Entered this thread with trepidation, but I like it. Clean.

Paint the front bumper and grill red, though.

I don't usually comment on noobs' rides because many of them are raging heaps of ****, but this car looks pretty damn good. Would look better with at least the bottom portion of the front bumper painted red to match the rest of the car, but it's got 4 doors and I can overlook the FWD, I'd rock it for a DD. Nobody would expect that car to be even remotely quick, so the sleeper factor is high. Me likey.

I like sleepers.

Put your location in your profile so it shows up under your name. Somebody here might be local to you.

Do you have a dyno graph or some timeslips from the track to share?

What's the story with that clutch pressure plate? KL plate with a BP/Miata flywheel? Huh?

yes, the clutch is a ACT street/strip disk and HD pressure plate for the probe/mx6 V6. the PP has higher tq capacity than the miata and protege PP, according to their site.

flywheel is from the 99 miata, which is 17lbs stock vs the early bp 20lb iirc.

heres a few pics I took when I was installing it all..
