Racing Midpipe

The midpipe ordered was recommeded for my model and year (1999 - 2000; manual transmission). It would not come even close to fitting. The midpipe is sharply bent from the front flange, even though the exhaust path is relatively straight, as is the stock midpipe. The bend puts the midpipe about 1" into the Power Plant Frame. Had to return the $215 pipe at my own cost ($78.00 UPS ground) for a refund, which they say is subject to a restocking fee even thought the pipe is wrong for the car. Bad business.

Racing Beats racing midpipe for the 99-00 Miata. Beautifully handcrafted, fully-polished 304 SS.

Absolutely wonderful. Product arrived carefully packaged and right when it was supposed too. Ordering was simple through their website. Unlike others, I have the luxury of a full lift so your installation time may vary. Installation was simple, a couple of doses from some PB Blaster and an impact wrench got the exhuast bolts off. Only trouble was on the oxygen sensor, which had seized and I had to heat the O2 bung up with a torch and then use a regular open ended wrench to get it off. There is no room to get an oxygen sensor socket and 3/8 ratchet on the rear O2 sensor. Exhaust went on easy, following the same genral path as the factory midpipe, was supplied with new hardware. Only complaint was that it was only supplied with one gasket, which I my case I needed both.

Racing Beat is now my supplier of choice. Great products, excellent workmanship and great customer service. I don't know what everyone else's deal is, but everytime I call RacingBeat I have have had nothing but great customer service.
