Since then shes has many upgrades and work. Mainly to get it road worthy. But for starters, a friend and i bought a 94 parts car, and i took the torsen LSD, along with rebuilding all 4 CV joints on the rear axles, and of course some painting.

Next, was the turbo. Being the previous subaru enthusiast that I am, I opted or a used TD04 off a friend. I took it apart and powdercoated my cool side red, and purchased a FANTASTIC kit off fellow forum memeber Sturovo, who welds up exhaust bits. He made me a manifold, downpipe, oil and coolant feed and return lines all for $650!! Along with a used CX Racing intercooler, with help from my pup Harri.

18psi, I'm trying here. Ruining this forum 1 post at a time, however I can't completely delete myself from it due to all of the help I've already received from the great people here that do know how it works, including both yourself and Curly.

Oh look, another plasti-dipped flat black Miata, slammed on racelands and XXRs with a GV lip.

Good to see another thesameeverybodyelseclubroadster build.

Whatever happened to originality in the car scene?

Meh, at least it looks better than that first pic. If you get it off the ground and peel the dip it might be a pretty decent car.
Do you have some more pics of Sturovo's parts?

If you would have seen in person the paint job that destroyed this LE, you would not so much care about the black. In the picture I know it just looks white, however it was white with blue/purple sparkle in it and felt like 120 grit sand paper; as If the PO had painted it with a roller and threw some arts and crafts sparkles on it. And I'm trying to get the motor up and running before I worry about how it looks, I've got all all winter for that. I will try and get some pics up of Sturovo's parts when I get home. And the XXRs are cheap, but weighed a lot less compared to the 15x10 and 15x8 diamond steelies that were on it.

For some reason, I keep thinking the photos are swapped. Like he got it when it was plasti dipped black, and looked ok-ish from 10 ft. And now it's transformed into the white pile.

I dunno, maybe it's the ricer dyslexia, where everything stated is fucked up and backwards.

Also, why two identical threads?

Not bashing op, it's just whenever I see something hella slammed, my eyes glaze over, and I have to re-read **** to comprehend it

I also plan on some sort of flares or over fenders because they were rolled and pulled to look like pieces of bacon.

I don't know, I need the first post deleted. My internet double posted for some reason.

is an incredibly retarded "mod" list.

Let's list the POS parts:

The above, it's all rice.
