Wats a header?

No serious, I'm not sure a turbo forum will give you much help in the exhaust department, we usually do other stuff with it. I usually don't say this, but we're not miata.net. And that's not a bash on them, they really will have more helpful advice on carb legal exhaust and shift *****.

also your car only needs one header not headers (unless you have a v8 swap) what about jackson racing?

Thanks josh I just got my nb and are just starting the forum scene as well thanks for the look out, and about jackson racing the thing I wanted to do was a s/c that's what I'd like to go with but recenlty I read of a lot of overheating trouble, and to be honest the bigest thing I've done on a car is an oil change, so I'm here to learn and make good ties.

Miataforumz.com would be the best place to ask I think.

might be worth picking up a used one for 1/2 the price and taking your chances

It's cool, but MiataForumz.com is a recently launched sight thats geared more towards general miata decision, including naturally aspirated mods, these N/A mods aren't common among MT.net users so I was thinking you might have a better chance of getting the answer your looking for there. Miata.net also does "Reviews" of miata parts/products. Most of the guys around here that are trying to keep cali legal are going with cali legal turbo kits or taking off the turbo kit when it comes time to get smog'd.
