Default 01 green MK turbo build

This is my 2nd turbo miata, first was a 93 with a custom WRX setup. Sold that car years ago and have forever missed it. Decided i wanted to find another and started searching for an NB2 with a 6 speed/torsen. This one appeared and has been in the works for the past 1 1/2 years. I had it repainted a few months ago also. Went with the standard BRG but had extra pearl and clear added. Also had the windshield surround, mirrors, front lip, rear spoiler, rear trim piece in front of decklid all painted gloss black to kind of replicate the ND club edition color scheme.

Had it dyno tuned last fall and it made 225whp / 210wtq @ 12psi on a dynojet.

Looks good. Xida GS when you want to upgrade your coilovers.

Well being turbo was fun but moving on and trying something new (k24 swap). I will be parting out all my turbo parts soon as i just picked up this donor car.
