  • Ported intake manifold
  • 85mm throttle body
  • Vararam intake
  • TPIS Long tubes
  • X-pipe
  • Soon-to-be-removed high-flow cats
  • Stock exhaust (I've retained it for weight savings, it's Ti and lighter than most aftermarket options + it's loud as **** as is)
  • MGW Shifter (it's shitty, I hate it)
  • Radar detector, jammers, etc. Waiting on the smoke screen and machine gun turrets (j/k)
  • Lame C6Z reproduction wheels, to be shitcanned as soon as I can line up four OEM C5Z rears.

I'm probably forgetting a few things, it made 420 rwhp on a Mustang dyno with its current, conservative tune. It's a pain in the *** to drive compared to the C6Z, but it actually hooks sometimes -- which is nice.

Very nice. So are you from Miata or Gainesville? I'm in the Jacksonville area and am going to be down at gainesville raceway next week with some local 240 guys. Who tuned your car? My last car was a cammed 04 GTO and god do I miss that car but after the fire I told myself I was done with car payments for a while

As far as I'm concerned that muffler will look obnoxious. Regardless put it on post pics and vids! lol

I'm from Miami, going to school in Gainesville. I might be at the next GRRC event.

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.
Just sell the damn thing for profit and buy a magnaflow. Those piece of **** canisters don't sound good on anything..

I'm all about the LSx series motors especially when they're in the Z's... but how is a 420rwhp C5Z 'way faster' than a stock C6Z? I can see your C5Z probably keeping up pretty well with a C6Z but anything more sounds like a stretch..

420rwhp/3115lbs vs ~420-460rwhp/3180lbs.

I did some googling and find C6Z's stock dyno anywhere from 420rwhp to 460rwhp bone stock.

Don't mean to crap on your thread and I suspect as I type this that might've been sarcasm. Either way, Nice car(s.) There were two of them in that garage?

I was being facetious.

And yes, two of them reside in the garage.

I wouldn't go that far, mine sounds decent and on cars like supras, evo's, wrxs...they really sound pretty good. It's really the na cars that ruin them.

Actually he will send you a cashiers check for 1000, you put it in your bank, and he will even let you keep an extra 50 for your troubles, only send back 800.

I like the hks a lot. I think that it will just look too big on a miata but thats just me. I would say just go str8 pipe with a inline muffler
