I don't, nor will I. It's not a dedicated track car. My summer daily and 2-4 HPDE events a month during the summer.

it's hard to describe and despite noob-logic but I the car is much quicker at higher speeds (ie above 60mph) than it is at lower speed due to the weight reduction ...

As I said, it will not be gutted. I don't want a loud, rattling track car.
I did this with a Miata and it was the worst DD ever.

So it goes back to, does FI need a dual exhaust or is it fine with a single exhaust?

I don't blame ya! I don't daily mine ... if I did I'd need a full time chiropractor!

is your single OEM? A true dual will help ...

Yeah, Single OEM.

And the Miata, I did go to the chiropractor because of it. Worst ever.

So now, instead of a track car for the streets, I'm wanting a reliable street car for HPDE days.
