Country drive in an LS3 Miata
Cruising around in a 480 horsepower Miata enjoying a late autumn afternoon. No traffic laws were harmed while making this video- really! The wide angle camera makes it seem a lot faster than it is.
Video is from a GoPro Motorsports Hero HD camera using the "open back" case with the holes in the case taped off with packing tape. This is the best solution I've found to capture the Exhaust "music" without too much wind noise.
Miata V8 5.0 First Drive
2nd short drive really but who's counting. Interior yet to go in, still fine tuning engine. Lots of fun so far, though!
The Banshee [S1 Ep.3-1]
What do you get when you cross the quintessential girl's car...the Mazda Miata...with the ultimate guy's car...the Shelby Cobra??? Well, GearZ is the only place to find out as Stacey blows apart an innocent Miata to get it ready for it's conversion into a V8 powered, screamin' machine called the "Banshee"
Nothing special, just checking out what the Exhaust sounds like. I was going for a cleaner more controlled sound. Using magnaflow mufflers.

Miata TopSpeed PRO-1 Exhaust 1.6L N/A
Here we have a video of the TopSpeed PRO-1 exhaut, check out the website they make tons of great products for lots of popular cars, www.topspeedauto.com. I got this Exhaust and drove it for a week with the cat still on, and so far 2 days with the catless test pipe. On a Naturally Aspirated 1.6L I noticed a increase over my other "performance" Exhaust, not only is this Exhaust FAR better in quality and sound, but it is 60mm so the air flows alot better. I myself love loud Exhausts and having the catless test pipe is awesome, it gives it a deeper growl, probably a 25% loudness increase over stock cat aswell. You can find this Exhaust on ebay, the companies name is "delubozparts". I wish I could have got video of the welds on this Exhaust, they are beautiful and very well done. For the price you cannot beat it!
Sorry about the under car shot I didnt clean up the Exhaust at all.
If you have any questions comment and I can answer them, if not I can get answers for you!
