Enthuza budget speeder for the m2

[4/10/2005] Reviewed by: tracy galus - pageplant@comcast.net

Applicable to: '99 + 1.8 liter

this is the budget speeder exhaust from enthuza for the m2 miata. got it from chad from his website. i had him weld on the 3 inch tip and no additional cost but you could also get the 2.5 inch tip.

very easy straightforward installation. remember to soak the bolts overnight because they can be a little rusty especially if you live in midwest or east. nothing could have been easier to install. it took me all of ten minutes. looks great and has a mirror-like polish.

first off...the sound is amazing. right out of the box you hear that deep bassy sound. this is not a tinny sound you get from the ricers. over 500 miles or so it gets deeper. not louder but deeper. very cool. chad was great to work with. at enthuza they build to order so you are not getting some product just laying in some warehouse. the sound is louder than stock but not obnoxious. i got the 3 inch tip and i had no problems with clearance on the rear bumper. nice price...nice product...nice people to deal with. you cant go wrong with enthuza.

Enthuza M1 Budget Racer w/ 12" resonator

[11/18/2005] Reviewed by: Paul Nguyen - cliqwe@msn.com

Applicable to: '90 - '97 1.8 liter

Enthuza M1 Budget Racer Aluminum w/ 12" resonator instead of the standard 18". Resonator and tip are Silverline (Ansa series) and the muffler is Borla.

Ive had the exhaust on my car for a few weeks now, and 0o0o0oh man...this thing is awesome. Time from ordered to arrival was about 14 days as described on site. Did the routine, WD40 for a couple hours, stock exhaust came right off and mounted Enthuza in about 45 min. Very easy to install and it lined up perfectly in the back first try. A couple downers was that it arrived in the mail and the flange from the midpipe was beginning to poke out of the box and also I had issues with the midpipe contacting the sub frame brace. HOWEVER, nothing was damaged upon inspection when I opened the box, very durable product. As far as the contacting, a metal strap and some exhaust wrap around the area that was hitting, and voila! problem fixed. Power is somewhat subjective although Im sure Ive obtained more hp in the high RPMs... it sounds like im going faster. Speaking of which, on to the reason I got the exhaust...the sound. It is absolutely perfect! When first installed it was ! very nice, right off the bat. Then it started to get louder and deeper. I wasnt sure if this was going to be too loud as I daily commute to college and need my hearing to listen to lectures. But since then it has somewhat mellowed out, and the truth is, I would rather have it a little bit louder than a little bit softer/wimpier/wussier. Also, Jason was a great guy to deal with and helped me out alot as far as organizing a group buy. I told him I wanted my car to sound mean, and now my car sounds like a snarling fire breathing dragon...but in the best way possible.

Overall, the exhaust got here on time, sounds incredible, and is extremely affordabe (good for college students, like myself). I am one satisfied customer.

Enthuza M1 Budget Racer - 2.25" alumized piping with 15" resonator, Silverline (ANSA) muffler, 3" slash cut tip

First, Chad is no longer running Enthuza. It is now run by Jason Douglas. That said, my experience was not positive. The box arrived damaged. Actually... It was demolished. In my opinion, it was due to poor packing rather than poor handling... The mid-pipe was hanging out, the exhaust clamp was missing, the tip was bent... Also, the muffler -> tip pipe wasn't cleaned up. There was still slag in the pipes! Jason was willing to send out a return tag and build another one, but I opted to fix up it myself rather than wait another week...

Also, the muffler was not a BORLA like it shows on the website! It is a smaller, cheaper SILVERLINE (made by ANSA) muffler. Even though the picture on the website has BORLA stamped into the muffler and the picture has a BORLA logo in the upper right, he doesn't use BORLA. Figure that one out. Sounds downright dishonest to me. But anyway...

The install was kind of a pain. The openings in the flanges were too big for the stock nuts. The nuts were sinking into the bolt holes! So I had to use washers... After that everything bolted up okay, but when it was all tightened down, the tip hung WAY too far to the right. I had to use a hose clamp to hold one of the hangers to the sub frame brace to get it to line up.

