Hi guys, I've been lurking around for months reading the massive amount of information this site has. I figured what the hell... why not introduce myself?
I haven't seen alot of modified Sunbursts/Yellow miatas around here so maybe I'll be one of the few?
When I was 16, I didn't really know much about cars except for the fact it has 4 wheels.
During my friends birthday, his cousin which was the owner of a '90 FM powered miata took me for a spin. HOLY CRAP! that thing just flew. Ever since then I've always wanted one.
5 years later, I finally managed to get my hands on one. I bought it in October 2008, and I have only driven it a few times before winter fell upon ooooh... Edmonton, Alberta. (Gets sorta cold up here you see...)
This was how it looked when I got her...If you look closely, my first baby is in the background...Gotta keep it in the Mazda Family
Previous owner did most of the work...but I'll be 'upgrading' the upgrades while time goes on.
Exterior: Flyin Miata Lowering Springs, Tokiko Illuminas, Konig Wheels (not sure of the model), Mid-Tenn flush headlights.
Power: Greddy turbo kit w/ cracked manifold, VTA BOV, Catalytic Converter delete, Magnaflow muffler, Intercooler, 305cc injectors, Greddy E-manage Blue, Profec-II Electronic Boost Controller, Aftermarket clutch..
I think thats it from what I can tell... Due to the cracked manifold and wanting more of an 'upgradable' path. I ditched the manifold/turbo/downpipe.
Also sold the Flush kit and putting the stock barn doors back on.
Currently in the works... I purchased a BEGI-S SS downpipe and when it comes, it will be mated with a FM (begi manufactured) Log Cast Manifold. For the turbo, I picked up a t25 from a redtop sr20det. Theres alot more work to make the turbo fit than I initially thought it out to be, but the only thing thats really concerning me is the power steering lines are in the way of the compressor housing.
This is the state its currently in, working on it here and there (the weather makes it unmotivating).
Hopefully I'll be able to finish whatever I need by April, so then it would be ready for some top-down cruising!
