The long-awaited rear Big Brake Kit to compliment our Wilwood front big brakes!

Dynapro 4-piston Radial caliper plus a dedicated MC4 parking brake assembly. High capacity braking from the Dynapro Radial calipers, BP-10 compound pads, and oversized 12.88" rotors are matched to the OE master cylinder output, ABS function, and vehicle bias requirements. Enhanced brake performance, increased durability, and high-tech style compliment big wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades on any car with increased brake requirements.

BRIAN'S NOTES: My daily driver with 2.5 liter conversion below showing off our front and rear Big Brakes! I don't race this car often, but when I do what a pleasure that we can drive late into turns at places like Laguna Seca Raceway and out-brake the much lighter Spec Miatas, and then do it with fade-free consistency lap after lap after lap. That confidence comes from the much greater thermal capacity and the more positive feel of the multi-piston calipers. Nice side benefit is that my daily ride quality with coilovers is noticeably improved thanks to lower unsprung weight compared to stock heavy cast iron calipers.

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.

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!
