    Why would you buy a car with secret squirrel parts in it?

    nothing out there that would be cost effective or would even work well

    found out issues have been with ecu pulling timing as going over torque / throttle limits, but above 3k goes like a shower of shit on e85 and 8psi even on pump timings

    So was thinking about taking some compression out of this shit box, are thicker gaskets still a thing these days? Will prob put some rods in it aswell,
    only one company does them at the moment, they are also the only place who does pistons ( low comp ), but still works out to be around $1700 for Pistons and rods

    Whatís the ultimate goal to achieve with your car?

    I havenít even tuned mine, Iím going to get the OFT as Iíve got 2 of the same engine but in a different car, and really I think Iíll be happy with 7,000rpm in mine and just a shiny muffler for better looks and a tiny bit of sound, and the other could benefit from a few extra kw.

    There was a time where I was going to go header full exhaust tune etc... I donít know she seems to go really well to me, yeah could go faster, but Iím actually happy, havenít met an 86 it couldnít beat LOL, no torque dip bitch!

    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Just wanted decent power, and something i can trash the tits off, Engine isn't really a good base if you want to make massive power

    No it appears itís not

    I love the car

    Itís unreal

    Few mods and you can make it into what you want

    Mines pretty basic, but looks great, handles well and best of all handles the C roads better than many cars on standard suspension can manage

    My 2018 mustang could only dream of having such a compliant ride and still corner well

    What do you think itíll end up running the 1/4 in, funny that no one ever talks 1/4 times on the miata forums

    I know they arenít about that, but fuck even when I was on the Magna forums we did drag days FFS

    Iíd love to do enough that itís capable of a high 13, Iíve seen full bolt ons on E85 one has gone high 13ís without boost

    But I donít know, I want willwoods and rays, I spend more time looking at it in the garage than driving it so the brakes look cooler than power mods I canít see LOL
