Now of course, I love Flyin Miata. If Flyin Miata had a grocery store, I would shop there just to get the little flyin Miata shopping bag, if Flyin Miata sold Dog Food, I would buy their Turbodog Brand, if Flyin Miata had condoms, I would buy there GT28 series size condoms. Heck, if Flyin Miata had toilet paper, I would wipe my a## with their toilet paper.
Seriously, now I am considering the Flyin Miata 2.5 inch Duel exhaust without a catalytic converter, remember I do live in Alabama, our cops don't care about that stuff.
I don't know, but i've seem some reports done and it appears that cfm flow more than double when the catalytic converter is removed, would this more than offset the disadvantage of a 2.5 inch exhaust?
Second, everyone seems to talk about power, power, and more power. To be honest, I was happy with my 7psi Jackson Racing Supercharger, it had a predictable 150-160 horsepower, but I could not justify spending a 1,000 dollars more on a TDR intercooler. Why does supercharging necessarily mean i'm a wayward soul, I loved my JRSC supercharger and that's why I am so hesitant to just go and buy some big big turbo, because I place power predictability and drivability as my number one most important aspect. I have driven 289 horsepower Miata's and IDK it's almost like its too much power. Most people claim that the GT2554r turbo responds like a supercharger and has a headroom of 220-240 horsepower, I will never go over 220 horsepower..
There is one thing that i'll miss with the supercharger, and that is the sound of what can best be described as a jet turbine engine. Does all turbos sound like blowing air through a straw? And BTW, blowoff valves, obnoxious...
