Been a lurker here for a while reading up on yalls posts and whatnot. Thought I'd stop being a creeper and introduce my self. I'm Stephen, i live in San Antonio, Texas. I drive a 2000 nb. Bought the car about a year ago,stock other than a deleted resonator and stainless brake lines as well as a hard dog double diagnal roll bar and harness bar. 96k miles for 4500. Hard s suspension equipped.
Drove it around like this for about 6 months. Painted the wheels black, cold air intake, replaced a leaky caliper,put ceramic pads in, oil changes, etc. THEN, I stumbled upon a turbo miata for sale on craigslist for 2500. Blown motor. But it had a lot of parts on it, guy even threw in a new motor. So i jumped on it. Finally one step closer to chasing my friends 1.6 turbo car.
That's my miata parked next to the parts car. Sorry i didn't take much pictures of the swap process. Don't mind my schnauzer.
So i put the black turbo donor car back together with all my stock parts and the replacement motor and sold it with enough money left over for a few upgrades. Being a begi coolant reroute, mspnp to replace the voodoo box, and a few other odds and ends. Took the car to the track and noticed that my clutch didn't hold the extra power. Still ran a 13.9.
My buddy standing up drives a 1.6 turbo. Motors in a 99 nb with a full cage.. wasn't racing that night.
So back under the knife again for a stage 2 act clutch
Haven't taken her to the track again since but it sure does grab now. Been sorting out my tuneing and ebc, pcv routing and what not. Will have to post a rencent engine bay pic soon. But this is how she sits now....
