I've had 3 dsm's. All eclipses though, 91,93,97. In my opinion the first generation 90-94 is a better car, just more solid. They're just like any other car if you take care of them they won't let you down, none of mine ever broke. the 97 had some annoying things happen though but my 91 GSX that had close to 400hp never broke anything except the original turbo and clutch.

I would say the stock greddy kit on a miata puts it close to the 2g dsm in speed.

time will tell about the talon but it seems like a more sturdy and trustworthy then my miata was truthfully i was kinda scared to drive the miata because it felt like i was trapped in a tin can, then again Im 6'3 200 pounds kinda big for a miata.

i know people are amazed that i do it at 5' 10 225 lbs the 10-12% bodyfat helps though. it is all in what you like i like to feel at one with the car it gives me a feeling of more control plus it is nice not needing a jack or tow truck to move the car.

The funniest thing I ever heard was that there are only so many dsms running at a time. When one gets fixed, somewhere else, another breaks.

The Sh**ty thing about them is everything is twice as heavy as it needs to be.

For Miata-99, on a stock car, the best mod is a MBC. Do your research on the safe number. Some say exhaust first. Fine, but then you'll have everyone who thinks they have a fast car messing with you on the street. Everyone loves to challenge DSMs (see first line).

If you want to build your car "right," DSMlink is your first purchase. Just save the money and do it. http://www.dsmlink.com

Have fun.

it depends on how you drive it and how safe you are about it, I never plan on racing it maybe see what it can do through one gear here and there but thats it the first thing im doing is the apexi S-AFC mbc and a 255 fuel pump, clutch, and intake. That will all come to 800 inluding labor. I know im at a miata forum and I shouldnt say this but i like my tsi so much better then my miata, and if you bought a 4500 dollar tsi and then a 4500 dollar miata you could put say 1k into it and the miata would be toast after first gear.

I dont think so. I got my miata from a friend for 4300 with the greddy setup. Now i have put in about $300 and I think I would own your tsi. For sure after next week when im at 12PSI. So for 4600 I have a LOW 13 second car (at 12psi)

Try to find a 10-12 Psi Miata around you with someone who can drive and race them. Let us know how that works. I raced a tallon form like a 35 roll in 2ed and pulled him by about 3 cars befor I hit 70. Not saying your car is slow or mine is fast, just saying. As far as stock for stock, yes the tsi is faster.

12psi on a 1.6 will net you a 12second pass??? I was hoping to hit a high 13 with my car, maybe I'm underestimating it.

I think at 12 PSI with an emanage and a good tune you will be at low 13's. Oh and good tires.

well, with 550 crank HP and a 3800lb car with MUCH bigger tires I'd be lucky to crack 12's at this altitude....
