Default Mecanical parts under pressure

My name is Mark, I'm a Belgian, 41 years old, married and I have a daughter that is 8.

I love Cars and motorcycles since I could walk, and always dreamed about having a nice workshop to do mod's on motorcycles aswel as on cars.

For years I had a small shop to accomodate bike's witch was way to smal for a car.

Two years ago I was able to buy a small house next to mine and over time I converted this one to my workshop

My car is a MX-5 1991 Limited Edition in Brtitish racing green with tan leather interior, converted to a Greddy Turbo, no intercooler or other extras

It has about 160.000km (+/-100.000miles) and is running quite nice.

The pics still has the car on Dutch numberplates from the previous owner, and the wheels I have now are the original 15' NB wheels. I didn't like the ones that where fitted...other wheels will be fitted later.

Things I would like to do @ the car, over time....:
Fully programable ECU
Other Injectors
IC
Wideband Lambda (O2)
Sportclutch with 1.8 flywheel
Other Diff
Nice Wheels
A "real" roll-over bar
Front brake kit from the 1.8

I'm planning to use the car on the road as a weekendcar and occasionally on trackdays.

I'm looking for a conservative 180-190hp but with a very smooth running engine and fast Turbo spool-up.

Oh yes...before I forget, I bloody hate lambo doors

Welcome. That's a sweet setup you got there. My garage barely has room for the miata but I somehow have my car and two motorcycles crammed in it...
