Default Hello from Mississauga Ontario

Hello all,

I've been stalking the forum and figured i should do a quick intro.

I got myself BRG miatas, yes miata"s"

First up is my 94, rust bucket. got it super cheap and now realize why it was super cheap as the rockers were completely shot..

so before i even got to drive it, I had to park and strip it.

within two months I bought a 91 brg shell which i plan to transfer everything over to.
This will be my winter project.

I've been reading up on the Megasquirt, and still need to buckle down and make a deciscion on one. I'm still trying to firgure out if I should make a new harness or hack up the stocker, as there'a s bunch of wires that i'll no longer be needing. Also the difficulty level on tuning.

I've picked up some go fast pieces without really thinking too much(which i regret), however i figure it's a learning process.

plans for the car.

make about 200hp ish
make it light, baller -40000mm offset wheels will have to wait
make it more light
ditch whatever i don't want and elminate the engine bay rat nest.
rust proof, yey Canada.

hopefully i'll be able to contribute back one day, as much as i've learned so far, but glad to say hi.

on with the pics to make this less boring.

What, you thought you could hide on an internet forum? Now that's funny. Just a guess but, I bet you could find out who rumbled you from one of the other Miata forums where you, and others, have the same username .......
