Default New to the forum!

What's up guys my name is Arik and I bought my 1991 mazda Miata almost a year ago now and have been on a few other forums but I haven't been active anywhere. I have gotten some very useful information and tips from threads on this forum so I decided to make a username and to become active on here as much as possible so I can try and give back to the community as much as I can from the mods and experiences I have had with my car as well as learn more and more along the way.

On to my car:

Exterior:
Pretty much stock black rolled fenders and platinum xxr 531s 15x8+0 wrapped in federal rsr tires. Nitrogen in tires I am a firm believer in nitrogen and we have a machine at the shop I work at and I have seemed to notice a difference in the ride with nitrogen.

Suspension:
Raceland coils that were on the car when I bought it I plan to go with some tein monoflex in the future
Racing beat front tubular racing sway bar
Racing beat solid rear sway bar

Drivetrain:
6 speed transmission from an 04 mazdaspeed
1.8 4.1 Torsen with prothane polyurethane bushings
Act 6 puck spring clutch good for 310 ft lbs of torque
Oem mazda throw out bearing
Act lightweight flywheel like 10 lbs or so I don't remember exactly

Engine:
Stock 1.6l
racing beat headers
racing beat full exhaust to the dual outlet muffler
Arc intake
3 core xline mishimoto radiator
Mishimoto dual electric fan shroud kit


I plan to 1.8 swap in the future and go turbo not sure yet on exactly each specific part I want. I am still in the research phase.

Will post some pics of the car when I get to a computer