The sound... It's LOUD. I have a 12" long cat, so I'm sure that doesn't help any. It has a really deep boomy idle, and kind of a beefy raspy tone under acceleration. It's loud, but in a good way... It's the kind of exhaust where you'll downshift in a tunnel and come out the other side smiling ear to ear. :-)
Would I do it again? Probably not. For nearly $400 shipped I expected a better quality product. Now that it's on, I'm reasonably happy with it, but the experience overall was negative. I'd probably spend the extra $50 and get a RoadsterSport or something.

Cat back exhaust system, with Borla muffler.

I bought this system onebay from a guy that was transforming his car to a spec racer. I wanted something that would have a little rumble to it, so I was anticipating a louder tone. It has a nice throaty sound to it above about 4,000 rpm's. it also cam with a "grapefruit shooter" chrome exhaust tip. I'm having a tough time keeping that from rattling, but otherwise I love the exhaust. It makes those top down drives all that much more fun, who cares about the radio!

If you listen to all the tips the stock exhaust was actually not hard to remove. Just make sure and WD-40 the bolts connecting to the cat the night before. As for the exaust is sounds awsome!

This is a 2.5" mandrel bend full cat back from Enthuza. It is the Budget Turbo Cat back, which means it is not stainless steel. I think it is mild steel with aluminum coating or aluminize steel

I have a turbocharged Miata. Car's top end increased by a lot with the new cat back. Installation was very straight forward. The mandrel bends on there is very nice while the welds look kind of ugly. I got it with the dynomax muffler. The tone is slightly deeper than stock. I drove it across country, it never really got as loud as the Racing Beat I had on my RX-7. I could set of sensitive alarm with this exhaust from time to time driving around in 1st slowly. It's a great $300 I spent. I dont regret it one bit.

Watch for the donut hangers, they tend to slide. Mine slide a little bit, so the muffler tip sat all crooked and burnt my bumper.

Lightweight performance exhaust from Enthuzacar.

I just installed this product from Chad of Enthuzacar. I have a spanking new MSM that is nearly silent. I love the car but it definitely lacked tonal attitude.

With the car on ramps it took me 45 minutes to remove the huge stock unit and replace it with this really lightweight unit (7 1/2 pounds). Heavy gauge aluminum piping 1/4" larger than stock with what looks more like a high polish stainless resonator (Silverline) than a muffler. 2 1/2" rolled tip , also highly polished, that looks identical to stock without the MS engaving. The welds on the "muffler" were not very cosmetic, but who cares? They're tight and ya' can't see 'em. It sounds great, much like the tone of my M1 Racer with resonator setup preceeded by a Brosal header on my previous NA '95. It is not too loud or attention getting, very low tone that will get even mellower with a little carbon build-up. No Rice Boy intonations or looks here, just a great classic sports car sound and burble that is pleasent at all speeds. Seems to put a couple more ponies on the asphalt, as well. I highly recommend the XR for the MSM and Enthuzacar for great products and service.

Enthuza M2 XR Lightweight Exhaust

[10/11/2003] Reviewed by: Eric Lander - eric@musata-motorsports.com

Applicable to: '99 + 1.8 liter

(From Manufacturer) The XR exhaust is designed for the weekend racer. This exhaust weighs in at a mere 7.5 lbs (stock system is 24 lbs.) while delivering the same horsepower gains as the Enthuza M2 Speeder Exhaust. This exhaust is fairly loud but retains that deep note. Due to the simple bolt on installation, swap the XR in when you head to the races.

After a very fast turnaround time, Chad Sanders of Enthuza did an excellent job in packaging this product. It looked to be protected in order for you to install the system without damaging any parts of it on your own. Once installed, you simple remove the protective coverings, and you're set! In less than 30 minutes, I had removed the OEM exhaust off of my 2003 Miata, and installed the XR exhaust on my own. Installation is beyond simple.

