You can still get a turbo Miata but it's called a Fiat Spider. 1.4l Turbo same engine as the Dart.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

6 speed manual...Had to learn how to drive all over again lol People keep asking me if I lowered it already and are shocked when I tell them its bone stock. Compared to my mothers NC miata the Speed suspension sits about an inch lower than the 'base' models.

Unfortunately I did it before I changed the clutch and flywheel, but I also put her on a dynojet to see what kind of power I'm getting stock. My best pull (in 5th gear) was 156.70 hp and 148.03 tq bone stock. I put in the flyin Miata stage 1 clutch and lightweight flywheel last weekend. and I plan on installing the 'little enchilada' kit from flying Miata as well. They claim that it should get you to 200 whp fairly reliably. We'll see tho. I'll put it back on the dyno after I install everything.

Nice car, you and I have the same wheels!


Although mine had to be machined to fit
