Default Hello from the other side

Hi,

let me say hello from the other side of the atlantic ocean.

my name is Kristian aka Krischan, sitting over here in northern Germany and writing nonsense

my car is a european 1996 merlot LE 1.6 with some things already done.
The car is n/a, as I plan to go ITB.

Here are some of the mods I did in the last 3,5 years:

6spd
4,3 from a 91L with Mazdaspeed 2way LSD
MS PnP w AFM removal
some headwork with oversized valves from FM
Splitfire COPs
JR CAI
RB 4-1
JR catalyst
ATJ catback exhaust
FM B-Brace
H&R sways
Koni shocks
Front airdam and rear lip from R-Package
A lot of chrome in the Interieur and some other stuff like a Voodoo ****....
91 stock springs (to be changed for FM springs)
wheels are silver 7x15 OZ Superleggera III
tyres are Hankook RS-2, Kumho KU 15 to come
brakes are 255 (Antilock) with drilled rotors, stainless steel brake lines and Ferodo DS pads

so thatīs a small lookaround, hope Iīll fit here to all the overboosties with my vaccuum cleaner

Itīs a 1.6
And thereīs more: The whole interieur is a bit brighter than the Miata Merlot.
Also the seats are different (MKII style) and I think the original steering wheel is different to the US one like the carpet and the door pads.

Well..Iīve ordered a Fuji Racing 1.6 Base Kit and try to get it running with a Pipercross airbox connected to the JR CAI. I have to get the TPS running in the MS, but not before the car is running well.