The car pulls much more freely than it had previously, and I consistently spin the tires a bit shifting into second gear with higher RPM shifts. Since the car has less than 5,000 miles on it -- I know it's not bad tires causing that. I didn't dyno the care before, or after, so all gains are simply opinion based on driving it. The car is much louder now than it had been, and louder than my old setup on my older car ('95 Miata with a Borla). Thankfully, the drone has not been heard yet and the overall sound of the car during acceleration is much more strong than my old car. This car now sounds as if it has much more torque than it had, as if it were a larger engine. My older car's setup sounded too much like a "whine", whereas this is much more appreciated. Would I buy this exhaust system again? Absolutely. Chad and the crew at Enthuza were wonderful and patient and the car is much more fun to drive.

"Designed for the weekend racer," according to Enthuza's Web site (www.enthuzacar.com), this exhaust weighs a mere 9 pounds. It has a straight-through, Ansa resonator (4" X 12") made of polished stainless steel. Aluminized pipes in and out are 2.25" in diameter with mandrel bends. Chrome exhaust tip is optional. Enthuza claims a power increase of "almost six horses" and backs it up with a dyno graph.

The system was surprisingly easy to install, even for me; I have almost zero mechanical ability. The two bolt holes lined up perfectly, as did the three hangers.

I know you want to know what it sounds like. But, first, I must say that every aspect of the system is beautifully crafted. And Chad Sanders at Enthuza is very helpful and gives good advice. OK, now, here's what it sounds like: At idle, it emits a low, somewhat ominous grumble. Then, as you pick up speed, the tone rises to an aggressive alto voice reminescent of an old Lotus Europa or Austin-Healey. At crusing speed, the tone is almost invigorating and not at all too loud for my taste. But by the time you reach red line, you will sound like a weekend racer -- which is very cool indeed.

Enthuza NA Racer cat back exhaust

[6/20/2008] Reviewed by: Jon Watkins - jonwatkins@sc.rr.com

Applicable to: '90 - '97 1.8 liter

I decided to replace the oem exhaust on my 96 with 65k miles in April. I driver the car appx. 240 miles per week. It is my daily driver with auto x a couple times a month and several DE's each year. After a bunch of research I decided on the Enthuza NA Racer with the standard tip and a new Magnaflow cat. Got the cat online for $82 (Magnaflow part number 23696). I had emailed Jason several times about the sound level, listened to every sound clip I could find and read every review before making my decision. About 2 weeks after I placed the order the box showed up. The weld quality was very good and it took about 1 hour to get the old exhaust off and the new one installed. I was a little disapointed with the tip alignment after the install as it is about 1 inch too far to the passenger side and rested on the bumper cover (which it melted). Jason told me the sound would be about 50% lounder than my oem but it was actually aout 400% louder with the top up or hardop on (which is the way I drive 70% of the time). The first week it was so loud with the top up that it was uncomfortable on my drive to work, particuarly when accelerating. Also it started a weird harmonic between 2 - 4k rpm that caused a really loud metalic buzzing somewhere inside the dash. I knew from my research that it took about 500 miles for the Enthuza system to heat cycle/carbon up and quiet down. With the top down the sound was awesome and was just what I wanted!! It was almost like driving two different cars. After about 400 miles it had not gotten any quieter with the top up so I started researching how to get some of the sound out of the car http://forum.miata.net/vb/showthrea...ghlight=dynamat and did the following: 1. Stuffed 2" fiberglass batting from Lowe's into the tunnels on each side of the car and around the fuel tank; 2. Added two layers of Damplifier Pro on the bottom of the trunk and one layer on the entire parcel shelf and bulkhead; 3. Placed swimming pool noodles inside the rear bumper cover and under the muffler heat shield; 4. Sprayed two thick layers of rubberized undercoating on the underside of the trunk. This helped but it was still way to loud to live with on a daily basis. I emailed Jason and told him I might have to return the system but was going to give it a few more miles to see what happened. He quickly replied and said that was ok and even gave me the option of building a different system. Great customer service! After appx. 900 miles of use the system has gotten quieter and the harmonic vibration has disapeared (although I don't think I could live with it on a daily basis if I hadn't done the soundproofing). I absolutely love the exhaust tone when the top is down. It has a nice deep growl at lower rpm's and really sings above 5k rpm. The engine also seems to rev more freely which is probably the result of less backpressure. If I had it to do over again would I still purchase this exhaust...absolutely.

