Talking Hello everyone! I'm not exactly new, but I'm back!

Hey everyone, I've owned two miatas in the past and sold them to move onto some other cars. After spending some time at the track in my s2000, I decided that it would be cheaper for me to have fun with a faster and smaller car so I went out and bought a '95 miata for $1700. It feels good to be back in one, even if it's just a weekend car.

I've already thrown some coilovers and r-compounds on her and am hoping to create a set up for around 200whp for the occasional spirited drive, autocross, track day and hpde. This is my first time turbocharging a car ( I've owned a turbo car before though) so i'm trying to do as much research and reading as I can to ensure that I won't mess things up along the way, which I'm sure that I will.

I scored a sweet deal on a Kirkey racing seat, some nb wheels with r-compounds, and some ground control coilovers with kybs or else my first mod would certainly have been an mspnp so that I can get a hang of tuning the car NA before boosting it.

I was originall going to run a shanghai begi setup with ems and bigger injectors, but it seems cheaper to source the parts out and build a kit myself. I'm hoping to run a small t25 set up and keep it fun and relatively cheap, but as I'm well aware, boost is addicting and more power= more $$$.


I'll try and post some pictures when I get home. Anyways, I'm looking forward to being active on the boards again.

Welcome back, get that MS! Look into Artech for hot side parts including exhaust.

I've stumbled upon their site but can't seem to find prices anywhere for their products. Those welds are pure sex though!


I can't exactly claim to be returning to an active status I suppose, since I was never really active when I first joined. I mainly just read and wished I could afford the thread I read whenever I was a broke college student, lol. Thanks for the warm welcomes though!
