Default What's new with your Mazda? (Mississippi River and East edition)

The Northwest guys are real nice and all, but everyone knows each other so I figured why not make one over here...


New this weekend will be a downgrade for my turbo. I'm building too much boost with the GT28RS and as much as I so so so want to work with it... it won't be cost effective to do so when I can just go down to a gt28r that I know will work great for 8psi.

Also, the 19th car goes in to get the full bumper repainted because someone swiped a corner of it in a parking lot... and ran off, those bastards lol.

Oh, and by this weekend I should be adding gas at probably 4.50/gallon. I'm so excited... can't you tell?

So what's new with YOUR mazda easteners?!

you'd move your MS3 exhaust a lot faster if you sold it for 185+ shipping lol




Well like I said above, I'm on the RS... This weekend (if it comes by Friday) I'll be moving down to a GT28R

Compressor
Trim = 59.9
A/R = 0.60

Turbine
Trim = 62.6
A/R = 0.64

Should get me down to the 8psi level I want to be at...

If I have time, I might try and squeeze in the indy fog mod. Been wanting to do it forever now, just no time...

Last weekend, swapped out turbos again, on a GT28r now, going to sell the disco potato since it's just too much for the car, and the straight R will do the trick... In the meanwhile I hooked myself up with the indy fog mod, got a new hatch rubber mat all weather thing that btw is freaking awesome! No more stuff sliding around in back! 35% Metalic style tint this past weekend as well (can you tell I'm prepping for August? lol) VT law says no up front, but I was down in CT and my brother had a 'guy' so he took care of us...

And these arrived today...

MB Boost (How fitting right? lol)
18x7.5
48 offset
Wrapped with: Falken Ziex ZE-912

Wow Tony, your ride has changed SO MUCH since I met you at last year's EECMM!

Since the speed3 exhaust install this past November and the GPS install after Christmas, I haven't had the time nor $$ for ANY mods. I NEED to repaint my calipers...get HIDs...some LED tails...some odds/ends.

Thanks for the thread!

Well, everyone knows about most of my mods.

I still have 35watt 6000k HID's to install and I'm picking up a set of sok07 peddles...

Working on the in-dash drive+play install...pretty much only have the dremeling done at this point, then I'll be planing down the back of the cover piece, running the wire behind the stereo/temp controls to the center console, tapping the unit into the 12V supply, and finding a spot for the controller.

And I put in all interior LEDs today as well.

Nice. I almost pulled the trigger on all new LED's I want them... but they aren't a necessity at this point. My bro just did them all over in his charger and damn do they look sweet... ahh well. once the turbo is done, i'll move on to the HID's. and hopefully my secret project... then LED interior lighting

Ooh! I just realized there's a palm sander in the basement...should work to plane down that piece a bit!

As for the LEDs, go for it--$35 from dabears2k, shipping (for me anyway) is practically overnight from San Diego.

I got a nice 3-inch gash on one of my rims yesterday.

Got inserts I need to put in, and that's it until I get my Bush check. Then tint and side skirts maybe.
