Thank you. You have rated this product.

RX-8 Nose Kit Racing Beat offers the Type I Nose kit for the Mazda RX-8 application. Designed in Japan under the direction of Racing Beat, this nose kit offers a dramatic new look to the RX-8. The design, modeling, and production molding of the body components for the RX-8 were developed and completed entirely in Japan. Once finished, the molds were sent to the US for production of the final components. The Type I Nose is a complete replacement nose unit and utilizes the stock mounting hardware and mounting points. The large horizontal grill openings allow adequate airflow for the oil coolers, air conditioning and water radiators.

Have you ever wondered why the upper two-thirds of the center mouth opening on your RX-8 is non-functional? Go ahead and look and you will notice that area behind the plastic mesh grill is actually closed with a "fake" grill.

The reason for this quite simple, if this area was open you would see a large "bumper bar" assembly (topped with a piece of Styrofoam for 5 MPH impact protection) located directly behind this opening. For this reason, many of the various aftermarket noses that feature a large central opening must hide this bar with some type of screen, cover, grill, etc..

Racing Beat designed the Type I nose to completely cover this bumper bar and eliminate the need for an additional insert or cover. If required, an optional Fog Light Relocation Kit is available to reposition the stock OEM driving lights to a location inside the central mouth opening. In addition, if you want to add the genuine Mazda OEM emblem to your new nose, these available at a very reasonable price. Produced exclusively in the United States using high-quality fiberglass materials, the Racing Beat nose kit is ready for final fitting and sanding prior to painting. Complete instructions are provided for removal of the stock nose, repositioning of the driving lights, recommended preparation steps prior to painting, and final installation.

Shipping Notice: The size of the nose kit requires that this component be shipped via truck freight. Freight charges will vary depending on your location, if you require an exact freight quote prior to shipping; we suggest you contact us for complete information. If you are considering the purchase of other fiberglass components, we recommend that you combine these components to minimize shipping costs.

NOTICE: the online store cannot accurately calculate truck shipping on these LARGE body parts and all online orders will be corrected after the order to the actual shipping amount. Ship cost usually a few hundred dollars to cross the country for this very LARGE item. Feel free to Email us for quote up front with your zip code.

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.
