Default Whats up mt.net?

I'd like to introduce myself here. I've been lurking around here for about a year. I figured its time to do an intro. Plus there are too many great things for sale in the classifieds.

I'm usually on cr.net. No I'm not hellaflush or riding on my frame rails. I just haven't done much yet to the engine, so it's been more fitting of a forum.

I've got a 90 NA and am going to be slapping a greddy kit on soon. I'm just collecting the last few parts, and hopefully I'll have it installed by the end of the month.

So far I've acquired:
rebuilt and ceramic coated greddy kit
ceramic coated 2.5 Mazda racing DP
mspnp+iat
3in dp6061(was a prototype)
high flow fuel rail
begi intercooler setup
blitz bov

Other then that I'm on tein basics with isc hats. Also have a aluminum radiator of unknown make.

The PO had put a dumbass veilside rip off kit on it and painted the car gray so I'm stuck with it until I want to respray. I'd rather drive a catfish then a mismatched **** box. Also I'm on some 23lb 17s, did I mention I hate the PO? Atleast i have some motegi traklites waiting to be slapped on once I get some rubber.

I'm also just about finished flocking, refinishing, and upholstering my entire interior. Not that you guys care here

I just need injectors and gauges then I'll go for the install. I chose the greddy because I don't want trouble with the police here in Southern CA. My car isn't pretty but it keeps me entertained.

My plans later on are to try and slap some blacktop itbs on with the turbo. Yeah I know it is probably useless, but its worth a shot. I already have a plenum being fabricated. I am also in on the group buy for the adapter plates.

I look forward to being schooled by the best of you and I'll try my best to keep the stupid questions to myself. I don't have any pictures quite frankly because I hate the damn body kit. I'd preffer to not hurt your eyes haha.

Yeah I'll snap some pics of it when I get the chance. It's still tightly wrapped in packing tape, bubble wrap, and some other pain in the ***.

I'm just trying to get the car back into one piece right now. Only thing in my cabin is carpet.

haha no problem. I'd complain but I got the car with a new to the car 60k LNC engine documented, a year old paint job, and aluminum radiator for $900. I'll get by with an ugly car until the bumpers get ripped off and I decide to flare it.

I look forward to learning the ins and outs of the mspnp. I've got alot of reading ahead of me.

Haha yeah I laugh at it's exterior enough. I'll get some of the interior when I'm done. It's really not mt.net friendly though. It has carpet, diamond stitched upholstry, carbon shorty console and radio surround, bright red flocked dash and other parts, Porsche gt3 replica seats, plus misc aluminum pieces like rs refine rings and some il motorsports crap. It's basically everything you guys don't like minus the negative offsets and stickers. I like having a comfortable ride and until I finish up school this will be my dd.

This is a picture of it about a month ago. This is a shitty iphone picture. It is much more red in real life. The red seat is gone and the dash top is now wrapped in diamond print too. I'll get some of it completed later this week hopefully.

Bring on the jokes.

I don't care for the red, either. But, that diamond stitching is cool.
