Default Greetings from the land of spray tans and fist bumps

Been lurking on and off for a while. It seems more often than not when I'm searching for something Miata related I end up here so I figured I may as well start hanging around and gracing you with my presence. My way of thinking seems to fit in much better here than any other site related to my cars.
I've been tossing the idea of turbocharging my 91 back and forth for a while and now I want to start researching the tuning side a bit to see what I'd be getting into. I have a decent amount of experience with HP Tuners on the GM side of things, but nothing FI related. So I'll be poking around the tuning section for a while.
Some pics below. Both used as alternating DDs, the Miata is the HPDE car and the Vette gets auto-crossed. Nothing major done to either one really, safety stuff for the Miata (seats, harnesses, rollbar) and just "aggressive" alignment and corner weighting for the Vette.

Those are some nice looking cars! Be careful though, your Vette is dangerously close to that Rabbit!

Wanna know how I immediately knew you was from Joisey?

Still, we forgive your heritage. Decent-looking cars, mate. Welcome aboard.

Just stay on your side of the Hudson.

Greetings from Essex County, NJ! I am also looking into going down the FI road on my 1.6. Thinking of grabbing Megasquirt and a wide-band to get comfortable with it before I do anything. If you are close by maybe we can pool our knowledge and help each other out! Where in NJ if I may be so bold?
