Default New from illinois

I've been around here for a while now (my roommate has a miata.) I have been looking for a early 90's miata lately for a new experience. I currently own a 97 grandprix gtp which i have had plenty of fun with. it is a supercharged 3.8. I started modding it about 2 years ago and today it sits with: IC, rockers, injectors, 3.1 pulley, and a a list of other minor mods. i also have a ZEX kit but unfortunatily i cannot spray because i am having problems with my fuqing MAF. here are a few pictures!!

Welcome to the forum. Nice first post. I like your Pontiac.

I hate it when no one answers a post from a noob. If you want answers for a turbo Miata, you've come to right place.

I love those cars. Say what you want, but those make one fine daily driver. So comfortable, the ride is very refined, and damn if they aint quick! Welcome to the forum.

But they got traction control... So they'll actually surprise you. If I had to pick a FWD car to daily it would be a GTP or a Millenia S. Comparable cars IMO.

Ex of mine had a supercharged Riviera, essentially the same car, it was ok i guess, but I can think of a lot of cars I'd rather DD.

I know you roommate. Take that yellow **** off your gp, have some self-respect. I'm a legend with women in Springfield. Especially Amanda from Pao. There's also that chick with the fake yeets at Sammy's...she was a really nice milf. Oh, and Kate at that Italian restaurant by the theater.

Springfield was good to me.
