Default Saying Hi here around!!

Hi guys.

I'm new to this site! My name is Miguel and I'm from Puerto Rico. I have a 2004 Velocity Red Mazdaspeed Miata. A little about me. I'm a piano musician and i'm studding automotive technology.

Since my first car I have always been on mazda. My first car was a bridge ported 1988 Rx7, then followed by a 1990 Rx7 Turbo II, next a 1985 Rx7 and ended with the Mazdaspeed miata. I do all the stuff to my cars, from engine to electrical installation. Well I thinks that's all of it.

Hmm, went from retarded rims to decent fitmen and added splitter. That is a good sign. Keep going in the function>form direction and you will fit in well on this site

yeah but with the addition of stickers, so the improvements were negated.

what Vibrant Exhaust components do you have on your car and how much did they pay you for sponsorship?

He added a double diagonal rollbar so your argument about stickers is invalid. Rollbar > stickers

Welcome. I thought everyone from Puerto Rico lived here now?

I have the aluminum 3" free flow exhaust muffler with 1/4 of the exhaust pipe part in aluminum, no they don't pay me for sponsor, none of them. And what you mean with wrong size? I don't think that theres a rule for tire fitment.

Sixshooter: what you mean with live here now?

there's a rule about trying to maintain a similar diameter to the stock size so 1. it doesn't look out of proportion and 2. doesn't screw up the Speed- and Odometer.

Why must you perpetuate the Boricua rotary stereotype?
