Default Turbo Miata in Atlanta, in Modified Magazine

Reading my latest issue of Modified mag on the can this evening(started receiving it when SCC went under), and I find a decent article on a 94 turbo miata in Atlanta, by way of Brooklyn. The owners name is Sal, is he a resident here? Other than the Miataroadster hood risers(let the flaming begin), looks like a nice car.

I actually met him the night of the photoshoot at a gas station up the street from my house and have talked with him a couple times since.....pretty cool guy and the car is eye-candy for sure.

I wishes I can gets my car in a mag :(

That car sure is clean, but i've seen plenty of others that would be nicer to put into a magazine than that. The nb in the background is also a really nice car i've seen his pics on clubroadster.

Any stats for the car.

yes the nb in the second to last pic. I second though that your nb should be in a mag.

Looks like a stock MSM turbo set up, so I doubt it much matters.

99/00 with 01+ headlamps. Pretty bad *** looking car.

Good catch, Hustler - Oil cooler plumbing/mounting fail!

Looks like a nice car but frankly, there are much spiffier Miatas out there. I guess that it is representative of the average nice turbo Miata.

It would be nice to see a big power miata featured in a magazine one day. Eliminator wrote that he might be selling his so hopefully he'll get it featured first...

I have mine temporarily located in the same position. No noticeable increases in IATs. Then again this is highway/street logs and no track time.
