Default 1996 Miata from NC

New Miata owner here. I've been driving BMW's for the most part, but decided to try out a Miata. I bought a 1996 off of a friend with some mods already installed. Hard Dog bar, FM intake, ??? exhaust, asanti/tire rack blah wheels, BFG Rivals 205 square, carbotech pads, recaro pole position, 4pt (soon to be a 5pt harness), nardi wheel, and poly bushings all around.

Definitely fun to drive. Already hit up NC80 and the Blue Ridge, what a blast. But coming from a 540i/6 with a 300hp v8 has left me wanting more power. I'll be lurking and researching for the most part, going to gather info about putting a turbo on in the not-so-distant future. And figure out where all the oil is going (about 1qt every 300-400 miles).
