Customer Reviews: Packed Baffle Insert for RoadsterSport Miata Muffler 1990-2005
Exactly what I was looking for to cut the buzzy drone out right below 3k rpm on the full RS3 system. It was particularly bad with a hard top on, but now it's totally comfortable. Very surprised at the difference that this little thing made, although I must admit it doesn't sound quite as mean as it does without it. For longer drives though, the trade off is worth it.
It toned down the rs3 muffler. I think they should push the baffle more. Without it the muffler is loud (in a good way) . For a daily driver it definitely makes life easier. If I had known about this part I would have ordered it at the same time as the rs3.
I bought one of these glass-packed baffle inserts when I bought my RoadsterSport 3 cat-back exhaust. Installing this baffle instantly attenuates the exhaust noise and cockpit vibration/rattle levels to original equipment, production-car levels while retaining the RoadsterSports' distinct timbre. It's a quality piece if engineering that provides an additional exhaust note option for RoadsterSport 3 owners.
Exactly what was needed to mellow out the combo of the RS3 muffler and midpipe for day to day use. Highway resonance is almost entirely gone, down to a level that's barely perceptible. The tone is also very smooth yet you still get the pops and backfires so the character is still there. Only complaint is I wish the insert was a little further back and less visible from the rear but as it gets more mileage and covered with exhaust soot it should blend in better.
Just added the baffle to the Roadster Sport 3. Really like it. Did just what I had hoped. Still a bit louder than stock and keep the performance gains.
