alright..so i'm sure everyone has wondered what the hks catback sounds like when bolted up the vibrant 4-2-1 header..i myself have installed this on my 07 hatch and i absolutely love it..the power gains are intense. and i mean that..im sure all of us at point wondered what these 2 great companies would like sound like together on our mazda 3's and we've all searched youtube to try and listen for it..andd nobody has ever made a video...so after installing the header..i took a video for myself for everyone else to benefit from..keep in mind if you plan on doing this setup, you will be running catless..unless you install you install your own cat...but thats up to you of course..anyway my setup is with no cats and the power gains are really great i kid you guys not..soooo much less restrictive, i cant even explain it..the hks piping is 2.5 inch which is just perfect for our car..it may seem a little too wide in diamater and i even thought for myself that i was going to have almost no backpressure and lose all my low end torque, but surprisingly, no !!! the hks does have a resonator and 2 mufflers and backpressure is absolutley not a problem..any bigger piping and there would be a problem..the guys at hks really engineered this exhaust so well..i know its nothing special but a bunch of pipe, but they engineered it well !! enjoy everyone.......

Oh and feel free to ask me any questions

no no..only on a cold start..once the engine is warm, there is no smoke or smog visible unless its super cold outside like it is here in NJ right now (about 20 degress at night)

Oh sweet! Then that makes me feel a lot better when it comes to buying the header and maybe the exhaust. Still debating over the HKS or OBX....basically the exact same thing.

Lol, yeah your car probably does sound mean as hell!

Considering you have an Injen CAI and the Vibrant Headers...which is what I might get in the end :p
