Dean V Intro

Hello!
I'm Dean, and I am currently a sophomore and a economics and political science double major at JMU. Currently I have a 1991 Mazda Miata, with its only change from stock being a Mishimoto radiator.

Waddup. Glad to see yours has lasted longer than my latest did! Was that you that texted me asking if I needed a door? I forgot to save you as a contact

Hey Dean, welcome to the forums! Your photo isn't loading for me...

My first car was also a NA Miata and it served me well all though JMU and my entry into autocrossing/HPDEs. Any plans for yours?

If you don't remember, Dean is the one with the scary self-accelerating Miata we fixed at my house Big Grin

It's a stock silver NA and, as Taylor said, the one that was self-accelerating before we took off the throttle damping valve.

Right now, the plans are some basic maintenance (valve cover gasket, deep clean) and to figure out why it gives me trouble starting after it has sat for about an hour. I've also been thinking about getting FM sway bars, but, right now I'm going to keep enjoying it as it is!

Tyler has a new in package valve cover gasket in the garage. Swing by after this all blows over and we'll knock it out in a few minutes.
