The new guy
Hey ladies and gents, my name is Drew and I just acquired a white '94 bone stock miata. I don't have pictures currently and I'm at work on lunch but if you want I can google one and whip it up on here real quick (insert awkward smile). I'm from NE Texas, 22 y.o., done with school, currently buying a house from my pop. I also have a 2013 manual scion tc, I know some people are thinking "dafuq why no frs?!" but I was able to drive-off the lot with it paid in full which is a great feeling. However I'm ready for a fun car.
I'm really excited to get into this, I can do what I want now because this isn't going to be daily where I depend on it, it's my afterwork/weekend car. I wish I could jump into forced induction and buy everything now, but that'd be too noob. The most I've ever done on a car was roll fenders, change out suspension, mild body work, and engine maintenance. I'm also really good at the fuel pump.
To do list:
-Thinking getting MS2 with a wideband and upgrading injectors as a little bit of a beginners course to turbo. I've already bookmarked a lot of good threads on here to teach me more about turbos.
-After that I'm going to work on upgrading suspension. I'm very interested on working with this "wishbone" type setup.
-I might lose some of y'all here. I really want to get AK v1 flares for all corners and run 15x10 et 20-25 with 205/50's. I've got a guy who paints cars as a hobby and told me to bring it on in when I'm ready, I'm wanting to get a satin color.
-Upgrade interior, roll bar,get a hard top, new seats, new steering wheel etc. Install frame rails, skid plate, motor mounts.
In the end I would love to finish turbo and appearance around the same time, there's always something to modify on these cars which I find awesome. I have a Nikon D5100 and I love going to car meets and taking pictures, the next one I'll be at is DFW Alliance. I also photoshop and edit pictures in my spare time for people who want their pictures done. Now I just need to kick my girlfriend's car out of the garage...
TL;DR I'm Drew, who you?
