That is a nice car. Keep the DIY coming sometime you do things just to say you did even though it may have only cost $40 for the part its the point behind it. I love this kind of stuff.

Yeah I'm not so much a cheap *** as I just like tinkering.

My plans are:

prob-bly some sort of medium sized turbo;
but first I'm gonna have some fun with wheels/tires and suspension.

And I hope to get some track time in so that I can learn to drive a slow car fast; then upgrade some more and drive a fast car really fast.

I had been on miata.net for some time and planed on supercharging, but I'm coming around.

I need to do some reading on hear till I decide that I know what I'm doing well enough to start getting serious on mods.
