Arrow I swear im not just getting my post count up...

So wanted to share my car and how far its come, and what im planning for the next couple of months.

My names Moe and I live in central Jersey I bought this car in may of 2013, it was pretty beat up and on its death bed.


It had a smoking engine and a rattle can paint job. But I was determined to bring her back. After owning the car for 6 months the motor finally went and I decided it was time to build. I bought a 04 Nb2 motor with VVT head for a unbelievable price. Motor had 64K miles and looked very clean. I slowly began to mod this car and fell very very deep into the whole miata world. I love this freaking car. I plan on turboing the car this year once i have my MS running. Heres a Mod list so far.

Yeah...I used a ceiling winch wouldn't recommend that method at all

Rust

And here she is today






04 VVT Engine
Yonaka 32 way adjustable coilovers
Yonaka 2.5 Catback exhaust
C's Short shifter
Megan Racing motor mounts
Racing beat front sway bar
949 Racing VVT controller
949 6ULS 15x8.5(f)15x9(r)
Nitto NT-05 205/50
Hard DOG HC M2 double diagonal
Momo monte carlo 320mm
Nrg detachable hub

Welcome to MT.
You're doing it right. Need more folks like you around here.

And, might I add, your Laguna Blue (?) paint looks very nice.

Welcome! If you are on Facebook check out "New Jersey Miata" group if you arent already on there... Lots of cool people on there and plenty of meet/cruise info. I'm located in south jersey (Gloucester County) but I know some people in central.
