Noob to Miataturbo, Miata owner for 9+ years
I just wanted to say hello.
My name is Mike and I have a Silver 91 M45 SC 1.6 Miata w/ A/C no PS. 10 lbs pulley upgrade, boost upgrade with JR timing controller, AFPR, Tokiko HP's, Walbro 190hp FP, 1.8 trans, 94 LSD, front and rear braces top and bottom, TSI's, Rota Grids with Kumho Exsta ASX's 205/45/16's and factory hardtop.
This is my second Miata and I've had it about a year. The PO did the upgrades, I've cleaned it up some and replaced mostly cosmetic issues, correct battery, etc. I just had to replace the S/C mounting bracket which had cracked in 2 places and the bypass actuator was shot.
My previous Miata was a Silver 91 bone stock. The original paint was in great shape also. No peeling. I owned it for 8 years. It needed new shocks/springs, a new top and right front fender replaced due to the wife backing into it in the driveway.
Currently considering ...
1) MegaSquirt pnp upgrade really soon.
2) cold air intake solution
Wrestling with ....
1) lean fuel issue possible? Missing the high RPM kick it had before. My stock fuel pump might be shot? Adjusted AFPR not doing the trick. Feels flat over 5K RPM's
Sorry it's a little lengthy for an intro. I heard about this site from the guys in the MiataMob.
