I'd say it is pretty inoffensive for a spoiler. I would never call that a wing though...

Man, that intercooler looks aggressive. How did you get it so far forward? Cut all the structure out of the mouth?

He just needs to work it more like this. Everyone talks about radiator restriction, this pretty much pwns all the others huge FMICs i've seen on miatas.

Pretty sure he made the 500hp he wanted with the new fuel setup.
Only time he gets on here is when he wants to show his new accomplishments and whatnot so I guess he hasn't hit 550 yet.

he's a dallas local, but I've never met the guy. I'd like to see how hard that thing leaves.

this is about the best pic i could find that shows how i got it forward...



i had to cut the bumper quite a bit to get the bottom of it to not hit to get the bumper to fit right.

paint will follow the windsheild frame layout. black on white. i sprayed the chassis with a compressor that could only make like 5 cfm at 40 psi where i should accually be running about 11-14 cfm at 40psi so i had to it charge or the gun would spit and it was just awful. so i am waiting to get a new compressor before i paint the rest of teh body. already got all the paint from doing teh chassis and gun so i just need to do somebody work and get a new compressor, but like i said, its whats on the inside that matters.
