Default Need some answers

I just bought a 93 miata with 1.6l 5 speed nothing done to the motor and I was wanting to upgrade and make it in to more of a track car. What do you think Turbo or Supercharger? Where is a good place to find parts for them at a reasonable price? Anything will help. Thanks

We all think Turbos suck, hence the name of this site.

Dude, have you ever registered to an online forum? Is this your first one?
These things have been around a few years now, and it's pretty simple. When you register at a forum, read the sticky's, use the SEARCH function, use Google, visit all the companies that sponsor the forum... you might find that a better solution than asking THE SINGLE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTION ON ALL IMPORT FORUMS.

I'll spoon feed you just this one time, but if you're serious about boosting your Miata, then get a clue and help yourself by doing at least a little homework before asking any more questions.

READ EVERY STICKY IN EVERY FORUM!
VISIT ALL THE SPONSORS IN THE VENDOR FORUM!
LOOK THROUGH THE USEFUL SAVED POSTS FORUM AND GET YOUR READ ON!
FOR ***** SAKE, YOU CAN JUST GOOGLE "TURBO MIATA" AND READ FOR HOURS!

And fill out your profile with your location, and put something in your signature... and perhaps you should have started this thread in the MEET&GREET section designed especially for NOOBs. You might want to PM a moderator and ask him to move this thread there... and maybe you could read through a couple of other NOOBs threads in that section to get a good feel for this forum and just maybe some of them have asked a few of the more commonly asked questions that you could learn from... maybe?

Yeap, you got some learning to do. There's TONS of info on this site to help you turbo your car. You just have to look around for it. Go to the main page and start looking at all the different subforums. Go to the DIY turbo section and at the top, there will be "stickied" threads. Each subforum usually has a one or two stickied threads. Read through them. The more you learn, the more questions you have. The search function is always there when you have a question. Once you know the basics, and have an idea for what your goals are, we can help you critique your setup.

Welcome to the forum.
