Thank you. You have rated this product.

While the 16mm rear bars used to work well for a Spec Miata, a 16mm sway bar is oftentimes too big for those who are focused on track day events. Having a rear sway bar that is too thick - or "big" - will cause the rear end of the car to become too loose.

The 5x Racing 14mm rear bar is inspired by the 2004-2005 Mazdaspeed Miata which had a non-adjustable 14mm rear sway bar that Mazda deemed perfect to balance the higher powered turbo powerplant. However, 5x Racing adds the benefit of 3-way adjustability to further improve the design. Paired with a set of adjustable end-links, you can dial in your rear grip levels using the adjustment holes on the bar to suit your driving style, from safe to loose!

Key Features:

*Fits all models of 1990-2005 Mazda Miata's. Direct bolt on installation, no modifications required
*3-way adjustability via 3 different end-link positioning holes.
*Includes 2 Urethane sway bar bushings which fit within the stock Miata sway bar mounts
*Perfect size for an "all-around" Miata, which means it's a great for the street, auto-x course, and track. Adjustability allows fine tuning to accommodate different driving styles and front/rear balance

Sean's Notes: This is the sway bar to have for going fast at the track. The 14mm rear sway pairs perfectly with the very popular Racing Beat tubular front sway bar. Unlike the factory Mazdaspeed bar, the 5x Racing unit is 3 position adjustable to give you ability to fine tune the balance of your car. In terms of stiffness, the rear most position on the sway bar is slightly stiffer than stock, the center position is a match for the Mazdaspeed 14mm and the forward most position is slightly stiffer than the OEM Mazdaspeed unit.

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.

Thanks for making this work and providing great customer service! I had a full weekend with the install, but man was it worth it. The flywheel was such a good choice. I can't believe how much easier rev-matching down shifts are. The ACT is surprisingly easy to live with, even with the engagement point very low. I'll tackle that when it stops raining. Thanks again for making this happen this weekend.
