Meeeeyaaaaddaaaaa! MX5 it up!

And after a short but def­i­nitely needed time off, I am back! And quite frankly the same as ever. Since the last post, I’ve got­ten a few more items upgraded for the black WRX, including:

Now, it’s just await­ing a tune before it’s return to glory!

In the mean­time, I’ve got­ten a 1995 Mazda MX-​5 Miata. I choose a later model NA Miata because it came with a few advantages:

  • 1.8L engine with more torque
  • Torsen LSD
  • It was black

Unfor­tu­nately, when I bought the Miata, the LSD was blown. Even more unfor­tu­nate, the replace­ment diff that I pro­cured was a VLSD from a 1.6L Miata. Tech­ni­cally this was a down­grade, but it was a quar­ter of the price of the Torsen LSD. At some point in the future, I’ll prob­a­bly upgrade, but for the time being I’m pretty happy.

So happy in fact, I washed it:


It’s so happy right now. I’ll update auto­jun­kee as I upgrade this beast.

What do you think about this new track car? Leave a comment!
