To make a long story short, in 2010 the previous owner decided to sell it. I thought the price was right and now I have my hands on it. I never thought I would own that crazy Miata.
I have my own TRP Mazda MX-3, so I'm not new to power and speed. For years my MX-3 and this Miata had a feud. It was to see which Mazda was faster. That doesn't matter now since I own both of them. The PO posted youtube videos of himself racing a STI and beating it.
The year on the pictures is wrong. It is suppose to be 2010, just in case a good eye catches the flaw.
Here are the specs on my Miata:
1.6L stock internal B6 swap
Electromotive TEC III Standalone,
8,000RPM rev Limit
Custom Turbo Manifold
Custom Fuel Rail
MSD 8.5MM Wires
NGK V-Power #8
350HP PT FMIC
2" Intercooler Piping
Extreme ACT Clutch
Innovate XD-16 Wideband
BF Drag Radials
Original BP drive train
HKS Boost Controller low boost 15psi, high boost 22psi Yes, I know I'm crazy. My motto is go big or go home. It has served me well.
I edited my posts for everyone to understand. I told you'll that I would work on that grammar. I will do my best to keep it up so that no problems arise in the future.
I hope everyone appreciates the effort.
