Was surfing around today and found this....

You may notice that the RX-7 is faster in both N/A and turbo.

So any ideas on what I should do for exhaust? I'm pretty much lost, hehe.

I'm looking at a Bonez superflo and Corksport SS catback. What do you think?

http://www.rx7.com/cgi-local/2catalog.cgi?cat=4&part=1

http://www.corksport.com/rx7/2rxindex.html

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

this is what u do... go buy a SS muffler(no tip just muffler) and buy another muffler that you will use... go to exhaust shop... Sidney tire did a good job on mine.... get them to put a whole new single exhaust on your car... and save yourself 500$ american! custom is better then store bought...

Yup it's 2.5 for N/A's.

So no cat's? Just straight pipe all the way? So I'll I need to get is a muffler? What do you recommend? Price to have it done by a shop?

Answer me!!

Thanks guys, I don't wanna waste money on name brands if I'm not going to see an improvment. One thing to consider though, Will the shop build it to withstand rotary temperatures? I've heard of more than one exhaust being ruined within a month of instalation because of the heat.

Ok hold on, beer clouding my mind a little here...

" go buy a SS muffler(no tip just muffler) and buy another muffler that you will use... "

you get the SS muffler with no tip to put in place of the prescilencer.. works just the same... has to be SS becuase of the rotary heat... and put a good muffler on the back... you can do this for really cheep at a muffler shop... and you can do this and save up for the header if u want or do it all at once

As long as u have SS mufflers then it should be fine... the rotary exhaust is not going to burn holes in the piepes.. i bought a Ractive SS muffler and i love it sounds great looks great... no probs..

Everyone knows that we're talking about Stainless Steel PACKED Mufflers, right?

Power Pulse Presilencer 1986-92 RX-7
Manual - Non-turbo*

The Power Pulse Presilencer is designed to be used with our wide selection of RX-7 Streetable Header/ Collectors to complete a bolt-on configuration. This same Power Pulse Presilencer is included as a sub-component with the Catalytic Converter Replacement Pipe/Presilencer assemblies we offer for all 1986-92 RX-7s. Furthermore, these Power Pulse Presilencers are ideal for those individuals wanting to fabricate custom exhaust systems incorporating either long or short primaries.
The Power Pulse Presilencer improves the character of the exhaust noise, dramatically reducing the inherent, obnoxious metallic high frequency noise with virtually no power loss. Constructed with perforated core of 304 Stainless Steel wrapped with high-temperature stainless steel wool, the Power Pulse Presilencer measures 20 inches in length with a 4-inch outside diameter. Additionally, the Power Pulse Presilencers we offer for use with non-turbo 1986-92 6-port engines feature the backpressure sensing tube necessary for proper operation of the 6-port actuator valves.

But if you don't care about name brands at all, there are alternatives. I got my pre-silencers from australia 80$ for the pair. EIGHT TRACK I have a spare glass pack (don't ask, I was forced by the cops to put it on) that was used for a couple weeks (and yes, they lose effectiveness VERY quickly) that I could give you. I've heard of people cutting them open re-packing them with SS and welding them shut. Ain't the prettiest but it would work.

Side note: 4 banger WOT temps 1100-1400 F
Rotary Insanity WOT temps 1800-2100 F !!!
Make sure you mention the insane temps to your muffler shop so that they use a thicker walled tubing. Later.
