Thumbs up Decided to put Exhaust on the miata today!

Its been a long time coming but i finally decided to put exhaust on her! Its a OBX header with RB midpipe and a ebay muffler with silencer out. I think it sounds awesome! Quiet...yet low roar when WOT.

Heres the link: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=wEsTibTxoII

Biloxi? Sweet, I'm from Pascagoula. Hey, what size primaries are the OBX header? Did you have any fitment issues with it? What size collector does it have? You buy it on eBay? If your looking to put direct port on it my kit will be for sale this summer.

I think it's for a remote mount turbo, that's the only explanation I can think of.

why waste the money on a header and such now if ur going turbo in a couple months and wont be using it? i started buying stuff too til i realized it was pointless since the turbo will just require different stuff.
