Default First post on miata turbo

Let me start of by saying hi, and i am looking to buy a miata today i auto crossed my buddies 2002 se and it was probably the most fun ive ever had i am looking to buy a miata now but i am not sure if i should go na or nb. my plans for now would be to autox and drive the car on the weekends for fun and in the future do some track days. what do you guys think as far as reliability and transmissions 5spd vs 6spd i would more then likely build a small diy turbo set up but would like to start out n/a first. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts


Thank, Ryan

Most people would go with the 1.8L, and after that it's really just up to you based on styling etc. You can turbo any of them and make good power. The 6 speed is desirable if you're making more then 220whp, but it can be swapped into any of the 1990-2005 miata range.

I'd probably suggest you create an intro thread in the Meet & Greet section, and use proper grammar.

Also, read the faq first. Your questions are common and the faq is awesome.

I cant even read WTF you are trying to say. I fixed it for you. Get a women first before you get a car so that way you learn what a period is. Also take an English class. It will not only help you not look like a moron, but it may also help you read a repair manual after you screw your car up. Please do a DIY turbo kit. After reading your above post I can't wait to see what you have coming for us. I am already making the popcorn and getting the six pack out of the fridge. Please keep us entertained.

seriously you people are that concerned with grammar to attempt to tear someone apart the first time they post? good job at promoting the forum and making yourself look like a bunch of douche bags at the same time...

Hey, maybe if you posted this in the right section and put a little effort into making it possible for people to read, you might not get any grief. Your first post would have been better if you just said" I am a lazy **** somebody please spoon feed me so I don't have to do anything for myself.

It shows your lack of effort. The two are directly related. Any other questions?

You're asking questions that have been answered several times, and you have put zero effort into understanding how the forum works. This is the best place you can be for performance information regarding the miata, and we want it to stay that way. The forum would be useless if it was just filled with people asking the same questions over and over again.

I understand you're a little butt hurt right now, but just relax, take a deep breath, and take a new approach.

I am not butt hurt at all but instead of trashing someone first post out maybe show them what they need to be looking for or give them a little insight into how the forum works instead of being immature and expecting everyone to be forum guru's. That type of nonsense would turn people away from this site real fast.

rpc, this forum has been painstaking engineered over the years to SPOON FEED you everything you need to know to have a great experience here. The text below was taken directly from the NOOBS READ THIS FIRST STICKY in this very ******* forum that you clearly did not read. So, why don't you go back and read all the sticky's in all the forums you ******* turd before you start talking **** about what we're not doing for you. Welcome.







ENGLISH, PUNCTUATION, TEXT-TYPING, COMPLETE SENTENCES!

“hi gize, dis ebay tubroz lookz sweet is anibuddy usin it I want to roxxs it b4 my bff getz NOZ for his cIvIc.”

If you write something like this, I PROMISE that you will not receive good answers to your questions. Any answers you do get will be given by people just like you, clueless children who never made it past the 3rd grade. If you insist upon text-typing and not using commas and periods, then you’re wasting your time here. Perhaps on some other forum that kind of crap is acceptable, but not here. Quality information, presented in an easy-to-understand format, organized by members who give a **** it what this place is all about. The members who you want to answer your questions… you know, the really smart ones… will not read crap like that. They simply won’t read it. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH NOT SPEAKING ENGLISH VERY WELL… some of our best members are ESL types… those guys usually apologize up-front for their bad grammer, and we typically respond with answers that are a little more precise and have less slang to make it easier on them. Our fellow Miata turbo brothers from around the world often know about **** we don’t, and we welcome them and their poor English (most Scandanavians speak better English than I do anyways). But if you speak English every day, and can’t manage to start your sentences with a capital letter, or put a period at the end… don’t expect anything but **** from the forum. It’s not that WE’RE being snobbish, it’s that YOU’RE AN ADULT, and adults should have standards in all arena’s, even the internet.

“Take it easy man, this is the internet, I don’t have to make sense or use periods and YOU must give me the information I need”… no, we don’t… and no, we won’t.

Here’s why. How many douchebag ******** do you think are riding the bus to their job at Applebee’s, look out the window, see a car they might like to buy someday if they didn’t have an IQ of 80, and feel the absolute overwhelming urge to join a forum and ASK A QUESTION RIGHT ******* NOW? There are many people like this. They start threads like the one above. They never get the information they’re looking for and they never come back. They’ll never spend a dime with any of the sponsors who support the forum, and they’ll never contribute anything to the forum except wasted bandwidth. These douche’s are easy to spot. They never fill out any of their profile information, they post in the wrong forum, they have “drift” somewhere in their username, and without fail, they ask something that is answered in a STICKY.

“You’re just a lame ******* Grammar ****!” Well… fine, maybe a little, but I also have the information you’re looking for and know how to save you $500 on the cost of that repair you don’t need… but I just passed up your little thread because my 9month-old had a little poopie leak past her diaper that’s more interesting than reading your lame-*** attempt at coolness by skipping all vowels and bypassing the shift key for 4 paragraphs.

To: Joe is going to the store. (to is a preposition, and begins a prepositional phrase).
Too: Joe is going to the store too. (Adverb: 1st use of TOO, to replace the word ALSO).
Too: Joe is going to the store too often. (Adverb: 2nd use of TOO, to indicate EXCESS).
Two: The number 2, as in 1+1=two.
All: Too often, Joe takes two friends to the store too.
Take the test: http://www.ibeatyou.com/quiz/9c7303/to-too-or-two

There: There is a turbo under my hood. (used to indicate a place, either concrete or abstract)
Their: Their job is to read this thread. (used to indicate the possessive)
They’re: They’re going to win this race. (they’re is a contraction, short for they are)
All: At last, they’re going to install their turbo under the hood there.
Take the test: http://www.better-english.com/easier/theyre.htm

If a NOOB refuses to follow the above advice, it’s probably because they’re simply not very smart… as in a dumb person… low IQ… little-man syndrome… E-thug… personality disorder… etc… If you ask them politely to make an attempt at better communication, they immediately start talking ****. Don’t worry, they won’t understand anything you tell them even remotely technical and have started yet another useless thread that will hinder future NOOBs by adding to the myriad of bullshit threads that cause NOOBs searching headaches in the first place. This forum prides itself on accurate technical information and is engineered to spoon-feed NOOBs everything they need to know to get started. We try to keep the forum free from bullshit repetitive threads by having good Sticky’s, and being a little tough on NOOBs from the get-go. Anybody with even the slightest sense of humor will get past the initial hazing and move on to be a productive member of the forum. The douchebags who were never going to last anyways get defensive, call us ********, and leave. Bye-Bye!
