Default My Miata is slow and handles like crap

Well, I have completed removing everything that I sweat and bled over.

The car is now NA, on stock shocks and stock sways.

It sucks, but more motivation to get the V8 car done.

It still has the ACT clutch in it, as I didn't have any takers and I really didn't want to pull the tranny after everything that I went through in the last two days.

I must have remembered how everything came off originally. It fired right up like nothing had ever changed.

Just wanted to vent.

Welcome to my reality. I live with it every day... for the last 2 years or more.

I thought I could handle having an NA miata after working with turbo hardware so much and I didn't want to deal with it on a daily. The car is getting an LS1 now. It was way too slow.

I thought that too... for about the first 2 days I drove it. I've gone more than two years with no boost, so I have been having some major withdrawals.

Yeah, it's actually a .gif of the cat rubbing one out, but I can't get it to load. Click on thumbnail to see.

I had my turbo off for a couple months a year ago. Got a speeding ticket the day AFTER I took the turbo off.
