My name is Thomas Müller. I'm from Stuttgart/Germany. I previously owned a RX7 Turbo II wich seemed to be a bit too hot for me... in other words: It started burning when I drove it one night because a marten tried to eat my fuel line.
The car was my hobby so I needed a new one to work on at the weekends. I found an imported canadian Miata with hardtop for 800€ in Ebay and bought it unseen.
The car was a real surprise. It was completely rust-free and just needed some minor fixes and new paint because the pre owner tried to paint the car black but was not really gifted when it came to painting.
I allready fixed the paint, installed a flyin miata link ecu which I got really cheap (150€) did all the necessary maintenance stuff stuff including a new timing belt, new fluids, new gaskets, new hydraulic valve lifters and so on. I also installed the bigger 4 piston front brakes from a RX7 for more safety (and because I killed the small original disk brakes while having some fun at a lokal race track
). Ofcourse I spent some money for a better suspension, too.
Here are some pictures:
First what was left after my RX7 burned down:
The Miata when I got it:
How it looks like at the moment. Got some square headlights because I didn't like the round ones:
Some weeks ago i decided it was time for more power. I allready managed to get my RX7 to 350hp all on my own so I guess I will be able to build a nice turbo setup for my Miata with some help from the forum. I want to get round about 200 hp with the stock 1.6l engine and a T25 turbo and maybe build a second engine with some better internals later if I get bored.
AAAAND there is allready my first question: How much psi would I have to run with my 1.6l engine and said T25 Turbo out of a 200SX to get my 200hp. and what would be the maximum pressure with my stock engine?
