Default Another new guy

Hey everyone, my names Abe
I got a silver 92 with a 99 swap that I just got running a few days ago. Pretty much I'm broke and don't have the money for FI but I'm gonna get this thing to run as well as I can get it to N/A.
Running a crappy tune because I've been busy with work. Flames out of the exhaust

Seems like a no BS kind of place so I joined to gain more knowledge basically.
And yea, I know, search or STFU.



My car after I got it running. Too excited to bother putting the hood back on. Or exhaust. Cops weren't too happy about that.



Me being slow.

My goal is to have a fun car that is capable of doing some track days (not that I have the money for them :( ) but still can be reliable. Its my DD so I can't run infinite pounds of boost if I decide to go turbo. Mostly looking to improve my skills as a driver first, I'm pretty confident that a turbo'd Miata would kill me.

If I get another DD at some point though, I'm gonna make it ridiculous.

We're in the same page, I wish I had another car so I could just really concentrate in building everything from scrath. Also that I had the moola to track it but it'll all come. Good luck with your project hope to see updates soon
