dont bash on me im a forum/car n000000b:cry:. so i bought a corksport catback exhaust couple days back, and when i looked under my car.. i realized my cat is welded to my stock exhaust.. my questions are:

1. can i use another bolt on stock miata cat and fit my corksport on that? i dont want to weld anything.. just bolt on everything.

2. will the holes of the stock miata cat and corksport exhaust line up?

3. will it pass emissions?

The first one on the grass is the corksport tip, the other 2 are my welded cat + stock exhaust

THANKS!

yes, the corksport exhaust is made to fit oem systems, and that normally consists of a bolt in cat. So any cat made for the miata will be bolt in. I suggest checking out the metalcore cats from Enthuza. They sound great, look great, bump your performance, and cost the same as a normal magnaflow ceramic cat.

Yes get an oem fitment cat. Enthuza, Magnaflow etc.. make direct fit options.

Get ready to wake the dead with your Corksport.

If it is not, it should be noted in the website. Just call them and ask. One guy runs the business and he's a good dude.

Not sure how strict cali is, but I've never had a problem. I believe they are just normal 200 cell metalcore cats. They have ceramic ones too for $50 bucks less if you wanna go the cheap route.

oh okay! and i had another question.. should i get a 2.25? or a 2.5 inch.. if my corksport is 2.5 inches, it'd make sense to get a 2.5 cat? or 2.25

Well, everyone has their own definition of " loud. " You just need to be gentle with the gas when going through side streets/main streets & etc. It is for sure really loud when your up in the higher RPMS though.

Quick tip: It does hang low if you do not know that already so just be careful.

when i had a test pipe, headers and my corksport drift exhaust, it was loud as hell. it sounded fantastic, but suuuuper loud. when i was wet weather drifting around my neighborhood, within about 10 minutes there were 3 cops. and that happened twice... so i've since them sold the exhaust.

oh yessssss, it is loud! especially when the rest of the exhaust isn't oem too.
and the tip with, be gentle with the gas doesn't work. in low rpm (like 1500) it's pretty deep and loud, and in higher rpms it's just loud. the best is when you try to get your car run 2100rpm, there it is actually pretty quiet. ;)

i ran mine last weekend for about 2 hours oin german autobahn, and it was incredible. when it's realy warm it realy can set on alarms!!!

mine always set off alarms at night time going down streets where people park on the curb, and ALWAYS set off every alarm possible in parking garages. I would just blip the throttle for fun and listen to 4 or 5 cars start beeping. :lol:
