Default Turbo exhaust

I have a Borla Dual that came off the last car I had. I thought of running it on my set up. However there's a guy over at CR.net interested in buying it, that money will fund a turbo exhaust.

The place that I have to do the exhaust does good work at a good price. So I thought Id get rid of what I have an go for Brain's set up https://www.miataturbo.net/build-threads-57/y8s-put-his-spec-all-over-me-i-liked-exhaust-build-48215/

Or go a bit nuts and have a straight pipe

yay or nay?

Get a summit 3" resonator with a magnaflow 3" muffler and have that bitch turn down and the diff. That's what I'm going to do at least if I can ever get ahold of my buddy with his welder

you cant hear it, that's the point

I'd say go with at LEAST a 5x8x18 muffler, or the big boy 5x11x22 like me and y8s. I'm still happy everytime I start the car and I dont set off alarms in my parking garage.

I can understand not being rich enough, but whoa, stupid? maybe instead of blowing your chump change on a CX Racing intercooler and ebay turbo etc etc you should've saved up and stop calling people who do save up, 'stupid'. Bet you won't call me stupid a year from now. I'd rather wait patiently with a slow Miata than put less-than-stellar parts in it.

Why spend anywhere close to $1000 on an exhaust when I can make my own, and when people who can't make their own (aka you) can get the same exhaust for way less from fanrictors on here (artech, turbotim.) my "ghetto setup" is working very well, don't be a jealous hater cause I can make the exact same stuff your spending 5k on for less than half the price.

Sorry no more off topic posts. I just put on a 18x6 magnaflow on instead of the straight pipes. And its sooooo much nicer. I know straight pipes are badass, but if you dd the car, it will get annoying, about three months and I couldn't stand it and I was always worried about getting pulled over for noise

I love how he keeps editing his post.
If you're baller enough to dump unnecessary cash on **** then be my guest.
Most around here tend to have better things to do with their money than waste 1k on exhaust
