Default Miata convert

having owned a honda accord for a few years and looking into modifying it to move faster i realized honda was not the brand for me. I liked cars that worked and did so well. so i bought a miata. my first one, a 1.6l in perfect shape owned by elder man who never pushed it, was totaled only 3 weeks of having it. so i replaced it with a 1.8l 1997 red with a cracked rear window, paint peeling, rocker rust, shitty interior, dents and i love it. PO on red one did doughnuts and other stupid racing around thru parking lots that i didn't approve of on my test ride

currently prepping for turbo, doing various maintenance, fluids belts water pump etc. just ordered my Reverant ms2 enhanced and some 650cc ev14s and also some tein flexs to replace shitty oem.

Waiting for TSE kit to come out.

Welcome, sounds like you took a HUGE upgrade from the accord. I mean the accord would be a nice daily, i personally have a 94 integra for DD status. But honda does not compare to the feeling of a well setup miata.

Fix that rust first! Any pics of your car?

Welcome! Good call on waiting for TSE's EFR goodness as well as jumping on ev14s from the start (I'm about to order the 650s too). Grab some wider wheels while you're at it, you'll need them.

If you wanna fix up that rocker rust, check out my thread that clears up what it looks like underneath and how to repair it: https://www.miataturbo.net/general-m...ctorial-64629/

lol I had never seen that stanceworks thread before, that's pretty good.

Did the OP ever do anything about that? I just saw 1 page of content and the next 4 were all people laughing at him.
