Sweet. Thanks. I'll have a few more pics to upload this evening.

mr.na, the price is $395 for a 3" DP, or $370 for a 2.5" one.

Abe,

I'm ready to go, just need your advice on the 2.5" vs 3"

I'm hoping I can get it before the end of March so I'll have it in time for Miatas @ Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

There really isn't a downside to going with a larger exhaust components on a turbo car.

(Disclaimer before the experts attack me: Yes I know that you CAN have too big of an exhaust on a turbocharged car, but for our cars, and this application, it isn't a big deal.)

Actually, his dilemma was whether he could mate a 3" DP to his current 2.5" FM cat/exhaust. The answer unfortunately is no.

You can mix & match sizes (though not recommended) using my DP/cat/exhaust because I use flanges with slotted bolt holes, but not with FM or any other flange that uses a specific bolt center to bolt center distance. Hope that makes sense. Visual aid:

Mine:
