Racing Beat offers a full 304-stainless steel catalytic converter replacement pipe for RX-8 racing applications (no converters). This mandrel-bent 3 OD racing pipe is a direct bolt-on replacement for the stock catalytic converter section. This pipe utilizes a genuine OEM rear mounting flange for a secure fit to the stock (or an aftermarket) exhaust system.

The race pipe is equipped with a sensor fitting for the oxygen sensor. (Note: Placement of the sensor in the pipe will cause the check engine light to be illuminated, but performance and engine systems will not be affected.) Each kit is supplied with all mounting hardware and detailed installation instructions.

*Legal only for racing vehicles, which may never be used upon a highway. SORRY, NOT FOR SALE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS.

Purchased the RS Max Power header and midpipe. THESE ARE TRUELY A WORK OF ART! CRAFTMANSHIP IS TOP NOTCH!! SITE PICS DO NOT DUE JUSTICE TO THESE ITEMS! I recommend Brian's site to ANYBODY with a Miata/MX 5. Brian and Co have taken a great automotive platform and elevated it to it's FULL POTENTIAL!

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.
