Sorry for the late reply jeff. I’m using the lamin x too.
ready to install a little tune from Fab9Tuning next week...hoping for a 15hp bump...maybe a bit more....might get a header this rear....then I can take advantage of the full tune for sure.
The car is with me in FL right now. Heading back to NC, next Thursday. I’ll be taking advantage of a auto x or two, and a bunch of cars and coffee meets. I attended a few last year and there was a pretty good contingent of miatas of all yrs and colors. It’s nice being able to drive the car all yr round for the first time and not have to get winter tires and be concerned about all the salt and sand that eat my P5!

My youngest brother bought an RF last year. He put on a supercharger and just installed a header and midpipe. He said those exhaust pieces really woke the car up with the 'charger.

I bet! I’m a bit concerned with doing any addition power mods, the tranny seems to be the Achilles heal (I have V1) and I’m still under warranty

Hi Antoine, thanks for the props! The car is riding on stock Bilstein’s with Progress springs. Wheels are 17x8 Enkei TS 10’s.

I have read that if you go with the Edelbrock supercharger and plan to track the car, it is best to include headers (Most are illegal in CA.)

Cool...Thanks for the info...That setup has done a great job minimizing wheel gap and those wheels really compliment the car.. (y) How has the ownership experience been? Are you satisfied with the power or want more..?
Love the car, honestly I have enough power for the most part. I mean on the track it would be great, but 90%+ time I’m driving on the busy streets of the NE and can’t even use what I have. As you know I had an 04 MSM, love that car too, but the ND is much more refined and has some nice daily driving features that make it real enjoyable to drive long distances which I love to do. The wife and I are doing rte 66 next summer with a buddy and his wife in our ND1 and ND2. I could do that in the MSM...NO cruise for one thing. Can’t wait!
