Question about 2006 Mazda 6 s
Rear section of exhaust replaced also recently passed mot so assume cat ok. noise usually disappears while steering on a bend and returns on the straight
Is it possible you are hearing a wheel bearing instead of the engine or exhaust ?
Normally a bearing will roar on a turn and not on a straight stretch, but I guess its possible to do it the other way. A tire will make a roaring noise too.
I can't think of anything related to the engine that would roar only on a turn except maybe the power steering.

My car is currently at the dealership with the same issue I think it is the front oxygen sensor not working which caused a lot of heat and the car would not drive more then 2 miles without over heating. I am awaiting diagnostics from Mazda but may get a cat replacement pipe installed with a new sensor.
