"New" guy from Florida (ISC racing mechanic)
Hello, my name is Drake and I live in Florida. I put "new" in quotations in my title because I am new to this forum but not to miatas. I work at ISC Racing here in Winter Haven. I have worked here off and on for the past 2 years, basically I come help Mike out when he needs a car tuned or when he's going to the track with more cars then he can handle by himself. I have worked on more miatas then I can count and I'm only 20.
A little background on myself. I rebuilt my first engine when I was 7, fast forward to 15 when I built my first race engine. Since then I have been building engines for power and reliability. The most power I have built for a car was my 93 FD rx7. I got 550whp out of a stock 13b with just bolt ons and race gas. I then sold the FD and bought my second Subaru wrx. I built that engine to 320awhp, but it just isnt enough fun to drive. So I am now building a stock engine to put back in it and sell that car. My built heads will go on my other wrx, which has a 2.5 block, and shoot for 400awhp. Once that is done I will sell that car. This is where my miata comes in. I have 2 miatas sitting at Mikes right now, one being my race car, one being a 1600 that I got for $300.
Plans for the car:
10:1 Forged Pistons
Garrett gt25 (plan on running around 10psi)
Looking to get 310-350 to the wheels. I miss the feeling of driving a car that I feel like I'm going to die everytime I get near the throttle like my FD was, so thas why I want to build this miata. 320whp in a 1800lb car should pretty much make me feel that way. Well anyways, thanks for reading and I look forward to becoming a part of the turbo Miata community!
