Default Hi turbo kitten

I'm new to the Miata game, but have been in the turbo game for a while. Mostly Nissan's, Toyota's and Honda's. I work as a clown in a traveling circus, aka race mechanic..... And when I'm not completely worn out from wrenching on stuff at work I tinker in the garage. So far the Miata has tested my patience more than any other vehicle, exposed wires every where, rear sub frame brace had 3 broken bolts in it, lower diff spacer is missing and only had one bolt in the ppf..... There is a lot more wrong with this car than the previous owner mentioned. Here are a couple pics of the Miata i bought and some of my previous builds.


Looks good from 50 yards, completely hacked when you get close


Slowly fixing what the previous owner did to the car


Turbo s13 I sold to buy the Miata


This toy is called the "Lunar Rover"..... Built on the garage floor, really doesn't serve a purpose..... Lol

OP, is that exhaust exiting the fender in front of the rear wheel?
If so, you're going to fix it along with the fucked up stance and wheels right?
Otherwise, we might have to deport you to Ohio.

Didn't know there was a whole gang of Miata owners in Indiana, lol. I don't see them to often on the road.
