Talking 10AE MX-5 from Portugal

Hello everyone!

Finally came down to making my introduction. I'm Ricardo from Lisbon, Portugal. I own a '99 1.8 NB 10 Anniversary Edition for a year and a half. I've had 3 cars (one is Coke cans by now ), but none have given me the pleasure as this NA kitty! The version is self explanatory (i guess) regarding its specs and extras, and it's pretty much stock.

I've added an IL Motorsport Radiator and de-cat and that's pretty much it!





But then, in the 1st of May, the engine gave itself up. Altough it was "just" bearings, the engine was oval to the point it needed larger pistons. So the list went as follows:
  • Supertech Pistons, 83.5mm with stock compression
  • Supertech Piston Rings
  • Manley rods
  • King bearings
  • Boundary Engeneering oil pump
  • FAB9Tuning COPs







Souvenir


Right now is still sitting still and probably during this month it will be assembled!
Then i'm aiming for adapting the billies to coilovers and then when my b*lls get hairy, turbo! I would aim for 220~230, keepin' it softly!

Best Regards!
Ricardo
