Ive got an NB with N/A mods and racing seats, sounds like CR to me.
*Bullet to the brain*


On another note, I discovered that a rubber mallet is required to install an OBX header on an NB...

The boost is safely contained in a series of cardboard boxes, ready to be exchanged for money with members of MTnet.
First, I must take photographs.

Ugh... nice N/A headers look so nice. So much better than a turbo... so much more room and reduced complexity...

Simplify and add lightness constantly fights me for the desire for power.

Edit: Wtf is up with the radiator mount?

All machismo aside...

Really, is it more fun to drive it N/A or boosted?

I just drove my buddies na, boosted is 10000 times better, I take it you have never driven one, I also notice that your previous posts suggest you might be doubting turbo superiority. Your desires to go NA are misguided, you should actually buy the op's turbo ****. But if you want to look into turbo money, without the turbo go, look no further.

You take it wrong. My last Miata had 250whp. That's the last Miata of the four that i've owned so far.

N/A and turbo have their fun. Driving 250whp in a 2100lb car with 225 NT-01 in the canyons nearby was intense, but i couldn't sanely push near limits. Not as much fun, honestly, as my little stock 1.6 that i can just flog to no end around curves.

Beyond that, keeping a momentum car for the track makes one a better driver in the end.

But yeah, if you live your life a quarter mile at a time, have the money for a kickin system in your hidden nitrous turbo omg FD, N/A is misguided.

Just poor, learning, and like curves... and still going turbo. Look in my build thread for the first piece of ARTech work done for me. :P

Boosted. While my car has been down, I've been driving a I/H/E 94 base....it's fun to joke around with going WOT and not breaking all state speed limits in 7 seconds....but right foot is getting tired of not being rewarded for it's hard work.
