Thank you. You have rated this product.

MX-5 Miata Stainless Steel Race Connecting Pipe. The Racing Beat Race Connecting Pipe is intended to replace the stock mid-pipe on the MX-5, which eliminates the integrated secondary catalytic converter and presilencer unit. Manufactured using 16-gauge, 2.375-inch O.D. stainless steel tubing, this connecting pipe features mandrel bends and OEM style connecting flanges.

Designed as a bolt-on component, this connecting pipe is easy to install and utilizes all existing mounting brackets and hangers.

Emissions Note: The stock mid-pipe does not feature an oxygen sensor after the catalytic converter. (The oxygen sensors in the MX-5 exhaust system are located before and after the primary catalytic converter, which is located under the stock exhaust manifold near the engine.) Therefore, installation of this race connecting pipe will not impact the OBD II system and installation of this race pipe will not cause a check engine light to occur. However, since a factory-placed catalytic converter is being removed by the install of this component, this race pipe is NOT considered emissions legal for street use.

Picture shows one piece but Racing Beat has recently changed this item to a two-piece item to make boxing/shipping easier.

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

2014 UPDATED version is now TWO-PIECE to reduce ship costs.

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.

Wanted to say thanks. The exhaust system fit perfectly, no drone at steady throttle, but a nice sound winding thru the gears. And it does sound a lot like my old Alfa. The Racing Beat lowering springs are just right. Appreciate the tech advice and the service.
