that carhas a ghetto ricer body kit and its never been beaten on? I have some ocean front property for you...in Arizona of course. That car can easily be pieced together for the same price, in a car that's not ruined with a body kit.

I i like the front end. But if it wasnt done by a girl it woulda been better girls never do maintenance right. Guys beat up cars but atleast they change the oil.

I don't know! I don't think I like the idea of the intake to the Turbo being open and ready to suck anything and everything right into the blades.

Tequila? That's a bottle of cologne... Curve to be specific.

I don't like the idea of buying someone else's go-fast project. Especially when it seems like they've made some poor decisions, like not using a 90* fitting at the oil feed and running the turbo open. I mean, the guy/gal can't even clean the car up for pics, what's to make me believe he took care of it before?

why do you guys think its running open element? there is a filter sitting the cabin, looks like it was off at picture time... nbd you cant remove the afm with a safc2... and why do you think it was a girl? and why would that matter? am I missing the jokes?

though agreed I dont like the idea of buying someone elses tuning mistakes... like the breather setup,

Look at the underhood. Needs a little tweeking I'd say. One bad idea after the next. What's with the filter sitting in a box in the car? At least put it on for the picture

The open turbo intake, the big dumb wheels, the body kit, the women driver...

I wouldn't touch it with a 30 foot pole.

no more ranting on philli[p, I don't give a honest flying chicken **** about most things anymore... and Im back in the gym so theres my routine anger managerment, If im pissed I'll take it out on my body in the gym and forget about it(Im not saying hurt myself ethier)

anyways, I actually saw and drove the car in person today.....I liked it better looking at it than driving it. alot of parts were choosen wrongly, I would not drive daily, wheels are too big and bulky, After seeing the kit in person I would choose oem over aftermarket anyday, I believe theres a boost leak in the intercooler plumbing but could not find it, the car is loud but bearable, I liked the seats and the way his interior was put toghether, nice and clean(better than the pics) , the guages all worked(at times there were some boost spikes while driving, there was a strong smell of gas, lets see...what I liked is the car is quick, the creativity put into the kit(appreciated first person) , but among other things I would want to change alot of things, and redo some as well, as far as the price goes....I would'nt pay that much for a semi-ok turbo miata(this guy claims not to be a street racer,but I honestly don't believe that notion) maybe 3,500 to 4,000 I liked it , but not enough to buy it

Is that his shoe in the picture?:gay:

What happend to the KOYO?

I like the glove box.


Does anyone know if I can get that cold air intake for the greddy, If you suck the air from the cabin with the a/c on you could lower your intake temps wait I forgot the vents are plugged

Oh and why would you swap out the dash?
