Default HKS Carbon Ti Exhaust Muffler

Thoughts? Too rice?



I'm expecting to get flamed, just picked this brand-new unit up off a Supra buddy for $100, it retails for ~$400. Yes, it's real, captures that mad-tyte JDM look. I didn't buy it with the intention of putting it on my Miata, but the thought is now crossing my mind -- especially because it'll fit. Lemme know, brahs.

If you put a 2JZ in your miata then its not rice at all its supposed to be there. Without a 2JZ or a serious motor to back it up I would say it could go either way. All depends on how you make it look when you put it in. I would do it. My vote is not rice.

Is your miata even turbo'd? If it's a pretty stock car (engine), then yes, total rice.

It's got a 16g. I'm in the process of sorting everything so I've yet to update my signature.

Haha, I don't know. My EVO friend wants to buy it but then I still need a muffler. I figure I can tuck it as much as possible and just hope no one calls me out on it. I hope it doesn't sound too bad.

For a rice can it is most likely the best sounding one you will ever find. I would love to see it on your car but I am not sure how you will get it under there. If you do please post pics because I will most likely do the same in the not so far future.

Ehh, I think I'll just have it put on to hear how it sounds. If it's that bad, I'll cut it off and sell it for what I paid.

List it on ebay starting at $99 and whatever you get for it, spend on the miata wisely. Putting that on the miata just cause is stupid.

I think hose mufflers are going out of style soon anyways. Thank god.

A 3 inch mandrel bent straight pipe with a straight thru muffler is me. That will become popular. Damn.

I've got a knockoff on mine and it sounds fine. I have mine where just the tip sticks out, you really have to tuck the muffler body in there to get it to look right.

sell it at a profit and buy a muffler you know you will like.

It's got some mods and is "way" faster than the C6Z.

As far as the HKS muffler goes, I'm going to install it and see how it sounds. If it's shitty, I've already got an EVO buddy who wants to buy it.

Quality 3" canister mufflers sound ******* awesome on a turbo miata. Do it.
