Does not exist. You will have to piece it together. Everyone here loves magnaflow stuff. High flow cat, resonator, and muffler. Welded up with some mandrel bent piping.

That site has some good pre bent piping. The zx2 uses the same piping.

I dont think there is a header for the b6.

2 inch may be a little big for the SOHC

Post Re: rs exhaust upgrade
well i would be doing it at the shop you see. so im just trying to get my info straight. so you say there are no headers for my car? DAMN well what would you recomend the piping for my car? what size? 1 and a half? or more someone said no more then 2inches for the mx3 but yeah i only got a SOHC.....tho if i CAN somehow get a BPT motor i will motorswap but either way i need to do up this exhaust now because its all rusty and loud :X so i would just go on the magnaflow website and order the stuff can you possibly link me to the few items i need. and as for the rest. i should just goto the autoparts store for some normal pipe? or should i get some kind of special pipe....or not special rather higher then standard/normal pipe you see at C A P or advanced autoparts

if you are thinking about a motor swap or swap and turbo... I would wait. Coming from someone who has done 2 exhaust setups.. I'd say think ahead and do it once. If you can hold off, I would. Swap in the bp(t) and then go with 2.5 inch (talking turbo here). Better than droppin $1200 when $600 would work. I would try to get the most out of the existing setup while you can. A new muffler and res is probably a good idea... Cat may need an upgrade -where I live we don't require a Cat, so look into that if poss.

you can get the downpipe from the headers to the cat cheap on ebay. Search mx-3 downpipe and you'll get some cheap options

I think my pacesetter is a little too whiney/raspy sounding for my taste. I'll be glad to get rid of it. Also has a bad resonance.

Probably better off just going full custom. Road Runner here in Springfield wanted like $300 + harware (mufflers etc) for a full mandrel 3" when I was looking into it a couple years ago. Look into local exhaust places.

The expensive part is the muffler, resonator, and cat. I would go full custom myself, I don't trust people so I build my own :)
