Hi my name is Allen, Iím 24, and I live in Austin, TX. I am a full time student and have two jobs. I graduated from Texas State Technical College with 2 associates degrees in automotive and Toyota specific. I am also ASE master certified. Since then I have been going to community college for credits towards my bachelor's degree in business from Texas State which I will be doing next semester.
Now on to the cars.
My DD is a 2004 Audi A4 which is lowered on STaSIS coilovers and Cargraphic wheels, APR chip, Evolution Motorsport intake and full custom exhaust.
As nice as it is, itís not a lot of fun to drive, hence the Miataís.
The first Miata was bought about 2 years ago from a guy stationed at Ft. Hood. He was being deployed back to Iraq and had no space for his project car, a 1997 Miata. He had plans of turboing the car so it has a forged motor with stock bore and stroke and 9:1 Wiseco pistons and a head off a í99. The car also came with brembo rotors (stock size) and Hawk pads, Tein coilovers, and st rear sway bar all brand new in box. The catch is the motor was in short block form and I had never worked on a Miata before. Since a lot of bolts were missing I bought 60 lbs worth off eBay for 40 shipped, and began piecing the car back together. After about 3 weeks of trial and error with bolts the car started with no problems. After 300 miles I put the rest of the parts on and it was by far the most fun car I had ever driven. Now it was time for a turbo, right? Wrong. 778 miles after the new motor my friend (a very good and trustworthy one) was driving down the road minding his own business when a lady decided me having a Miata was not a good idea pulled out in front of him totaling my car. I bought the car back from the insurance company, and to my surprise the car started. The whole front was gone and the airbags had deployed, but it didnít hurt the motor. So now onto Miata number 2.
I just bought the second miata about a week ago from this guy 1996 1.8 Pinging when hot at full boost
. So now to the question, I want a bandaids car to hold me over till I get married in Febuary which at that time I will be doing a twin scroll gt30 and hydra, so I donít want to waste money on MS. What do I need in addition to what is already on the car plus,
My forged motor from car # 1
Ditch MSD and go bipes
Larger injectors (what size)
I am looking for about 225-250 whp.
Thanks for all the info on this site it has helped me out a lot.
Also the first car will be parted out if anyone is interested in the stock parts.
I will post it up in a couple days.
