Default 3rd Time's a Charm...hopefully.

Sort of had a whirlwind of Miatas this past few months (9 months or so)

Started out early this year late January/February. Always wanted a Miata, had to be a NB. And eventually wanted to go turbo on it.

Picked up my first Miata, an 01 with 167k miles on it. Tons of rust that I didn't feel like dealing with. Ended up flipping it a few months later after I inspected every nook and cranny. (Had a rain rail leak as well.) Also didn't care for the color, but 6 speed with ABS and Hard S packages.

Then picked up an 02 with 86k miles on it. Drove it for a while. City car so it had tons of minor dings, driver side was resprayed. Black car and cheap paint...so half the car was brown in the sunlight. Had tons of oil leaks and what not. Seemed to have everything done as cheap as possible to it. 6 speed without ABS, sport suspension. Flipped it for a few bucks more than I paid for it last month.

Finally picked up an 01 with 96k miles on it. Drove 5 hours to go grab it from an old guy. Well taken care of and documented maintenance/repairs/mods going back to 2005 when he first bought it. Basically has the full Racing Beat and Flyin Miata catalog on it. Header back, Clutch, Brakes, Suspension, New top, etc. Hoping to slowly do a slow turbo build (acquire parts).

Going to compression test/leak down test the car before I get started though. Hoping to avoid engine work just yet. HP goals are 200-250 whp. Trying to sort out how to run a parallel ECU setup cause NJ inspection is a pain.
