  • What have YOU got done? And how do you like it?

    I'm completely stock still in terms of performance mods, but whenever I get money I want to put it into the car. So what have you fella's done and was it worth the money?

      RE: What have YOU got done? And how do you like it?

      I've got a stack of mufflers in my boiler room that I cycle through whenever I feel like it. Stock one came off as soon as I bought the car, replaced by one off of a Mazdaspeed Miata which sounds a bit more aggressive. I've got an Enthuza XR Lightweight for race days that is just freaking painful, so it stays off for the most part.

      Now, if I bumped up into CSP, I know I'd love to install an RB 4:1 header, a Flyin' Miata midpipe, and their single tip muffler, then throw in a lightweight clutch and flywheel. Although they say that the Miata engine responds better to forced induction, so maybe I need to look into SM2.

          That's true, but I like N/A! I'm screwed up in the head like that.

            You need to convince jack to boost his miata, or supercharge it or something~~~~

              Nahh you ain't screwed up in the head. Casey is. He's yet to experience the glory of a NA powerband. It's nice driving without the hand of god suddenly smacking you. I've been thinking of checking out some different mufflers, not sure where to start though. I really do quite like the stock tone on the NA8.

                  If you gave that beamer the same horsepower but through a turbo... well then it really would blow.

                    RE: What have YOU got done? And how do you like it?

                    I have:

                    RB header
                    AFM delete
                    Cat delete
                    HKS filter and intake relocated
                    Megasquirt PNP ECU

                    ...that's it engine wise I think. I am doing ITB's slowly. They aren't really priority. The car is quick enough for me and what I do. I would like some more power but nothing crazy. Around 160-170 would be really good.

                      Are you using a kit for the ITBs, or are you building something up yourself? I'm definitely jealous of all the OBD I cars that can get away with standalones.

                        Nope, making them. Using a stock Miata intake manifold, cutting it, and using GSXR600 throttle bodies.

                          Simon good luck with the ITB's you should take pictures as you go along and make a DYI thread in here so others can do the same. Would be a great addition to the website.
