Hello fellow Miata enthusiasts!
My name is Aaron, and I am preparing to join the community of the turbo miata. I have had my White '95 since the summer of 07, and am preparing to make the leap to forced induction.
Currently I am active duty Navy with 12 years in, but will be separating from the service soon. Good ol' Uncle Sam is kind enough to be giving me a separation check in the amount of about $47,000, and I have already planned on setting about 6-7K of it towards my beloved Miata. The plan is to order a Begi-S1 kit to begin with, and slowly upgrade little at a time as I learn more about how it all works.
The car is in great shape mechanically, at great expense over the years. I'm pretty sure I have replaced almost every component of the car with the exception of the engine block. Not a lot of performance upgrades at the moment, did the exhintake cam swap for the little bit of low end grunt it gives, but I am hanging onto the other cam as I will be putting it back in once I get the turbo kit. She has Fidanza adjustable cam gears (strictly for the "ooooh, it shines" factor.) but not much else. When I first bought it, I did the typical NOOB upgrades such as a shiny chrome hot air intake, cheapo-fart cannon exhaust, etc. The downgrades have all been removed and all factory components have been put back in thier rightful place. I ordered a DIYPNP just last night, and will be ordering a wideband next week. Baby steps, baby steps.
I'll try to keep my noobness to a minimum, and I promise not to ask any questions with out doing my research (I'm one of the search ****'s over at M.net.) so you may not hear from me for a while.
Thanks in advance for the help!
