Default Portuguese bitch here

hello guys, I'm new here, I'm Portuguese, I am 32 years old and have a disease, I'm crazy about classic cars. Now I bought my first miata 91 (is the newest collection) and I want it for my way and I know I will find the help you need here. photos the car is stock but not for long..

my miata "91







my JDM levin "84





my stock Ford Escort Mk1 coupé deluxe "68





and the family van Peugeot 504 Renforcé



I still have an Audi 80 "82 and a BMW e30 318i" 84 drift project is changing the engine to e30 335i

enjoy

Welcome to the forum. I think we have another member here from Portugal. I know we have a few from Spain and all around the continent. What are your plans with the car? Track days or just enjoying curvy roads?

We would be happy to help with your search for more power and better suspension and brakes.

I have old cars, too.

1968 Pontiac GTO convertible and 1969 Austin Healey Sprite right now. Both a little rusty.

I'm about to buy a NB1.8 and change everything for this. But now I go to get the idea this compressor 1.6(m45). so I came here peeking which allowed it to better

The m45 is not a good unit for much power. It is easier and more reliable to make more power than an m45 with a small turbo. Also the 1.6 has a small nose on the front of the crankshaft that is not good for driving a supercharger. They break without a supercharger

The 1.8 engines are better. The 1.8 cars have larger brake rotors. The 1.6 rear differentials are weak and break under stock power. The 1.8 rear ends are much stronger. Also, the 1.8 engines have a variable throttle position sensor, which is much better for tuning with the aftermarket engine computer.

then it is better to continue with my idea 1.8
I will buy a 6speed NB1.8 to swap thanks
