I got the exhaust and headers installed this weekend. The headers were a bitch to get in, but other than that it went pretty smooth. The tip is touching a tow hook behind the bumper, that's the only thing left I have to take care of. It sounds pretty good, I haven't heard it under load. I'll get some audio tomorrow.
I own a 1992 MX-5 Miata that is under a car cover and a bank of snow in my driveway right now
I would attach a photo, but my posting rules say that I am unable to. I am assuming this is because I am a new user. Check it here:
Tires came in. They are Toyo Proxes T1-R tires in 195mm 55% and 14". I will run them on my stock Enkei hollow spokes (less than 10 lbs each, nice). Look pretty good and should hold up to some light track use. Got a smokin' deal on them on thetireshoppe.com, $69 each. God I love 14 inch wheels, tires are so damn cheap!
I haven't done much to my MX-5. It has the SE package with leather.
I'm not much for the bling factor, I just want the performance.
It has Bilstein R package shocks. Much stiffer than stock.
I put 205/40R 16 Federal SS595 rubber on 16" Core Racing Super Lites.
The Federals were a little cheaper than other brands (under $200.00 Canadian) but sure are sticky. The ride is choppy, but . . . oh . . . so . . . crisp
I'm all about the handling right now.
Let me know your subjective thoughts about the new header and exhaust. Maybe I'll have a summer project.
