Hello all! I've been lurking for a couple months and decided to make an account. As the title states I live in Augusta, GA where I play drums for the Army.
My car is a 2002 Miata in Crystal Blue. Currently the only things I've done to it are:
-rebuild the shifter/change the tranny fluid
- install an eBay radiator
-15x7 Konig Dial-in wheels
And I have some eBay/bilstien coilovers that I'm going to install once I get the right sized wrenches.
Here's a pic of how it's sitting now:
I plan on turboing the car eventually, but there are a lot of things I need to get squared. away first. I want the car to be totally fresh before I get into adding power. I also need to get better at driving, so far I've done 2 autoxs and I want to do more plus some HPDEs and the like. I don't care about winning, but I do want to learn how to control a car at speed.
Finally, I need to get better at wrenching I've never really done much other than spark plugs and oil changes. I made it through the 60k service, thanks to the multiple bolt-by-bolt guides but between snags and uncooperative weather the car was down for a week. While I understand the idea of installing and tuning a turbo setup, the million little things that can pop up make my head spin.
That brings me to my cry for help: If there are any members in the area who need a hand with something--turbo related or not--PLEASE hit me up. I may not have much experience with cars, but I have a lot of practice following instructions and I would really appreciate the opportunity to learn more about our cars and meet people who care about them. Thanks!
