So yeah, turbo is out... Just gotta plug an oil return hole in oil pan and fit new exhaust, headers, etc.

... Jaykay. I'd rather drive a Volvo on the track than not drive on the track at all, which is where I sit.

I'll pass it on to her that a bunch of teenage goons on the MT forum want to see her picture. riiiiight.

It doesn't matter what she looks like, she flogs the Miata around the track, that's the important thing.

Hey Kyle, I just picked up a 97 850 Volvo for my wife too, but sadly, high gas prices and an inability to keep myself from modding stuff mandated an NA. Mine would have been even slower around the track.
