Thanks guys! I'll have to get some updated pics here in a bit. Spent the weekend at Laguna Seca and had a hell of a time.

Megasquirt, intercooler, EV14 injectors... all sorts of goodies on the way. We proved on my friends NB that the older 2.5" Flyin' Miata turbo exhaust (muffler and midpipe w/cat) I've had in the garage for a while was just as quiet as my RacingBeat muffler and factory midpipe, so I may be getting a exhaust upgrade this weekend. It bolted up to his factory downpipe and he claims that it really woke things up. Now I just need something like an RB header and I'll be good to go. I've got a VVT head in the garage waiting for me to get my act together, but that probably won't be till this winter.

I've been looking at the RSpeed/IL 99/00-look Sport Lip for my 01+ bumper, but the TougeRun G Lip is about the same price. I can't quite handle the look of an NB nose without the some sort of lip, factory air dam or otherwise. I lost my factory lip when I gave up my NB1 bumper. It's wearing an NB2 front mask at the moment to cover my bright teal shame. Decisions, decisions. A small, functional spliter would be VERY easy to fabricate either way.

Caboose: At first I was like "LoL wut Porsche?" and then checked the pics again... Still don't get it. :fp: Is it a color thing?

Kashmir: Actually, they just happened to park there that day. Haven't been able to catch it again.

(Adam): I like your truck! I've also got a 73 F250 but I didn't think that was "CR material"

Blackdbl9NB: Thanks man! I've got some MSM goodies in the interior too... I've been trying to find a steering wheel, shift boot and vent rings to really... tie the room together. Right now its all dirty and nasty from my track day in the rain.

Miata neighbors are always the coolest! Had one and then a Z4 hardtop M one more house over, always wanted a picture of a line up like that but all our cars were garage kept. So it couldnt happen...

Welcome! Good taste in color.

Pretty impressive numbers EO2k! Did you have your engine internals built up? Did you put the turbo system together yourself or buy it as a kit?

Thanks! :mrgreen:

Yes, absolutely. There is no way in hell a stock BP is going to take that. Forged rods & pistons, boundary pump, +1 valves, etc etc etc. It was tuned by some asshole who goes by 18psi on MT who is probably banned for life over here :lol:

I had ARTech built the manifold and downpipe for me and then I enlisted the help of a friend to fabricate the charge pipes and exhaust. The rest of the small parts I sourced myself. 99% of the fittings and hoses are Mocal from Bat-Inc, because Mocal is awesome.
