Default OBX Dual Exhaust? Good for turbo?

The 2 3/8 inch OBX Dual Exhuast system I have been looking at for my 1997 Mazda Miata with possible T2560r or GT2850RS install is only 320 dollars shipped? What do you guys think about it? The price is good, but will the exhaust diameter be sufficient?

well how large is the pipe before it splits? if it were say 3 then went to 2 -3/8" pipes i wouldn't see the harm in that , but if it is 2-3/8" all the way a 2.5 or 3 would be better

make certain of that. my borla dual exhaust was 2.25" to the muffler, where it split to (2) 2.0" exits...it was highly restrictive.

nothing OBX makes is good for a turbo miata, lol

**** all these fancy exhausts, just get something that works man
3" all the way, you'll thank yourself later for doing so, rather pay a few $$ more now and do it right, then later doing it again, you'll waste money

I don't think there's anything OBX makes I'd put on my car.

Check enthuza for the good ****.
