Default Exhaust

I would like to replace the stock mufflers on my 2007 Mazda RX-8 Touring. Is Borla Performance Exhaust a good choice? I am really tempted to place an order. They are currently offered for free shipping and sold at a discounted price on 4wheelonline. Any other suggestions?

Personally I would stick with what Racing Beat offers for the 8. More expensive, but you know the system will live behind a rotary. My experience with 8s is nil however.

I'll second RB, the headers are made to last but then again I think you don't need headers
on the 8s as they flow well to begin with. I assume you are getting a catback system? Not
an expert so can't give you much concrete advise.

I LOVED the RE-Amemiya exhaust I had on my RX-8 (pics on here....somewhere), which is now on lilring's RX-8.

If you want to spend north of $3 grand.......
