You want 6ULs, not BBS.

^6ULs, or any of the other modern lightweight 15x8 or 15x9 wheels (Konig, Advanti, etc). I'm partial to 6ULs myself.

Those are some... fun seat covers. I'd huck 'em asap if it were mine.

I really do want 6UL but I'm trying to go with stock sleeper look. I want there to be nothing to give it away. 6UL may hint. BBS came stock for the era. Just ordered up MS from Reverant. Wide band and injectors later in the week.

Damn I'm such a noob I didn't even notice they were covers. Fail.

You want an MS3 of some sort and you need the wideband at the same time.

I all ready put in a order with Reverant last night. I am looking for the right AEM wideband as of now on amazon since I am betting it will be cheaper than from FM. Also getting injectors. Thinking these Flow Force 640cc EV14 Injectors

Everything sounds like a good plan. And a man after my own heart wanting to go for stock sleeper look. My goal on mine is to have it look like it could have come from the factory like that (other than the roll bar).

The 15" BBS's that came on Miatas were only available from the 1995 M edition. 15x6 or 6.5. I run them for my street wheels.

Also, the AEM UEGO 30-4110 seems to work well. I just installed mine the other day. Had to run a new B+ lead for the head unit (aftermarket) and put a big filter capacitor on the power/ground of the AEM to make them co-exist peacefully though. Otherwise the PWM switched ground of the AEM just made all kinds of noise.

I may possibly go this AEM combo route so I can have just one gauge. I obviously do not want anything on the piller. There seems to be less info on it since most people just run separate gauges.
AEM Wideband Air/Fuel and Boost in One Gauge! for Miata

I was thinking the 15 BBS for bigger brakes but they seem to be expensive and rare. I will figure something that looks stock. I need to figure out what the wheels I have now are. They are missing the covers and look ghetto. If they are not TOO HEAVY I may just leave them because no self respecting Turbo Miata driver would ever rock these things. I removed 20 years of dirt out of the fenders just now. Here is a creeper pic of my wife putting the soft top boot on hehe.Figure I owe you guys for all the answers.
