My full build report- 2013 Club

NC Performance and Tuning - Engine - MX-5 Miata Forum - forum.miata.net
I purchased this Miata in Spring, 2017. It?s was a bit of a leap of faith as it came from Florida, sight unseen. When it arrived I was a bit disappointed- the mods done by the previous owner were not the quality I expected. Oh well. Time to fix it.

Some things had to be done right away. Tires, suspension, safety items... knowing this was going to be a all-in type of build I picked up a new set of Ohlins coil overs and installed Michelin Pilot Super Sports (245s).

These are amazing dampers that are fully adjustable.

I also installed better sway bars at the time. Goodwin sent over some progress technologies bars.

Then the audio system. This is NOT a track car. It?s a street car/ toy that can be used (ok, will be used) as a track toy. I wanted good audio. I picked up a top of the line Kenwood double din stereo, JL Audio component speakers for the doors, 900w amp, rear speakers and a Kicker sub. I installed all new wires etc. Next, a Maestro RR was wired into the OBD2 feed which allows for both steering wheel controls and gauges displayed on the radio (like torque).

Power was next. My last build was a 1994 with a 2014 Camaro LFX which was fun but for the $$, I decided a turbo 2.5 would be pretty cool....

So I found a 2.5 with 30k and had it shipped to Atlanta. I also decided that Bryan?s kit (Fab9) was drop dead gorgeous and I had to have that Gleason manifold:

Of course I?d also need a new clutch, flywheel, injectors, fuel pump, plugs, etc. I moved the battery to the trunk, improved the oil drain from the EFR 6758, installed the Massive crank balance delete kit, swapped over the crank pulley, the oil pan, the intake manifold. Had to

Port the lower 2.0 intake to fit the 2.5 head.
