umm ok guys liek i have my miata and my coworker in his 94 toyota mr2 n/a beat me on woodward sunday night and its totally lame and now it needs to go faster...
Or, not so much. Hi, I'm Paul and I own a 1991 Classic Red Miata A-package but with short throw shifter and LSD. Right now it only has additional center brake light brightness and a Randall DIY cowl intake (plus some weight savings).
A coworker of mine did in fact beat me at a light on Woodward here in the Greater Detroit Metro Area on Sunday night in his N/A and completely stock '94 MR2. My girlfriend asked why (she thinks the miata is fast) and I proceeded to tell her that her '07 stock Saab 9-3 Turbo is faster in a straight line. She loves turbo pull and so I told her I want to turbo my miata and her response was classic: "but maybe it doesn't need to be faster than my Saab?!?" ;-)
So anyway, here I am. I've been lurking your forum for several days and I've decided to take the plunge. I'm going to start with MS PNP (as recommended by a diff coworker) and some RX-7 stock injectors (which I hear work quite nicely if 165whp is my goal), and a wide-band O2 to get good at tuning while I try to con some of you out of used pa-I mean buy some used parts in the marketplace at reasonable prices.
A little about myself: I'm an engineer at a major international auto parts manufacturer based in Germany, I grew up near Indianapolis, IN and now live in SE MI. I enjoy basketball and soccer, Top Gear and MCM, and trying to determine how I can buy parts for my miata while saving money for a ring (yes she's that good, and will probably be taking the how-to pictures I eventually post).
If something in my post is incredibly offensive or wrong I happily accept your correction or verbal flogging. I have seen how brutal ya'll are on n00bs and I expect nothing less than the best! Included is a picture of my car with the hydraulic lift I bought at a work auction for $25
