In short it's to make a show car that is also street legal and drivable (or as close to it as possible). The car's theme, as you probably guessed, will be the Autobot Bumblebee. I never liked Michael Bay's representation of Bumblebee as a big, burly american muscle car. To me, Bumblebee will always be a small, cute car. In the original series he transformed into a 1960 VW Type 1 (affectionally known as the Beetle).
So here follows a list of the modifications I intend to make (or have already made).
Supercharge the engine to around 160kw minimum with a later goal of 220kw. Local tune shop does the tuning and provides the ECU. (MaxxTuning).
New fuel system for increased flow and E85 support.
V-Maxx coilovers for handling.
Lightweight racing rims
Flyin' Miata 13 pound lightweight flywheel.
Flyin' Miata FM 1 performance clutch.
Brake and clutch line upgrade to braided steel lines.
IL-M Twin tip, stainless steel exhaust
A discrete body work with a front lip, sideskirts and maybe a rear bumper
Low profile boot spoiler
Angel Eyes, dual projector headlights
Chrome fuel door (done)
Smoked LED taillights (done)
Bright, pure yellow matte foil wrap with Autobot decals and emblems.
IL-M bonnet gas lifters (done)
Replace several parts of the now black interior with tan interior for increased contrast and detail.
Racing pedal upgrade
Chrome rims around ventilation, switches, head unit etc (done)
Electroluminescent dash dial faces. (done, but broken. Going to fix) LED floodlights in ice blue color (done)
