New NB Owner in MD

Postby romanservices » February 1st, 2011, 11:53 am

Hey folks, just want to jump in and say hi.

This sunday I picked up our first miata, it's a little rough but should be track worthy by mid summer. I got it from a guy that may have been a member or at lease he told me about this club.

The score..
Black 1999 - 107K

Here is what the previous owner has done (verified visually & with receipts)

Suspension:
Tein Flex coilovers corner balanced @ Atspeed in Hanover, MD Full
Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings along with polyurthane differential mounts.
Racing Beat rear anti-swaybar w/ adjustable endlinks.
DBA slotted brake rotors
Braded brake lines (not installed)
Racing Lugstuds extened length and stronger than stock for the 15/225's
949 Racing light weight lugnuts

Motor:
Mishimoto aluminum radiator
Racing Beat daul tip muffler and Roadster Sport mid-pipe w/ cat.
Motor was build to handle boost w/ lower compression pistions, stronger rods, and 1mm oversized valves both intake and exhaust
225lb walbro intank fuel pump
Mazda Speed competition motor mounts
K&N air filter
Stock limited slip differential


Not Installed but came with it:

Xede ECU with fuel maps on a CD, 550CC injectors, exhaust header and down pipe, Garrett M24 ar.80 turbo (needs to be rebuilt) Confirmed this is the BEGi kit as i got the install manual with it.

Interior:
Stock Nardi steering wheel
Voodoo shift knob
Hard Dog Hardcore rollbar w/ harness tabs
Trackdog Racing 3 guage guagepanel w/ autometer boost guage and a clock

I have a lot of work to do to get this up to my safty/quality standards - I think it's a great place to start as it already has a good amount of mods already done.

have had the car in the garage for the past 6 months collecting dust. Finally got around to finishing the turbo a few weeks ago. Now I'm wishing I had done this before summer. What a fun car. I guess now I finish the intercooler and prep it for the winter storage... Doh!

You may have a month or more of decent weather left this year. Probably should get it on the road before mice move in.
