Default Got out of the 240sx world and jumped into this one.

New to this forum and just wanted to say hello. I recently got a 1994 NA and I'm planning on using my t25 from my old SR20det to run a "homebrew" turbo setup. I haven't had my Miata long but I love it a lot more than my S13, little to no problems in a Miata. Hope to learn a lot from you guys because I'm still kinda new to Miata's in general. Will post pics of my car later. Here's the old car funding the new project.

Looks like you had a clean s13, i like those wheels. 350z or g35 wheels? My brother has a s14 that is clean as **** as well.

Don't drift the miata and you will do fine here.

350Z and hell no, I didn't even drift the S13. Too much abuse, fun to watch though.

S chassis are fun. I enjoy driving my brothers s14. Though not as much "fun" as a miata, it's much more civilized and a way better daily.

Pic of me and my brother waiting to get on zee dyno.


Miata made 240whp, s14 with s15 turbo made 280whp.

Yeah haha I don't plan on ricing out the miata either. I hate street drift projects with shitty paint and mismatched wheels. Everything on my S13 was a simple mod and nothing that didn't flow good with the car. I've done the big 5 panel mirror and long shift **** but after a while I just went back to stock with a round shift ****(looks 10x better, idk wtf I was thinking -___-) I plan on keeping the miata simple on the inside too, nothing that sticks out like a sore thumb. I decided to use my Nardi steering wheel from my S13 and put it on the Miata instead. I'm trying to put any compatible accessories from my S13 onto the Miata an it's going quite well.


I used to be a spelling and grammar **** on other forums sooo you'll find my posts easy on the eyes lol.

Welcome. I came from S13 coupe --> S13 fastback --> miata. Once in a while I miss the S chassis, but the miata is so much better. Oh and I also took my old T25 from my sr20 for my first miata turbo setup. It should be a good setup for ya.
