Ok so everytime I join a forum I feel like an alcoholic so here it goes...
My name is Tim, Married with 3 boys. Im 31 so Im not in midlife crisis and Im too old to chase that VTEC dream. I am however a track and boost junkie myself. I have a few cars in the stable and am always on the prowl for more
1994 M edition (109k mi)
2007 CA edition Suburban
2008 Evo X (500WHP)
2010 Lancer (DD 4 wife)
I am an A&P mechanic by trade (14 years)so wrenching is never an issue, but time is my enemy. I spent 9 of my 10 years in the Army with the 101st so I have worked on everything from Apaches,Blackhawk,Chinooks,and OH58 to Gulfstream,Hawkers,etc and my favorite B17,B25,DC3,C47 and a few othere odds and ends.
Ok now on to my Miata. This is my second Miata, the first being a 1990 Classic Red I purchased a couple of years ago when CA had 5.00 gas. It has since been sold to a friend who needed a car. After a lot of maintenance I performed I was told recently that it was still running strong and has to be approaching 300k miles.
My current Miata I purchased from my old boss (the warplane guy) for 3400 dollars. Only thing wrong with the car is that it has a small rust spot that was cleaned and filled with bondo until it could get repaired properly. Other than that it came with a Boss Frog Roll Bar (which I will be selling eventually) and Enkei J10 wheels in 15".
I am currently talking to Trackspeed about a nice build and hopefully will have some info soon on what my ultimate plan will be. I thought I would come here and learn as much as I can. I have weighed the performance aspects as far as V8,SC and N/A and I think that going from a 500WHP Evo on a joyride to 100HP miata is just cruel.
Here is a pic of her (I apologize if it is a lil large as the connection here is too slow to upload. I already had this loaded.)
