Curently waiting on Russ to finish moving so he can deliver the GTX, once I have it ill be working on it in the little spare time I have. Im kinda waiting and just turboing the BP instead of the B6, that would give me time to sort out issues with the GTX transmission.

Hey Gaz im intrested in picking up a exhaust soon.
Id like 2.5inch downpipe back, with high flow cat, no resonator. You choose the muffler, im looking for something that sounds like a old rally car with nots of pops and crackles.  If you could id like it to have tips exiting out the side by the rear wheel.
PM me a price, and I should be able to work something out soon.

Just a heads up, this comes more from the tuning than it does from the exhaust itself

And bouncing off the rev limiter?

That might do it too :)

From what I understand it's from aggressive spark timing & fueling.
I believe they intentionally tune certain cars these days to have a burble.
Shouldn't be hard to do the same with a standalone ECU

here's some external discussion:
https://forum.miata.net/vb/archive/index.php/t-208966.html
http://www.miataturbo.net/ecus-tuning-54/adding-little-burble-exhaust-under-decel-using-fuel-afr-target-timing-74296/

They mention fuel cut on decel. The XR2 ecu cuts fuel on decel until it hits 2500 rpm or so, when it re-engages. This can be easily observed with a WBO2 system

Myriad of other discussion on a google search, on how to get the 'burble'

Alrighty, I'll be starting to work on these starting June first. I ask that if you has stated that you want one built, that you could send a request to my email so I can track and bill easier. Garretrombal@gmail.com
