Hello, figured I should introduce myself. I recently bought the fourth Miata (1994) that I have owned (previous 92,97,2003). I paid 2K, and I think i got a decent deal. Chassis and engine are in good shape (140K), body above average for a 20 year old car, and the top was swiss cheese.
The ultimate goal for the car is to be a fun toy that I can track without worrying about bringing it home on a trailer after rubbing a tire wall. While I love my Lotus Elise, I am not at a point where I am ok with wrecking it. I have extensive track experience in my past at Summit Point where I used to instruct. I have tracked 2nd gen MR2, 3rd gen RX-7, and 240z.
I have spent the last two weeks cleaning it up so it looks presentable on the street. In addition, I have been reading everything on this and other forums. Performance improvements will be done in following order to ultimately get to FM turbo. I will be tuning the MS3 as I go along, I am really looking forward to that, wish we had tools like that 15 years ago. The old Power FC we used in the RX7 just does not compare…
Wideband - check
MS3 from Reverent - check
CAN board that will connect the wideband to the MS3 - check
exhintake mod - ? Sourced a cam at junkyard, still not sure if worth the trouble
A colleague and I have a challenge who can hit the street first, my Miata with a turbo, or his home-built trike.

Should be a fun summer.
