Ya I know you did the swap to a 1.8.

Who are you lapping with? Next season I want to do a couple of lapping events, so far I did the road course school at Race City and it was a blast!

And I'm sure Corky was talking directly out of his ***

My buddy has a race prepped 93 civic coupe. I'll be racing with him at as many events as possible, both are cars were down this summer so no racing but his is almost finished up (just doing race scheme paint job) and mine I just am waiting on axles. He went to a race school in Seattle and they apparently have a decent track. We'll most likely being racing there and Race city ofcoarse.

Not arguing, just asking, why do you not like a turndown exhaust?

And yes, I agree, side exit exhuast would be mega cool!


For those of you wondering about exhaust weight - I saved 23 pounds on my exhaust.

Sound is awful and would look iffy on a miata. Yes I've seen the Red beasts cherry bomb exhaust, I also will never use a cherry bomb on anything I own, ever.

I noticed you said something about running an aluminum exhaust. I myself don't have much experience with it, but what I have read, several groups believe that it won't survive very long. Just an fyi. I would also recommend you just run as straight of a pipe as you can out the back. I would imagine your weight savings as opposed to your out the side would be minimal.

I won't use aluminized as welding it can be lethal.. and I wanna be around for awhile. If it were me, Stainless would be the way to go.

A smooth inside "cerry bomb" makes a great resonator. Thats all I use on turbo cars, and as long as there is at least 3 ft of the same diameter pipe after the muffler it will sound pretty good on a TURBO car. Non turbo will be too loud, and only sound good at high revs.
