Im not sure that NB was even available in BRG.... But I really miss my BRG Miata for cruising around (which is why I mentioned brg)... even though it was a total pain to drive with the solid hub clutch.

This is the FMII 2000 SE that was in the FS section.

I really dislike the red car so I'm going to pull all the good stuff off of it and sell it.

FMII and Link will likely be pulled off of this car (well the Link will DEFINITELY be pulled out).

Head from 2000 will go on built bottom end.

All the plans are belong to limbo right now, but for sure I'll be selling the red car cuz I have hate for it.

Needs a bit more bodywork than I was expecting and third gear is pretty crunchy. I'm hoping a shifter rebuild and some unicorn trams fluid can improve it.

All in all a decent deal but not amazing. I know Tom (golddigger) felt like he was giving it away at the price I paid but the car definitely needs some work.

Now I want an NB2 front end and some better headlights.

For now I'm going to fix the manifold studs and just drive it. I need to sell the NA before I tear into this car at all.

Also, need to PM Reverant for an MS3 ASAP...

And when they DO make a strong trans, it shifts like ****. (H-Type)

So assuming the NB will get the EFR, built motor and id1000s and will hopefully make ~350hp AND that it will be a fun street car and not a serious track car:

Then,

4.3 Torsen II

Or

4.1 Torsen I

???

Someone has it out for me recently... I went from +60 props a few weeks ago to -7 this morning. Apparently someone came in here to neg prop all my recent posts.

Oh well, apparently I really offended a 949 racing fanboi with my most recent trolling and they've made it their mission to tarnish my "props".

Single tear.


Anyway, so neither is what you're saying?

350whp, 6spd, and a 4.1 or 4.3? You're insane. **** that. **** that right in the ear.

They both suck. I have a 3.9 with a 6 and think its way too short.

on my gt2860 setup on the '00 with a 4.1 and 6sp I couldn't even hit target boost in 1st gear it was so short

I could see a 6spd/4.1 "working" if you wanted to oversize your turbo a little and spin the ****** to 8500rpms or so. Could be fun.
