Make sure you replace the motor mounts. The dyno videos of those where the motor is trying to escape the engine bay are pretty funny.

Someone should post a link to this thread on the SRT forums, they'd go nuts.

My car does that minus the backfiring.

Nothing special.

What if one of those Miata forum members owned one and also called it gay? That would be worse.

But honestly I hate 90% of FWD cars. But if I to pick the one I hate the most, it would be a Mitsubishi Eclipse, then a Neon.

I was going to get matching plates ("OMG MX5" and "OMG GTR"), then decided I catch enough flack for owning the cars in the first place, lol.

Ugh... Thats the single worst part about that car... The syphilis clap it has on decel. Makes me want to vomit everytime I hear it.

Don't forget about the terrible factory brakes..

1g DSMs are okay, and a select few 2gs... aside the fact they look like squished jelly beans... The She-Clipse 3/4gs are hella gay. The GT owners always seem to think they've got 6 second street cars too. ******* priceless.

I had a turbo miata, 323GTX and my mom had a cx7 all a the same time. We had RWD TRBO , 4wd TRBO, and FWD TRBO all in the driveway at the same time

By the time I'm done every motor vehicle in my driveway will be turbocharged.

Sig indicates a Crotch Rocket, Front engine/Rear Drive, Front engine Front drive, Front engine AWD. Currently one is turbo, in a few weeks 2, hopefully two months 3.. The Protege is going to take the longest, its my DD.

Odd.. All are four cylinders. 0.6 Liters, 1.8 Liters, 1.8 Liters, 2.3 Liters..

Neons are like rc cars... fast but made almost entirely of plastic.


-1 on the MS3 though, MKV GTi all the way, I'd sacrifice a little bit of speed for a much better cabin on a DD.

Oh and KPLAFIN, how did you like your 323gtx? My friend is looking to buy one right now.

Um....it uh...well.....it...how can i say this....um...it started once, LOL. Only reason it had plates on it was for the FWD, RWD, 4WD trbo thing...was a project I never got around to essentially. I've got a friend with one though and I love driving it, not ***** to the wall fast but for it age and body it hods its own speed and handling wise.
