Default Greetings from a noob



Hi everyone I just wanted to introduce myself. I am 22 and fresh out of college as of December. First thing I bought after starting at my job was my 1997 M-Edition. Started in the beginning of January and lived cheaply until the end of March. I ate ramen, pb & j, and oatmeal. I drank water and tea. And practically didn't do anything fun that cost money.

Result:
Got my precious and lost some pounds.

Megasquirt is in the mail and so are the rest of my parts for the COP conversion. I am still looking for some bad stock coils so I can saw off the connectors. I really don't want to destroy my working coils. If anyone has any please let me know.

Rebuild this winter to beef up the internals for a turbo. I have ideas but no parts have been ordered.

99 head swap depends on both availability and cost. Get some head work done.

Boss frog double hoop rollbar and harnesses before rolling in spring. (provided that funds are adequate)

Wide rubber and wide body next summer if funds permit. Traction will be an issue.

We shall see if my rear end holds up. If not I may be looking at an RX7 swap.

I have much more research to do. I will likely be running E85 which requires yet more research.
