Default My Miata's Back

Well I got the miata back and its up and running. Engine is running strong as hell with the newly built bottom end. First thing I did was install my newly painted Kosei's that I did a few months ago. I didn't get around to making the new intake pipe yet, but I should get that done today. Here's a few pics from my camera phone (samsung u740). You can see the comparison of the wheels.. as well as the engine bay as it currently stands.

Well I'll take the axle back and take it to an exhaust shop maybe next week. Is there any good custom exhaust shops around?

Whitey's? Hmm.

Are you KIDDING ME? I thought the shop that made me a "custom hammered" pipe with a welded OPEN wastegate arm was the place to go.
