  • 1995 Mazda Miata "C" Edition

    My grandmother gave this to me as a car for college back in october. When I first got it, I changed the oil, fuel filter, Spark plugs, wires, valve cover gasket. It had brand new tires when I got it. Had it over a year now. Been alot of work, but I do love the car. I do hate the open dif.

    Mod:
    Exintake Mod
    Brospeed Header
    New Tan Top
    96 motor with 71k miles
    Dual Tip Borla Exhaust
    Aftermarket Cat
    Drop in K&N
    All metal radiator

    Plans:


    16" Bronze Rota Slips
    CAI Turn Signals
    Body work and paint of front bumper and front quarter panel(deep scratch)
    Roll Bar the I\/I kind,lol
    Suspension(havent decided type yet)


    aftermarket Steering Wheel



    This was my grandfather's car. He died of cancer. He loved this car so much that he was cremated and his ashes were driven to the cemetary in this car with the top Down. License plate will say 4Guy.

    Slowly getting it how I wanted. Almost done with so called "performance" parts. leaving it n-a and slow for a while atleast. Still gotta do exaust and an intake. After that I will begin working on the looks.

        This Weekend I am doing Exintake Mod, advancing the timing, and getting a header. If i get the money, I'll also be fabbing up a cold side intake. yeahh, I wanted to get rid of it at first, but I've decided to build it for him. As I finish things, I will make a Mod- list for things completed and take them out of the Plans list

              Completed exintake mod today. Only troubles were a bolt snapping off in the cam cap bracket and I had a few problems with the timing belt. I can def feel a difference and my idle didnt really change at all. header and timing next week hopefully.

                Got the header on today. Thing was a B!#$$. Stock stuff didnt come off easy, then had to lift the motor.lol. Think I have an exaust leak at the header to cat, but thats b-c it only has one bolt right now, the 2nd was giving me trouble and I decided it'd be a job for another day. still have yet to advance my timing. Keep forgetting. Thinking of gutting my cat and putting a vibrant muffler on it. idk yet.

                  Coming from someone who is gutted and daily drives it i wouldn't recommend doing it. You really have to be hard nosed to live with it. And would you leave the radio and HVAC in? Also loud exhaust in a gutted car, which is how mine is, can get very old going down the road...again it takes alot to live with it.

                    Radio yes, well, I just bought an alpine cd player to put in it actually. What is HVAC? Yeah, had my doubts about gutting it. I have stock exaust for now. Having exaust done this summer.

                      Nice!

                      I did a the cat-delete pipe and my car lost all its baws. Put a Magnaflow cat on it and it gave its baws back. I personally don't thinks its worth removing the cat on a N/A engine.

                      Have you ever seen a guy driving a Mazda Miata and thought, “man, I wish that was me!”? Neither have I.
                      Aside from the fact that this car screams “I’m fabulous!” from every angle, this car was made for the guy who wants to drive down the coast with his new scarf from Wal Mart flapping in the breeze. If you own a Miata you're one of three things: in the closet, a woman, or a ******bag.

                        Yeah, looking to do a high flow cat or test pipe. Need to heat wrap my header. Header goes out so far that it touches the steering rack(I guess thats what you call it). Need to heat wrap it to A. seperate it. B. To cool off under the hood a bit.

                          HVAC= heating an a/c. I wish i had my radio in still but the head unit didn't work quite right and I'm looking to find another daily driver as my car moves more towards a weekend/track/ITsomethin car.

                              Good decision. I'll be down there soon, but next time i may be in the Oldsmobile.
