Default My 96 and some turbo parts

Hey guys, my son just made this link: http://manny33.googlepages.com/miatahome

I'm going to follow Chad's suggestion (once I know from where to where) and also post them.

I got to learn to read! I see you want the size of the IC;that will have to wait till Monday because it's in my tuner's shop along with the Manifold and the rest of the turbo stuff. I'll also be taking pics of an old Toyota he has with a 3L turbo supra engine (which is out of the engine bay at this time BTW). That car's 1/4 mile time was: 9.3 secs in a locally sanctioned race.

Posting the pics on your website is good enough. Everyone can view it that way and the forum pages will load faster. Googlepages is a good way to do it. Nice car.

Thanks Chad, I like it even though I lucked into it. When I started looking for Miatas I was trying to find some NB.

There are practically no local regulations on anything (kind of the old wild west) but not about importing cars; those can't be older than 5 years no matter what.

FWIW, that 96 was $7,000 locally and I thought it was really cheap because we pay about 70% higher for any car here.

I still like the NB more:gay:

BTW, the guy in the pic is not me but my oldest son. He works for Exxon locally and I measure my fuel octane with his help. I guess it's good to be old: I get help from young people all around

It blows my mind what you guys can do with these new technologies!

No more, Phillip is going to end up banning me.

Thanks Magna. I get a sense that you and Braineack are going to enjoy pics of my tuner's shop

My engine bay is going to end up very similar to yours:gay:

One serious question Magna: since I'm really going to be totally involved in the kit's installation; any suggestions about taking pics and when? Sorry I feel like a dumbass but I have to ask. There are no replays of the install afterwards
