bought this and fitted it in conjunction with the cat by pass pipe and whilst I was at it I advanced the ignition timing from 8 degrees to 14 degrees. My car is a 1991 1.6 auto and all three mods have definately made a big difference.
I have a favourite bit of road that I use and when accelerating hard from the lights at the bottom of this hill I could just hit 65 before i drew level with a farm gate. Tried it tonight and hit 75 so it has made a massive difference.
Time will tell it if hits the fuel economy badly but the car certainly runs smoother sounds better and revs a lot freer.
Very easy to fit.. tok about 30 minutes from start to finish but i have made a heat shield to protect it from the hot exhaust as due to its position it will draw hot air from around the exhaust.
Excellent service from MX5 parts.... as usual. order via the web and was here less than 24 hours later.
In short I would recommend this. Dont expect it to transform your car into a fire breathing monster cos BHP isnt cheap but it does sound nice and runs better so it gets a thumbs up in my book.
