Both have big resonators further upstream, that's why they're quieter.

I like them on hatches but not coupes as much. Square rear end with a crooked can doesn't look quite right.

However, both of those ones ^^ look good enough to me. 99.9% sure I'll run the GT spec and sell the greddy to a local buddy who actually found it on clearance for me.

I'll end up making my own at some point. Probably a straight pipe first and some fat muffler if the straight pipe is too much.

Yeah the rear half of the catback is 3.75" lol.

Actually I bought it from some online drop-ship place for cheapz, but never got tracking. Tried to cancel my order yesterday (*after* I bought a discontinued Greddy RS exhaust on clearance from Greddy) and when I got home there was a Fedex door tag waiting for me.

Apexi:


greddy:



I will probably try both and see which one I like better.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Damn, that thing is huge. I need to up my exhaust game. Corksport is too small for the turbo.

Apexi Hybrid megaphone. It actually necks down to 2.75" in the muffler section, after being like 3.25". Didn't realize that til tuner pointed it out and I actually measured.

I'm probably going to keep it because I got it cheap enough and they never come up for sale. Just throw it in the shed to have.

New exhaust is the Apexi GT Spec. Giant shiny fart cannon But they do sound phenomenal and it's not super loud or anything.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I bought a fart cannon.

I have to go pick it up from Fedex. Loathe to install it but I know it's top 3 best sounding exhausts for SR and will hopefully unlock a few more whpzzz.

Congrats. Exciting times for sure.

I've been on the job hunt for almost 10 mo now. Waiting eagerly as well.

aidandj Its dead in here people, what's up? Nobody got any dick swinging to do?

Good news for me though is I had a day long interview yesterday at Tektronix and am only waiting on an offer letter, they said I have the job just need to get the offer approved. I'm pretty excited to finally have a big boy job. Let the house hunt begin.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

build thread.

- forthcoming. i have kept some nice photographic records from my purchase of the car, caging, motor swap, wiring fun, and so forth. I can also apply some dollar figures to each step for those interested.

-buy car. start driving it. realize that a miata is a perfect track car. buy new daily driver. this is certainly the most expensive part of the equation

-meeting great people and enjoying the fun of a new car adventure is priceless.

I'm planning on running the Lanny's alignment this year. You could say things are getting serious.

The butt dyno says the engine is stronk, like bull!

The gauge is showing 3psi when I romp on it and leave it there. It feels like it's pulling hard for only 3 psi. There is lust in my heart for alltheboost.
