Default dutch newbie saying hi

hello everybody, I am Tjeerd and I'm from the Netherlands. I drive a 95 m-edition miata which is unboosted right now. I had it for a while running a rotrex SC but I wanted a new project. So I sold the rotrex but kept my ms3 and I'm sourcing the new stuff now. I ordered a manifold and downpipe from Sturovo from the nutz forum and bought a gt2860rs turbo and a bigger IC. I'm contacting the guys from FM now for their IC tubes, as soon as they have them back in stock they'll ship it to me. The only thing I need right now is patience and spare time to start building.

Thinking of rebuilding my engine but don't know if I'm going to use this engine or a nb1.8 engine I can get my hands on...

A picture says more then a thousand words


With the SC still in

As far as SC setups go, that intercooler piping is amazing. Did you fabricate that yourself?

no I didn't fabricate the pipes myself, I wish I had the materials and the space for it. It was done by al local guy who fabricates all sorts of stuf such as exhausts, manifolds and of course IC setups

Kiwi-Parts

He is a real wizard with metal :-D

So what's the best color then Oscar? Dieselmiata and me are on the same team as he says red is the best color and mine is improved red :-D. Just don't say black cause everybody knows that black is not a color....lol

I had a black car once.

They look fantastic when properly maintained. But you can spend an entire weekend claying, compounding, polishing, and waxing it, and all it takes is for some kid to ride his bike in front of your house and *poof*

The car is dirty again.

That's awesome, but I want to park my car sometimes and that would get stolen in about 10 seconds.

Not being able to keep nice things in your car sucks until it's 80°F and sunny and you put the top down, then I usually forget about it.

You can't just yank it out, it's mounted to the dash quite firm. Looks pretty OEM to I think. Most thieves are not to interested in OEM stuff in my experience..... If they'll try to steal it they will only steal a €120,- touchscreen....I would really hate it if they stole my pc or ms3...which are hidden behind the passengerseat :-D

very nice love your display. Work sent me to Amsterdam in April I did not see a single Miata! I went to Budapest after and they were everywhere including this guy the #1 New Jersey Fan. Similar color I think
