Hi, i subscribed not too long ago awhile before purchasing my mx-5.
i'm a dedicated mazda fan, and i've been into mx-3 and mx-6 for a couple of years now.my last mx-3 topped 12.5@119, with 100% stock engine and drivetrain, out of a fwd it was simply awesome:P but that SOB kept snaping third gear or axels when i was lucky,or simply grenade the diff... all the time,seriously.
but after FUBAR dozens of transmition a year, i decided to go with something else, and i wanted 3 things,convertible, rwd,and turbo.
i was then stuck with 2 afordable choices, toyota mr-2,and the mx-5.
i allready knew a LOT about mazda b-series, since i was racing with a bpt for half a decade, and toyota platform is simply awesome, but SOOO inacessible...i therefore went for a ''half-the-price'' option and bought a NA 90 mx-5.
it's 100% stock with 100k miles on it, not bad for a 20 years old car,i bought the car with a 250whp goal in mind, and since the mx-5 aftermarket parts list is just endless compared to my old mx-3,i could just go where i wanted to:P
i bought the complete artech turbokit, with a gt2871 and a fmic.allready received everything, and i'm now waiting storing time to install everything. i still have my wastegate,BOV,and wideband from my old setup, so i'll be able to tune the MS easely this spring.(MSPNP is just awesome;P)

i'm spending hours and hours reading your forum, i have yet tons of stuff to learn, since it's my first rwd platform and it's kinda different from a BG platfrom.
i'll post tons of pictures in the build thread as soon as winter begins
