Thought I get the spec's out of the way fun Miata to drive and just making it faster. Well straight to pictures hope you all enjoy. Hello to the San Antonio Miata's.

To get the front bumper ? out of the way the P.O. had a larger intercooler. When I got it I put a smaller intercooler just haven't found a replacement bumper.

In his defense, he's a junkyard patron. He just finds a bp, tosses it in, and sees how long it'll last.

Maybe this time around he will take my advice and rebuild that B6 to take more abuse than usual. Surprisingly, "that" stock B6 has taken quite some punishment. All of us are just waiting for that thing to go boom.

True. The primary rev limiter is set to 8k rpms, but my datalogs show maybe around 72-7600 rpms on most pulls.

22 psi + 8000 rpm + stock bottom end + drag radials = me being in for pics of carnage. It's ok, I'll wait.

I'll help him work on his car, but I won't drive it. Its too rough for me. Even though he asks me to drive it, I say no. And I am the younger brother.

He is not internet savy, stuck on "txt" message mode, and he is quite an impatient guy. I'm working with him to type out his post properly. My brother speaks English perfectly, just not through a keyboard.

Get your ready. He has been trying to. And I've got the camera ready for when it does. Besides it'll give him a good reason to finally "build" and engine for boost rather than slap one on from a junkyard.


As for the bumper, we are looking around for a decent one. All the ones we find are in bad condition.
