Default My coldside is more ghetto than yours!

My hotside is the ****... one pipe.
My coldside is also the ****... literally. It's the only thing on the car that I'm not proud of. But it's 100% effective, works perfect. I can't complain about the results. My next Miata will not look like this.

the florescent green zip ties are really the icing on the cake.

All you need is a duct tape wrap for the true ghetto win.

Thanks for the laugh, I needed it. As long as it works, who cares. I second the duct tape, to cover up the zip ties.

zip ties = not ghetto
random wires tied together instead of zip ties = true ghetto

Intake Air bypass under the TB.

You know, if you had brazed all that stuff instead of using JB weld you'd be able to jut powder coat over the top and it would look fine.
