Default i aint no hairdresser but i like pineapple

oh hello !!!

im manu from canada let me introduce my self

in 2009 i sold my first miata

A 1989 BRG rhd


after a year going threw a couple cars ... i felt like this



so i found this little gem on craigslist


i named her samantha




about a week after that ..changed the roof .. installed some coilover... racing beat intake and a touge run lip



my first ride top down


then i decided i would ran a bit more towards the stance crowd



on a sunny saturday i added a bit of color ..




unfortunatly where i live we get a thousand meter of snow so i have to store my miata :( and drive the DD ...

an ho my god non powerful echo !



but winter does bring some cool project ...




after many headache

and long nights


as of now thats how it looks




thanks for reading boys and girls !

Great intro. When I wrecked my 94 earlier this year, I looked for no other replacement but a miata. I'm hooked for life, probably much like everyone else who's ever owned one. Keep up the good work.

Sounds like a personal problem

Seriously though, megasquirt is D-Shiznit

did megasquirt touch you inappropriately?
times have changed, MS3 is e-z to build. unlike MS2 you don't need to do any mods.

1) buy a mspnp
2) install mspnp
3) car magically works and is tunable!

Seriously, unless your building one MS is as easy as removing the old ecu and plugging in the new one. Of course if you fail with computers/tuning that's a whole different issue.
