Default The Black Guy From Arizona

What's up everybody, I mainly have been lurking for a while just learning in the shadows, but I figured I would join up and see how it goes.

A little about me, I'm from Phoenix, Arizona I have a 91 Miata had it for a little over a year and a half. Here mainly to learn, look stuff up, converse, and share my car I guess. Here are some pictures as of now, will make a build thread later on.

Welcome. Red cars just don't look right without a hardtop IMO.
Yes, I own a red car... without a hardtop.

It is installed and everything is where it needs to be, just trying to set the req fuel and everything so I don't blow it up as I drive it.

Just waiting for this Thursday to attempt to tune it and get it going, but I have read a lot so I'm still learning.

Did you have the aftermarket ECU running the engine naturally aspirated before boost? Usually you can rescale required fuel based on the change in injector size and drive it over to a tuner fine. Just make sure not to hit the boosted section of the map.

Yup, I did and worked fine on that, so I will probably mess with that if needed, I have 460 rx7 injectors in right now the car fires up no problem just bouncing Afr so ill mess around with it this Thursday and see what I can do, probably won't be able to get to a tuner for a little bit but maybe I can talk to some people here and find the time.

Welcome CBM!
I like how how you water cooled both the external wastegate and CHRA.
Squirted before boosted? You will do fine here.

Thanks, I was originally going to go with a kit, but realized I have a yearning to learn everything so I figured I might as well just make my own. Screwed up along the way but hey don't we all.

I'll make a build thread here soon so you guys know where it started. Just at work so yeah.

Appreciate it, i like the coating, I would love to ceramic coat mine one day, but in no rush, just want the car running safely at this point.
