Default SpeedHunters write-up on our K series Miata

Mods, feel free to move if this is not in the right category.

I thought you guys would get a kick out of it:
The Miata You Wish You Built - Speedhunters

Can't wait to shake it down with the new power and aero. Plus now it looks like one of those fancy show cars that the kids like.

Yes, he said the car has A/C. It doesn't... well, not yet.

hmmm cool and original swap for that it is a ten out of ten but why not go all out when you swap and get a Three rotor? There are swap kits after all and they are raced proven. On top of that is revs higher and makes more hp and I'm guessing it would wiegh about the same if not lighter because of the rotors and it being N/A + theres a better sound with a three rotor... Just saying but my opinion though.

Well?!?!? Why did you not do a 3 rotor?!?!

Also why would you read the comments at SH? Why would you do that to yourself? Oh wait you still mod ClubRoadster? Never mind, that explains everything.

If my car was that awesome I would seriously just pop the hood and look at it in the garage after work. Just sit there.

Sidenote: That Washer bottle is a turd in there and something must be done. At least scrub it down. Its like having a slice of spam on the same plate with a $60 steak.

I need more money.

You mean coolant overflow?

Yeah, a nice aluminum unit would look much better.

Here are top comments at all times on this swap:
1) you can make that much power with a turbo
2) V8 swaps make more power
3) Rotaries are cooler and make cool sounds
4) Hondas suck

It gives the track dudes a good laugh at least.

Yeah, its on my list. The car looks so nice now compared to before, I hardly notice it.

I had the front end repainted, clay bar'd the whole car, two polishes, wax, and I used fancy towels too. Even powdercoated the valve cover. I stopped short of adding 10 degrees more camber and putting some 165s on my wheels.
