1997 Turbo miata with 108k. I have done everything on this car by hand and take pride in my work. It's nice to have a quick little car but something quick and with 4 doors would be nicer. Here's what she has:
Toyota coil on plugs
Tb28 turbo at 8psi
Mspnp stand alone
Ebay intercooler and pipes
Turbo XS Rfl bov
Rx7 460 injectors
3" exhaust with canister muffler
Aluminum radiator and shroud
FM comp motor mounts
XTD 6 puck clutch
Resurfaced fly wheel
Royal purple fluid
New shifter boot
Autopower rollbar with harnessbar
4-point camlock harness
Monster shift ****
Igees leather seats
Drag dr17 rims(17x7.5)
Kumho exscta 205's
AEM analog wideband
Raptor shift light
6-cd changer in trunk
tinted tails and sidemakers
H4 conversion headlights
Last owner got all the dents pulled and then those spots repainted
Tinted windows and sun visor
Now every good has some bad so here's mine.
The plastic rear window ripped at the bottom and I sealed it up with some silicon, it definitely takes away from the clean factor of the car.
The oil drain has a "touch" leak. Meaning, it leaks around the seal but only enough that you can touch, not enough to even drip.
The driver's side rear fender got scraped by some dumb bitch who ran after she scrapped it, happened in my complex parking lot when she pulled out one day.
If you ride around with the top down with another dude some people might laugh and call you gay.
It sometimes studders a tad when going into boost, but only for a couple hundred of rpms. I'm still working on resolving this but with a baby at home, I can only work on it when I have to go get more diapers but I end up taking 45 mins instead and my wife gets really pissed. I'm thinking it's a tuning issue. I had the megasquirt upgraded to an inverted spark and that's well all this started...so your guess is as good as mine.
Get's about 24mpg, kind of sucks for 190hp 4 banger.
This car is pretty ******* sweet, hands down. A miata alone is pretty sick if you get past the "ghey" part, then adding boost to that really makes a difference. I bought the car from a middle aged woman who bought the car from her middle aged glad ware woman friend who bought the car from Jeff Hass Mazda in Houston back in early 97. So being the owner of this unmolested roadster, I really don't want to even get rid of it and I'll probably just trade my pretty homo scion in instead, but what they hell...I'll post this car on here anways.

PS- You NEED to know about cars to prevent from blowing this thing up. It does have a stand alone engine management and improper tuning WILL cause problems.
