Default 94 Turbo from Australia

Gday Folks,

Thought i would check in and stop lurking.

Heres a pic and the specs on my car....Its not my daily driver, just a toy for weekends.

Car is a '94 MX-5 Clubman. This model came with Bilsteins and Type 1 Torsen from the factory. Its fair to say it has been thoroughly modified from there



Engine:
1.8 with full AVO kit
GT28 Ball bearing turbo
AVO Manifold
AVO Dump
AVO intercooler
Custom made 2.5" exhaust (metalcat to be fitted)
Turbosmart Boost controller
Turbosmart BOV
RR Fuel pressure Regulator
Walbro fuel pump
360 cc GTX injectors (i have a set of 550cc waiting to be installed)
Air intake temp sensor
Link G4 Storm ECU
Carbing Strut brace
50mm Cooling pro Radiator

Body
Garage Vary front lip
Matt Black Hardtop
Black window frame surround
Brown Davis Roll bar
Craftsquare CF Mirrors
US "R" Package rear lower spoiler (to be fitted)
KG Works Ducktail Spoiler (to be fitted)

Underneath
Buddy Club JNR Spec Coilovers
All Bushes replaced (Offset Camber type up front)
Exedy HD clutch
Goodwin V4 Big Brake kit with Wilwood 6 Piston Dynapro option
Wilwood Brake proportioning valve
Master cylinder stopper
15 x 8 6UL
225/45/15 Kumho V70
Type 1 Torsen LSD
Beatrush Triangle Diff Brace (to be fitted)
Flyin Miata Butterfly Brace (to be fitted)

I think there are a few other things that i have forgotten, but anyway.....this is my 4th NA MX-5 having bought my first one in 01....this one is a keeper though and will be used regularly in supersprint (time attack), motokhana (autocross) and the odd skid pan day or hillclimb. The missus will also be using the car for track events, she starts her advanced driver training next weekend on the skid pan and skid circuit (she's passenger in the above pic)...the best thing about this is that i can get away with modifications and "repairs" pretty easily as its for her too..... pretty much any mod is for "safety" or otherwise neccessary if you see what i mean There are a few other modifications planned, more power....better seats etc.

This site looks like a great resource so i hope i can learn a few things

Thanks mate. The kiwi (New Zealand) Link came with the car...feature wise it looks good, and most importantly my tuner is familiar with it. But you are right, most Australian cars will be built with an Australian ECU.....Motec, Haltech, Michrotech, Wolf etc.
