Affordable is relative. $1k for Miata rims is insane.

I've got 2 extra sets of rims for my otm, each was over $1k, but on a nearly $60k car.

Kegorator and maybe an alignment rack...

Oh, for the car Suspension upgrade--still deciding, paint the front bumper (still sanding) maybe throw in the act clutch that's been on the shelf...

Then there's the MX3 and P5--- a lot longer lists saving for college, retirement, finishing up another degree--all while maintaining 2 cases of beer a week

My electrical system is fried. Got the dash out now tracking down burnt wires and gremlins.

Plans:
-DO WI
-IC spray (water)
-stickier tires for drag racing
-buy a better camcorder and hook it up to my new camera mounts
on rollbar (record some much requested BOV sounds for you guys)
-redo control panel (car has very no stock control stuff like turn
signal stalk left - mounted everything in place of radio surround)
-DIY catch can install

I'm trying to be optimistic and think I'll get it turboed in the next 12 months, but in all reality I'll probably just continue to accrue parts when I can. In the next 12 months I hope to get a house (and thus a garage) and pick up a leftover 07 MS6 so the Miata is not a DD and I can have it on jackstands for a while during the install and inevitable ******* up. Hopefully the Miata will be running 250-300whp in 16-18 mos. Delayed gratification FTL. Smart financial decisions FTW.

Fresh paint, tune with more boost, maybe new wheels, then sell the car.

I don't know yet, maybe bmw, I really have no idea, I'd love to have an evo but can't really afford one. Might get some luxury vehicle

If someone wants to buy my car, give me an offer.

My list in no particular order:

-Figure out why my autotune and WBO2 don't agree on how rich/lean the car is running
-BOV
-raise boost from 4psi to 8 or 10psi
-torsen
-Simpson Design short rear bumper
-start putting together a WI setup
-corner weight and realign the car
-remind Steelrat that his car is slow :gay:

I'm sure that there are more things that will come up too...

Why would you do all that and then sell? You know you'll lose money...
