Red face Is that a pink miata?

First post here!

My names Brooke, 20, currently stationed in VA, and this is my pink unicorn.





And this is the turbo kit I just picked up here at Up Garage, Uruma, Okinawa.
GReddy TD04H with Mines Ecu. Install when I arrive back in the states. Cheers!

Welcome to the forum.

The picture link isn't working.

Army, Navy, or Marines? You said you were from Ft. Eustis and in Okinawa. I didn't think there was any Army there so I figured you might be with the Navy or Marines.

Army. I'm here (in Okinawa) on a 6 month mission. I work on army vessels.

You used your real name. Google makes your world an open book.

The pics of your car were mostly far away and not really noteworthy, but the up close pic of a giant turbo tattoo was worth a laugh. You certainly meant to share it with the world by putting it all over social media, and so it was.

I'm a little disappointed that the owner of this pink car is actually a girl.

On a 0-10 scale of difficulty, finding pictures of your right thigh was roughly a 1.

Welcome.

Ditch the manifold and downpipe at your earliest convenience. The turbo itself is pretty good but the other parts will crack without much effort.

I'm also curious about the Mine's ECU. I had one on one of my Skylines while I was living in Fukuoka, or at least I think I did. It had the Mine's logo on it, but for all I know it was simply a sticker. I didn't install it nor mess with it so I have no idea if it was a good part or failaids.

Mines B63H, haven't been able to find much "legitimate" information on it. Anyone else have any ideas?

It's a stock ECU? Very confused.

Probably just a chipped 1.6 ECU that might handle like.... 5psi if you're lucky.

You can also get HKS PFC FCON setups for that car.

It's an aftermarket ECU.

If anything, it's a "tuned" stock ecu as mentioned above.

I guess it is only a greddy, though.
