Allast, I am a ******* though. This Miata is pretty mint. It sat last winter and it just killed me. I'll probably DD a Miata in the winter as long as possible. We've gotten 16" in the last week and not an issue yet. I don't know how people can sit on such a fun car. It killed me when it was NA, no chance now.
I do have a $3 water spray booth on my way to work that i throw money at all winter too though.
I enjoyed all 16 inches. But I used the subaru even though my miata has much cancer, mainly because the miata is taking up an entire 24x24 garage by itself, and my tire choices are corded 275 hoosiers on 15x10, niceish rs3s on 15x9s or shitty rs3s on 15x7.5s, or I guess I could steal the wheels off my dads miata and have DZ101s on stock wheels. Not exactly snow worthy.

If I had a garage I would end up tearing it apart every winter I'm sure.

Few Pics.

first roll out. It's now turbo and cross-pollinated!


One ground point for everything ever. Why did I not know that.... It works now.


$5 Ebay boot works fantastic. I hated the stick white stitching.



This is the divider they put in by mistake and left me to cut it out with solely tears and rage.

That sure is a clean car for NH. I think you need a Subie for the snow.

Too bad about BEGI customer non-service. It's good to know. I've got a buddy looking for a turbo kit . . . I told him to contact Abe. I'll reaffirm that advice.

Why did you remove the divider? Isn't that desirable?

Thanks. It still has under 52k on it! Is Abe ARTech fab? If so, sound advice. That guy makes some silly nice stuff. Had I known what I do now... ARTech would be my only choice for anything new.

Yea, the divider keeps the exhaust gases separate but the cast DP I used from Flyin' Miata has this divider already. BEGI knew I wasn't going to use it per request. They also wouldn't just not sell me the DP without the numbers getting "fuzzy". Was cheaper to just sell it on the cheap "second-hand".

Abe = ARTech.

Gotcha on the divider. BTW, nice job. As soon as you're able to make boost, you'll be making POWAH!

Yikes... Glad I didn't go with Begi. Artech took a few months, but I was in no rush and he was in constant communication whenever I wanted an update or had a question. At least you have your car together. Now all you can do is put your experiences out there for others to base their purchase decisions on! Car looks good!!!

Pictures = GOOD!

That number plate is huge though, can you get a smaller one or relocate it, it's blocking a lot of air.

Only losers run front plates in NH, keep it behind the passenger's seat, say it fell off the other day and you were going to put it back on.

Wow, that is a super clean car, swirly paint or not.

Keep it out of the salt! That's why you have a sh*tty truck, right? Keep the miata clean...there's enough rotted ones north of the Mason Dixon line already

That's how business should be done. If I want the fancy sandwich at lunch, I know I have to wait a couple extra minutes. Not a couple extra hours.

Thanks. The plate really isn't holding the car back any at this point. I will be relocating it come turbo swap. I'm really trying to keep a stock appearance aside from wheels and ride height though.
