Default n00b on the forums.

Hey, I thought I would introduce myself...
Im Zach Reis, 21 and from Key West Florida.
I currently own 3 cars, one of which is a Miata that will eventually only do track duty, but until then its a daily racer.

Im envolved in auto cross racing as of right now, I've done a little drifting...and im starting to realize speed is much more my thing.

The Cars
1994 Mazda Miata "C" package
1996 Toyota Camry - Daily beater
1981 Toyota Celica/Supra (waiting on 7m-gte)

Ill post pictures soon enough of the cars, but till then...wait.

-Reis

Ha, Yes.... the first web fourm I ever used I ended up having a fight with the forum admin....needless to say. I was teh fail. I've been on a ton of forums including Roadster drift. Anyways, boosting is not my route with this car. I plan on going with ITB's....but first thing is first.....I want to replace my cyl head with something that has been upgraded with all the goodies, ported, polished, and ready to bolt in. I have that annoying miata tap going on. Anyone know where to get a built head?

Flying Miata will build you a head, but you'll pay out the wazoo for it.

Yuh...I priced one out for about $2,400. If it would make a big difference...then the money doesn't matter. I want to go ITB, so I think a built head for that would do wonders...idk.

you can get a NB 1.6 head (solid lifters i believe on some) and have it PNP'ed at a local machine shop fit some bigger valves etc. for less than 2K. Also why not bore it out people have run 81.5 mm on miatas at 20 psi of boost and had it last 20K miles of hard use before rering. Well atleast 1 person in japan has.

What you put in your first post "Be sensible, and fill in the blanks, eh?" Well, your post would have done just fine without that shot. Im all about fun and games and friendly crap talking....but lets be honest....I don't know you, you don't know me....you atleast have to buy me dinner before you start talking **** hommie....See there I go with that ****.

Anyways, what do you say we clear the air? Id love to be a part of a active Miata forum with people that know what they are talking about. However, when I feel as if I have disrespected....you will know it. Id love to handle this in p.m. but im such a n00b I don't have the correct postcount. If you feel im ban-able and not a potential asset to this forum...take your action. Respect earns respect Ben.
on his 4th post or so after Ben said nothing....also read post #5 here....he's obviously not very smart.