Catback exhaust

I've had the product installed in my car for about 1 year.

Overall, I am very happy with this product. Installation is very straighforward, and the instructions clearly explain the steps involved during installation. Installing the new exhaust was simple, although the band clamp used to fasten the mid pipe to the muffler requires a bit of brute force and a bit of patience. Otherwise, the installation was straighforward. Once installed, the exhaust emits a nice, growly sound without being tinny. It does resonate a bit inside the car when driving with the hardtop, but not enough for it to be uncomfortable. At idle, the exhaust is very quiet. At speed, the sounds is just beautiful without being annoying (to the driver, at least.) Overall, I am very pleased with this product. I consider it a very good value. After one year, it still brings smiles to my face. I highly recommend this product.

Cat back exhaust for NA Miatas, stainless steel construction, 12'' resonator, Borla muffler.

I was unsure of whether or not to order the exhaust with a resonator, so Jason told me he could put a shorter than usual resonator on to not have it "too quiet" for my tastes, but also not get me another exhaust ticket from the police. He told me that it would me completed the next tuesday. I recieved an email the Sunday prior to, saying that he finished it and would ship out on monday. The craftsmanship is excellent. Co-workers at the shop I work at couldnt believe I spend $400 on a cat back, but it is worth it in my opinion. For the first week or so, the exhaust sounded slightly raspy, which had my concern, but it went away once the internals went through a few heat cycles and got carbon coated (at least thats why I think it changed), as stated on the website. The sound is very mellow now, sounds great above 4k.

I highly reccomend this exhaust, and Enthuza Car in general. They have budget models of their stainless steel exhausts in aluminized steel, so they can fit anyones price range. Jason is easy to work with when figuring out what you want, and fast to assemble and ship.

2.25" - 3" tip varied SS piping (non-resonated) w/ SS Borla muffler.

Installation of this exhaust was very simple. I had already installed a test pipe with SS bolts and nuts so I did not have to deal with any tough/rusted cat bolts.

The system utilizes the same slide-in piping instead of flanged where the mid-pipe meets the muffler part. I slid the muffler into the hangers and secured it in place first before the mid-pipe. I then secured the mid-pipe in place and bolted it to the cat with a new gasket (highly recommended) and connected the two and secured them with the included hardware. After that, quick shower and test drive! This seems to have such a deep growl right off the bat, and as the RPM climbs you can definitely hear it singing and it does turn heads! Slight SOTP power noticed, but all in all a lot more free flowing. After the first 1000 miles chad said it will also mellow out and become deeper, which is great. And I will back everyone here, chad has the best customer service I have ever experienced to date. Materials were late because of memorial day, and I ordered aluminized. So because of the delay, he made the exhaust in SS for no extra charge! Would buy again in a heartbeat!

Chas from Enthusacar places specials on eBay every once in a while. I couldn't pass up the price, $240 including the shipping. It took 2 weeks to ship since he makes them on a custom basis. Install time was about one hour, as I was going very slow and being careful so as to NOT break off the catalyic bolts.

For the first few hundred miles, the system was a little throatier / louder then I was looking for, expecially with the top up. After that, it mellowed out very nicely. On the expressway it purrs ever so softly, but when you punch the gas it roars to life. The best way I describe the sound is similar to a Triumph Spitfire. Note: the quality of the welds puts the stock unit to shame. Also note: this unit is lighter then the stock unit, and I feel a smoother power curve at the top end.

No question; a well-made, beautiful unit as others have described. Got the M1 resonated model for around $385; think they're going for $399 now, although there's a new Budget version that uses aluminized piping. This is all stainless steel.

Fit perfectly without any difficulty. I bought mine around October 2001 and drove on it for about a year before I decided to swap it out for something quieter. Loved the burble, the low tone, and the sound with the top down, BUT...top up was intolerable any time I had any throttle on, or just cruising 2500-4000 RPM. This was despite heavy use of Dynamat in trunk/lid and behind seats, which helped, but couldn't eliminate the throb that just comes up behind the seat and goes right through your head. This is a totally separate sound from the outside exhaust note, by the way, which is a good sound itself.

