Default Hello from Chicago

Hello everyone,
Been driving my 03 nb2 miata stock for a year and finally turbo'd it
I'm currently running adaptronic select ecu and begi t25 gt2554r turbo on my car.
Feels like a supercharger, hopfully I'll get a chance to upgrade to a bigger turbo in the future
No issue so far, but I'm pretty sure I'll still have to learn a lot more about tuning.

Here is my little turd.

I am in Gilberts. Midnight Blue NB01. I may be selling a precision 4828 sometime next spring when you are ready for an upgrade. Good for 350hp or so. I am building a motor to take it but I will likely be upgrading to an EFR turbo next year if things work out.

That might be too much power my motor can handle, mainly just thinking about getting a 2560 as an upgrade. But you never know, so we'll see how it goes

I loved that X1/9. I got several rides at autocross in that thing. I kinda want one but I couldn't help myself with motor swap ideas and other upgrades. It would be a mess.

It's already had the seats replaced (driver at least), cracked header swapped out, hilarious (to me) stubby exhaust made and will be getting a MS2 conversion when I stop being lazy. Hopefully I can stop there?

Thankfully the company selling a Kswap kit for it is way overpriced due to limited demand, so stock (warmed up in the car one) motor setup it is.
