Default New Guy/Gal

Well, I am male not a female. The name came from my gf. We have been building the Miata together and named her Mia. Her forum name is usually Sexi_Lexi (we both drive 2002 IS300's) and since we were sharing the car and forum info I didn't want to go by my usual (Rabbit).

So the car....

rwd 5 speed
t25/t28 turbo with garrett internals

flyin miata o2 clamp

bell engineering rising rate fuel pressure regulator
supra 305 cc injectors (I have 550's now looking to go with a bigger turbo)
custom dual feed fuel rail

Self tuned. I took it to the track last night and on my first run I pulled an [email protected] Thats in the 1/8th mile of course. It was on 10PSI.

Past, current, future...
I've owned many many cars. A few 3rd gen Z28 camaro, a SBC swapped RX7, a non turbo RX7, a turbo RX7, AE86 Corolla, many civics, a few DSM's. I had a 96 Tercell with a JDM Starlett turbo swap in it. Upgraded injectors, turbo, fuel pump, FMIC blah blah blah. It was alright about 270whp but wheel spin sucked.

Currently I daily drive a 2002 Lexus IS300. Nothing special its Absolute Red on staggered 19's. Your basic intake, full exhaust, and a 125 wet shot.

I also have a 1990 DA GSR Integra. Its gutted full roll cage, koni yellows, GC coil over sleeves, 10 gallon fuel cell, custom steel braided fuel lines, aermotive A1000 Fuel pumps. It had an H22 in it but attempting a K24/k20 hybrid swap now.

I also have a 2001 Integra GSR Swapped

JUN dual valve springs
JUN titanium retainers
Ferrea 1mm oversized valves,
'98 Type R cams,
AEM adjustable Cam gears,
Head has been Port & Polished with ceramic coated valve face and combustion chamber,
New OEM valve and cam seals,
Type R valve cover.

Block:
B18C1 with Eagle rods,
JE pistons,
Type R oil pump,
New Honda bearings and seals,
Steel Head bolt inserts and head studs, .
020 stainless wire o-rings,
.043 copper head gasket.

Intake system:
JG Edelbrock intake manifold, DPR 64mm over bored throttle body.

Custom made top mount turbo manifold made by yours truely, along with a customized 3" DP. Running a turbonetics 60-1 twin scroll, ball bearing turbo with dual 38mm tial waste gates.

On 20psi it made 562whp. Tuned with Hondata S100. I've ran it up to 24psi before. On 25" slicks and 16psi I ran a 10.6 in the 1/4.

And yes....I am more than happy to provide photos if anyone is interested.

Just a note....I don't want to sound like that cocky BSing new guy. Only reason I listed all of that because a moderator in another thread asked me to post past/present builds etc.. so they know who they were talking to working with etc..

Sounds like a nice car, and I used to have a 1800 pound 270fwhp Colt and wheel spin was a bitch. They're fun street cars though.

Ahhh yes you're correct. I'll probably build one for the miata. Unsure. I did however weld a very small bracket on it to help support the turbo so it doesn't put strain on it and crack.... Again lol I already cracked it.
