Default BFF Miata Build! Bracing! Turbo! Drift? Auto-x? LETS DO IT ALL!

hey guys, this is my 95 M edition.

stock:





well, this is how i ended up with this car!

my friend bought it from an older man, its been sitting on grass/gravel for awhile. so the day we drove it home, the rotors and brakes were rusted.

I had to drive it home for him since he couldn't drive a 5sp all to well.

a couple weeks of him owning it, he took it to my dad's shop and i did a couple things to it.

timing belt, water pump, valve cover gasket, tune-up, brembo oem pads and rotors, rim and tires, and coil overs.

well he drove the car for a little less than a year before i decided i wanted to try and boost a car... up until this time I've only rebuilt turbos on a couple volvos and fixed a couple turbo diesels hot/cold pipes.

i was looking at a couple miatas but he called me and told me he would sell me his, and i couldn't pass up that because, well, i knew what was already done and how he drove. soooo, that's how i ended up with this miata!

i got the car back in, i think, early august.



I am uploading pics to Photobucket as im typing so ill update you guys in a couple minutes!


Edit:

here is how it sat for a couple months before boosting it












after turbo build!

i just did it to make the car look alittle better and to fit the side skirt diffusers.


im planning on taking the car to my friends body shop, he said he'll just cut it all out anyways and do it right, before it gets painted

okay, a couple days after getting the shipment ive been waiting on for the longest, me and my best bro finally finished a couple things at the shop, so we could use the mini lift at night!

first night!





the build took less than 6 days, working on it about 2-4 hours a night.

I'll let the pics do the rest

the longest time spent was on how to route the hot and cold pipes and mounting the intercooler!

since i still have A/C and P/S, i couldn't route it the way i saw begi and a couple other builds on here... so we cut and torched some metal out of the way!








tapped the gm open element into the coldside of the intercooler.

i also bought an 2.5'' cat back exhuast, i already deleted the cat.

Beluga Racing Mazda Miata 1990 1997 MX 5 1 6L 1 8L Performance Catback Exhaust | eBay

it was supposed to be a direct fit, but you know how anything aftermarket never fits right. i had to space the bracing, cut the exhaust and extend the part by the axle to keep if from notching up and destroying it.









spaced the bracing
