Default New Miata Owner from EastBay, Ca

Hi all,

My name is JT and I'm a new owner of a Ti grey 2004 Mazdaspeed Mx-5 with 73k miles I sold my pig of a 2011 Mazdaspeed 3 for this guy.

My plans are to lightly modify the MSM and eventually figure out how to shoehorn a ls3 into it.

I'm coming from mazdaspeedforums.org so I have a rough understanding that I should do a bit of reading before posting silly things :-). I look forward to meeting you guys / gals.

Here's the old love:


For a while I had it nicely modified: cp-e triton exhaust, UR testpipe, ETC tmic, corksport intake & TIH, Cobb AP, and springs on Koni Yellows. Pushing 19ish psi of boost.

and the 2004 Ti MSM GT, bone stock for now:

Thanks guys. I always thought the NB looks like a mini rx-7.

99 nb, going to build the kit from scratch. Just starting to work on the manifold design and turbo selection.

Looks like you got a nice find. Good luck with it!
