Default climbing onboard

Hey all, Im a 22 year old guy in Atlanta with an 02 Emerald mica. Its been said here and there that this is the place to lurk, and Ive been doing quite a bit of that. Im a far way from tackling the turbo, as I have yet to even purchase and install the rollbar, but barring disaster and poverty, It will eventually be tackled once I am sure the car is otherwise sorted out to my satisfaction.

In the meantime, my goal is to attain as much information on boosting these little ******* as possible, and decide what direction to take to get respectable power. BEGI's Shanghai-s has got me freaking excited as I am a cheapass, and I really have to thank you all for your work in the field of manning up and taking a chance on several ebay parts, as I now have a half assed idea of what to do about the intercooler. I genuinely do appreciate the wealth of experience and knowledge I have to wade through.

Anyways, Ill be taking notes, and i think Ill go do just that for several insomnia fueled hours.

thought Id include a few pictures and a little info on the car. Its pretty stock other than Tokico illuminas and flyin miata springs. Im just about to hit 80k on the odometer. Any opinions on the debadging? I like it, but Im wondering if I should keep the front and rear flying M. also, I apologize for the crappy shots.
