Welcome, new guy. Don't mind the boys. They like to have their fun.

You have a few useful pieces there and with some time studying you can figure out what should stay and what should go. We can not be held responsible for what the previous owners did to our cars either.

If you run into trouble, use the search button and read the FAQ. After that, post a question about it. If that doesn't yield any help, PM me and I will try to assist.

Good luck.

EDIT: Put your location in so it shows up under your screen name. Somebody helpful might be local to you.

Yes thats the only reason all that header wrap is on there.

Ok so its a little rough but has potential. Definitely need some real engine management though. And for gods sake buy a black can of spray paint for that front lip.

Thanks for the help, from those of you being helpful . The radiator is weird, the cap is on a hose coming form the bottom, its as if its in upside down. I haven't looked far enough yet so figure out what its all about. The heat wrap is for noise and heat reduction, how much of that it actually does, we will just have to see. What I did on the car so far was: remove and replace the black worn carpet with a nice tan one out of an m-edition, before doing that I laid a layer of adhesive polyurethane(dynamat) on the whole floor of the car, behind the sets, around the roll bar, and inside the trunk. I also replaced the seats with m-edition ones, put on new doors with power windows, replaced the hood, and a few other minor touch ups. I ended up getting a 93' m-edition off a guy here locally who had it sitting in a field(canadian weather) for over 5 years. I am now parting out that miata since it has a coolant leak, seized brakes, and a lot of rust. If all goes as planned by mid april I will have my miata on the road so I can start inspecting mechanical issues(if it has any) for now until the snow melts i'll be fixing up the cosmetics, putting the interior back in and then sending it off to paint.

Toronto, here they keep teasing us. Snow, then rain, then sunshine, then snow again.

I have a set of 14x6 BBS mesh wheels and center caps w/ pretty fresh Azenis. You really should buy them and ditch the boat anchors. I will even deliver to your door!

Less than 30 pounds tire and wheel, as opposed to the 50+ you are probably running now.

yums, at 6psi, you're probably all right as long as the PO adjusted the AFPR properly when installed. It's an older BEGi 2025 unit, a quality piece that has provided enough fuel in the correct amount for many thousands of boosted Miatas and other vehicles. With 360cc injectors and a Walbro 255, you could certainly provide enough fuel for 11-12psi, even on a T3/T4. You'll need a Bipes and an O2 clamp to complete the "bandaid" package in order to be complete enough to run that much boost. I'd also highly recommend a new fuel filter.

I'm kind of interested in knowing where your MAF is? I'm pretty sure the 94-97 cars don't do very well at all with blow-through... and I don't see it between the turbo and filter. Where is it?

I'd kinda like to see the manifold and downpipe fab... looks pretty cool... seen a few like that, but yours looks like a one-off done fairly well. I'm not an expert on header wrap, but I'm pretty sure you're not doing yourself any favors by having it on there... especially the way it's installed. Somebody else can chime in, but I'd recommend removing it. You'd be better off insulating the other hoses in the area from the heat rather than trying to keep the heat in the metal.

I'd like to see a pic or two of the intercooler and the rest of the interior... and did you examine your "wideband" and determine if it's wide or narrow?

Actually what happened was I got my turbo miata which I posted about here, and then 3 weeks later I bought the m-edition for parts. I didnt end up needing most of the 1993, hence the part out/ whole car for sale.
