  • New miata!

    Eric and I successfully returned from Dallas with my new car!

    I bummed a ride to MARTA. Eric picked me up from the West Line terminus and drove us to Birmingham Intl. We caught our flight to Dallas and drove back non stop.

    My door-to-door travel time was exactly 23 hours and 44 minutes. Left yesterday at 12.30pm and arrived with the car today at 12.14pm.

    I was up yesterday at 5 and have not slept yet, with exception to 30 minutes that I got circa 8am this morning while Eric was behind the wheel.

    I'm pretty worn out, but feeling pretty good.




    Thanks again to Mr. Rotornut!

            Yeah I know. Car is untuned and runs 10:1. The exhaust tips that were both chrome yesterday are outlined with black today. :lol: This of course is a correctable situation.

            I put the top down and threw it around the curves up by my house. Even with the ****ty suspension, this little bastard is FUN. But it squats in the back like a puppy taking a leak when you nail it.

                        I used to want a 10th AE with FI, the only NB I wanted more was a FI Shinsen! Looks sweet and fast! I assume it will be around for the install day?

                          i would guess so since, everything he posted leads me to believe this is the car he is doing the tein install on.

                            Awesome car! I'm really digging how clean the turbo setup is. That recirc hose is probably the straightest I've ever seen! Is it a custom setup or a kit?

                            Once it's got suspension and rims, that car will be completely badass. Nice score.

                              The car is getting the Tein coilovers.

                              That is the BEGI S4 turbo kit.
