Default Ride today...

So the car been turbo for a few months and I have taken it to compete in 4 auto-x's and always runs great. Its awesome on the cones, sometimes literally. Its been to a 1/4 mile track and made 10 passes best of 13.7 @ 102. Gets on average 22mpg and looks and sounds great.

Today I took the GF and went for a spirited drive ended up 2 hours later somewhere in NC in the sticks, stoped for gas and drove it another 1.5 hours home. Its the 1st long drive the car had been on since the build. It ran great!

I just totally amazed that this 16 year old car with 160K on it, a home brew used turbo kit, used suspension, used brakes, used torsen, and a homemade standalone (thanks Brain) can be this reliable. I'd drive it anywhere.

Thanks Miata Turbo for all your help in this project!

I made my first 75 mile trip this past weekend in my car and am still amazed it runs as well as it does, if it weren't for this forum im sure alot of us wouldnt have the cars we do. I thank everyone for all the support that each and every person put into this site too!
