Pirate,

I looked up some stuff in regards to the Non-USA Ford Focus.... ie. Ford Focus RS.....

well.... from the looks of it... 300hp is not NA..... The Focus RS were always turbo charged.... With the current Focus RS..... its a 5 cylinder turbo..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Focus_RS

http://www.ford.co.uk/Cars/NewFocusRS

plus.... we got to many stupid Americans that would kill themselves and others if they had a Focus RS....

I know G.G, that 5-cyl RS is a beast.

I said 300hp n/a about the racing cars of that one series. To me thats quite appealing for a little 4-cyl engine, those f***rs hit 170mph on the straights.

Don't worry G. G., when you leave Earth (to the moon?), your kids will joy ride the f**k out of your Miata! XD

You better off ship it now to Puerto Rico for Meats to safe keep it. Let him pay for the shipping...

heheheheh


i'm not going to give her away........ but if your willing to give the asking shipping price...... I may be willing to let her have a new home......


on the other hand.... maybe not....

maybe getting buried with her and see if I can take her with me into the after wherever could be possible..... :P LOL


what's disappointing is that Supreet has not responed to this thread..... i figured that this topic, mobile audio/video would be up his alley that he would enjoy the pictures and posts some comments... didnt he get out of computers for a bit and rerouted his funds towards mobile audio by pimping his ride up with some boom boom jams????

lolz. Since when are Focus P.o.s? Because people talks**t about them or don't take care of them properly doesn't mean they'res**t.

And why do you want a VXR anyway? I'd take a Pontiac GTO anyday, they're the sames**te anyways.

Yeah,

when I first looked up the Vauxall VXR and the first time I looked at it..... my first thought was, that kinda looks like a Pontiac GTO...

Isnt this car designed by some Pontiac group in Australia?

Ok Guys,


My upgraded head unit is doing well......


For the past 3 days, I have been working on my next audio upgrade to my Miata.

As you know, space is a premium in a Miata. I wanted to add a subwoofer and adding one in the trunk or rear deck is NOT an option for various reasons both practicality and technical wise. So, that leaves me to add this subwoofer into the cabin. And the space that I have choosen is right behind the driver's seat against the back wall. Since I dont use the full travel of the seat, this leaves me right at 4.5" of space. And this space is where I will stuff a sub box...

The following pictures is my build.

Sub - Kenwood KFC-XW800F ( slim mount 8". Only requires 2.75" of mounting depth - from frame to end of magnet.)

Thank you so very much Doc and N1 (aka k0rny)

I had alot of fun building the sub box in the past three days. I need to fine tune it some. One of the main reason I had to build it now is that this weekend, I will be going to a Miata event. It averages 500 miatas that attend this event. Since I upgraded my head unit, I wanted to complete the system by adding this sub box so as I have something to show off and talk about at the event. It's unbelievable what Miata owners do to their miata... They are as crazy enthusiasts just as PC enthusiasts modding their stuff. You see everything.
