I've wanted a miata for 10 or so years now. I've always been into bikes, so I never had a chance to have another toy. October 10th that changed.
This is before:
The wife said no more bikes, with which I tend to agree (for the time being), so I picked up this '99:
My daily driver is a 2001 Audi S4, and the last toy car was a '84 VW Rabbit with a 1.8T3/T4 swap. It put down over 300 to the front wheels depending on how well I could get the SDS to work. So, the Miata needs a little more power.
First things first though, in went the rollbar, suspension, and brakes.
Simplifed pad changes.
I got home today and had some packages on the front step.
Nice stack of dimes.
Here's what'll keep pressures in check.
And revs down once the 6 speed goes in.
The SS manifold should be here from BEGI tomorrow. Now if the temperature would go up 10 degrees or so I'd get to turning wrenches.
I played a bunch of games stalling the Maryland Emissions people with the turbo rabbit, so now as soon as we register a car we get the emissions test notice. So much for it being on a two year random cycle. In this case I don't mind; I can get the car turbo'd and have two years before its up for emissions again.
More to come if anyone cares.
