GReddy Performance Products, Irvine, CA is looking for vehicles to prototype new GReddy Exhaust Systems(Supreme SP, Revolution RS, or EVOlution GT)

Approved vehicles will be scheduled for inspection.  We will need access the cars for 2 full business days (starting at 9:00am on the first day and ending at 5pm the second day.  We are closed during the weekend.)  The vehicle will be dyno'ed in order to record the baseline data.  Then fabrication will begin, followed by additional tests and dyno testing.  Once prototyping is complete, the stock exhaust system will be reinstalled.  At that time we will contact you to pick up the vehicle as it was delivered to us.

Two New Supreme SP Options for the ND Mazda Miata

Miata Axle-back and Cat-back exhausts arrive this month!



The Supreme SP for the 4th generation ND Mazda MX-5 Miata was designed and engineered specifically to suit the USA spec 2.0l Skyactiv-G engine combination. Unique to this application is the availability of either the pre-resonated axle-back muffler system, for maximum sound control with enhanced flow. Or there is also a full cat-back system, that includes a dual resonated mid-pipe for even more performance and a sportier sound. The full system showed power increase throughout the RPM band, with maximum gains, of 13hp/8ft-lbs, as low as 3500rpm. Both options use the same unique rear section with dual 82mm GReddy exhaust tips. Like all GReddy Supreme SP systems the fully hand-welded 304 Stainless-Steel exhaust carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty

Both the Axle-back and Cat-back Supreme SP exhausts will begin to arrive by the end of March...
