Default 2 years and i finally post.

Ok i have been lurking on most of the miata forums for about 2 years and rarely post. My car isn't anything special yet, so i don't usually do a new guy post.

I had a 93 miata that had way too many problems. I got rid of it and ended up buying my brother's 90. As soon as I got it, i swapped my suspension and all my other mods over to his.

mods so far:
Flyin' Miata Vmaxx coilovers
NB wheels with 195/50r15's
Hard Dog HardCore RollBar
R type front lip
Flyin' Miata Exhaust
Used Hard Top


Car came with an unknown hub and steering wheel. On to a few pics.

Car looks like a good starting point for boost. Get a MS soon and tune it n/a and have fun, then aim for some real power.

And if you keep spamming to get to 15 you're gonna get a warning real quick.

that's fine. I'm not really spamming. I do perfer my 1.6L to my brothers 99 1.8L. He even agrees that mine is more fun to drive.

Sounds like you and your brother are definitely from the same gene pool.

OP - you were off to a decent start. Then you went and messed it up. But not all is lost for you, so do yourself a favor and don't go full retard.

BTW: anyone that drives a 1.6 and 99+ back to back and thinks the 1.6 is more fun or faster, or zippier, or whatever pixie dust fairy tale gayness you wanna sprinkle on us, is out of their mind, or there is something severely wrong with the 99 engine.

nice concealer. you double posted as well. I didn't mean to double post. I'm sorry that i don't post for almost 2 years, then actually get bored enough at work to post. I usually just read and learn as much as possible. I shall refrain from posting anywhere until i get 30 from this thread. Does that satisfy everyone?

I never said it was faster or anything even close. I just said it was more fun to me. It a personal preference and my opinion. If you think otherwise, then that's awesome. To each their own.

How about actually adding to the value of the site instead of posting inane **** everywhere?

yea, I'm trying. I'm usually on M.net most of the time. still rarely every post, unless i'm having a problem with my car.


on a side note, I have been trying to figure out what my next mod up to $500 needs to be. I don't think i can find a MS for that price. I also don't have any tuning shops closer than 3 hours away. I have been thinking a oil cooler and more gauges for my DDM works radio surround. Thoughts??

You don't say...

You can easily get an MS for <$500 and who cares if there are no shops around to tune it, you have a PC don't you?
