Post Josh's 94' GS - Updated 08/11/13
Well for months I was on a search to find a white 94-96 GS. Well I became extremely lucky and came across this http://mx-3.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=78183 Thank you Whisper

So to date this is what the car has in it.

-A 2.5L KLZE 31 motor with a curve neck IM
-94 MX6 ECU and VAF
-ACT Stage 1 clutch (think it has a light flywheel, but I don't remember which)
- Reactive strut tower bars
-Whiteline Swaybar
-AST coilovers, fully corner balanced
-K&N CAI
-2.5" all the way through, high flow cat, ceramic coated headers
-HEI ignition module
-brand new distributor
-SuperPro urethane suspension bushings with custom rear LCA bushings
-Shifter bracket (keeps shifter from falling through - known issue on old MX-3s)
-AWR urethane engine mounts
-Interprep valve springs, KL-DE retainers/locks
-Cusco camber plates in the front
-949 Racing wheels with some Hankook RS2s melted to perfection
-Brakes - Axxis Ultimates in the front, and EBC Greenstuff in the rear - still plenty of pad
-Braided SS brake lines
-I have just recently replaced the shifter bushings with Corksports bronz bushings (A MUST for anyone who has not).
-92-93 bucket seats

minus a couple of minor interior things this car is amazingly clean and well maintained

What she looked like when I first got her :love:

Image
Image
Image

The day I brought her home

Image
Image

My first MOD, the swap of my MS wheel from the RX-8

Image

clear corners and EDM signals

Image
Image
Image
Image

Out with the old ratty speakers and in with the new, Infinity Ref components (I have had them sitting for the RS for like 6 years)

Image
Image
Image
Image

Whoops... Dumb @$$. this is why you dont put your finger behind a piece of plastic your drilling with a hole saw bit...

Image
this is a good picture, if i were to flip the flap open you could see the tendon on the side of my knuckle, and the end of a blood vane was sticking out the side of my finger. I tucked that back in there...

This is what happens when one (I.E. ME) leaves his component module on the ground and he rolls his car. I did not realize the board was broken until after I installed it..

Image

All Fixed and working perfectly

Image

Final product

Image
Image
Image
Image
JDM power folding goodness in that last pic, that mirror is a wide angle passenger mirror too objects are larger than they appear

Old Skool Razzo pedals I have had laying around for ever

Image
Image

Debadged the car, and the start of the new look

Image
Image
Image

3rd eye mod - installed Lexus LED 3rd eye into MX housing

Image
Image
Image

That's it for the time being. But I have more to come. Some of the mods done on this car will eventually be swapped onto my AWD RS.

I figured I would get a WL started before I get too far into things. There is a face lift to follow soon, with the addition of the MS spoiler I have laying around, and larger brakes, and a different rear exhaust tip. You know good stuff

What model Lexus are those LEDs from?? They are nice!! Now all you need for your steering wheel is the Mazda momo horn cover!!!
It looks awesome though I love MX3s in white!! Very clean but I am biased on the though!

wow your new car looks awesome josh. for some reason when i herd you got a klze "winter" car i figured it would be a beater... do you have any pics of it with the rx8 wheel installed? is it a direct fit or is any modification needed that you know of?

how do the tweeters sound in that location? i was thinking of putting them there but i didnt think there was enough room. i ended up putting them onto the panel on the front of the dash that the vin bolts too.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Very clean looking car! Looks awesome with those lights and I'm surprised how well the badge looks. A nice set of MS03s would be cool as f---.

With all these things the car has there is really no room for upgrade...

Post Re: Josh's 94' GS - a new beginning
not much at all. some minor tuning things and exterior and she will be perfect, at least in my eyes :)

I am kind of thinking a 5 lug conversion and running 16x8 +30 MS01's... I need to check clearances first but I think that should be a pretty flush fitment. I don't want a MEXI fitment. MY RS has 17x7.5's with like a +42 so they should clear pretty well.

Wow, awesome find! Like you say, not much else to upgrade! 5-lug would be pimp, though - if I get a second MX (which I hope to do after I return from my Student Exchange next yr), then I will defs be doing that!!
I've also been always trying to figure out if there is a suspension setup that rides comfortably & handles well, as I find my suspension not very comfy, and it could defs handle better! Looks like I've found said setup... and won't be able to afford it for a while yet!!!

OOhh shes nice!! Got the potential to be clean and classy :D Projectors are spoiling it for me a bit a little though :(

5 stud conversion would surely open up a whole new world of wheels beyond MS though wouldnt it?!

Looking forward to seeing it evolve 8)
