Them wheels! Man, what's the hold up!!
No enough time off from work is one of the reasons , also I still need to order coilovers,tires and send the lip kit to get it painted, also in still waiting for some parts from japan to get everything painted at once, I want to make a full conversion for a before and after video 😁🤷‍♂️

I bought them from a friend, he was building a miata but part it out and sold everything so bought the wheels from him
Cool...Checked the website....They no longer sell them.(You got a steal!!!!) Don't ever give them up. You said in an earlier post you ran your intake up to the side vent (Amazing!!!...as after market CAI's destroy the low end torqe of the 1ZZ. I have weight reduced(5lb battery among other things...only internal things like-springs, mounts ,cams ,wheels or where ever I could take it off[and change to lightweight parts] but not changing the car aesthetically ) . When or if you ever have time ...post how you did your side vent intake mod.This is something i would like to do.

Your car looks amazing , clean and nice! I will upload a video to YouTube doing a walkaround and talking about each mod whenever im done to it. The intake was easy ,I replace the battery with a ek honda optima battery to create space for the intake route,I used a sealed perfomance filter like in the picture below , the flexible hose is conected to the side scoop with a custom made adapter, believe me it sucks only cold air

I was looking at a filter style similar to that, or trying to do it on the cheap by modding a Ford intake of the same style to work with the MR2. My biggest concern with the filter kit like you have is not being able to find replacement filters. Not much data available on what filter goes in those when I was looking. Glad to see it fits well thou.

The one that i have its possible to be wash so i have no problem, but you can also try with a factory intake box, that way you can replace the filter with no issues and have the enclosure for the filter.

Thanks bro... that's a pic I took over a year ago.... looks even better now. But I gotta say that's a Great mod!!!!...the flexible hose.....that really opens up some possibilities.I took my monkeywrench racing CAI and went back to stock. But now I know exactly what to do!!! Cant see what else you've put together. Thanks for the input and keep spydering.!!!!

Nice collection of parts! Curious to see how those tow hooks get mounted. I need to put some on my car as well - and those look nice and beefy!

Really nice parts, I notice you are in Puto Rico and have a RHD front stut brace, do you have a RHD car? If you have a LHD car it wont fit. If you want to swap I bought a TRD front brace for a LHD by accident and it wont fit my car, I am in Ireland so let me know.
