Default 3" Enthuza for the FTMFW!!!

Installed my 3" Enthuza exhaust today. ******* wow. I went from a 2 1/4" Spec Miata exhaust with a resonator to the 3". My car spools faster, and makes a **** load more power. All that and it is barely any louder, and in fact sounds better. The tone is deeper and overall more pleasant.

Workmanship and fit is excellent. I highly recommend this product.

I was admiring mine the other day when I had it out to put Sav's diff in. Now that I've cut up the rear bumper it's on display more, so it's easier to see that my 3" "tip" isn't really a tip at all..

Lol i bought a truck magnaflow tip, only one that fits a 3" exhuast, il get a pic tm it looks pretty good, had to cut about 4-7" off the exhaust thought so i didnt look like a dick sticking out the back end.

I spent some more time in the car tonight. Car pulls like a freight train all the way till redline. Before it would fall flat and stop pulling hard around 6000rpm. I've bounce the damn thing off the rev limiter more times tonight than I have since owning the damn thing. I thought the weak top end was the gt2554r compared to my greddy kit. Not weak at all, now I have to really get serious about tuning!

I really wish I had done this as my first upgrade after installing my greddy kit.

seems like noone understands the importance of a free flowing exhaust when turbo or supercharged. good to hear it worked out for you. i upgraded from 3'' to 4'' on my galant vr4 and saw a huge difference. (high boost t3/t4)
on my miata, my friend that i bought it from had a 2.25'' crush bent exhaust and pos muffler. i went 3'' custom mandrel bent with a dynomax race muffler in place of the cat, and it felt like i turned the boost up 3-4psi !
