Default What's the stealthiest greddy install you've seen? And exhaust cut-out info...

So in the spirit of my friend's stealthy-turbo civic :





BTW, thats a stock miata heatshield. Has anyone tried that with a Greddy kit?




BOV in stock airbox ftw!!





More info here.

How stealthy can we get?

Also, is anyone using this? http://www.mccordcg.com/mpp/mpp.htm

My friend has it on his civic and look at the difference on the dyno at 10psi.



From 215 to 235hp!!20hp jump!! And you don't have to swap out exhaust pipes either. I'm thinking this is perfect for track days or V8-baiting. Thoughts?

That heatshield won't work with the greddy turbo kit for miatas seeing how it is a top mount kit so the turbo sticks right in your face no matter what.


He did do one hell of a job hiding everything though, especially putting the stock air pipe over the charge pipe like that. That cutout looks pretty nice, i would prefer the electronic version to the vacuum based versions i've seen other places.

He should go on "Pinks". Just don't lend your motorcycle to the host.

Ive seen this car in the past, it took me a little bit to even realize it.

on the outside my miata is pretty dang stealth, you cant see my FMIC unless your on your belly with a flash light and you still have to know its there.

I was thinking of getting an exhaust cut out instead of doing up a turbo exhaust...this way I could have the nice quite system when i want it. You can buy electric cut outs off ebay for $150 or you can get a wire cable version for $40 from JC whitney.....speed boats have been using these for years.
