Default long time listener, first time caller

Sup guys, new to the forums but use them plenty already. I live in the north OC/West IE area in California.

I drive a 2000 miata base model with few mods done:

-Exedy Stage 1 Clutch + F1 Cromoly flywheel
-01+ header swap
-TFS Differential
-03+ sport brakes
(basically, picked at a shinsen)

I work part time so mods are tied to budget but i hope can pull off a good diy turbo set up within the next year...

Default follow up

other mods:
-Energy suspension bushings
-NB2 center console
-NB2 Gauges
-HID set up
-LED rear lic plate lights
-front Lic plate relocation
-shinsen fuel cap



soooo i guess i'll post pictures from stuffz that was done

this was when i first bought it... for about $3k @ 100k miles

rear control arms were slightly warped when i bought it so in went a new rear subframe with controls arms + Energy Suspension bushings. this was after playing in some mud on a road which was under construction

old nasty header

new header (for me...)




the bushings actually weren't installed but i did use the top part of the boot from my old open diff that did have the energy suspension bushings installed and use a hybrid setup with the oem part


new clutch


during the surgery

during the brake installation we found out that my wheels were too small (@14") so i bought the 15" versions in order that the calipers and rotors would fit



how i currently look from the front...
