    I know that Dino and I have mentioned our car on this forum many times, but without any pics. Here it finally is. Al Navarro, Meet your twin

    This SR27 features a 2.0L Nissan SR20 DET motor and 5 speed manual, Garrett GT28 turbo, Miata 6" LSD, & 16" 3 Piece Panasport C8 race wheels just to name a few of the goodies. This car has about 350 HP for those who are wondering

    That side port is seems like a great idea for extracting heat from the car. Nice.

    Very nice.
    I like the color a lot.
    Looks fast just sitting their.

    Oh and a good choice for photo backround, Makes the car standout even more.

    Very nice. Please post some more pictures of the engine and of the intercooler with the nose cone off.

    Will a 6" Miata diff really take 350 HP?

    Actually I found out the hard way that it will not. I cracked the diff housing today when messing around with 2005 BMW M3 that has around 500whp (Stage III Active Autowerks Supercharged). I did pull on him too before the diff gave out. I'll be posting more pics later on. Thanks for all the kind words.

    The word in the Miata world is the '90 - '93 6" diff will take no more than 200 whp and only then if you have some mechanical empathy. Their viscous LSDs are basically worthless, quickly becoming open diffs. The '94 and up Torsen diffs are good for around 300 whp. With a lighter car like the SR7 the later diffs may hold up to 350 whp unless you do a lot of drag racing starts.

    Tx. Paul. I think there's going to be quadruplets at least down at 7-7-7...Scott L.'s Superlight is near identical and yours and R1s are definitely from the "gene pool".

    I also like those side vent things...

    Does the side panel really displace heat from the engine compartment or is it more cosmetic?

    Is the driver's seat forward of the passenger's seat as suggested in one pic? Are they adjustable???
