    No more '92 Silverstone .....

    Thanks, I do miss the '92. I did so much work on it... The sound system was very nice mostly due to the great speakers and installation. I also did a lot of interior improvements with leather seat covers, diamond pleated black venial door cards, and many other nice touches like KG Works...

    No more '92 Silverstone .....

    It's been quite a while since I came to this forum and I thought I'd check in. I sold my supercharged '92 silverstone so it's gone now. However, I still have the White '91 I purchased later. The '91 was basically in good condition but the paint was peeling, the ragtop was more than 20yrs old and...

    Hi from Ct...91 miata ...done some tinkering lately...

    For what it's worth, keep the camber per specs or you'll ruin your tires (assuming you are daily driving). I just had to throw away 2 expensive Bridgestone RE71 tires from the front of my '91 due to too much negative camber......

    low budget upgrades

    Really, the upgrade you can make is to improve your driving skills. If you are already a fast driver and need more power, best get another car. I've spent thousands of dollars on 4 different Miatas (still have one). The most effective power mods are forced induction or NO2. None are low cost and...

    Hello from Atlanta

    Bad news about the seat covers. Basically they are junk! While they looked good and fit reasonably well, the material is of such poor quality that it tore during the installation (which we stitched and repaired), and worse yet, just getting in and out of the car, the bolsters are already...

    Hello from Atlanta

    Hello again, I've been gone for a while but I thought I would come back and update my info. Firstly, I have not added any IC or H2O injection to the car... I did check the compression and it read 172,171,175,175. It would seem that the compression is a bit low but the car still runs pretty...

    low budget upgrades

    I just purchased and installed a new cat back exhaust. The SR-S N1 knock off from Ebay $183.99 (USD) shipped! I installed it myself. It was not that difficult. It's a cheap mod that gives a little power but sounds great :) Here is a vid clip with the sound: http://youtu.be/2tAp1a_uhjY And...

    Hello from Atlanta

    That was my impression as well. I was rather surprised to hear about high temperature issues due to H2O injection. I'll be the first to say that I am no expert in these matters. I just go by what I hear and what I read in the internet. It's very possible that all I've heard is BS and marketing...

    Hello from Atlanta

    All the options mentioned have their respective advantages and disadvantages. The Air to water IC requires perhaps a little less rearrangement of parts than the FMIC. I cant remember exactly what the old Moss unit looked like. I guess I ought to look into it... Yes, it is like using NO. And I...

    low budget upgrades

    Take performance driving lessons and practice as much as you can. It's the best bang foir the money if you want to go fast :) I also have a '92 and when I first started in the mods game, I added a OBX catback exhaust and a homemade cone type filter intake. I think it make about 5 whp more on a...

    Hello from Atlanta

    Not really, I did not know about the 5th injector option. The "cold side" blowers are nice and make more power, but the "cold side" claim is misleading. Actually, when the blower is on the "hot side" the charge gets at least a small chance to cool off whilst in the cross tube and a real chance...

    Hello from Atlanta

    Not wanting to argue or anything, but you are the first person I've heard with negative comments about H2O injection... You might be right, but I have only heard positive things about it. Never heard about high temp issues... I've certainly never heard that H2O injection was anything like a...

    Hello from Atlanta

    Thanks for the link. However, they don't have a Miata specific IC. The problem with buying off-the-shelf units is that fitment can be a nightmare. The guys at Track Dog Racing make a fantastic intercooler for the exact application I have. However, even that unit, with all the brackets fasteners...

    Hello from Atlanta

    Thanks, those are some really nice Panasport knock offs. I don't have an intercooler. They make several kinds but they are all too expensive. I would probably do as well with water injection for a fraction of the cost. I just need to get off my duff and start implementing it :blink1:

    Ive got the Mx5 Bug

    Sounds like a plan :lol:. However, I'd suggest not going with wheels larger than 15" and forget the clutch/flywheel/intake/exhaust until after you've added forced induction (which it sounds like you will do soon :blink1:). I have a '92 with all those modifications and a few more and it's a lot...
