Never thought you meant that by any means man no worries. Plus the sound of a good intake trumps exhaust note any day. Except for the loss in MPG.

May I ask what intake? havent seen very many.

FocusBoy - I'm having a difficult time locating a Borla 440477. Do ou think a Magnaflow 12268 would work? I don't want to increase the exhaust sound but like thelooks of duals.

Finally put a single outlet borla on. A bit disappointed in the sound as it is too quite for me. On the other hand, I've never had an exhaust on any of my cars turbo or not that I thought was loud enough. In any case, just as I suspected, the first muffler does most of the muffling. The axle-back looks pretty stock and sounds like the car should have sounded like from the factory. Almost silent at idle and some bark when accelerating.
I guess, that's fine. This is not the type of car someone my age would want to be screaming. Did loose some mpg. I would say at least 1mpg, but that may be due to the cooler weather we've been having. Or may be the stock system does provide additional back pressure for better fuel economy at the expense of some power. If that is the case, a full catback would see some gains. I am leaving it as a possibility.

Nice job on the single tip. It looks better than stock for sure. I can't beleive this thread is up to 14 pages.

Well just to follow up. The Borla exhaust is working great and the tone has not changed in the last 2k miles. I am very happy I chose the Borla muffler. Too bad they don't make a bolt on system. I am sure it would sell well.

Any one look into a 3rd gen Miata muffler. They are all stainless and have nice tips, and the inlet is on the proper side. Miata guys are allways swapping out these for aftermarket systems. You should be able to pickup a takeoff real cheap.
