Hola, my name is Travis. Im here to maybe learn about some turbo miata stuff. But first, ill give a little insight on what i have so far.
I have had 23548923475325 projects so Ill try to keep this short. I started in the Honda game. I bought a lot of piles in high school and beat the hell out of them. Ill skip the boring details but in college i did this:
for those not familiar with honda stuff that is a H22 swapped out of a japanese prelude with a t3/t4 slapped on it(circa 06ish). its actually under the knife(read: in pieces) getting a hx40 swapped into it. I have a sleeved block and forged rotating assembly but have never actually brought myself to get it in the car. its currently a F-series shortblock(from an accord) with a prelude head slapped on it. Its a disaster but i enjoy beating up on LS1 cars with it when it runs.
this is around the time i got the miata. I bought this thing from a local guy that enjoys road course and auto-x stuff. Well after going for a ride in it I fell in love with it and it had to be mine. Found out after the fact that the motor was on its last leg and needed to be replaced. the car is actually waiting for its 5th motor since i have owned it(read: im quite hard on stuff). its turbo'd with no means of tuning besides a FMU and a rather aggressive shot of methanol. its surprisingly effective on 15lbs with c16 in the tank, its hard on motors without said c16.

after I graduated college I decided to step things up a bit. I bought an RX7 and dumped more money than I care to discuss into a 408 LS swap. Here is a quick vid of that:
its actually currently broken too as i cant keep a trans in the thing(read: nitrous breaks things)
ANYWAYS, im here because my miata has been sitting in the back of my garage for a few years now being worthless and i need to fix it. a couple years ago i swapped the motor only to find out the motor was messed up. BUT then this deal came along:
Crashed 92 FM turbo 1.6 miata w/ 3.90 torsen in Grand Island, NE
so now i have another good motor AND a (dated) means of tuning the car so i am going to give it another go. So you read all of that to find out that im really just here to maybe figure out the link system and maybe buy/sell some stuff if i actually ever get organized enough to find any of the miata parts ive stashed away over the years.
kay, i think im done with my first post.
