Default Does anyone offer a 3in exhaust

Looking for options for a pre-made 3in exhaust for my Miata as I'm having a hard time finding someone local (NY) that I trust with my car for a fair price. All I could find is Flyin Miata but not exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks

I only sell a full exhaust if you buy my setup. I have zero desire to build exhausts to fit other systems.

"fair" is very subjective

Recently bought a new system from Enthuza. 2.5" aluminized-pipe turbo system. Fit was fantastic and they now come with Magnaflow mufflers and tips instead of Borla. They seem to be continually improving their product. Based upon how mine fit and the clearances, it seems like their 3" would work well.

I ran a 3" enthuza with my begi s1 and then absurdflow setup for about 5 years. Fitment was decent, it hit the 2 part axles sometimes and then at the ppf with the flange. Worked fine other then those 2 issues.

I absolutely love my artech stuff. It was expensive though and took a long time. But not that it's all in I'm happy. I probably could have saved a bit of money and time here.


But I like it.

I've had older Enthuzas as well, and have experienced occasional hits in that tight axle/diff area you mentioned -- especially on track. But the latest system I bought seems improved in this area. Tracking the car last weekend resulted in absolutely no extraneous noise. It seems like there's been a subtle change there, but I'll be darned if I can see an obvious difference other than the muffler and tip change. Maybe I just took more time installing it this time around.

They've also beefed up their hangers (I've broken hangers on the older systems). Anyway, it's nice seeing the improvements.

I'll have to keep looking locally because the off the shelf exhaust's aren't really what I'm looking for. Probably going to purchase a Vibrant resonator and Burns muffler and have something fabbed.
