Default A New Eastern Shore Addition (MD)

Ive been scanning this forum for the past 6 months like a monster in the closet watching u sleep. Reading and taking in as much info as i could possibly need.

Not once have i had the need to register because all my questions have been answered, every time i searched for what i needed. I have now come to the point were i would like to be a part of this community.

My name is Michael im 23 i live on the eastern shore of Maryland near ocean city.
I am a custom exhaust specialist at a local garage here were i have built and installed everything from stock, to duals, to 5" exhaust on more cars and trucks than i can remember.

i purchased my 94 m edition miata a few months back, for the same reason 90% of you did. i wanted a lightweight rwd car to have fun with.

The engine has 80k the body has approx 150ish. Runs like a bat out of hell and doesnt burn a drop of oil.

There isnt much to see yet, but i do believe my vision is a good one.
im not going to rant about what im going to do, instead i will tell you what i have done so far.

-2.5" custom exhaust (of course) (solo "quantum" resonator with flowmaster 40 muffler)

-MS2PNP (just got installed 2 weeks ago)

I just ordered a complete polyurethane bushing kit, as well as drilled and slotted rotors. I have also ordered a wideband o2 with guage so i can finally do some real tuning.

suspension is next on the list, then wheels and tires, then turbo.

I am preparing for a turbo build which i hope to complete before summer comes.

The upholstery should get started on next week. im leaving the black pieces and removing the brown leather with a red vinyl and fo-suede.
(interior will be black and red.)

I hope to add something positive to the community.
Thanks.

Looking good.

So this exhaust shop thing that you do...could you make custom exhausts in the 3inch Miata variety and would said exhaust cost American dollars?

why yes...yes it can. unfortunately we only accept shillings and other forms of mid-evil currency ...and american express.

Depending on what muffler you want it could range from 225 to 400. the 400 range would get you the 3" pipe with a magnaflow style muffler and maybe a tip of your choice. unfortunatley my boss has final word on pricing. I can check with him tomorrow for a more accurate price for those who are interested.
