Default Finally Introducing Myself

I've been lurking for a while now trying to learn as much as I could before finally posting and probably would have waited longer if not for the build thread Andrew started on my 1993 Miata. Anyway, I decided to get a Miata as I heard they were great autocross and track toys and I wanted something that was a little easier to work on and worth a lot less than my 335I. I found a deal on craigslist and started building the car up from there. Before Trackspeed got a hold of it the major upgrades were as follows:

FCM Revalved Bilsteins
RPF-1s with RE-01Rs
RB Intake (I later replaced this with a horrible eBay intake to temporarily fit the IAT sensor)
RB Header
RB Exhaust

There are probably a few other things I'm forgetting but you get the idea.

While the Miata was fun and handled ridiculously well it just wasn't fast enough for my liking (especially since my daily is the 335) and that needed to change. So I found out as much as i could about turbos by reading the posts here and picking up a copy of Maximum Boost. Once I settled on the BEGi S2 I needed to find an installer and that's where Andrew and Trackspeed came in. Full details on the build can be found here:

The car that Trackspeed built, vol. 1: 1993 BEGi S2 turbo track/autocross toy

The car heads to the dyno in a day or so for some final tuning and should put out a nice 225whp when it's all said and done. Should be fun.

Oh. And I know pics are usually required so I attached one from Miatas at MRLS earlier this year.
