Default Longtime Lurker

Hey All - Been lurking for years and years, just using the classifieds. Here's an intro. Hi!

The car:
  • 1990 Miata
  • 1.8 swap from a '94 using FM's kit
  • Full MSM suspension
  • Full '02 sport brake conversion
  • NB sport 15" wheels
  • de-powered rack - easy version
  • awful, awful, awful plastidip "paint job"

Plans for the car this spring, most parts already acquired:
  • BEGI turbo kit - an ooooold version with an IHI RHB5 turbo, this car lives in Chicago but will eventually move to California, so I needed something with a CARB sticker and I got a great deal. I'm only shooting for maybe 10-12 PSI.
  • Megasquirt
  • RX8 yellowtop injectors
  • OPL 2" radiator
  • M-tuned reroute (lets me keep EGR and I'm clicking "easy mode" on this since I have other things to fabricate)
  • FM hood vents
  • Custom 3" exhaust
  • JIC Magic suspension
  • Poly bushings all around
  • FM sways, RB links
  • fully de-power the steering rack, weld the pinion
  • seam weld the chassis according to FM's diagrams (I'm handy with a welder)
  • FM frame rails
  • 949 racing sport clutch and FM lightweight flywheel
  • actual paint
  • I have some moderately used 205/50 Toyo RA1s to throw on these wheels but I'm contemplating picking up some 15x8s
  • I'd love a 3.9 or 4.10 torsen setup but I'll probably just drive the 4.3 VLSD until it dies

Pictured also is my '97 Yamaha YZF600R. I maintain all my machines on my own. These are both hunkered down in the garage for the winter.

Wow, that is a long time lurker time span. Well, welcome to finally speaking up! Besides the current paint, sounds like you're doing some good work and you have a good list to come. Nice!

"Welcome to CR!" lol
