I'm Ryan, everyone calls me Seven.
I've owned 40+ cars since I've been 16, I'm 28 now... finally starting to slow down as well. Everything from a 494whp (all motor 643whp on a 150 hit) C5 with 4.10s to an S13 with an SR/T28, 06 STI, another C5, 350Z, FR-S, Boss 302, etc etc - I get bored easily
Originally from the Philly area, moved here in september, work for MS (like most on the east side of Seattle do).
I've done many HPDEs on the east coast, finally getting my licensing done for club racing on the west coast... Probably running IT-S and SPEC944/PRO44 (read on). The g/f (who auto-x'd for years) will be running with me. She has a '13 Focus ST as her DD. I have a '13 F150 FX4 (loaded, air-conditioned seats son!) for a DD.
I'm too tall, old and fat to get into a SPEC miata (ie: caged) but I have the (aforementioned) 944 for club racing.
The Miata (a 1990 I got for $3k with a hardtop) is for fun on the street (ie no cage), thinking of a 200-230whp stock motor build (which if my old knowledge serves me right, is about the limit for the 1.6L), with some Konis/Springs, pads/lines/fluid, and probably some wider 15s (maybe 7, maybe 8, not sure).
I'm here to basically find out how to get the most for my money and find out what parts exchanges - ie the injectors that work for cheap? can use a 1G DSM BOV? etc etc. Basically looking to make good power for little money.
The idea is to spend about $5500 (parts only of course) to have the car setup for street fun. I think it's doable considering parts are cheap and I'm not really re-inventing the wheel here either.
I figure I'll try and stick with this car for a while since I now have 4 vehicles in my stable, something for every occasion right? haha
Too much typing you say? Wall of text you say?
