You need to reroute if you go hard. You will toast your 4th cylinder. Another way to improve cooling and something you can use no matter what is an under tray ( if you dont already have one). Also prevents **** from getting up in your biznesss.

I've noticed a significant difference at cruise with and without it.

I don't have any miata and cat pics but here's one of most of my miata and fox.




I'm looking into the begi coolant reroute kit but I keep seeing all these stories and comments about how the cooling is "too effective" and people complaining about it taking 20 minutes to warm up. My car is mainly a DD and I've never had trouble with it overheating when I'm running on the street, just at autocross. I live in florida so maybe it wouldn't be as much of a problem as it is for some people but I'm not trying to drive around with a cold engine, just not autocross with the gauge sitting 3/4 to 4/5 of the way to hot.

Has the kit been improved since the stories I'm reading?

Welcome to the forum.

I'm using an MS1 and am surprised at the hostility. Where's the love for the cheapskates that this forum used to have? Hell, Brain built the damn thing and it still works. Where's the pride for that?

Get the regular BEGI reroute and not the racer one and you'll be fine.

us cheap people just buy the spacer and make the rest ourselves. there are like 100 re-route threads.

Long story Short.

Buy begi spacer. Go pick and pull a thermostat off a kia sephia (don't remember the years but you can research that). snag a chevy burban radiator hose



Begi kit is like $250. If you kinda diy it you can do it for like $93 for machiend piece + $22 for gm hose + $5 thermostat = like 110+ maybe a couple clamps or whatever other diy spin you put on it. You can save at least $100.

Get the hyper re-route and call it a day.

Do it once, do it right.
