Default New here.

Hey all new to Miataturbo. I never liked this site because of the ads but gosh darnit the info on here is just too useful. Yea yea I know I can donate and get the ads removed yada yada.

Anyways, I'm from South Chicago and roll around in a 05 MSM. I don't have any cool exterior mods yet other then some rim's and tire I have yet to put on the car. But I've got a custom intake where I relocated the MAF sensor to the TB side of the IC. Mishimoto FMIC and radiator. FM downpipe. 1" Forge BPV, homemade MBC @ 11lbs. Hopefully soon I'll be getting some injectors and the rest of the catback and some springs.

I plan on hitting up a lot of autoX event's this summer, mostly the WCMC one's just because they are friendly.

Wouldn't do anything. Says it on both sides. I actually kinda like it. It's different from the plain jane silver IC's on everything these days.

lol Yea I guess I could see that. But so does a big frontmount in general. You can't easily see mine when you look at the car. I wasn't going for the whole "trying to hide the IC" look. I was just trying something different.

Umm I dunno... Their the same as a regular NB I would think? I wear an 11 shoe and my gymshoes are too wide to really drive in. But if I wear my pair of puma's it's great.

I don't really know how I feel about the MSM to be honest. Either way it's your car not mine, so welcome and enjoy the stay.
