Default de-noobing

another .. thought I would post up and put an end to the late night spying, shadowing group buys, and try to legitimize my post count at least.

don't have a turbo and probably won't get one this season but looking at next year. But the info on it around here is solid and I have some ideas as to what I want to do.

I have a 90 miata that is pretty stock but I have a basement o parts waiting to go in, including some mad tyte JDM **** (5zigen header, RSR exhaust, some Mazdaspeed stuff), which some really seem to hate but that's fine with me Quality > JDM ebay parts, LOL

6UL's are on order.. I want to try the car out on a track if possible this year, which should be doable, once I finish all the work required with the suspension and rollbar install, and once the damn snow melts so I can pull the car out of hibernation

Also looking at adding a MS, there seems to be a alot knowledge around it which is great. Also digging the noob intolerance, which other boards should take note of, really keeps sh*t clean around here.

Probably won't post much until I get involved in the MS side of things, hell, I got more private messages at this point from group buys / parts.

Also looking for a reputable tuner in the Toronto area when the time comes, if anyone knows.. hook it up.

Welcome.
Put your location in your profile so it shows up under your name. Put some info in your signature as well. All that will help in the future.

You better go MS. It's kind of like those Geico commercials.

Magnus (Marco) is in woodbridge, he is a big DSM guy.

I suggest you guys go where you went in the past, TAG.

Tag has a nice DynoJet and a HUGE facility with awesome parking. Hes also between Trafalgar and Ford Drive off the QEW.

If there were enough guys i could put you in touch with Mel and let him know to hook you guys up

Oh and welcome Jmack

I'm only mildly interested in the dyno at this point... for one, my car is NA and I have a replacement i / h / e so I'm not expecting more than 10hp out of all that, hard to get excited about dynoing the car at this point. It's also unlikely that I will have a MS installed by April or so... yeah, that's me being realistic. Even more realistic is that none of those parts are installed and my car is still in storage.

I would also start a new thread for this.

Anyways, now that the drama is over, I ordered some more stuff to my US address today:

FM frame rails
FM cat
Hella headlamps
Falken Azenis in 205/50 for the 6ULs
Front lip OEM
NRG thin quick release

Can't wait to get all this **** in town, I'll need a truck I think

I'm working on the truck situation. LOL


You should bring it out for the dyno day, get a baseline

better yet, we can jam over sometime earlier if you want and i can make sure you get a sweet deal before you put all the parts on.
