Yeah. All I have to do to get to my air filter is to remove 5 or so screws and pull the cover off the intake box. But I don't even have to do that because I run without the lid. Probably sucks in more warm air, but it sounds cool when you open the throttle.

My landlord has the CLK Mercedes too, but it's not the AMG version. It's a special edition "baby blue" CLK convertible. She told me that is was one of a kind and the only other person to have that same car was Nicole Kidman, the actress. I was like, "yeah right, whatever", lol.

I drove her car a few times before. It hauls ass. Every gear you go through, you can hear the....."vrooooom, shhh, vrommmmm, shhhhh, vrooooomm shhhhh, etc". There's no turbo under there because it's NA, but it sounds wonderful. It's performance you can actually 'hear' unlike most other cars that try to muffle it way too damn much. Come on, let the engine breathe, lol. THat's I want an exhaust system on my car.

Eventually I want my car's muffler to be the turbo. And not on the Neon.

Now I'm sad how expensive car parts are...even for a car as old as mine.

Miatas own, they are fast as crap on an autocross course. Lots of local guys own them, but I have had the pleasure of beating one once or twice. Almost caught a turbo one one time.

They don't make much power at all stock, usually just under the 100 WHP range. Some guy made 270 WHP turbo'd on stock internals though.

Haha, yeah Miatas are pretty nice. More of a chick car but if you tune it well, it's one hell of a track car.
