Hello everyone, I used to frequent this site but mostly lurked around reading the info you all posted learning as much as i could.
about 3 years ago I purchased a 1990 classic red base model that was really mistreated by its previous owner and I restored it and had big plans for before the miata was lost to a fire caused by a teenager in a ghetto Cadillac. I didn't have the money or time to purchase a new car before I joined the military.
Before I knew it two more years passed between Basic, AIT, Airborne, getting to my first unit and then immediately deploying to Iraq. I got back and on my leave I purchased my current car a stock 2004 Mazdaspeed MX-5 with the grand touring package, and the owner installed the small sideskirts, a clear bra on all front facing panels, and a cruise control. Lucky me the previous owner was an old guy with too much money and bought the car cash only for the reason that he liked the way it looked, and got rid of it 30k miles later because he didn't like how fast it was.
Since I've owned it I have installed the BEGI intake system, TB tube, catless DP, Forge Bypass valve, magnaflow exhaust, and an Apexi Turbotimer. and I have a speedhut boostguage, posport wideband AFR, and halman boost controller just sitting in my closet waiting to get installed hopefully this weekend
I'd like to see around 200 hp from these pieces, and im aiming for around 240hp but that will take some time
If y'all want to see my car I have pics here
