Greeting from yet another newb
Hello all. I have been lurking for a while. I have bought 5 Miatas in the past 3 years. The first was a cheap test car to learn the maintenance and make sure I was "about that life". I quickly found I enjoyed it all and bought a second car to use as parts car for the first. By the end of the second year I was really looking for a lower milage no rust car. In January of this year I finally got the car i was looking for. It was a '92 with 90k or so on it. Most importantly it had zero rust.
This fall I decide turbo life was it. Other than readding on here and test driving 2 MSM's and a BEGI kitted '92 I had no experience with turbo cars. I found another member who was going another route and bought his set up. The only thing I did not get from his car was the coolant reroute, radiator, and wideband. This included his engine (which ate a screw from the throttle body) and transmission. Over the last few weeks I have been putting everything back together and getting it into my car. I am current a few days in the garage away from being done.
My set up includes:
SR20 Garrett Turbo
Tail 38mm EWG
Mitshubishi blow off
RC 460 injectors
MegaSquirt g1 PNP
Custom DP and scream pipe
Custom v-band 2.5" exhaust with Dynamax muffler
Metal core racing cat
Flying Miata Stage 1 happy meal
I also have a water to air intercooler
I am currently running TrakLite Gears in a 15x7 +35 et. They are wearing 205/45/15 Dunlop DZ102. THis may need to change deepending on how bad the traction is.
Anyway..... I hope to continue to read and learn. I will try to add pics and or video later.
