Default Lime's 94 B6 swap TRP Miata.

The story being this Miata started with a monster turbo setup had the 1.8L. It was removed and a B6 found its way in the engine bay. I put it together and tune by turbo ric back in 2006 the owner sold it to a person I knew and when it would break down nothing major. I would always be the one to fix it. To make a long story short in 2010 the other owner decided to sell it I thought the price was right and now I have my hands on it. Little did I know that I never thought I own that crazy Miata.

I have my own TRP Mazda MX-3 so in not new to power and speed. For years my MX-3 and that Miata had a feud on which Mazda is faster. Doesn't matter now I own both of them. This Miata is on youtube racing a STI beat the hell out of it.

The year on the pic is wrong suppose to be 2010 in case a good eye catches the flaw.

Here are the spec on the Miata.

94 Miata 1.6L stock internal B6 swap, Electromotive TEC III Standalone, 8,000RPM rev Limit, Custom Turbo Manifold, 720cc Injectors, Custom Fuel Rail, Universal FPR, MSD 8.5MM Wires, NGK V-Power #8, 57 Trim, 3 in. DownPipe, Tial WG, Greddy BOV, 350HP PT FMIC, 2in Intercooler Piping, Extreme ACT Clutch, Alm. Flywheel, MS Diff, , Autometer, BF Drag Radials. With a BP drive train. HKS Boost Controller low boost 15psi, high boost 22psi yeah i know im crazy go big or go home has serve me well.

Well I got a few parts replaced like the hood that flew back. I forgot to put the hood pins back on by mistake. Thank goodness I wasn't driving too fast. Hood pins were removed, the hood latch was reinstalled, and the hood cable was reinstalled as well. I also installed a used black hood. A/C vents were installed too. I also got my 3in exhaust redone to run with a side exhaust exist. My Miata has a few missing parts that I've been finding little by little. I'll post pictures of the side exist exhaust soon.

Is English your first language? What happened to your bumper?

i wanted to point out that there's an alarming possibility that you may be running both of your BPs without air filters...

I'll say yes, it is. He just doesn't put much effort into editing.

Here is the side exhaust. I just have to paint it black. I didn't like the aluminum paint. It is a MagnaFlow muffler with 3 inch exhaust piping.

What is there to be alarmed for? I have one BP'd mx-3 and one B6 Miata. They are not daily driven so I see no reason to use an air filter. Nor are they driven on rainy days, just when the weather is good enough. Plus I do not drive them too far.

Yes it is. I am just not a good typist. I am working on it though.

A bigger intercooler was mounted in the front from the previous owner. That is the reason why the front bumper has a huge cut out. I installed a smaller intercooler and I just haven't found a front bumper to replace it with.

Your lack of respect for the English language is torturous and depraved. Imagine the English language is a tender young cabana boy named Felipe for a moment. You are the traveling, lonely, sexually frustrated businessman named Jorge. One day you meet Felipe and begin to earn his trust. You learn a little about him, how he came to work the cabana, how he sends money back home to his family, which just enough to take advantage of him. Then one day you take Felipe, and in an attempt to serve your own selfish desires you rape him. You violate him. You turn Felipe's anus into a playground of blood, feces, and tears. After what you've done to Felipe, he will never be the same. He will never trust again. Never love again.

Where do I state my lack of respect for the English language. As a matter of fact I hate when a person who just met me assumes I don't speak the English language. They are surprised I speak English only. Some Hispanic people ask why I don't speak Spanish in there native tongue. My reply is that English is all I know. I understand a little Spanish, but I don't live in Mexico. There is no need for me to speak it. But you assume I have a lack of respect for the English language. Its all good though. I don't know what to say about your little story. Grammar wasn't my strong point, but I'll see what I can do to stop this grammar madness.

Lime, the stock valvetrain on a b6 won't take 8k rpm abuse for long.

What's funny is his speeling is pretty darn good. The grammer is horrendous though.

I can't understand anything he is saying. Hopefully he never needs any technical help from us.
