If your parents gave you the name "Fonz" at birth, you all get +1 high fives.

Hi Fonz,

Where in Philly are you at? I'm about 20 minutes north of downtown off of I95.
What year is your car? What kind of mods do you have so far?
Anyway - welcome to the forum by another n00b.

I'm closer to North East Philly, mods are nothing special for now: Flying miata coils, engine bay is tuck and Wilwood big brakes up front that's it. I brought a front clip from japan that has an HKS turbo kit and some other cool stuff for 1200 as soon as that get here I'll throw that in, I also ordered Megasquirt and gasket kit for that motor

you brought what?!! For how much?!! I don't get it.

I know for $12k you can bring a pretty slick complete miata in the USA that already has a nicer turbo kit than the HKS installed.
