HOWL­ING CO­BRA

Total MX-5 - - NEWS -

The mk4 MX-5 is re­ally start­ing to catch the at­ten­tion of the af­ter­mar­ket and Sh­effield­based Co­bra Sport Ex­hausts has just re­leased a col­lec­tion of stain­less steel ex­haust sys­tems to fit it.

Co­bra’s col­lec­tion in­cludes a di­rect re­place­ment cat-back sys­tem with a sin­gle tailpipe to one side, a twin-tailpipe with a cen­tre exit, and dual exit twins. The non-stan­dard set­ups also come with a re­vised and low­ered rear valance to ac­com­mo­date the new pipe ar­range­ment. The ex­hausts are made from man­drel-bent T304 stain­less steel pipes that are TIG welded.

For fur­ther vari­a­tion there are res­onated and non­res­onated ver­sions of each sys­tem, and Co­bra can also sup­ply a de-cat pipe for the sec­ondary cat­alytic con­ver­tor. The lat­ter, used in con­junc­tion with the non-res­onated dualexit sys­tem, is claimed to give a 7.4lb ft gain in torque and im­prove the shape of the torque and power curves at lower rpm. As ever with af­ter­mar­ket ex­hausts, style and power are part of the prom­ise, and Co­bra also says that at a max­i­mum of 88db its sys­tems won’t deafen you, and will pass an MOT.
