Default NSFW My name is Erick. I drive a Miata, I live in Miami, Fl.

I've always heard of this forum, but rarely checked it out, and when I did I would need to have registered and I never got around to it.

Truth is, I never thought I'd be wanting to turbo my Miata, but I had heard this forum is great for lots of in-depth tech information.

Today I was at the Gf's house and hopped on her computer to see if there's any good things for sale. I found something I wanted so I decided to register.

Anywho I'm Erick, I'm 21 years of age and I reside in Miami Beach, Fl.
I have a 95 M Miater (roadster)

Started out life as a Merlot Mica M. Then somewhere along the way it got painted and so I got it like so:


Did a bunch of things to her. Got into a collision and fixed her to be like this again:


Hope to start browsing around, posting and getting used to this board!

Mods thus far consist of an ARC Power chamber intake, Fujitsubo RM-01A exhaust, Mazdaspeed plug wires. I'm running on Tokico Blue shocks with ebay Coilover sleeves. My wheels are from an E30 M-Technic Miata, which I had resprayed to what they look like now.

I had planned to keep my car N/A with megasquirt and AFM delete, but For the price of a rebuild with parts I figured I'd make more power going with a low boost turbo set up.
Hopefully it won't break my bank

Thanks for looking

tone down the lame rice stuff here and you'll survive

also, that intake chamber thing is about as good as a turbonator. sell it to some idiot and use those funds for a turbo build.

those basketweaves are a good choice btw. Glad you got it painted back to merlot or black cherry mica or whatever that is now.

Seriously though, you got some work on the parts list. That arc thing is ------ joke, sell it and make your own cold air. I am jealous of you NA guys, all it takes is some ducting and a ------- naca duct on your headlight + a mesh insert on the turn signal.

he's trying to sell it on ClubRetard:

"I also wanna try and sell my ARC Power Intake chamber. If you don't like how mangled it looks then don't say ---- cause I don't care. It sounds nice as ---- in WOT and I felt some gains to a stock car. I bought it with a hole on the top but got it welded by someone who can weld on aluminum. Also polished it up a little bit. It'll come with the couplers as well. It will not come with the K&N filter you see in the pictures."







NA IS BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

He should sell it on M.net. They would get an unbelievable hard-on for a car on BBS wheels, with a tan top and teal paint.

lol, I admit we love some gay paint over here, but the car was repainted merlow.

I love how people buy this ------- arc chamber crap, yet the air filter is sitting right on top of the header. what the ----?

Whats even worse is everyone of these things is all dented up and looks mangled, yet people still want it. Why? because japan. The ------- thing makes no sense. I am going to go buy a tube of aluminum, and sell it from japan to people here for more money. I think there might actually be a market for that.

if you read his for sale post, he clearly outlines why it's so great:

"It sounds nice as ---- in WOT and I felt some gains to a stock car."

I'm glad you I got you guys all stirred up about a piece of Aluminum I bought for a cheap price off of ebay.

I try not to take this Miata Bolt-on thing too seriously, and can appreciate the fact that you guys are all about performance and ----. But in the end of the day I'm just enjoying my car and messing around with it.

Either way, I plan on changing my car up some bit now that lot's of people are coming down eating at the restaurant I work at thus giving me more money to play with.

I'm just shooting to re-seal my engine, maybe get a rebuilt head off of someone from this forum and buying a turbo kit off of ebay and pair that with an ARTech Manifold and get it running somewhat reliably.

Also gonna change from my Tokico's to a set of Bilsteins, and I'm deciding between buying an ACT clutch/flywheel or a Spec brand clutch and flywheel combo

6-8 PSI should be good enough for me.