If you like LOUD, and especially live where the top is down all the time, you will love this exhaust. In fact, I'll sell you mine for cheap. Personally, I switched over to the Brospeed/Bosal unit now, which is pleasant at cruise and gutsy on-throttle, and eliminates stock "tinny" midrange resonance.

At first, it was loud ... real loud, but I was ready for that. Many told me that I would be setting off car alarms everywhere, that didn't quite happy. After about 300 miles on the system, I am quite pleased. The sound has improved, deep as when I first installed it, just not as raspy and not as overly loud. Much louder than my old JR Sport Exhaust, it seems to have great personality to it as well. Kinda sounds like Tibetan Monks chanting, lots of different sounds at the same time ... I know it sounds weird, the only way I can describe it. Has the low and the raspy tones at the same time. Good amount of burble, more the the JR, but not too much to be annoying. Performance wise, I really can't tell too much of a diffence between this and the JR, but performance is definitely better than stock. I also installed a FM High Flow Cat at the same time.

Only one complaint, the tip is not polished stainless steel so over the past few weeks it has turned a rusty color in some places. I'm still trying to figure out what to do about this. I purchased Simichrome and will try this soon. Either that or have it chromed, or have someone cut the tip and weld a rolled tip on in place of it. Any ideas, feel free to email me.

Awesome looking exhaust! I wanted an exhaust that didn't have the normal aftermarket look(huge chrome tip) This one has bronze looking tip that matches my black and tan car perfect! It is pretty loud with the top up especially around 3200 rpm. Not so easy to have a normal conversation with the passenger. When the top is down it is the best sounding exhaust I have heard. The deep sound of the exhaust and the high pitch sound of my engine are a perfect combo! Performance gains were what I expected, you can feel the difference but not a huge one.

This exhaust like everyone has said is an awesome piece of work. when i got it i did not install it for a week because i didnt want to get it dirty =) I got the polished tip which i think makes the whole system really stand out.

the guys down at enthuza are the nicest people i have ever dealt with, real southern hospitality! the system came in great packaging and looked awesome! the install was a little difficult though because there is not a bolt on piece from the connecting pipe to the muffler. It just slides in and is clamped down by a nifty little hose clamp thingy. I didnt really like that design. the tip sits high on the bumper...about 1/4 inch from the top of the cut out and i cant seem to jerry rigg it down? the sound....oh yeah the sound!!! I am 18 years old so i wanted to find the loudest exhaust i could to draw attention...well i found it! with the hard top on the noise can get quite annoying. with the top down it sounds amazing. I actually lined the entire trunk with dynamat which helped alot. but then again added some weight. i mean it this is loud i try not to accelerate too much when i leave early in the morning for school or surfing cause it will wake! up the neighbors.

thats about it i love it but if i had the chance again i would get the resinated instead. the only downfall is that there is a tinny sounding rattle from 4000 rpm all the way to redline. its not the cat, might be the heatshield after the headers but i dont think so...i think it is coming from the connecting pipe insert thing i mentioned earlier btu i dunno and im too lazy to go check it out. i will tho cause it is embarrassing. ok price, LOUD, looks good, LOUD, great people dealer behind it, LOUD, tone is great, oh did i mention LOUD?

2.5" cat-back designed for turbo cars. Full stainless, straight through muffler w/ no resonator. $385 from Enthuza. They just ran out of their usual Thermal mufflers, so they substituted in a (more expensive) Cone Engineering muffler on my unit. The piping is 2 1/2" OD, 2 3/8" ID. Weighs 20lbs w/ clamp. Uses a strange sheet metal clamp to clamp the 2 pieces of piping together. The muffler is beautifully polished, but it's completely hidden from sight unless you're on hands and knees.

