Default Big Hello To Everyone

Hi everyone. :-D I've had an MX5 for the past 6 years and have done loads to it over the years. I know its now to everyones taste, but here's a few pictures anyway.











Its a 1997 1.8 fitted with a Powercard Pro and MSD that currently running my supercharger with 150mm crank overlay and intercooler. I have larger injectors, uprated pump O2 clamp and an Innovate LC-1 kit ready to go on along with an emanage blue. I just need to sort out a boomslang harness.

I'm a complete noob when it comes to tuning and would welcome any advice given.

Welcome.

What the hell is that polished, cancerous lump growing on the side of your motor?

Wow, I really like your car, super clean, very well done. The only thing I would change is the supercharger (maybe a little less chrome too ).

Welcome to the forum.

It's funny, you made a lot of decisions on your car that I wouldn't have -- but the end result doesn't offend me at all. I kind of like it, really. That probably sounds a little more like damning with faint praise than I intend it to, but I'm serious...I like your car, and I'm kind of surprised how much I like your car.

Now get a turbo.

Yea I guess this sounds bad, but I honestly like your car even though most of the stuff you did I usually don't like on our cars.

Its a Zoom meter panel copy that I recovered in leather along with the center console and padded arm rest.

Welcome. Please add your location to your details so it shows up under your name. We're glad you joined us.

Personally I think it needs wider tires to fill out those wheel wells.
