Thank you. You have rated this product.

The rain rail is a plastic "rain gutter" (the cross section is shaped like the letter "U") that pop-rivets to the convertible top and every Miata has one. It is located at the base of the top below the window (you can't see it until you remove the top) and funnels the water that runs down between the top and the body of the car to drainage holes.

If this piece is cracked or brittle, serious water damage can occur. If you are planning to do a top installation yourself purchase any top WITH the rain rail your installation will go much smoother. If installation is to be done by a professional you can save money by using your existing rain rail if it is in good shape. The savings by not purchasing a rain rail needs to be weighed against the cost of a longer install time.

REVIEWS

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