Now the problems: 1. the cat flange has an ID of 2 5/16", so it's partially blocking the flow into the piping. I tried to port it, but had to give up because of the toughness of the stainless steel. 2.The holes on this flange are too big! As I tighten the nuts, the washer starts to get pulled into the holes. Furthermore, there is no way to ensure the very crucial alignment of the 2 flanges. 3. The sheet metal clamp was a huge PITA. Make sure the pipes are clean and lubricated if you do this. 4. The tip! Tip is a plain 3" OD Stainless Pipe with satin finish (unpolish). This is not necessarily a bad thing. However, the tip points slightly downwards, which makes the car look droopy. The alignment in the exh cutout is only so-so. Also, the slash cut appears to be slightly canted towards the middle of the car- very awkward. Taken together, the tip gives the unfortunate impression that this exhaust was rigged up by Speedee muffler & brake down the street.

Once warmed up, the sound at idle is very quiet. Just off idle to 2000rpm it's quiet noisy and slightly boomy. At 3000-4000 mild throttle cruise, it's again wonderfully quiet. Any acceleration brings out a deep growl. Much stronger 'hit' from the turbo. Also holds boost much better at high rpm. Chad S is a great guy to talk to and deal with. I would like to recommend this product, but there are just too many areas for improvement currently, both in aesthetics and air-flow.

I selected the Enthuza Car M1 Racer ($280) which is an aftermarket cat-back exhaust system. The exhaust pipe is 2-1/4" in diameter using T-304 stainless steel. In lieu of a tip, there is a 3" electropolished slant cut exit pipe. (The slant matches the curve of the rear bumper and the diameter is slighly larger than stock.)

Enthuza Car also offers the M1 Cruiser which uses a 24" resonator and a 3-1/2" polished tip. This version is for drivers that prefer a quieter exhaust. ($375)

For more information on both systems, please contact the manufacture at www.enthuzacar.com.

I am very pleased with cost, appearance, sound and performance of my new installation. The two-piece construction is connected with a self molding sleeve that prevents leaks. The system uses all of the factory hangers and I have not experienced any squeeks or rattles.

The construction is first rate and the appearance is top notch. The sound is very deep and throaty from idle to about 3,000. From there, as the RPM's climb it slowly transitions to a higher pitch that seems to pull stronger than the stock system to the 7200 RPM redline.

What is most impressive about this system is that the sound is deep at idle, crisp under full power, yet mellow in fifth gear at 65-75mph on the highway. The M1 Racer is sporty enough for the track yet civil enough for the highway.

Having installed a rollbar (for track events) and 15X7 inch Panasports on my 94R many years ago, it has seemed to be missing something as the rest of the car has remained 100% stock. With the addition of my new exhaust, my Miata now sounds as aggressive as it looks.

If you plan to install this system yourself, a breaker bar is a big help and a 14mm deep socket will help speed up the process as well.

This is the stainless M2 speeder with the Borla Muffler and the 2.5 inch rolled stainless tip.

I intially ordered the budget M2 Speeder which is aluminazed rather than stainless since I live in Alabama, but I did upgrade to the Borla muffler. However, Jason at Enthuza apparently didn't like the look of his aluminized tubing and he upgraded me to stainless at no additional charge. Jason is a super nice guy and was very easy to communicate with and had emailed me some sound clips to help me make up my mind as to which product I wanted. I had the exhaust within a few days of my order and it is very well constructed. It's substantially lighter than the stock exhaust. The total installation, including removal of the stock exhaust, took me 45 minutes using handtools. I had started hitting the bolts and hangers with WD40 daily about the time I ordered it, and everything came off with a minimum of fuss. Installing the new exhaust took about 10 minutes once the old one was off and it all lined up perfectly. I've had it on for 2 days now and I love it. Sounds great.! No drone while cruising, but a much more pleasing exhaust note than stock under accelleration and not overly loud (though it is a bit louder than stock).

Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust with Borla Muffler and 3" Rolled Polished Stainless Steel Tip.

Product arrived without damage in heavy duty box. Noticeably lighter than stock, the cat-back exhaust was easy to install with the tip centered perfectly in the opening.

