260k miles
1 owner, me and a buddy bought the car in a partner ship(long long term friend)
Water pump is new
Battery is new
Belts are new
All new fluids
New tires
(Unknown condition of the brakes.)
Needs the rear seals on the drums I noticed it was leaking when I peeked at the back of them
Since I've got it, I've stripped the rear seats, door panels back panels, and the radio.

I've add a sparco seat, 2 sparco harness, a momo wheel, and a quick release.

I'm in the process of removing all the vacuum lines, egr and doing any kind of prep work in the bay I can until till I'm ready for swap.

It's getting the diff welded on Thursday because why not, the diff is getting replaced with something stronger. Not sure what yet but open to suggestions

Engine and trans will be there for abut a year then it'll be getting an sr20det(blacktop)with an rb trans

Suspension, I'm gonna go the welded on sleeves not sure which shock yet, the rears will get Trd spring and matching shocks

Not sure on wheels and tires but it'll sit content, not slammed or flush or swag whatever the ****. It's gonna be a practical built drift/ weekend car

Paint I getting buffed out the weekend and it'll be as shiny as new, I will more than likely do some kind of coat or something on top of the paint to give it more shine and keep it protected.

Well you've made it this far. Picture time?

Pulled the carb, battery and basically anything that's in the way. To clean the engine bay some what and get rid of anything I don't need, I'll be removing he old connectors for all the vac lines, head shrinking and re looming the wires(this is a maybe because I still kinda wanna save the factory harness)


Old Miata hood from a Miata I had and totaled when someone pulled in front of me. Image
And the Miata itself

Nice Nice!
Ditch the stock carb. 32/36 weber carb for the win. cheap, easy to install, feels like vtec. :mrgreen:

Diff broke on the 2nd drive. Gonna pop it out this week and have another buddy with an arc welded weld it, mig is to big to fit inside the housing for the spider gears
