Thank you. You have rated this product.

For Miata owners that prefer a more aggressive sounding and lighter weight exhaust system, the Sport Connecting Pipe can be used with our Power Pulse Muffler. Unlike the connecting pipe that that is intended to accompany the Power Pulse Muffler, the Sport Connecting Pipe is NOT equipped with a presilencer. Produced from 2.375" OD 304-stainless steel, this connecting pipe will offer years of performance driving.

Many people ask just how much louder the Sport Pipe is as compared to the Power Pulse Connecting Pipe. For comparison purposes, we undertook a series of decibel readings to record the sound level outputs.

Test Parameter

We used our 1990 RB Miata (1.6 liter) in this test. The car is equipped with a High Flow Intake, Racing Beat 4:1 Header, and Power Pulse muffler. The different connecting pipes were installed and the car was lowered to the ground prior to testing. Using a handheld decibel meter, a sound level measurement was taken at a 45 degree angle, approximately 18" away from the muffler tip, The measurements are as follows:


Power Pulse Pipe (with presilencer)
Idle: 74db
3000 RPM: 82 db
5000 RPM: 87 db

Sport Pipe (without presilencer)
Idle: 75db
3000 RPM: 89 db
5000 RPM: 92 db

(Legal limit for California is 95 db.)

Next, the Racing Beat sales staff drove the car to obtain subjective opinions on the sound quality of the Sport Pipe configured exhaust.

Evaluation: We were quite surprised with the sound output of this Sport Pipe! Quite frankly we were expecting to hear a harsh, buzzy tone without a presilencer, but this was not the case. Although the sound seemed to increase sharply at 3000 RPM, it was NOT harsh or buzzy but retained the deep, throaty tone that was similar to the resonated connecting pipe. Even though it was louder, we all agreed that the sound was "streetable" and still retained the sound quality of the Power Pulse system. Conclusion: A lighter weight alternative to the resonated connecting pipe, the Sport Pipe offers a modest sound level increase over the Power Pulse Pipe, but in our opinion this pipe is adequate for street or track use.

REVIEWS

I think that Brian Goodwin is the perfect example of what is good about the aftermarket industry. He is one of the few vendors that actually cares about his customers. He is the example that all companies should be trying to emulate when it comes to customer service. Not to mention his ingenuity and desire to improve on what is already a great car. I have never had a "bad" experience with Good-win-racing. Well, except for the constant temptation to SPEND MORE MONEY.

First I want to again thank you for working with me on this muffler. I have almost 100 miles on it now, and it has a nice mellow sound. a little Bass, but not too much. A little louder than stock, but not too loud. Plus it is nice inside the car with the top up. I am happy so far I bought this one.

I belong to a local Miata club, and am very active with it. When Spring comes I will tell everyone how much I like the muffler, and how great you are to work with. Maybe I can get some extra business for you.
