 18" from the muffler tip and the engine is held at a specified steady-state RPM during the sound test. Since we rarely stand with our ear in exactly this same manner... this test is hardly any use for letting you know how the Exhaust will actually sound from inside the car... while you're driving. In a nutshell, the Mazda3 Exhaust system that we developed will produce a very deep, throaty tone, without any harsh buzzy or raspy tones. We prefer a more "grown-up" sound for our Exhaust applications and steer away from the "Honda boy-racer" sound that seems to be popular with many of the cheap import systems on the market. Most people love the sound our Exhaust systems for this reason and we're known for having one of the more sporty and reasonable Exhaust line on available for the Mazda market."
