I think 3 or 4 would perform the goal... I don't think 1 or 2 would provide the right amount of rigidity.

For that redesigned brace, I wonder if we could come up with a design that could be water jet cut? I'll see what I can work, up...manufacturing costs would be nil...I coul do a little welding if it were multiple components....

Something like this...I just quickly threw this together...but manufacturing is minimal if designed correctly. If all components are water jet cut, I have a friend that does it and as long as you have enough orders to offset the setup costs...it's a good deal.

UPDATE
Sorry guys I've been slow to update the thread. Were in the process of making the 2.25" exhausts first and then on to the 2.5" and 3". Even still the jigg will beable to make all of them so they won't fall far behind. I expect in a few weeks. Until then I don't want to take deposits on them. Were working as fast as possible outside of our normal jobs to make these so please understand.

PM's about wanting an exhaust 100% are fine. I will PM you ASAP when we get to having them made.

FITMENT
We're going to due our best to get the 2.5" and 3" exhaust to clear the factory braces (which should also clear the aftermarket as well). The rear passenger side tow hook WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVE AND CUT OFF! The entire thing doesn't have to be but several inches up will have too. I did this for my last exhaust and same issue with this one. It didn't bother me to do but some it may. Just wanted to let everyone know.

Surprised nobody has commented on the orange GT3 yet, I would love my Miata to share the same shop with one. Hey Dan, can I get an exact parts list for the 2.5in cat-back?

I think a tubular one would be the sht instead of flat plate but thats me.

Sorry for dissapearing guys! We've got the 2.25" exhaust in production as well as the 2.5" setups. The 3" exhaust will need a seporate jigg and be a little bit before we can make one and build the jigg.
