Default Canadian MSM Joins the Ranks

Hi everyone,

My name is Naresh, but the internet knows me as schmoo. I live in Ottawa, ON, Canada's capital. I'm 38, married, and can function in 3 languages.

My pride and joy is a 2004 MSM that I acquired in 2008 with 26,000km on the odometer. It's about about to hit 60,000km and that's spending 4 months/year in storage.

In 2009, I installed FM's Big Enchilada with Hydra 2.6 and FM's AFCO suspension. I'm still running the FM basemap, but hope to get it tuned this summer.

I started autox in 2008, which is what prompted me to buy the car. I started lapping in 2010 and got hooked, but this year, $ won't let me spend much time on track.

I'm a relative newb to all this stuff as I only did my first oil change in 2008, but I can learn -- done 99% of the work on my car myself. Just be patient with me.

Objectives are to get the car running more efficiently so that it's more like a stock set-up from a daily fuel consumption point of view. Eventually, I'd like to build the motor, but that's not part of my thinking right now.

I'm active on mazda-speed.com, but find miata.net stuffy. Our local club is mco.org.

Welcome, if you have a queer sense of humour you'll fit right in!
