Default 3rd times a charm, this ones a keeper. Turbo NB from NZL

o after going through 2 NA's, one naturally aspirated, one supercharged, I picked up a Turbo NB with a bit of work done to it for a good price, including a td04 turbo setup and willwood dynalite 11" brake upgrade. This is going to be my street legal weekend summer car, as well as Superlap/Time Attack and sprint Race car.

Previous mx5's are my first one which was an 89 BRG with nb bilsteins, reverent ms2e ecu, 1800 brakes and braided lines, toyo r888s and a weld in half cage. link here https://www.gpforums.co.nz/threads/5...sing-track-car Second was an 89 NA with sc14 supercharger and ms1, koni sport shocks, bolt in rollbar, 1800 brakes and some random 15x8s. Link here https://www.gpforums.co.nz/threads/5...X5-project-mk2

Current car:
998 NB Eunos Roadster

Mods when I got it:
Custom turbo kit with td04 turbo running 10psi around around 200whp.
Wilwood dynalite brake kit with 11inch rotors.
550cc injectors.
Full 3inch exhaust with 2 resonators and a muffler.
Excedy 5puk clutch
Weld in half cage.
Bilsteins
v8 roadster frame rails.
MS2 PnP

Since then:
Black hardtop.
Hawk DTC-60 race pads.
Yellowspeed Premium Comp coilovers with 12/8kg springs.
Sparco Sprint seat on custom floor mounts.

Out for a cruise with the top down


Engine/turbo


Dyno Sheet

Sparco chair





Since then ive added a hardtop, 15x8 advanti storms, hawk dtc-60 pads for the track, yellowspeed premium comp coilovers with 12/8kg springs and a sparco sprint bucket seat/harnesses for the track.

Welcome to the forum. Beware the dust of the DTC-60s on your wheels.

Yah, too late....

Hoping going easy with a scotch Brite or something might re move the metal deposits that are stick to the surface in places. Probably should have listened to the dude when he told me not to use them on the street for daily driving. Whoops
