Would be better if it was a few inches shorter.

anyone notice that 600hp miata has a stock radiator, no coolant reroute and stock coils? makes me wonder why I bought my mishimoto radiator and why I'm pondering a reroute or COPs.

Local guy, badass car. Custom T3 with progressive water and an AEM. It's an Axis trunk and bad as **** in real life. (the green one).

The black car has a stock radiator because it's only stressed for 10 seconds at a time. He's on LS coils now, IIRC.

The green car is actually for sale.

I never take that car out when its really hot so the factory rad worked fine.I recently installed the koyo and it seems to be cooler now...that coolant reroute is a joke...and the factory 95 coils were very impressive to at least 30psi with gaps at .014
BTW: that vette was an 07 with twin mount turbos dynoed 605whp at the vette doctors a week earlier...we figured it ran roughly 132-134 trap speeds with a passenger..compared to the miata that traps at least mid 140s so theres the difference from a 40mph roll race...I hate roll races..lol

it looks like Helen Keller did this ultra-clean install:



Does anyone know if that queen with the BRG tracks his car...and if the hood actually works?

That is an amazing miata. I like the trunk lid too, though it might draw a little too much attention. Probably not any more than my spoiler though.

too big?






For some odd reason, I like this... reminds me of a Porsche GT3 wing...




AutoEXE makes this one...



And for fun, looks like someone fitted the RX-7 Bathurst wing on a Miata...

hopefully it works because I have to trim a vent so it fits, where I'll then test.
