Default Greetings!

Hey boys and girls!

So last Monday I picked up a 1990 Miata. It is my second car and I love it. My first car was a 1985 352e BMW. They guy I got it from did a lot of work to it, and this forum looks like the most active one I have found.

Anyway here it is.

Looks clean, what's the info on the mods the previous owner did? What are your plans?

1993 long nose crank motor with MazdaSpeed motor mounts, Stronger 1997 drive train with Torsen limited slip differential, half shafts, hubs, drive shaft, transmission. Inter-cooled Turbo, complete exhaust system by RPM (Richards Performance Muffler), 1995 folding OEM Mazda power mirrors with OEM harness and dash control installed,upgraded headlights, upgraded (1995) OEM front brake and calipers, KYB adjustable Shocks.

Those are the major things he did,

my plan as of this moment is to get it running again. but after there is not much to do, it looks all stock so I might but some things on it such as a wide body kit and things like that, and I am thinking about putting some coil overs on it as well, along with some different brakes.

Cool, nice start to an ongoing product. I might suggest coilovers and wheel selection prior to considering wide body or it may not come out quite as you anticipated. Good luck on the build!
