Hey I am Phil. I'm from the PNW, and the weathers been super nice lately so it seems like a good time to pick up a miata. the last fun car i had was around 2009 (integra gsr-t) so i'm really excited.








-'95
-80xxx miles
-hardtop
-ugly wheels

stoked!

I see you have a preference for white things. Racist.

Dude, you know that "gay car" thing is just a big run on joke around here, right? I mean, it isn't like we are all gay....

That integra is on a pretty short list of FWD cars I would actually own. Nice looking ride.

thanks brah. nothing concrete so far with boost, just have to do a bunch of maintenance and fix random ---- first:
-paint calipers black or gray or something because they are currently baby blue
-new brake pads/rotors
-new rad
-suspension
-new wheels
-find a stock pass side mirror

I haven't done too much research on the motor besides it being a 1.8... not completely sure what i can do with stock internals. I have a gt30r from the last build sitting here collecting dust. unsure what to do but i'll finger it out later i guess

That can somewhat be rectified with an lsd and crazy stiff rear springs/bar, but overall, a god conversion from wrong wheel drive
