Default Black Widebody Turbo'd Miata (56K..Need not apply)

As mentioned in another post....

I'm sure that many people have seen this car before and these pics have been around for a year or 2, some maybe longer than that. I don't know the particulars of his setup, but I remember reading a while back that he has or had around 250-260 whp. Not a lot of power but you don't need a to drift I guess.

I'd like to see what he did with his radiator. I like that Vmount setup though, damn. I just got in my new intercooler and if I could get away with a V mount that'd be an idea. And who's hood is that? Anyone know?

I have more pictures of his car if you want. I snagged all I could find when I saw the vmount, it was the first miata one I found after I decided on that route and started doing some homework.

I'll host them now... i'll link them here soon.

apexi stud: 250-260 whp in a miata is scary fast and plenty of power to drift let alone enough to smoke just about any car out there.

Now that is one sick looking car! The V-Mount is very trick, but that huge *** aluminum air director.. I dunno it just looks out of place. It looks like an FM kit, beyond the IC. I think it could have been done a bit nice, the couplers are really being streched and he using worm gears for clamps..Absolutely beautiful exterior!

Oh yeah, I definitaley understand that it is plenty. The first Miata I ever drove way a White 91 with are FMII kit on it way bak in Summer of 2000. Damn that thign hauled ****. I've been bitten with boost ever since, but have had my priorities/money in other area so I have been able to buy the new FMII kit.

Yeah these have been out for a while, but it is still new for some, old news for others. Either way, it's still great to look at.

Thanks for that link Splitime...I amazing to see how much of the bumper he decided to cut away for more efficient air flow.

Ya thats him, he doesn't ever really post though. I refered him here from cr.net because he had some turbo related questions a few month back.

That's cause you're a homo. When are you painting your car pink?
