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

See mazda got the stock suspension right. I just can never wrap my head atound why cobalt suspension is si high like its gonna be a FWD off roading vehicle. But anyway just curoius if you bought it in manual or auto?
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.

Hahaha that funny, but i started driving a manual about a year ago when i got my 1st car and if i dont drive for about 2 weeks or so i just lose the rythm and begin stalling all over again 😂😂 hopefully it'll become 2nd nature soon

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

Why?? They are fairly light weight for a 17 inch wheel

Oh yeah, they are light, but I just hate how they look, and they are super skinny! I don't like running anything less than 8 inches wide

Car looks great man, and yeah they are only 7 inches wide. You could probably squeeze a 225 tire on there but thats as wide as i would be willing to push it. You could always buy some 6UL wheels. I know a ton of miata guys run those.
