Thank you. You have rated this product.

The widely popular Cobalt brand is now expanded with the addition of this 3-Point Shock Tower Brace for the newest fourth generation "ND" MX-5 Miata. As soon as our 2016 car was delivered from Mazda Cobalt went to work, and after crucial design time and many testing hours they are proud to bring this bar to market.andnbsp;

Oval section stainless steel tubing is mated to beautifully crafted tower supports. The welds on this brace are a work of art! Aside from the best craftsmanship available, this brace actually works. Patterned after Le Mans style chassis bracing, this piece mounts in three places tying the front shocks to the firewall. This ensures rigidity that cannot be duplicated by lesser quality braces that simply mount from shock tower to shock tower. Comes complete with instructions and all necessary hardware. INSTALLATION NOTES: Uses the stock hardware. If your ND Miata did not come with factory shock tower brace note you need to add the Mazda Cowl Mounting Bracket for Shock Tower Brace, our item 60-1238ND. Install of 60-1238ND is a challenge for average DIY owner, typically a mechanic will install the 60-1238ND bracket. If your ND Miata already has a stock tower brace then the cowl bracket is factory installed and swapping out just the shock tower brace is very easy, just 14 ft/lbs please on the shock tower and firewall nuts.

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.

Last week I spoke to Brian, I ordered a aluminum Koyo 37mm radiator for 97 Miata. Brian, you run a first class show! It arrived the next day. It is a fully polished work of art. The welding is perfect. The fit is perfect, old radiator slipped right out, new one slipped right in. Perfect. I am very pleased. Thank you.
