Ryan Tanner purchased the 2003 Mazda Miata in 2010. Tanner's overall objective is to make the Miata better on the track and street, and of course, to increase its power. Adding a Flyin' Miata GT3071R FM II+ turbo kit satisfied Tanner's hunger for power, while Buddy Club Racing-Spec coilovers, Konig Dial wheels and Maxxis VR-1 tires provided stability on the track. There's no hibernation over the winter for this Miata; Tanner has plans to build the Miata's motor and aims for 375 whp on 93 octane!
