Default Greetings from a Pittsburgh scrub.

Hey there, my name is John and I drive a super rad 91 Miata( just kidding it's pretty stock) I bought her unmolested and with 60k miles on it.
I'm from Pittsburgh,pa and I'm 22 years old.
As of now my Miata is pretty stock, she's on Megan coilovers and I welded the rear end.
I'm in the process of turboing it, and by process I mean I'm dreaming. I'll hopefully be ordering megasquirt here in a month and gonna start practicing with that and figure out which way I want to go with a build before spring.
I'm sure I'll be talking with a few of you throught this process for some pointers after I use the search button!

Here's my Miata from day 1 to this year

Welcome to the forum. You aren't the only one here who is a Pittburger.

The style bar is a boat anchor and can be discarded and replaced with a real roll bar.

I have the same bumper lip on my car to help promote airflow to may radiator for track days. I'm glad it is flexible for those off track excursions through the weeds.

Haha yeah, it's no longer on the car due to those off-roading activities.
