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.

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.

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.

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?

posted by  Spanky2324

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.

posted by  Enthusiast

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.

posted by  newyorker

Which I dont reccomend doing. It could have more ill effects than benefits.

posted by  Enthusiast

I wouldnt do it, just saying...kinda how race cars have it for that slipstream effect.
