I have that same drone with the 5x8x24 muffler. I'm going to try running a 4x14 as a resonator. Currently i just have the round installed, waiting on more v-band parts that should be here soon. I'll try posting some pics and vids.

That's OK, all of 18psi's photobucket pics from his old build threads don't work either!

lol yeah, I noticed that too. This is why we implemented the image stealer code, so all inline images are uploaded as attachements on the mt.net server that will never disappear.

I really like that, I am guessing it was around 2010 that it was implemented? The pre-2010 build threads aren't really that useful since most of them don't have pics, which makes me sad.

Around that, yeah. But it kills overly large images, and some animated gifs, which stinks.

So I finished up my ehxuast tonight. Running a hacked up Roadster sport 3 mid pipe with a 2.5x4x14 round magnaflow as a resonator back to a 2.5x5x8x24 oval magnaflow muffler. All mandrel bends. No noticable loss in power. This set up is no louder than stock. It just has a deeper tone and doesnt sound like a tin can. There is no drone at all. I loose the sound of the exhaust at any speed above 30 mph, and my gear whine is easily 5db higher than the exhast itself.

I can't believe that it's so quiet. Its a full 2.5 inch system on a NA Miata and I can roll a golfball from engine to tailpipe, and you can't tell if it's running at idle.

Win.

If the big maggy doesn't cut it for daily duty, I really suggest putting in a 14 inch round in there. I can't believe the difference.

my previous:



2 giant resonators, and a 5x8x20 iirc or something. sounded great. if this new setup I'm planning is like 20-30% quieter but sounds the same, I will be VERY happy
