Looks good, but just a question why did you buy another intake when you already had one? Funky yellow colour?

Dustin, what's happening with that old intake? If it's workable, I'll take it off your hands for a small pile.

Pretty much. I also don't know the origin of it, so I really just wanted a history free modification.

Sure. I was going to list it in the buy/sell section for $20, so if you want it just pm me. The intake looks to be close to brand new.

My Bazooka dual coil 8ohm 6.5" tube arrived yesterday, and I proceeded as quickly as possible to get it installed. Here is a picture of the sub all installed:


I'm actually very proud of this install. I used the highest end monster cables I could get, plus I got equipment that matched up really well. It's also installed so I lose virtually no trunk space, plus I keep my spare tire and jack bits etc. From an earlier post, I showed how I mounted the amp on the underside of the trunk board. This is where the subwoofer went:



There was just enough room for the 6.5" tube to fit, but it was a little high so I had to cut out a section so the board could fit around it. It worked perfectly as the 4 speaker terminals are still hidden / protected, and the carpet barely shows the bump.

I also received these today:



They're JBL Pro speakers, and the midbass are made of two woven glass fiber layers with an epoxy-coated Nomex honeycomb core. They look really weird, but they sound great! Extremely clear and precise sound.

A few weird things that I noticed in taking the old speakers out was that the midbass speakers and cross overs were Boston Rally's, but the original oem tweeters were still installed. Sort of strange. Also, my driver side door is missing the plastic weather shield. How mission critical is it for that plastic to be there?

I cut mine out when I did my power locks, a year ago, and haven't missed them. Sub set-up looks great - how does it sound?

The sub sounds very good. I have a remote control for it so I can turn it off when I want, and it definitely fills in the bass that was missing before. It handles the really low stuff perfectly.

Question: I notice when I'm driving the car that a lot of air comes through the vents, and it's usually quite hot. If I turn the heat up to maximum, it is hotter, but when turned to the cool section it's still very hot (much warmer then the miata). Any fixes for this?

If you mean air comes through the vent when the blower is off, I suggest putting it on recirculate. My GF's 2nd gen did that aswell.

haha, yah tell me about it. That has to be the ugliest exhaust tip on this planet. It looks like the muffler is completely stock, but someone welded that on there... *shudder*. However have no fear, this is in my future:


However, I might have to hold off for a bit as I'm pretty sure the top of my radiator is leaking. Simoes couldn't find a leak with the radiator, but noticed the coolant was really weak. Anyways, I had them flush it out when I had the wheels aligned, and now coolant keeps showing up on the top of the cooling fan. So yah... aluminum rad here i come.

And yes, I'm in the city of Esquampton

Hey thanks man. I think the header gave it a little more go, but I can't really tell because I put all those parts in it before the car was insured

Updates! Yesterday I had Tokico shocks and Tanabe Sustec lowering springs put in the car. It looks pretty sic and drives great. I'd highly suggest the Tanabe springs. They're not harsh at all.

I also have some new rims and tires coming, so I'll post pictures up once they're on the car.

Wow I haven't updated this in ages. Here's a quick idea of what has happened to the car:

Tanabe springs removed (wife was very angry I lowered her car)
Installed:
DC Sports catback exhaust
Greddy Radiator Panel
Apexi S-AFC2
ASA 16" Rims
OE style front lip
JDM Carbon gauge cluster
Front and Rear lower Tanabe bars
