Default Member since 2008. Finally bought a Miata!

Hi everyone. Ive been a member on here for a long time but have never posted. I know there is a lot of good information and bright minds here and now I finally purchased my first miata (2000 NB LS) I have a reason to post.

I'm quite familiar with megasquirt and turbo miatas due to being friends with the late wes65 and spending many long hours wrenching and tuning his car.

Although my current plans dont involve forced induction I do plan on building the car for NASA TTE and retiring my current track car (2003 WRX) to daily driver duty. I'm dedicating this build to Wes as he was one of the most intelligent people I have ever met and left us way too soon.

On to the car!




2000 Miata LS with 92k on it. Came with a Hard Dog M2 Sport single diagonal, flying miata swaybars and RE-11's on it.


Since i will be tracking the car the current roll bar wont pass tech, so I pulled it out to replace it with a Hard Core double diagonal.



The side skirts were held on by a few self tapping screws and double sided tape that was falling off so i went ahead and ditched them. I no longer have a use for them so if anyone wants them send me a PM.




That is all for now!
Hope to lean a lot here!

Nice car. Lots of great normally-aspirated build info on here from Emilio and Hustler. If you've been around, you know the entertainment value of the site (and Hustler).

Where R U?
