The Racing Beat road race mufflers and the "regular" cat-back mufflers??



I was browsing through the Racing Beat web page and I noticed that the road race ones are $5 more? They look the same to me



Regular ...





Road Race ...

I just noticed that the "regular" has a 3-inch polished 304 stainless steel tip ... and the "Road Race" has a 3.5-inch polished 304 stainless steel tip.



Are there any other differences?

Its prolly just the way they sound...3.5 would flow more, but for N/A you still need back pressure...



Though I've never really thought about this...

That's what I was thinking, I just hope the one in the picture I attached is the "regular" one cause that's what I'm probably going to get.

ok if you goto their site you will find out that the road race mufflers have a longer pipe going to the y-pipe(road race of course)



you can use old mufflers with the help of their extension tubes

the road race aims up like the pic you posted. i'm fairly sure the road race is the one used in the picture. look at its angle.

i didnt know it was that new. i'm wanna say i'm fairly sure the red car is turbo. that pic is super familiar (rx7club). either way, i dont see how it could be the "regular" one judging the angle of the exhaust tip.

good luck with the search, though

Is this the exhaust you're looking for? This is 3inch, then splits into dual 3inch, and then the mufflers cut it down. It's really nice and quiet actually.. Very sleeperish
