Is that paint on the windshield or tape to fix a leak?

Back in the day when I was 16, I learned to drive on a 1988 323, and the mx-3 was the epitome of the 323, way cooler and only two doors! Then I got smart and swapped to RWD.

That MX-3 bay is pretty clean! Does anyone else think it's weird when they see a battery under the hood now?

The cut out was fitted with a bigger PT intercooler then was replaced with a 350hp PT intercooler. So in time i'll get another bumper and fix that issue i hope that answers ur ? By the way its a 94 miata with a B6 engine at one time it was boosted with a BP setup that setup has long been gone.

The windshield was replaced along with a new strip seal. Had to leave the tape in place to cure properly. Smashed windshield if ur wondering.

Learn to drive standard in the MX-3 so it was sentimental value to me since i was 17. As u can see what i did with it who would do all the for just a MX-3.

Its not a Miata don't FWD Mazda have battery's in the engine bay. I'll Move the battery out the engine bay in due time.

Is there a reason why the turbo is clocked up and the IC pipes do that retarded loop on your mx3? or will the IC pipes hit the ground if you clock it downward?

For the reason that, that's the way I wanted it setup at that time. I have never had any problems with it.
