That I can honestly say I have no clue on. I know that the tracks around me that have sound requirements, they take the measurement measure offset (.I.e. from the drivers side down the back straight). So it in fact may be quite a but louder, however, having run quite a few different configurations, I can tell you it is one of the quietest, non raspy setup I've ever had.

I've never had a problem running on the street, nor my local tracks. Just thought I would share

I'm frankly astonished that you've already gone from "should I" to "here's a video" in such short time. Nice job man.

Intake is pretty sweet. How long is the tubing from the tb to the filter? According to sheniker for most miatas the tube should be between 26" and 32" but there is a noticeable gain if you're within an inch of the perfect number. He's dyno experimental lengths coincide with my math. And of course he wont mention the perfect length for his car, not that it matters because apparently he needs to re-tune the length between different iterations of the engine it thats sensitive. Try to get some insulation on that box. My ghetto but sealed and insulated box will show the same internal temps as ambient

That intake turned out way better than I thought. Nice piece. When is the 4.3 going in?

$105 for the intake, filter, and bracket.

John is building the 4.10 Cusco pumpkin next week. It has a 4.30 on it now but that will rev way too high at 80mph on the highway. I'd pay good money for a 6 speed with a gigantic 6th gear.

If you don't have the aluminum MS ball swivel shifter thing, you are missing out, big time. All this is the best shifting trans I've ever driven.