I was initially disappointed with the tone of the system. It was bass heavy and very loud to me. I'd read that a 200 mile break-in period was required for the system to mellow. After approximately 100 miles, the tone has quieted down and is, in my opinion, perfect for the Miata. It is quiet at idle, speaks up during acceleration and sounds mean at full throttle. I've noticed a slight performance increase but wouldn't spend the money for that alone. I went back and forth for several months between the Enthuza NB Speeder and the Roadstersport 3. Both appeared to be well built but I chose the Speeder due to the inlet pipe geometry which seemed to be a little better designed for airflow. Jason at Enthuza Car is a great guy to work with and is truly interested in producing a quality product for each individual customer. I would highly recommend this exhaust system for anyone wanting a nice sounding, performance oriented cat-back for their NB.

Stainless Exhaust with Borla muffler.

I installed this product yesterday and have driven fifty miles on it so far.

After having a full aftermarket exhaust on an old car I was a bit timid when it came to upgrading the miata -- I didn't want cabin drone at any RPM. I did, however, want to get rid of the nasal, raspy sound of the stock exhaust on my 2001 SE and replace it with something deeper. The fit was perfect the first time I bolted it down. Its tip protrudes a few inches farther than the stock tip. It's also highly polished and a bit thicker, but nothing that I would consider extravagant. Complete removal and installation took 15 minutes. It sounds great. The nasal stock sound is gone and has been replaced with a very deep tone between idle and about 3k rpms, and above 4k it roars! There is no resonance and the volume is still very reasonable. This system should meet anyone's needs sound-wise unless they want volume to attract attention. Overall, I feel I got what I paid for and I am very happy to have paid for it. The build quality, fit, and sound are all excellent.

It arrived in about two weeks, with a small dent on the tip, but nothing worth mailing it back for. Installation was a breeze; I noticed the exhaust flange holes had been expanded a bit, perhaps in repsonse to previous buyer's comments as to the difficulty in fitting the muffler. The mod worked like a charm. The sound is remarkably better than the stock can - deep, slightly burbly at idle, with a glorious sound as you wind it up. I don't know how the new Borla muffler could sound better than this. Best $225.00 any M2 Miata owner can spend. Nice job, Chad!

I was able to use the old gasket. It has just the right sound and really humms great as it winds up. I can tell that there is a performance increase. It is a great buy and does just as well as the all stainless steel or chrome ones that you can't see anyway.

I put this on without the car being jacked up or on ramps although that would have made it easier. The only tools were the wrench for the nuts, a scrwdriver and a prybar. It took more time to get the old one off than install the new one. The flange side hanger was turned opposite to the stock one which made it easier to put on and is just as secure. Thanks Chad

EnthuzaCar Speeder2 Muffler 'Budget Series'.

The EnthuzaCar stainless body is much smaller and lighter than the oem muffler. Chad provided some information prior to purchasing that encouraged me to select the 'budget'. It is called budget because it utilizes heavy wall aluminum piping in lieu of galvanized steel. It took about 2 weeks from order to receive - it arrived in good condition. The old muffler came off in 10 - 15 minutes, however, the new bolt up flange did not mate with the existing bolt pattern. It took me about 30 minutes to 'side drill' and file the bolt holes out approximately 3/32". After I finally got the matchup, it simply bolted on. I had asked Chad to include a gasket, which did not come with the muffler. So, I used the old gasket and fortunately, it does not leak.

My desire for an improved exhaust sound was fulfilled with the installation of this product. The 2 1/2" round stainless tip looks like it is sized properly for car size - more than a stock, not goofy big. It sounds somewhat like my Ansa on my old 90 M1. After it warms up, it provides plenty of sports car sound. I did not want obnoxious loud, just could not stand the hissing oem can. My impression is that it has a little added HP, but that may just be sound instead. Chad, at EnthuzaCar, is very responsive and wants to do a good job. I received an email from Chad stating that he was starting over on my muffler because of weld splatter and was going to refabricate. The heavy wall piping appears to be very appropriate for this use. I recommend this product for someone who wants sport car sound for a reasonable price (paid $225 with shipping).

BUT, the sound is also exactly what I wanted - a true sports car sound finally! It's deeper and more throaty than stock at lower RPM's but never obnoxious.

