hey so you have 2 miatas also? Ive got a black and a red one, but the red one is gettign all the money while the black one stays completely stock and gets things like napa's value line brake pads. Daily driver of course. Cars look good man, I dig the wide stance drifto look. For a bitchin sound, you could do what I did and get a glasspack muffler welded in ... with the turbo in, its quieter than expected for a glasspack, and under boost sounds like a jet engine spooling up good luck

Go through the thread "What's Your Setup" it has many people listing as having 3", then go look at their website or vbgarage. There are many.
Best way i've found pictures of them atleast, i also had another thread on this at one time, see if i can find it.

thats exactly what mine looks like. I have to mod it soon to rehang properly with my downpipe. the downpipe connects like 2 inch farther forward than my stock header and its thrown all my hangers off... and the bend around the axle...

I don't think you'll get a 6" pre-diff. Not unless you put it in place of the cat. Here's shot that'll give you a good idea of the space down there. I had to rotate my cat to get it to fit and the heat shield drags on speed bumps occasionally. That's a 4" resonator after the cat- you can see how close it comes to the ppf and driveline tunnel.
