Default Another one from Holland

Hi guys,

My name is Michael, I was born in Australia but my parents decided to go back to The Netherlands so I live there now.
I'm 24 at this moment and own a 1.6l classis red (what else) Miata from 1991 for about 3 years now.
I've made some modifications to personalise my car.
Audio, wheels, interior mods and soon I'm going to upgrade the suspension from the terrible stock shocks with Eibach spring combination to a HSD Driftworks adjustable set.
My T.R. Lane real rollbar is being fabricated and will arive in a month or so.

I've turbocharged my car with a TD04H-15G GReddy turbokit, Stripes Pipes IC + plumbing, Mk.1 Link ecu, 550cc Denso RX-7 injectors, Forge BOV with stronger springs (best sound IMO), Innovate LC-1 wb lambda + XD-16 display, HI (15psi) boostgauge, BEGi GReddy 2.5" downpipe, Flyin' Miata (Jackson Racing) 2.5" cat-less exhaust.
And I've also upgraded the 1.6 front brakes to 1.8 brakes.

You'd expect me to be enjoying my nice little turbocharged roadster.
But unfortunately a douchebag started braking for no reason in a tunnel and caused 5 cars, including me, to pile-up onto him/her.
The chassis is bent and it's to expensive for me to get it pulled out straight.
But I've had an offer for a replacement chassis so I only have to haul EVERYTHING from my car over to the other chassis :P

Here are some pictures of before and after the accident:

Don't sweat. I had replaced all the clamps for T-bolt clamps.

In two days I'm going to pick up a brand new second hand MX- The Miata will be sold as a bunch of parts so mitigate the costs of my new MX-5.
The car also includes a Torsen LSD, ACT stage 2 clutch and HSD Driftworks adjustable coilovers.

The ecu I have comes from that car and it was tuned on it's engine. So when I've put back all those nice little maps, I'll be running @ 15 psi instead of only 8 psi.

Owyeah and I'm going to buy his electronice boost controller.

Thanks mate.
I've bought the red leather boot and Momo shift **** with adapterbush from I.L. Motorsport in Germany. It's the biggest MX-5/Miata shop around this part of Europe.
