    :bowdown: :bowdown: :eek3:

    FINALLY!! A turbo Miata from the factory. I have a feeling once a lot of people have them, they'll be competing w/ Evo, SRT4, and STI. Even tho it's a 2door.


    Your thoughts?

    Its only 178hp, does a 0-60 ~7 secs. I dont think it will be eating up the Evo's, sti's or srt-4's. I've driven the Mazdaspeed Miata and its a fun car....gear box is really smooth :)

    178 HP is ALOT for a 4cyl though. I've got 190 in my Maxima STOCK. V6....

    Still....that little ass car doing 0-60 in 7 secs...is pretty good in my opinion.

    But I read also that this year with the Mazdaspeen Miata, will be the last year of that body style. New one is on the mist, so parts could beceme scarce and expensive unless the design change doesn't effect much of the mechanics.

    With a good turbo kit 250+ RWHP is completely possible. FlyinMiata (www.flyinmiata.com) makes some very specialized miata turbo kits. A 2000 pound car with 250+ RWHP makes for an amazing combo.
