Default 1st post longtime learner

Hi guy's, 1st post from a grandad in Richmond Va. area. I have been building a car to get to this point (turbo), mostly street, a few track days. Your knowledge is awesome help, when I put in my used Begi S3, I'll be needing it. Planning that in about a month. I work alot so my post will be after 12:00 a.m. All else I need is a Megasquirt from Brain, some welding on intake tubes, a lot of patience. Thanks much.

Patience is truly a virtue. I've been working on my Miata for nearly 3 years and I've yet to really drive it.

You guys keep saying that, yet you cant keep your manifolds from craking, oil pumps from providing oil, and other things breaking and preventing your from driving the damn car.

meanwhile, my biggest complaint is my a/c wasnt working all summer.
