Default Greetings from the Red Stick

I've been a long time lurker on this board for all the megasquirt info. WAY cooler than....the other place.

I've got a black 94. I got the car with an early m45 sc kit in 2007. Upgrades started almost immediately. In early 2009 i got a deal on an mp62 kit i could not pass up. Car is really fast, but i got yet another good deal i couldn't pass up on a turbo kit that will be installed soon

The kit is a modded FMII I think with what I think is a gt3071 turbo, so lots of upgrades are due along with it. I should have fueling for 300 hp, need a clutch for that, lower final drive, engine mounts, get rid of that god forsaken power steering, stuff like that.

The miata is the 'reliable toy'. I have a golf TDI that is the DD. I'm building a kit car called the MEV Rocket, and I am on a 24 hours of Lemons team running a 240sx.

Hope to learn alot hear and make some cool noises and more powa.

-Brad

Koni yellows, GC coils, poly pushings, FM front sway, no rear sway, aggressive alignment. I have scales so its corner weighted. It handles WAY batter than stock but its still a little tail happy for me, especially as i feed in throttle and weight transfers to the rear. I want to put on my extended top hats to rule out the suspension being on the bumpstops as a problem before i get a new set of springs.

Been on a bit of a sabbatical on that project b/c the lemons effort. We are not running a race until may at the earliest so I plan to hit it up HARD and SOON.

Turbo kit goes on not this weekend but next. Clutch not grabbing as good with the 4:10 gears, so I ordered my FM happy meal today. So much super charger stuff has to come off I might as well install the turbo.
