So im going turbo in a couple weeks and i am starting to purchase everything that i need. I have the exhaust kit to purchase left. A couple of people told me to just fk it and go straight pipe cat back. Or even do a cat delete and straight pipe manifold back. I fear that is going to be way to loud to the point where i can not even hear my blow off valve go off aha. So anybody have any suggestions of what i should do? i wanna be loud but not retard loud. Thanks
You've come to a performance oriented site to ask a question on how you can get the loudest engine sound while still being able to hear your BOV. You want to be obnoxiously loud. You are specifically trying to attract/draw attention to yourself, and not in a good way. Miatas currently drive "under the radar" in most of the country, and you intentionally want to change that? You want to hurt the rest of us. You disrepect the famiry. Why wouldn't we want to give you a hard time about that?
Here, I'll throw you a bone: If you're worried about hearing your BOV and your Exhaust at the same time, you don't understand how cars work. If you don't understand how cars work, selecting an exhaust is the least of your worries. Why don't you learn how to do simple things - like changing your own oil or brake pads - before you install a turbo blow up your engine?
On my first miata I ran the cheapest resonated testpipe I could find with a 45 degree turndown bolted to it. If you're contemplating a straight through exhaust I'd just do that instead. It'll be a lot cheaper, lighter, and equally obnoxious. It was loud, but I could still hear my bov and (maybe I was lucky but) even getting pulled over a few times in the car cops never said anything about the lack of exhaust.
