Hi,

I thought I would introduce myself.

I live in Coventry in the UK where I study automotive engineering at its university. I am on the final year for the degree now. I love classic cars and previously owned a Triumph Dolomite Sprint until I sold it for the mx5. I don't really know that much about turbos yet but am wanting to find out a lot more into it.

I have a '94 JDM 1.8 mx5 with an IL Motorsport catback exhaust, Bilstein shocks, unknown uprated and lowered springs, HKS cone filter, greenstuff pads and a fast road geometry setup.

Welcome aboard. That's the proper way to do things here!

Good to see another Miata owner from the other side of the pond.

Yes course!









Sorry it was filthy for those shots but they are the only pics I have to hand at the moment. I got some custom springs made after those pics were taken which lowered it 1" and stiffened it up more. Then I also got some decent Yoko A539's on it, handled well thinking it is a 70s saloon.
