Engine modifications -

Mazdapeed Miata oil cap for the bling factor. MSD Blaster 2 coil. Taylor Thundervolt wires. I think it has a B-code VAF on there but its painted black so I can't see the letter. Ceramic coated Pacesetter 4-1 header with Stainless steel flexpipe. It's got a Pacesetter exhaust too, which sounds horrible. By end of summer I should have Megasquirt installed and be running a GSXR1000 IRTB setup that came off of a Miata, with HKS cam gears.

Drivetrain Modifications -

TWM short throw shifter. AWR 95 durometer trans mounts. JRally solid poly passenger mount.

I have an MFactory helical LSD from the group buy currently being packaged and shipped to me that will be installed in a rebuilt transmission using a Mazdaspeed 3-puck sprung hub clutch kit with a 323 GTX flywheel.

Suspension Modifications -

Cusco AS front strut bar. Corksport Type II rear strut bar. MazdaRacer tie bars. Cusco adjustable camber plates. Ground Control coilover sleeves. ZX2 S/R struts. KONI Specials are sitting under my bed waiting to be installed along with my Quikor 1" rear sway bar and MX-3 rear TTL's with Super-Pro bushings.

Brakes -

New OEM parts

Interior Modifications -

CDM Manual Seat Belts. Mazdaspeed Protege Pedal covers, MX3 seats. MX3 center console with extended height arm rest. Protege cup holders. white face gauges
