MORE product details for the - RoadsterSport SUPER-Q Stainless Steel Muffler NC GR-2011
Yes, simple BOLT ON that bolts to our midpipe, or the factory midpipe, or our Racing Beat midpipes. INCLUDES New Gasket and fresh Nuts and Bolts to make your install super easy. Weight is about 11kg with baffles removed, 12kg with baffles installed (stock muffler is over 13kg).
Finished in tips which INCLUDE our exclusive baffle cone inserts which are REMOVEABLE and allow you to set the sound to sporty...or quiet. Also available are optional packed baffles (see separate product description) with which you can quiet it down even more for those using a header or supercharger, or race midpipe, etc. This system is 10% to 15% louder than the stock MX5 muffler on an otherwise stock MX5 exhaust system....and only 25% over stock sound level when used with our complete 2.5 inch RoadsterSport header and 2.5 inch RoadsterSport midpipe. Baffles are retained by small hex bolts inserted from well under each tip.
Proudly made in the USA with a LIFETIME WARRANTY. Fits all 2005 and newer MX5's with manual or automatic transmission, soft top or retractable hardtop.
Installation of this MX5 exhaust is SUPER EASY...just two bolts! You don't even need to jack up the car, this installation can be done in your driveway! This MX5 exhaust is guaranteed for as long as you own your MX5.
BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: Everything we have learned about MX5 exhausts, all our best tricks, have gone into this RoadsterSport Super Q. It is the perfect FIRST MODIFICATION and still the best choice for anyone planning future upgrades such as a header change or supercharger. It is quiet when you cruise down the freeway but delivers a sporty deep burble when you push your foot harder on the gas. This MX5 Exhaust is the choice on my own soft top MX5 for driving around town...and my wife's PRHT MX5, and my strong recommendation for anybody wanting an exhaust with a super smooth burble, or any owner planning additional exhaust changes (header change or supercharger). This is also our top recommendation for owners of the automatic transmission and Power Retracting Hardtop.
Even more impressive than the peak horsepower gains is the broad torque gain from low to middle rpms, as shown in the dyno report from our forum 2012 project PRHT which you can read more about in our forum;
UPDATE: New Rolled Tip Design! Had many requests for a new thicker rolled tip. The problem with the rolled tips that all our competitors use is that they are very heavy, which helps partially explain the ugly fact our competitors don't want to admit...which is that most our competition is HEAVIER than the stock muffler. As a famous racer once said, weight is the enemy, and making a muffler that is heavier than stock and calling it a 'performance muffler' is not our style here. It took a big investment in new equipment to come up with a rolled tip that didn't add weight to our best performance design...but it was worth it. These new dual 3.5" OD outlet tips complete the look of the exhaust and provide a more aggressive and sporting appearance. Yes, still works with, and includes, our unique removeable baffles that put YOU in control over final sound levels.
Read full installation hints and notes in our forum Installation Instruction Section! The secret is LUBE your hangers well with dishsoap so you can get flanges aligned properly, and torque the supplied hardware to NO MORE THAN 25-30 ft/lbs (using more torque will actually result in LESS seal because you will pucker the flange out at the middle).
White 2013 below shows how standard length version fits another version of factory lower rear valance (if you want the tips longer that what you see here, then look at our version for Appearance Package).
