Adds to the fun
The Hush exhaust brings a welcome resonance that is lost to the OEM unit. A bland rush of air becomes a declarative tone while avoiding the off-pitch 'blatt' Borla offers as a way to sell a sound no race car actually makes. Today's engines are incapable of the crisp rasp Abarth units brought to Triumphs and Healys in the fifties and sixties. This unit kindles those memories without giving the MX5 a deep bellow; more so than the OEM-permitted 'chuff,' the result is in character with a car that continues the spirit.

Exactly What I was Looking For
This exhaust was pretty easy to install and came packaged very well. I've had it on for about 800 miles now, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. It's loud when I want it to be and quiet when I pass by the California Highway Patrol. On the freeway I can barely hear the exhaust. Downshift a gear or three and it really wakes up, especially with the top down. The best part is that my friends can actually hear my car now :)

Looks Great, Sounds Great
This exhaust is exactly what I was looking for! On the freeway/while cruising the sound is barely noticeable. When you want to hear it, it's louder, deeper, and has no drone. Would highly recommend.

Exactly the visibility and exactly the sound I was looking for.
I've been traveling with this exhaust for a month and I love it very much. The quality is very good, installation was easy and the result, very beautiful. The exhaust looks good and sounds even better. I decide what I want, quiet sound or loud and strong, perfect! For two years I drive on an stock exhaust and now, it is like a celebration. I invited it without knowing how he sounded in reality and I am really pleased with the result. Sorry for my bad English ..

Great sound, beautiful construction, happy driver.
I installed my HoM this morning and have been driving all day. I absolutely love it.

The install was straight-forward and easily completed by a novice mechanic with no help. Some co-ordination required to remove and install the exhaust without an extra set of hands, but the whole thing took me less than an hour.

The trickiest part of the install is definitely removing and replacing the vacuum line on the barb that comes out of the back of the engine. It is in a tight spot, so small hands definitely help. I don't have small hands, so I found removing the brace helps, as does swearing under your breath.

This exhaust makes the car sound as good as it looks. A touch deeper at idle and when noodling through my subdivision, but it wakes right up when I go past about 20% throttle. Bassier, no drone, louder without being offensive, and a nice burble when I let off the gas. Super happy with this -- I took a chance, buying without hearing it on a similar car, and I'm glad I did.

It's like having two mufflers from "that other guy".
Two mufflers in one...or actually three now that I have a version of the future CAN-BUS integration through the variable intermittent windshield wiper switch installed (occurred at the 2017 Summer Camp event).

My muffler now runs from quiet, through three modes of active, to full-loud based on the five wiper settings. Awesome.

Fit, finish, and quality is all up to the usual FM standard. A must-do for those that like having a Jekyll & Hyde attitude.

You get what you pay for
Sounds great, excellent instructions, top quality. I installed the muffler and control myself in a day. Not a quick task but very straight-forward. The results are pretty much perfect. I have a long-tube header setup (but also tried muffler with a standard-length header) and I'm convinced this is one of the few options out there that can offer performance and sound quality on a header setup (I tried other mufflers). In both cases, the sound is tamed and is pretty much perfect. It's reasonably quiet when you want it to be and has a nice, progressive, deep sound as you get into it. I recommend using this with a LT header, or standard length header with the stock mid-pipe. Add an aftermarket mid-pipe and it will be too loud for most people. I couldn't be happier and wished I had started with this one!

Perfect Exhaust Note
Perfect exhaust note! It's exactly the sound I was looking for. Mellow and deep without any rasp or harshness. This muffler is the way to wake the ND up without offending the neighbors.

The install was easy enough even though I wound up not able to reuse the stock studs. The nuts were on so tight that even with a vice they wouldn't come off -- the stud and the vice just kept tearing up. New studs were easy to find at ace and it allowed me to get the parts tightened appropriately much easier. (Friendly suggestion to FM to include new studs and nuts just to make this whole thing easier)

There's very little instruction on running the vac hose, but it was super easy.

This is my second FM part (I also got the sways), and I couldn't be happier.

4 Thumbs Up
The exhaust is fantastic. I was concerned it would not be louder at all but it was exactly what I'd hoped for. Under idle or no load it is slightly louder making it easy to carry on a conversation with or without the top down. Under load it sounds awesome. Not tin can awesome but enhanced factory sound awesome. The tips also look great. Installation was simple and easy. I wish I could say the same, however, for the remote control. There was one more clip that needed undone for the fuseblock than detailed in the instructions which caused me to damage the hidden extra one. It appeared I received a pre-production version from what I could tell as the wire connectors supplied were not the same gauge wire as the wires being spliced in. The photo of the parts were also not exactly the same leading me to believe this was done before the final product was completed. Looking at the wiring inside the fuseblock that needed cut and spliced and the mis-matching instructions, I was not confident in quessing this version was correct and was not going to risk damaging the electrical on a brand new car. Exhaust yes! Remote no.

Note from Flyin' Miata: thanks to this feedback, we will be revisiting the instructions.
