Very nice build...heavy budget, out of my league.
What did you spend on parts and labor?
Also, that hood spacer is not helping cool your motor, you are better off without it.
Keep it up.
And stop the gheyness.

Judging by the pics maybe he lives at home? My miata would be 500hp if I live at home too. Nice build. Whole car looks well conceived except for those hood risers.

The motor is obviously a piece of work... nice job.

I do have some constructive advice.
#1: That filter is done. It's collapsed under whatever power you were previously running and is a serious restriction when it does collapse. You need new filter badly.
#2: Coolant reroute?
#3: Stock plastic radiator?

That radiator will not support the cooling requirements of 350whp... and you will regret not doing a coolant re-route when you do swap to the new radiator. I would go so far as to say that this is not optional on that motor.

At 19, I lived at home and was happy blowing my money on blow and hookers, let the kid enjoy it...when he moves out on his own he will drive beaters like we do.

Zabac,

If you were paying for hookers at 19 it explains your Mr. Bean av. He's your idol! Even the fat chess club kids can get some at 19 without having to pay for it, particularly if they have blow.
