Miata headers are a great way to add power and responsiveness to any Miata. Our Miata headers come in two brands: Racing Beat and Jackson Racing. Each Miata header sold here includes the downstream gasket needed for installation (and the gasket for connection to the engine is re-useable stainless steel that does NOT need to be replaced to install a new Miata header). Racing Beat Miata headers feature polished 304 stainless steel four-into-one designs for maximum power. The Racing Beat Miata header is not CARB approved for those enthusiasts subject to California smog rules, does not fit with automatic transmissions, and does not fit with some exhaust side Miata superchargers. Our Jackson Racing Miata header features a 4-2-1 design that is ceramic coated heavy gauge steel and CARB approved, fits will all our supercharger choices, but does not fit with automatic transmissions. For additional information and a closer view of each Miata header, click on the choices below. For maximum Miata header flow, consider updating your downstream Miata catalytic converter if it is old, and your Miata exhaust if original.
As you can see, i placed another order for more parts for my car. I wanted you to know that I'm pleased at how quickly the wheels/tires came, and the radiator too. Great service and response time.

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.
