Default This isn't where I parked my car...

Hi all,

Long time autocrosser saying hello. I come from the LSX Truck world and currently drive a 95' Montego blue miata. This is my 3rd miata, they are a blast, but I don't need to remind anyone here of that.

Just got back from MRLS a few weekends ago, had a blast, I think I have the boost bug now...

The car. 95' Hardtop, 1.8, Torsen,4.10's, Falken 615's, custom oil burner...


The Tow Rig. Iron block LS2, 216/220 Cam,Mp112. Semi-Useless burnout machine..

Any specific plans for the Miata?

Still undecided in the power department. I would feel fairly comfortable with an LSX swap of sorts coming from the off road world but I also live in CA which can make things difficult. I noticed a few of the BEGi kits come with a CARB sticker which is appealing. I scored a few BP heads/blocks a few weeks back for next to nothing knowing I may travel down the road to boost. One is currently being tanked and the other is living a life of luxury as my coffee table.


I need much more seat time before switching anything around in the suspension department. At this point I wouldn't know the difference between a properly sprung/weighted setup VS. my crappy megan c/o setup. I tried to set up the megans as best I could going off my ~15 years of MTB/ Moto suspension tuning experience but very little transfers over besides the basics, I'm not used to having 4 wheels on the ground.

I have some XXR (531's IIRC?) wheels and Falken 615 tires on there now which seem to get the job done. I've been happy with their cold weather auto-x performance and daily drive-ability.
