Default header from the targa miata

I just want to say that if you guys produced that, I would definitely buy it. Talk about proven performance!

On their site they say that the header showed a 10hp and 12 ft-lb gain. I don't know if thats an improvement over stock or another performance header they were using, but either way its better proven numbers than anyone else can claim.

here's a pic for reference:


And yes, I like my mean, blasphemous N/A power. I might go turbo someday but that header is awesome.

well yeah I understand that most of their power adder stuff is centered around turbos, but they make an N/A catback and sell racing beat headers. Its just the only pulse linked header I've ever seen for a miata.

A sub $2k investment can net you 80-100 hp reliably. N/Asp just doesn't offer the same gains.

I'm not trying to argue which is better. Its simply ignorant though to say that there's no such thing as a performance N/A four-banger. Sheesh. don't be a dick.

Then with all your wisdom, build a N/A Miata and prove us all wrong.

I believe this was over stock. I'd love to see the dyno of how and where the power comes in.

I do agree with you and you know that this is miataturbo, so don't be surprised with the n/a vs. turbo, one is better than the other, argument.

Don't come on this forum and try and argue that point. You're lucky you aren't ridiculed for ITBs after every single post you make.

Take some advice: Quit while you're still here.
