Default New to MT.net from SE Michigan

Hey all, I'm Adam. I've had my '99 Leather Package for a little over a year now. The build has been pretty slow so far, since most of my time is dedicated to my Formula SAE team. I'm lead suspension design for Kettering University FSAE.

So far, I've got the basics covered. Homebrew Bilstein coilovers, HDHCHTDDM2 roll bar, SSR Competitions (16x7), Kirkey seat, MiataRoadster short shifter, etc..

I just got it running on a second-hand Brain-built MS2 yesterday. So, it's now time to start looking for deals to build a turbo setup. I'll likely be running a GT2560r, unsure about manifold or DP, but will probably inquire in Artech stuff. I already have a 2.5" exhaust, so it'll get me started, but I'll probably try to find a 3" in the long run

I'm definitely liking MT.net so far, and can probably add some good info as well, at least with suspension/chassis setup.

Shitty picture is shitty.




Better picture is better (lacking new wheels, though).

Thanks. The Kirkey is just fine. I'm pretty sure it'd be terrible if it didn't fit the driver perfectly, mine fits me just like a glove. I've driven over 4 hours, and wouldn't have even wanted to have a stock seat, given the chance.
