Smile Longtime lurker first time poster

Hello all Miata enthusiasts, first time post fairly noobish to modifying (keyword) cars. Wanted a small sports car for ages finally bought one 6 months ago. Bought sterla my 95 montego blue.

She's a blast just needs more guts, I've done a handful of mods since I've bought her and a few came on the car. I bought it with a blackbird rollbar, vmaxx coils and subframe bracing. Since then I've dash swapped it to the 1.6 dash, changed the head unit, new wheels and tires for extra grip. And a handful of other mods for handling. Now it just needs to go faster.

So next on my list in prep is the cooling system, new rad, relocating a new overflow tank I don't like the pimple, and ultimately a coolant reroute.

Super excited to learn more about these awesome cars!

Welcome to the forum.

You will want a stronger clutch prior to increasing the power. Redrider has one for sale in the classifieds.
