Miata Noober in AZ - bought a basketcase. what was I thinking? :)
A search for "Miata" and "Turbo" forum landed me here, seems like my kind of place.
I run a little video production company, and have done some work here at Firebird at Pro Auto Sport events, slapping GoPro's on weekend warriors and cutting things together.
Craigslist brought me a little bundle of joy... a '90 Miata with rims and a stereo, and a garage full of 'stuff' he was planning to use to track the car out and have a little fun.
So, the 'stuff' - a Jap ship 1.6 and 5-speed tranny, new OEM clutch, 300ish and 400ish injectors, Garret turbo with most/all the piping and lines needed (so he says), Bell FPR, BIPES ACU, gaskets, and (my favorite) the Hayne's manual.
I do lack plumbing, cat back and cat (do I need a high flow?), but besides that, I think I have everything I need to run 5-6lbs of boost, the 300ish(sorry... don't know the exact number) injectors, the ACU and FPR, and turbo, without an intercooler.
I'm reading through the FAQ's, trying to familiarize myself with what I'm doing, but if anyone has any direction in the mean time, it'd be greatly appreciated.
Thx in advance to those that look past my youth, and gimme some pointers - the NOOB.
