Hey guys! My name's JD, I've had my NB1 for a little over a year now. I'm from CA, but I go to college in Pennsylvania studying astrophysics and computer science.
Used to have this shitbox '99 V6 Mustang convertible. It was enough to get me interested in cars, but a total POS. Decided I wanted something
with even less power
that I could work on myself and that was an actual car, so I sold the Mustang and picked my Miata up last May as a birthday present to myself.
First thing I did was go over the suspension and put in an FM Stage 2 suspension package. I managed to drive the original motor out of it, so I replaced it with an '04 NB2 motor. A few weeks ago I finally got the VVTuner installed to take advantage of that. And of course I just put in my Garagestar door bushings..
I've taken her to and from college cross country twice now, and it's been an awesome experience both times. Once camping (lol miata camping) and once doing a sort of endurance run, 3000 miles NY to CA in 3 days.
I already have my DIYPNP and hopefully in the next few weeks my turbo build will be coming together. I'm going to keep it conservative now, probably around 180-190 but with the potential to scale up more later when I get my roll bar.
My 6ULs and plasti-dipped black side skirts and mud guards. Usually not a big fan of dip but I think these came out nicely.

Revlimiter-style window switches I made

Looking forward to being a part of the community!
