The Racing Beat RX-8 Header for the Renesis engine is constructed using 100% stainless steel for superior quality, performance and appearance. Our exclusive cast stainless-steel mounting flange has been designed to allow the smooth transition of the exhaust gas flow from the engine to the primary tubing. Incorporated into the flange design are critical emission control air passages that were included on the OEM flange design. These small passages allow air to be pumped into the exhaust ports to aid in more efficient catalytic converter function. While this header is a race component and not emissions legal for street use, our header does not remove any catalytic converters, and is equipped with an oxygen sensor fitting and retains all emissions control functionality.

The Racing Beat RX-8 Header utilizes 1.75" OD, 14 gauge (.083"), mandrel-bent, 304 stainless steel tubing and features an exclusive Racing Beat engine-to-header flange. All required mounting hardware, an outlet gasket, and instructions are included. A engine-to-header gasket is NOT supplied with the kit, but the stock unit can be re-used unless it shows signs or damage, leakage, or extended wear.

As developed and tested on our engine dyno, the Racing Beat header produced a peak horsepower improvement of over 4 HP.

We are often asked about "heat wrapping" a header as a method to reduce heat in the engine bay. We do not recommend wrapping the header. Even though RX8 exhaust temperatures are not as high as other rotary applications, wrapping a stainless steel header will accelerate fatigue in the metal. A better answer is to use heat shields that do not reduce airflow around the header.

An engine-to-header gasket is available separately if needed.

RX-8 Race Pipe - 2004-2012 RX-8 - Racing Beat offers a full 304-stainless steel catalytic converter replacement pipe for RX-8 racing applications. The weight of this pipe is 10 lbs. This mandrel-bent 3" OD racing pipe is a direct bolt-on replacement for the stock catalytic converter section. This pipe utilizes a genuine OEM rear mounting flange for a secure fit to the stock (or an aftermarket) exhaust system. The race pipe is equipped with a sensor fitting for the oxygen sensor. (Note: Placement of the sensor in the pipe will cause the "check engine" light to be illuminated, but performance and engine systems for racing applications will not be affected.) Removal of the OE catalytic converter/presilencer section will result in a noticeably louder exhaust tone.

Resonated Catalytic Converter Replacement Race Pipe - RX-8 owners have discovered that a installing a non-resonated catalytic converter race pipe on a RX-8 can produce a surprising loud exhaust tone. If your racing application or local track requires a modest, quieter exhaust tone, then the Racing Beat REN.V2 resonated race pipe is the perfect solution.

Racing Beat offers a 3" OD fully stainless steel catalytic converter replacement pipe with dual resonators for RX-8 racing applications. Fitted with two (2) rotary-designed resonator units selected specifically for the RX-8 chassis. Each resonator is tightly packed with stainless steel wool for optimum sound supression and tone quality.

Both our resonated and non-resonated pipe versions are direct bolt-on replacements for the stock catalytic converter section. Racing Beat replacement pipes utilize a genuine Mazda OEM rear mounting flange to ensure a secure fitment to the stock (or an aftermarket) exhaust system. Each replacement pipe is equipped with a sensor fitting for the oxygen sensor. (Note: Placement of the sensor in the pipe will cause the "check engine" light to be illuminated, but performance and engine systems for racing applications will not be affected.)
