Default Newb from Cincinnati checking in

I've been a lurking member for a while and never really introduced myself. Name is Chris and I'm from a Cincinnati suburb by Kings island.

I own a 93 protege LX that is under the knife right now getting a newer motor and t3 turbo setup. As all of you probably already know, the 90-94 protege lx had the 1.8l bp before the miata.

Some info on my car:
Engine modifications
  • full 2.25in header back exhaust
  • catco high flow cat
  • cone filter
  • all a/c equipment removed from engine bay
  • 4 wire TPS conversion
  • Toga HV oil pump
  • Walbro fuel pump
Drivetrain Modifications
  • corksport ss clutch line
  • b&m short shifter
  • 626 5th gear swap
  • poly shifter bushings
Suspension Modifications
  • KYB GR-2 struts
  • b&g springs
  • zx2 hype flex poly bushing kit
  • mx3 rear lower tie bar
  • manual rack conversion
Brakes
  • stock 4 wheel disk
  • painted calipers
Ice
  • What's that???
Interior Modifications
  • MX3 leather front and rear seats
  • mx3 leather shift boot
  • mx3 rear center console
Exterior Modifications
  • familia grill
  • jdm/cdm spoiler
  • 6000k 35watt HIDs
Wheels/Tires
  • 15in escort gt 7 spoke wheels

coming soon
  • bp-t3
  • MX3 lower dash
  • MX3 steerng rack
  • miata valve cover and timing plastics
  • stage 3 clutch
  • filled motor mounts
  • corksport front and rear strut bars

I know I'm missing a bunch of crap but I'll update as time goes on.

Some other posibilitys I've been considering while the car is undergoing surgery are a 5 lug swap and redoing the interior.

Here's an old pic of my car with the original vj11 baby turbo setup and new leather interior
