Default new from ky na spec r that needs boost

Hello I just got my miata and I love it!!! It already is a spec r with a newish top koni yellow s and a hardcore rollbar. I know it already has the racing beat sway bar adjustment. Links. I did have a gsr integra so I swapped over my wheels...

If its really an 'R' you should sell it to an autocrosser before you destroy its value of being rare. Regular miatas are too available and Rs too few and far between. I know, at the end of the day its just a miata, but there's ppl that would pay a premium to have the parts that you'll probably end up swapping around anyway.

just a few of me and my niece and my new R...

and i wont sell it to an autocrosser when i am an AUTOXer!

i bought it from an autocrosser and i plan on using the car to its full potential and eventually turboing it and really having it get down... but for now its a very fun dd, this is what should be starting up this weekend that ive been working on for a while...

This thread confuses me. I am having a hard time reconciling the grammar and misinformation with the photos of real people and other legitimately interesting projects.

Hey long time no talk... Still have it. But It suffered thru a pretty bad hail storm. But I got paid 4200. :-) paid off the small loan I had and am replacing the top with a cloth one and rear glass with defrost. So far I have a old fm turbo (cartridge similar to a 2554).mspnp. Walbro 255, fmic and piping, couplers etc, begi heat shield, moss radiator cover, will be buying the fm manifold, elbow. And dp. :-)


Also installed a fm xbrace and rails. Best mod ever!


Also am autoxing on a fresh set of 215 azenis kv
