Talking Greetings and happy holidays

Howdy all! I'm Sam.

I just joined the Miata family about 3 weeks ago with a 1999 with about 148,000 miles. My '99 is bone stock (save for some crappy wheels), slower than my v8 4runner, and in dire need of heaps of TLC. But holy crap!!! It's even more fun that I remember them being.

The plan is build a capable auto-x car that I can still daily drive, and not spend an arm&leg&********&ear in gas every week commuting in my truck. Shooting for ~200-220 HP in a reliable FI build most likely via turbo. I'll be piecing it together myself a little at a time.

I've been lurking on this forum as well as a few others trying to absorb as much information as I can, and to source parts for my build. I may be new here, but I understand forum etiquette of looking for an answer before asking questions that have been beat to death. So hopefully you won't see too much of that shiz from me.

Pleased to make yer acquaintances. Looking forward to getting to know the community a bit more.
