MORE product details for the - RoadsterSport SUPER-Q TWIN TIP Stainless Steel MX5 Exhaust To Suit ND Models
INCLUDES our exclusive baffle cone insert in the Tips which is REMOVEABLE and allows you to set the sound to sporty...or quiet. Also available is our optional packed baffle with which you can quiet it down even more. This system is 10% to 15% louder than the stock MX5 muffler on an otherwise stock MX5 exhaust system....and only 20% over stock sound level when used with our RoadsterSport midpipe. Works great with stock midpipe or RoadsterSport Midpipe. Customers planning a header are encouraged to order special Header version of our SuperQ that adds additional resonator on inlet side to best cope with the raspy sounds unleashed by a header swap. Baffles retained by small hex bolt inserted from well under each tip.
Proudly made in the USA with a LIFETIME WARRANTY. Fits all 2016 and newer MX5's with manual or automatic transmission, soft top or retractable hardtop. This MX5 exhaust is guaranteed for as long as you own your MX5.
BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: Not just two tips on one pipe from the muffler, true twin exit from the muffler means a bit more sound than single tip version of the SuperQ. And sound frequency balance is very different from each tip, the driver's side tip is essentially skipping final chamber in the muffler. That means you can have some fun mixing your own sound here using baffles in just one tip or the other. And, use of our exclusive baffles will have a big impact on sound reduction with this version, use of baffle in the driver's side tip will have the most reduction in sound level because that is the most direct route out. Result is many levels of sound, lots of control by the end user and ability to dial the result to your own preferences. My recommendation is remove the included baffles before install, my bet is that many never put them back because this muffler is quite mild on otherwise stock MX5.
BRIAN'S INSTALL NOTES:
Installation of this MX5 exhaust is SUPER EASY...just two 14mm bolts to loosen! When you open the big box you will find separate foam wrap on the exhaust tip, leave that foam around the tip during your install to protect the polished tips and your car's soft plastic in the exhaust cutout. Use gloves. Note the 'bolts' from the factory are actually studs with springs and nuts and the factory usually jams the nuts on so hard that unbolting it will bring the stud out too. If that does not happen then use a 13mm long socket to pull the stud, or use jam nut technique where both nuts are put on one stud against each other and then wrench used on the inner of the two to back out the stud. Then lube up the stock exhaust hangers with dish soap and yank stock muffler back and forth to work the soap into the rubber hangers and then the muffler will slide off those rubber hangers easily. Then hang the new muffler on the wet and soapy rubber hangers and torque 'bolts' with the springs back in place to 30ft/lbs. Now you can remove foam tip wrap. Option to remove the baffle too, to do so loosen bolt that holds it from under the exhaust tip and use it as handle to shake the baffle loose and then unscrew bolt the rest of the way and pull the baffle (pulling baffle raises the sound slightly). Note the muffler to midpipe joint is a ball socket connection for the first time on a MX5, it is designed to move a lot, so please do not add sealants that will gum up that dry ball socket joint.
