Default Noob but not a noob?

Whats up guys/gals?

I just figured I would re-introduce myself. My name is Brandon. I originally joined the site back in 2010 while I was in Iraq helping a buddy do some research turbo info for his Miata. Anyways here I am now 5 yrs later with a Miata of my own.

I recently picked up this 90 Miata and look forward to doing a turbo setup in the not to distant future. Here is a list of the mods done so far...

Jackson Racing Header
Full exhaust
VMaxx coilovers
Extended front top hats
Flyin Miata front and rear sway bars
Flyin Miata rear subframe brace
Hard Dog double diagonal roll bar
NB Leather seats
15x8 0 offset Grid V's with 195/50/15
NRG Quick release and Wheel
Custom low profile headlights
Pioneer stereo system
GV Front lip
OEM mud flaps

Future mods:
KG Work spoiler
LSD
Put together some kind of turbo for it (after some refresher research)

On to the pics

When I picked it up.






It only had the hard top mounted so I took it off and mounted the soft top back to the car.


Daddy/Daughter cruise time!


Never cared for the hard tops so I mounted it up one final time to take it to its new owner. Also lowered it down a little more too!








Dat ***!


Started working on the low pro headlights...




Did some tweaking with the brackets and it looks a lot better!

Just a little update... I just got settled in after my cross country move from Washington to Florida.

Here is the Miata at her new home...




And a little house warming gift for it....

I got enough space to pull an engine and still have tons of room on the other side.

There's an air force base over that way, iirc.

Just FYI expect that manifold to crack and break within the first month of owning it. I would highly suggest spending a bit more now to buy a good quality manifold and avoid having to deal with a broken shitty one.
