Default Greetings from WV

Hello all, my name is Sebastian. I'm 21, and I recently used some saved cash to buy and turbo a Miata. I went with a Miata because of how well the engine responds to being turbo'd (according to the general opinion of the internet), the relatively cheap cost of the car, and most of all, the simplicity of go-kart handling with power going to the rear wheels. Also, because convertible.

I'd recently sold my dd, a 2004 Impreza STi, and used the cash to buy a 1.8 engine and trans off ebay, a no-electronics FM2 turbo kit, rx7 460cc injectors, Innovate wideband, and a MSPNP, along with lots of other FM goodies. I'm a mechanic by trade, so the swap and install was pretty straight forward. But now with the tuning side of things, I'm running into some walls. So I'm finally registering here to say firstly, hello. And secondly... help me.


-Sebastian

Welcome. Southern WV here. But I'm useless when it comes to tuning. If I ever finish my build I will rely on auto tune.

Nothing wrong with that. Pop stars rely on autotune too, and they seem to lead nice lives.

Kick his *** Seabass!

That's all that keeps coming to mind every time I read your name. Very distracting.
