Default I bought a chick car.

Don't know **** about boost,yo

2004 MSM Titanium Grey with 37k on the clock. My first turbo car and by far my fave! Looking to find/gain knowledge about my speed with hopes in modding it soon. My goal is to reach 200rwhp maybe a little more. I have registered with about 3 other miata forums in the last couple of days, and this one seems to be most active.

Yeah..I forgot. Get a roll bar. Not a "style bar"... a real roll bar. After that, then get the FM package for 200whp and be happy.

And by roll bar we mean something from that is either a hard dog or boss frog, those are the only two brands I can think of off the top of my head. Chances are if it costs less then $325 it's not going to protect you in a roll over, mine was $500 shipped. This is very similar to the one I've got in my car, $35 more with the double diagonal bars to be cool like me.

Kirk also sells a nice 6 point bar for these cars. I have the Kirk bar in mine.

I saw this, don't want to knock FM or anything, but I think I'd rather scoop up used parts off ebay. aem intake, ebay intercooler,downpipe , maybe get area shop to fab up an exhaust for me.

Yeah, That's been my idea. Ebay just has the chrome style ricer janks.
If anyone has a roll bar compatible with my speed, hit me up! lol

Carmax decal was the first to go lol.
What part of Arlington are you from?
Is there any local Mazda/Miata meets in the area? I've only encountered busters who just drive for " fuel economy." I'm down in Springfield off Backlick rd

That was the first thing to go, along with the Mx-5 badge.

Anyone have any ideas/advice on how to cover up the holes in the front bumper? I took off my license plate bracket,and the scratches/ drill holes make my stomach hurt. Yes, I plan on driving it with no front plate

You're SOL on those holes unless you fill, sand, paint, sand. :(
