Even though the megasquirt i got is a pnp setup still need it a lil modification to run the vics setup on the intake manifold. Use the output for boost on the board to control the selonoid

Wheel alignment wasn't so bad. Alignment on the rear beam was themost difficult using some shims to get the camber and toe were i want it. But it got done. The bwm bottle caps were temporary for the alignment

Rada race lab did all the tuning. Tune and cams woke the lil bp. Cant imagine some  01+ miata pistons and milling the head would complement the cams well. Maybe next year

Here's my stock '91 .... I have  a factory upper hatch spoiler (from Canada) for it...

 

After I finish my Europa it will get some attention!

Paid $70 for the spoiler and a passenger side mirror about 15 years ago ( the spoilers were crazy priced after that) .... will the KIA tranny bolt to a B3?

Been dealing with the famous BP lifter ticking noise. I have take them apart and clean them with no luck. They only seem to last a couple thousand miles before making noise. This time around putting some new oem lifters hopefully they last