Hybrid of the two systems, I basically have an M1 Cruiser system without the big tip. All mandrel bent stainless steel, beautiful quality. It didn't feel any heavier than stock. Uses all stock hangers, and has an outlet for the 02 sensor. The sound at startup is a deep rumble, almost V8 like. Idling is quiet, but there is a deep "glug-glug" that hints at what is under there. Revving is MUCH quicker, but that is probably due at least in part to my Racing Beat/Crazy Red intake. Like the others, my butt dyno tells me that the car is accelerating harder, and so does the extra half a car length that I gained on my friend's '93. It's only been on the car for about two hours, but I've been driving around for all 7,200 seconds since I tightened the clamp.

As soon as the UPS guy left my house, I called my friend up and we got some beer and set out to the garage. We put the car up on stands, and let it cool for about a half hour while we gathered the tools we would need. I also sprayed the rubber hangers and cat bolts with penetrating oil at this time. I creeped under the car, air ratchet in hand, and took the cat bolts off with absolutely no problem. From there, I pulled off the rubber hangers by hand, and soon the stock system was off. Installation of the new was just as simple. Everything fits perfectly, with the exception of the very slight rattle due to a heat shield in the back. I'll fix it in the morning.

Even though it's only been installed for a short time, I love it. It sings, and as advertised, it's just loud enough to let others know you're there, but quiet enough not to attract the attention of the cops gathered at the 7-11 I pass on my way home. Bottom line Great system, especially for the bargain price! I'd buy another one, and my friend already is jealous of the deep sound. His system sounds absolutely tinny when compared.

It comes with either a 2.5" polished exit pipe or a 3.5" polished tip. I choose the polished tip. It completely and easily replaces the factory muffler.

The muffler on my car is a prototype, but very close to the production model. I like this muffler very much. Visually, its a handsome item with a good shine that shouldn't ever rust. The tip is larger than stock, but does not stick out any more than the factory tip.

I cannot tell by the seat of my pants whether or not this muffler produces any more power. Considering that it is a straight pass through muffler (you can see straight through it) I imagine it would produce more power with applications that require less back pressure.

 The M2 Speeder is a great sounding muffler. Its definitely lower and louder than stock, but is never raspy or buzzy like your typical RiceBoy muffler. It has an almost V8 sound to it at it's loudest. The increased sound is most noticeable at lower RPMs (1000 - 3000) and at half or more throttle. At less than half throttle or higher RPMs the sound mellows out and at cruising speeds around 4000 RPM the muffler sounds almost stock. You noticed it most around town and when blipping the throttle at traffic lights, but not on the highway.

A little loud at first, but got better after 500 miles. Engine feels more responsive. Harder to control the launch due to tire spin. Contrary to common wisdom that a 2.5" system would lose torque, this system seems to have increased the torque from my SC 1.8L.

Noise level is subjective...I'm a 54 yr old fart, so I don't like a lot of noise...but I can live with this, now that it has "broke-in" and is quieter. I told Jason I thought it was too loud at first, so he made a second system and shipped it to me free of charge while I continued to use the the Borla system. The second system used a Thermal Research muffler. But it was louder than the Borla was when it was new. The Thermal was more of a rice-boy buzzy sound...which I'm sure my 25 year old son would like...but not me. I didn't get to G-tech the Thermal system but it did not feel as responsive as the Borla system. I am shipping the Thermal system back. Both of these mufflers used the same 2.5" stainless tubing with a 20+ inch mid-pipe resonator. The Thermal muffler was a little quieter at cruise speeds, but was a lot louder when at full throttle and on boost. I suspect the Thermal muffler would be quieter after break-in also, but I believe it is much louder than the Borla was when new. What I want to stress here is not just a 6hp (a lot for a Miata) increase on a SC application, but that Jason at Enthuza Car really stands behind his product. He is the one that insisted on shipping the second complete system without my returning the first system beforehand. He was all over wanting me to be completely satisifed. When I told him I couldn't accept the Thermal system, he was trying hard to figure out a 3rd option...but I told him I would keep the Borla. THAT is customer service!!
