Super sleeper! stock looking but a beast under the hood. It was faster then my basic greddy set up. anyways..In april, i got the 200sx painted and three days later i crashed it into a guard rail. (worst day) It was all my fault. Wet roads, bald tires, wasnt being careful enough.

So just a couple of weeks ago i bought my previous miata back. I kept most of my parts when i sold it and saved them just in case i were to get another miata one day. So i started putting everything back together. Nothing Special but it was fun. Mounted the intercooler a two days ago. And took some pictures.
*Hope You enjoy*

Did you do a full bluebird swap on the 200sx or was it just the stock sr20? Stock = slow, bluebird + more boost = amazing. I installed one in a car and was amazed how quick that stupid thing was.

Naw. It was sr20. Fastest time was 14.2 all motor. I was satisfied. I was getting a nittrious kit together before i crashed it but. I never got to try it out.

The **** IT IS....

A local here has a stock SR20 200sx with a hack-job setup running 12psi. He puts 6 - 8 cars on low 13 second cars... Spinning the tires through all of first, second, and half of third. That car is a fscking rocket ship and I'll get some video next weekend to prove it...

I think theres a lot of potential in the sr20 too. The stock internals can take a good amount of boost. From what i read when i did some research
