Default Honda owner here...

Hi guys,
I've done the turbo honda thing for a while now and lately have been considering starting up a turbo miata project, so i'll be lurking around for the next couple of months searching and asking noob questions.

Heres my car:


The red is 3rd gear (3rd kept spinning on the dyno)
Blue is 4th gear.
This was done on 23-25psi. I think the .48 might possibly be maxed out.

93 Del Sol
1.6 sohc
Semi-built w/ Suzuki Vitara pistons
t3/t4 50trim .48a/r
Devil's Own alky kit
Tuned on Crome Fuel mangement

I'm located in the NorthWest and might even consider a trade for a turbo miata if it was the right car, holla at me!

I used to live in Colville before I came into the Navy. Loved it up there too, got a little cold during the winter though.

I wish all Del Sol owners would get rid of their cars.

I think that's a good looking del sol- too bad that IC can't be tucked away, back in the mouth. Nice numbers too- sohc damn! Though I have to ask about the pic of the car with the hood up and coolant in front- that doesn't look good.
