Red face long time lurker. here for cats.

long time lurker.. check join date and post count.
previously owned a 93 turboed 1.6(168HP) ..
that i sold when i needed driveway space for my stealth RT TT. (474HP)
which i sold for a Terminator Cobra.... ..(612HP)
Which I sold for a 87 volvo 740GLE turbo... (234HP)
Which I sold for a 1989 Plymouth voyager turbo 5 speed van. (253HP)
Which i blew up.. ..
So I bought another 93 miata. The circle of life simba.


car is a 93 that was used by The FIRM www.gorally.com as an instructor car.
sold to an instructor. that moved away. and sold me the car.

Good news is.. it was maintained for and by the track. good fluids. alignments. maintainence. adjustments.
bad news. it sat in the florida sun for a 8 years. getting ROASTED.
Good news. nice K sport coil overs and racing beat sway bar and adjustable links. nice shifter. hardtop. welded frame. Strut tower bars.
Bad news.. gutless turd of a 1.6 ltr miata with no power mods.. = constant heartbreak.

Photo dumb below.






my latest birthday present.




it either sits at home. or gets taken to the track and SCCA solo days.



Imediate plans are hunting down a VVT engine. and going through it.
or hunting down a 94-97 engine and VVT top end for reduced compression.
Then finding a 90-93 older megasquirt.. MS2 or other options.
and then boost. a china chong spinny boi will be installed once i find myself a suitable tunable ECU set up.

Insert cats below.
