Head lights are going back in. Removed to help my fingers get to the small places below them for cleaning.

I more than learned my lesson on that build. I hate body work. I shouldn't even wash my car. Anyway, build threads are so last year.

Interesting to watch Koto's Miata being completely redone. Makes me wonder why you didn't start with a clean, stock '94?

Not that I'm complaining, mind you. BEGI downpipe is going to work well for me.

Because it's not really being completely redone. Most of the real work done to this car was not engine stuff in my opinion. The brakes/suspension are set up beautifully. The turbo/engine just an added benefit. The MSPNP would have gotten the job done but I'm trying to learn more which is why I put in the MS3x.

because what ******* would want a 1.8L, better brakes, better clutch, better diff, and better chassis stiffening, a second airbag, better prop valve, and hair on your chest?

The ONLY thing that you mentioned that a stock 94' would have over my car is a 1.8L (which is much slower than a turbo 1.6). I have wilwood bbk front and sport rear brakes, FM happy meal, 4.10 Clutch Diff (and 3.909 torsen fwiw), roll bar and door bars, LOL air bag?, and the brake bias is absolutely perfect.

This car literally has the best feeling and predictable brakes I have ever felt. I almost crashed my 02 SE after driving this car because of how terrible the 02s brakes were in comparison.

Airbags are for the weak. I prefer to use them for practical jokes. I guess the 1.8 chassis will allow you to claim one more victim.

I knew all this, that's why it was funny.

anyways, dump the clutch diff for the torsen STAT.

This round of upgrades won't get the torsen. Unless I'm stuck waiting on parts for something else and feeling frisky.
