Default Hello from S.Jersey.Just another crazy Dego.Pics inside.

Hello people,

My name is Jay and i just got a 1994 NA about 3 weeks ago. I am a Local 68 Operating Eng. contracted out for Borgata Casino in Atlantic City. I am a commercial property maintenance mechanic. I basically get paid to wait for things to break.

I freaking love this car. by far the best stock road handling car i have owned to date. That includes all the Trans Ams,Mustangs and two Vettes. It is even better than the two RX7's that i had.

Anyway. My girl was owned by an ASE Mazda mechanic. It has had all kinds of maintanance performed on it. Crank seal,cam seal,water pump,timing belt,drive belts,complete tune-up. All the fluids were changed too.

She runs very,very well. It is completely stock,say for the timing being bumbed to 14*. She is my DD. She has a 5 spd,p/w,p/m,cc,pwr/antenea.

My goals are suspension, R spoiler for the trunk. I am still on the wall about the power aspect of my plans. i'm either goin FI or just some cams and head work. Still unsure.

I do all my own work and whatever i don't know i learn how to do.

Full exhaust is definately going to be done aswell. Here are some pics of Mia.(I know corny but hey;what are you going to do?)

My lisence plate idea and driving lights.





















So thats me and my ride.
Thanks for looking.
Jay.

Welcome to the forum. There is lots of good info in the FAQ's and the sticky's at the top of each sub-forum. Good luck with your research.
