If my car made that noise, I would cream my pants.

Sounds like my car with the muffler off, only I can hear the faint whistle of a turbo.

Maybe it's the junk laptop speakers, but that doesn't sound much different than a normal miata to me. Except maybe the idle sounds lopey.

If we had nicer engines i'd say ITBs would be cool. That car sounds like it has a shitty idle and no exhaust. I'll pass.

I'm 99% sure they are. I think it looks great, fwiw.

They car sounds alright, nothing to tell your friends about but, pretty impressive numbers for a NA miata no doubt.

I bet it would be a blast to drive around town.

the hard part with those rx7 lights would be the body work not the wiring most likely. That skyline is badass.

I would like to use them for more than just signal/turn lights, thats why I said I wouldnt know how to wire them to use them as somewhat headlights.

The body work wouldnt be my concern I have a friends thats very ******* good at making **** fit lol. Ive showed him pictures of a similar car before and he said is something he would be able to do.
