Default Hello, new member

Hey everybody,

Been lurking since the beginning of December when I traded my 05 RX8 on an 05 Miata GT.

The car has a FM Voodoo on it, mishimoto rad, oil cooler, roll bar, FM buttefly brace, RB sways, Eibach springs on oem shocks, Borla exhaust and 15x8 6ul's with R888's.
I also have a Hydra that's not intalled yet as well as a LC1 wideband gauge.

Car is in storage for the winter but come spring the first things on the agenda are to get the Hydra and wideband gauge installed, larger injectors (I can get some rc 440's from my buddy) and upgrade the shocks, or if I can swing it without the wife killing me, get some good coilovers.
So far I've read a ton of great info on this site and hope I can learn a lot.

I know a lot of people on here are not fans of the hydra but I like the support that FM provides for it.
The only problem is I only have the Hydra itself, I need to get the wiring harness and the wb02 for it. I know I can get it from FM but I am going to try and find one used before spring to save some $$$.

I'm also getting rid of the Borla in the spring. My buddy has a full custom Brullen 2.5 inch exhaust from the downpipe back that was on another friends old car a few years ago. So that should help free up power over the stock midpipe and Borla.

Sounds like you found a car with some great parts in it already. I bought mine and it had FM2.5 suspension package, and two sets of ribs and tires.

Thanks man.

I can't wait for spring. I got the car, drove it home (45 min drive) and then washed and stored it for winter.

Hoping for an early spring.

I will definately. I only have two pics of my car right now, taken in my garage just before storing it. Once I get some better pics I'll post them up.
