Hey everybody, my name is Collin, I'm 20, and I'm from Frederick MD. I'm currently looking to purchase a Miata, and I'm going to look at a blue '90 tomorrow in PA. Hopefully I'll have it turbo'd within a year or so. The car will be my daily driver, so when it does get boost, I plan on running the FM Voodoo II kit at 6psi. I don't really know any local miata guys, so if you are in the Baltimore/Frederick area, hit me up, I'd love to see what other people are planning and doing to their cars

Welcome to MT.net.

There is going to be a local dyno day in Md in November so if you check out the Local Meets sub forum there is info about it. Also ask FeaFlora for install help, I know he is great with a hacksaw.

There are other less expensive ways to make power than the FM kit. Have you checked out the BEGi Shanghai kit?

There are guys on this forum that have been running them for years without failure. I wouldn't steer you wrong.

I am putting a chinese turbo on my built motor and shooting for 300-350hp at the wheels. You should see it at the Dyno day in November.

Wow, that is a great looking Miata. Not sure about that gigantic clown shoe next to it though...odd looking

Alot better shape than when I got mine. Is that the original paint or was there a respray by the PO?
