Default Greddy Miata from the Netherlands

Hi Guys,

After a long period of almost only reading and a few posts, it is time to introduce myself.
As my nickname suggests, am I Stephan from the Netherlands.
Since 2005 i own a '91 Miata, wich is imported form California.

Untill now i am already too long busy with the Greddy turbo kit (since 2007), or what's left of it. Of the basic set I use only the turbo itself and afpr.
For almost two years I have parts in my possession for further upgrades, like an MS and injectors, but don't have the time.

Also two years ago is the engine overhauled, it has maybe 1000 miles runned now. Says enough of the time I have.

The car is far from finished, it seems like a ten-year plan

I LOVED the car until i saw the mess of blue silicone hoses. Nice car still, just not my cup of tea with the blue silicone in a red engine bay. Are those superleggera wheels?

Really sweet looking car, looks to be in great shape. I like the blue hoses personally, though I think since you've got black and red on the outside, black hoses and lines on the engine would look perfect.

Really nice build. Now make some powa!! You had the motor out, is it built?

I'm jealous of how clean that engine and engine bay looks. Nice looking car. The blue is ok. The cleanliness makes up for it.

Thnx for the compliments!

@Fireindc, I started one with blue because most of the stores over here is that the color they have in stock. The wheels are OZ Ultraleggera.

@Turbofan, what do you mean with is it built?

@Viperormiata, the MS is ready to install, but my knowledge insn't enough at the moment.

He means did you install pistons, rods, etc...? In post 1 you said the engine was overhauled and only has 1000 miles on it. Details?

I guess after watching all the baller build threads on here from boost addicted boats, I see no reason to pull an engine out of a car if you're not going to fill it with forged internals before reinstallation.

I don't usually like red Miatas, but when I do, they look like yours. Nice work on the exterior. And the wheels look great in black...are they 16"?

The wheels are indeed 16", yes, need some spacers.

The reason for the engine rebuild was a broken drivebelt what I didn't noticed on a sunny day with the top down, result: crooked head belt was nearly one year old.
Once i started with the repair, I came to the conclusion that one of the pistons was in a bad shape, so I choose for a overhaul. I choosed for IL Motorsport 0,25 oversized pistons, new bearings and some other new parts.
I didn't choose for stronger pistons and rods because it is too expensive for me, and don't want boost that large (for now )

Wheels and paint on the car look great. Agree with "Fireindc" about the blue hoses, but to each their own!
