The up side is you know how messed up this car is, and can start working on un-doing all the stupidity right away vs finding out the hard way later.

You mean everything right? More or less all of its being redone because its all stupid(ill just reuse some stuff like the silicone hoses and braided lines)


Only good thing is i traded him a vehicle worth 1k... Ok the seat and wheel have to give the miata some credit

EWWW THAT REAR WHEEL!

Also, get a real exhaust soon, that super restrictive 1-1/2" stock cat back is killing power, that tip also looks mexicanish.

Probably going to just take over the kids thread lmao


All wheels have to go(even the bbs).. based off width and diameter, no need to get me started about looks hahaha last thing on my mind

It actually has matching sized pipe all the way back off the downpipe(2.5" by the looks but could he 2.25) With no cat or muffler etc. Sounds pretty decent just isn't to my taste or welding quality/pipe routing could alittle more tucked an less sections aswell


Basically i need to let my OCD run wild once I've redone all his work and got a proper ems

My bad should have been alittle less vague with that answer, cutting the Exhaust out from around mid car and redoing out the driver side for clearance reasons and alittle aesthetic aswell- I've always been a fan of a slightly angled raw pipe "tip"

All the work he did must be redone, wiring, welding, Fab etc
