Default New NA Owner in Vancouver BC Canada

Hello All! I just picked up a '90 classic red in Vancouver BC with 290k Kms... that's like 180k miles... and she runs like a top. I've done a few maintenance items so far but overall it's just a whole bunch of fun. I did an autocross last weekend and both myself and my Dad had a blast. It's way more fun that the 2010 Subaru WRX that I just sold. Even though the Subaru was putting down 335 AWHP it wasn't nearly as toss-able or communicative as these little roadsters and not much quicker around the cones.



For autocross the stock 1.6 was fun but I'm itching to get on a road course and for that I want moar turbo powa! Maybe there's a 1.8 swap in my near future too. For now I'm just taking it easy on mods and enjoying my new baby.

Here's the mod it came with:

2 1/4" custom exhaust
KYB AGX 8 way adjustable gas shocks
Autopar roll bar
Flyin Miata front swaybar
Mazdacomp front and rear swaybar bushings and endlinks
K&N intake with custom heatshield
Custom headlight air scoop
Flyin Miata front subframe brace
TSW quad alloy wheels
Toyo Proxes R1R tires
Flywheel lightened by 8 1/2 lbs
NGK Iridium spark plugs
NGK spark plug leads
New genuine Mazda battery July 2013
Custom Shift ****



Thanks everyone.
