Do you even know what you are doing? "No big deal I'll just throw a front subframe from a completely different car on there, then put 650HP in it." Cool story bro, I'll believe it when I see it.

In the mean time, if you were thinking about Megan Racing "struts" then you have a lot of research to do. Good luck.

Awesome. Lots of people expect to be spoon fed. My favorite was "this is a forum right? It's here for people to ask stupid questions" or something like that. Of course all those stupid questions have been answered already, they just don't want to work. I thought the same a little when I first signed up (lol I was considering a supercharger).

Read as far in to the "build thread" section as you can. When you start getting to the threads where the pictures don't work anymore because they are so old then you will have the turbo knowledge of the Gods!

Welcome to the site!

Did you guys miss the pictures he posted?



The guy obviously has some ideas that are well out of the ordinary, but it would certainly appear that he's not your average over-ambitious 16 year old. Hope he stays around long enough to get the car together.

I'll be around pedexta. However its gonna be a good bit. Im just now starting the tube chassis. My idea for the 06 front suspension was it netted bigger brakes and 5 lug to match the for 9 inch. So wheel will match. I dont have struts or coilovers yet. Witch is the main reason im here. You guys know miatas in and out. And know how to make them handle better. Only difference is my weight distribution will be made 50/50 and my cg might be a bit higher.

No fuel injection, 95 lbs injectors so I can run e85 in kill mode. Will have a 93 tune as well for driving to work. Lolhttp://i1278.photobucket.com/albums/...psaf51a7cc.jpg
