Default Hey Guys!!! , Just de-noobing myself...

I'm located in San Diego and have had my miata for about 2 months now. I only get to work on the car on saturdays and so far I've cleaned up the interior and engine bay, replaced the stock stereo and door speakers for a sony cd deck and kenwood speakers, installed a hardtop, installed a non power antenna, lowered the car on cheap ebay coilovers and adjustable agx shocks, replaced steering wheel with aftermarket removeble one and a few other little things. Currently in the market for some new wheels a roll bar and a turbo kit. I guess thats about it. Hope to get lots of info and ideas from this site.. See you guys around the forums.. - Bryan

PS. if any of you know of a good deal in San Diego for the above parts please let me know. Thanks guys...

Welcome! If you looking for a turbo kit look into begi turbo kits, they are a little expensive but will be well worth it! Just don't buy a turbo kit from ebay! they are crap. Post up some pictures of the car please, we would all like to see it!!

Thanks boostin, I'll definetly try to take some pics this weekend when I work on the headlights. I have a 92 5spd with the nardi torino package. Body is a bit beat up but I always wanted a miata to play with. More and more miata's are poping out of San Diego so parts a becoming hard to come by..

If you are on a buget the greddy kit works fine and has lots of possiblitys for upgrades latter if you want. And its really easy to install.

Thanks Lev... Theres so much to do and not enough time in one day...

G2B, I was checking out the website and the roll bars look great. Where are they located? I don't recognize any area codes local to San Diego.

If anyone knows of a good shop or has connections with roll bars in San Diego please let me know. Thanks in Advance...

Finally had a chance to take a pic. Car is really dirty and only have a cell phone cam but here is a lil taste..

Lev, the Egay Coilovers aren't that bad actually but I think its because the AGX's are able to make up for it. I had them set at 4 and they were way to stiff for street use so I can only imagine what 8 will be at. I have them set to 1 and its just a little to soft / hardly bouncy but it seems to be smother than the factory setup I had. I just changed them to 2 but have not driven them yet. I can still lower the springs another 1.5" from where it currently sits in the pic.

Side note, The Volk GTC's pictured is also the set I have for sale. If anyone is interested please let me know. Thanks- Bryan
