This time around its suspension lighting and a bit of maintenance
Should all be here next wednesday
FlyinMiata springs (stiffer and lower than stock)
FlyinMiata sways (2 point adjustment front, 3 point rear)
MTEC 6000k HID
Redline Trans Fluid
Redline Diff Fluid
Bosch Platinum Plugs
Clean out TB, etc.
Its gonna be yummy!!
Also looking into 5mm spacers for all 4 corners.
Future plans (before next summer):
3in turboback (straightpipe)
rest is undecided for now
Looks good. I use redline for my diff and trans fluid but unfortunately I need a new rear end in mine. Hows the emissions in your area because I know I smog regs in california suck. I'm just gonna go with a cat back system instead of turboback.
Ehh, I can always get inspected :wink2:
Im looking into a diffuser of this kind
Got my HIDs in today courtesy of eBay. Here are a few snaps.
OEM Smoked Projectors
Another: yes....I NEED wheel spacers.
edit: in the pix, thats not glare, but light reflecting in my lens or off one of my filters or something. Cutoff is sharp as any OEM HIDs ive seen.
Just a picture whoring show, more pix of install and maybe a vid will follow
Springs came powdercoated black!
Sway Bars (rear is 5/8 front is 1")
another look at the nice coating job (they came this way)
Nice. I'll take pics of my new suspenion. Koni yellows sport with H&R springs.
Also pretty set on these wheels in the longer run, they make them for Miata
Race applications (only come in 4x100 and 15 in diameter)
949 Racing 6UL
My goal is to have a stance like this (custom exhaust will be done as well)
Also, can anyone tell me what tires those are, Ive seen the tread pattern before (picture 1 shows it best) but I cant recall what it is.
Info on wheels and other products from 949 Racing (liking some other things there as well :))
OK so we got everything done over the weekend.
Started saturday night at around 9, wrapped up around midnight.
At that point, we had the whole front suspension reassembled and spark plugs in. All that was left was to torque down the upper control arm bolts because we were missing a socket with the right drive for the torque wrench
Started sunday morning at around 11, were completely done everything else and had the car driving around at 4:30
Feels very different now!
Whats with the zoom in on the boost gauge and shock?
Just to show the boost gauge placement and OEM Bilstein shocks.
Oh I love the 6ULs, I wish they had come out with them when I had mine.
Id recommend getting some Azenis, best damn tires for a miata.
Do you think that diffuser is really gonna do anything or is it an appearance mod.
Diffuser is appearance only, IMO it wouldnt have much aero effect on this car as it sits now unless I got sheetmetal and covered the entire underside of the car then leading to a diffuser.
Which I dont reccomend doing. It could have more ill effects than benefits.
I wouldnt do it, just saying...kinda how race cars have it for that slipstream effect.
