Pick on the little guy, why dontcha?? The Miata is a fairly light weight car isn't it? Close to 180 hp in a light enough car is good for plenty of fun. I never really thought of them as cars for OLD men, but GAY men definitely. If you disagree with that statement then you haven't been to San Francisco recently...

Upgrading the turbo for more power won't be an issue...if you think it needs it. There's lots of aftermarket support for the Miata. Certainly, this has to be one of the more affordable true driver's cars you can buy. it may be a litle played out...but there is no denying this ups the ante to keep up with the latest slew of hot subcompacts hitting this year. On a side note, I checked out a hatch Mazda3...really nice...loaded...21K.....

Just under 2500lbs. But, come on. that engine was getting like 142HP and 125TQ without the turbo. They must have the boost turned down to like 4 psi to only add 30HP and 40TQ. What the hell? They must have lost a lot of HP when they took the compression down from 10:1 to put the turbo on. I just think they should have been making the Miata closer to what the S2000 is or the Z3 was. Gotta have 200HP and TQ from a turbo engine or it isnt up with the competition. Just my thoughts.
