Default Finally joining the club. '04 MSM

On monday I'll be the proud owner of a '04 mazdaspeed miata.

Black leather with red stitching.
Bose sound system.
Driven 31k.miles.
2 sets of wheels/tires
Convertible with the glass window and heater.
6gears.
LSD
Manual boost controller and a boost gauge in the vent to the far left.




Once I get my hands on it I'll snap some better pics.


My plan to begin with is to get a MS, bigger fuel pump and injectors, electric boost controller, exhaust and intake. Once I've gotten used to the standalone and tuning it lightly I'll try to figure out which turbo to use to get to around 300hp. I don't think I'd need any more than that.

I looked at one of these with 40K miles on it recently, very very nice car. I'd look into 3.363 gears though, and a rollbar. Welcome.

yeah. I'll find a hardtop and a rollbar soon. Once I hit higher boost I'll start worrying about higher gears.

Beautiful car, exactly how I'd want one if I got one. Shooting for 300 whp or crank? You'll need to beef up the rods to get 300wheel.

Yup, Anything over 250NM of torque calls for new rods, I'll most likely upgrade pistons too while I'm at it once I've figured out how to tune on the fuel here. we don't have much or any high octane, which will have effect on my piston choice.

HAH, when I had the 3000gt my GF's brother ended up buying the clone of my car. our cars were identical apart from me having a sunroof and his didn't. But I'd love to see how your brother gets along with his. Get some sibling rivalry going

Did I mention that this is the only mazdaspeed miata in Iceland?

Welcome!
I've been here for a little while. I know not to talk out of my *** and then everything should be ok. Read, search and then post.

Congrats. I like the red stitching, always bothered me the orang and black ones had silver stitching.

Enjoy
