You have to be a speed perks member, but yes the code should work perfectly for the majority of items as long as your order is over $100. TRT30 is 30% off your online order if over $100, depending on how much you are spending it can be cheaper to go with that code. But yeah I use those codes all the time to order online from Advance and then pick up in store half and hour later.

Speedperks reg seems to be broken right now. I can't verify. Get a stupid warning message. And no report a problem button.

I'm rocking my 12576. Same body, 2.5". Best thing I ever bought for my car.

In terms of midpipes, im leaning towards going with the Enthuza 3" because it's nothing special. And I don't need anything special. Thoughts?

Also, how quiet is this huge *** muffler? Like stock quiet? In looking for a nice deep tone but not obnoxiously loud. I want "classy".

Have you even searched the threads where we discussed this to death?

It sounds really good. You want it. Your car wants it. Your mom wants it. Everyone wants it.

I have the MTnet approved muffler on my car, completely catless and it's QUIET on the outside. Inside is still horrifically loud though. SO LOUD. But that's my own fault because I have urethane hangers because I didn't want exhaust to bang around everywhere.

I have the MT.net approved muffler as well. Based on what you describe as your goals it's what you want. Deep and bass-ey but otherwise completely unassuming. I have had my car idling and you hear the engine more than the exhaust. My FANS are louder than my exhaust.

Not my carr:

Just as an FYI, the FM exhaust is not loud at all. My car has no problems meeting 90 db sound days at Laguna, and multiple people have commented that it's one of the quieter cars during Miatas@MRLS.

It's not cheap, but it's beautifully made and sounds good. It may not bolt up to the TSE downpipe, though.

I found rubber hangers with hose clamps around them holds it well and dampens a bit more vibration.

Call up Enthuza and see if he'll build you a 3" system with a big dog Magnaflow. I'm surprised he does not have a "If you came from Miataturbo, click here for 3" winning" button on his site yet TBH. Unless you send the manifold, turbo and downpipe to whomever is doing your exhaust then prepare to do a little bit of fab work to get them to mate up.

This is hard to quantify without hearing it in person. What you call "classy" I might call a war crime. I was the obnoxious metallic orange NB if you have video of me being slow, you might have some exhaust clips somewhere.

Stock rubber hangers, stainless worm drive clamps and zip ties over here. Clamps keep the hangers from sagging and zip ties keep me from having the clamps end up as track debris. We added one non stock hanger location under my car but that's it, its buried somewhere in my build thread.

I once tried rubber with worm gear clamps. One would fall off the hanger all the time from side ways wobble, but I didn't try zipties. Another just broke where the worm gear was clamped, likely to cyclic loading.

I'll try it again and maybe just keep one strategic placed urethane on the midpipe

What's the rationale for putting hose clamps on the hangers? I just have the stock hangers on mine and it's fine?

I wonder if I had the cheap *** tin foil worm gear clamps. I'll invest in some stainless ones and try again. with zip ties (or those fancy metal heat wrap ties I have laying around)

I just used beefy plastic zip ties and they've held up fine, but I'm sure the stainless zip ties would work.

Andrew said that the Enthuza did not fit well on his car. So this has made me a little weary.

I only have 1 clip of me passing you and you can't hear squat over the wind noise and the turbo. Just send me a video from your car
