Default Ginger from GA

What's up dudes? Really digging the forum so far and learning from all these old post. Anyway, my name is C.J. and I'm from Dalton GA.
This is my third miata and I've accepted I can't stay away from them.
I've had this car over two years now and I've done every modification to it myself including paint and bodywork with the help of my uncle spraying it.
I love my car so much but this past year I found myself getting bored with it and the stock 1.6
So, for 2014 I promised myself I would make the car more enjoyable to drive. It's very drivable at the height in these photos as I've went to MATG the past two years with zero issues and drove hard. The only thing I felt is that it was lacking any sort of power.
That brings us here... I ordered a Begi S garrett 2554 system that I'll slowly be upgrading components on to put out more power. I'm not new to turbo cars (had a mk3 supra and srt4) but, I am new to putting a turbo on a car that didn't come from the factory with one. I think I've got it under control though with my mechanic abilities and working in a shop full time (exhaust shop too

I'll post more one I receive the kit and install it. For now here's some photos of the car.

Hey CJ!

My favorite part of your car is watching the old dudes' blood vessels burst at MATG.

Start shopping for a 1.8 rear end.

MY favorite part is that the owner obviously has a multi-personality syndrome.

Sad to m.netters that are super hung up on how awesome a bone stock 93 LE is.

Hilarious to anyone with a shred of dignity and a brain left.

Genuine curiosity and not trying to be an ***, but why spend the money for forced induction on a car that clearly can't benefit from it?

Ahhh it's nice to feel right at home

Also I once almost won a soul on ebay but someone raised the bid at the last second.
