Sweet lookin pretty clean.

You have the stock greddy DP right now? If you're interested I have the equipment to fab up a new 2.5" downpipe, if you supplied the piping/flanges/o2 bung.

Lemme know if you ever need help working on it.

What are your goals for the car and how will it be used?

I'm sure you know, but the stock clutch and rear-end on that car wont last all that long on a higher power level, the first thing to fail being the clutch.

You've unveiled my master plan! The car is past 180,000 miles. It has good compression, but I did do the Loktite cranknose repair at 150,000. Anyway, I'm expecting that a rebuilt long block, Stage 2 clutch, Torsen and suspension mods are in the future.


For the most part, it will continue to be used as it is now . . . high-speed commuting on winding country roads (between Granbury and Mineral Wells -- no cops, only cows) and teaching yet another teenage daughter how to shift gears (I've never been able to teach my wife, but that's another story). I actually bought the car for my oldest daughter, but she outgrew it (I now have two grandkids and a gainfully employed son in law). So, car reverts to ME! That was my first master plan.

I'd like to get into a bit of motorsports with it, just have to find time.

Can't say enough good about Miatas. Endlessly fun to drive and modify.
