Most folks start with easy bolt-on items like the RoadsterSport Q muffler (just two bolts!) and sway bars (see our Racing Beat and Progress Sways).

See our Project 2012 thread for detailed discussion of many of our most popular bolt-on mods.

NA is 90-97
NB is 99-05
NC is 2006 to present.

Thus, you have an NC. You will also see discussion of NC1 and NC2 because Mazda made some changes that started in the 2009 model year. Thus, 2006-2008 are NC1.....and 2009+ are NC2.

In general, longer primaries better. Thus, between the Racing Beat and the RoadsterSport I would take the Roadstersport for its longer primaries (and no sensors sticking directly into the collector which is the MOST critical point for smooth flow). On the other hand, having those O2 connections in the collector is practical for some installations. I prefer moving the sensors to the midpipe and keeping the header collector clear.
