Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. I have a 2003 miata with 60xxx miles got it from a local car auction 2 years ago after my 2000 Si was stolen. I have loved the car ever since! Im in the Charlotte area of NC if there are any guys on here that live near by. I don't know much about turbos at all so thats why I stumbled upon this forum just wanted to educate myself if I ever decided to build a setup. I guess below I will list what I have done to my miata since I acquired it.

K&N Tyhpoon Intake (Came with the car)
FM springs and KYB AGX shocks (Budget springs and shocks)
Tougue run front lip (Couldn't afford the real GV lip lol)
NB small side skirts, and rear mud guards (Got them for $25 from a local guy)
Roadster sport 2 catback
Falken 512's (Yea budget tire)[IMG]

and, even though those kyb agx shocks are considered "budget" they are great for all around performance. ive been highly impressed with them since i got mine 2 years ago.

Thanks guys for all the comments! This is an old picture from a couple of months ago since then I have add the NB small sides (Plastidipped black lol) I will post up another pic when I get the car back on the ground again Im replacing the rear shocks with some new KYB's at the moment.

Supercooper: I went with the FM springs it drops the car a little bit but not to aggressive the rear has about a 1-2 inch gap, and the front has 1/2 inch gap. The shocks are good I like them they haven't really let me down, but I don't auto cross the car or track it so they might not preform as good in that situation. Its a good setup for a DD with a little bit better stance.

What KYB's are you replacing with? If it's the GR2s I would highly recommend against it if you are using lowering springs. The shocks will blow out in a very short time. I know from experience, BTDT.

Great looking car though, NB's always look good with a hardtop.
