I'd suggest not going to the site listed in your sig. Google lists it as one which downloads an assortment of bad things to unprotected computers.

Welcome to the darkside.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Yup, this is the way i got the car and being that its the only boosted miata i've actually been in, i wouldnt know how it spools compared to others. But as soon as it does start to boost it doesnt seem to waste any time jumping to 9.5 as soon as put my foot in it, but like i said, its the only boosted miata i've been in. But all in all i've had the car since Oct. and im happy with it, no problems so far and is in great shape "a LOT better then the other buckets of **** that i saw for sale when i was looking" even having 180,000 miles and im using it as my DD with no worries

p.s. Cant wait to see some pics of ur miata as soon as ur "in the market" for one

Thanks, that is what i thought and why i bought it right then and there. After seeing so many "low miles great shape, for its age" cars that were just a waste of my time and gass to go look at, this guy didnt post the mileage in the ad, just a link to his webpage, so when going to see the car the first thing i was going to look at was the odometer. Well as it turns out as soon as he pulled up i forgot all about that cause i was so pleasently suprised with the car after so many dissapointments. Hell, he even took me for a test ride "i know sounds gay again" and then let me drive it and again, forgot all about looking at the odometer. It wasnt till we were talkin price my friend had to ask how many miles it had

Looks like a pretty clean fully upgraded Greddy kit.

Here's what I see:
CARB sticker
BEGi 2025
J-pipes w/big IC
Bipes
All-metal Auto-radiator
Hallman MBC
Plugwires
FM heat shield
FM Boost Gauge
Bosch Recirculating BOV
Exhaust is crush-bent but looks aftermarket

Is the stock dif or an upgraded '94+?
Greddy DP or upgraded?
Is there an 02clamp?
What injectors? What color are they if you don't know.
What fuel pump?

Ditch the style bar quick and sell those horrible BBS rims to somebody who loves the ****. Swap the cat out for a test pipe until smog day. Your next purchase is a wideband 02sensor.

And welcome!

Here's what I see:
CARB sticker - yes
BEGi 2025 - yes
J-pipes w/big IC - yes starion
Bipes - yes BUT way retarded
All-metal Auto-radiator - if u mean stock then yes
Hallman MBC - yes
Plugwires - yes
FM heat shield - i think so
FM Boost Gauge - Jackson Racing
Bosch Recirculating BOV - Bailey Motorsports Blow Off Valve (VTA)
Exhaust is crush-bent but looks aftermarket - yes custom made 2.5"

Is the stock dif or an upgraded '94+? - dont know the year but its a Torsen LSD Type II Diff (4.10:1)

Greddy DP or upgraded? - stock POS
Is there an 02clamp? no BUT that is why im here, for u guys who know more about these kind of things and dont mind sharing ur knowledge on what my next steps would be to make my set up a lil better

What injectors? What color are they if you don't know. - STOCK the guy i bought it from told me the next thing i needed to do wass buy some 1.8 injectors

What fuel pump? - Pierburg auxiliary fuel pump

"Ditch the style bar quick and sell those horrible BBS rims to somebody who loves the ****. Swap the cat out for a test pipe until smog day. Your next purchase is a wideband 02sensor"

I know the style bar is a lil on the gay side BUT the BBS rims r from a 95 M edition and lite as ****. Yes again im in the makt for a wideband also.

Thanks again for the help with my list of what i have and what i need to have. Hope this helps others see what im workin with and can help guide me in the right derection
