Default Hello. My name is Mike and I am Naturally Aspirated.

Just moved to the Hampton Roads area. Joined the Miata Nuts email group but haven't been to any meets, yet.

Currently driving an Evo Orange LS with ~55K. Her name is Yoshimi.

Engine has new plugs and wires thanks to R Speed(moved from ATL) but otherwise stock. Have to give them serious props. Had my soft top replaced just before I moved so I was in a time crunch(my fault). Their supplier messed up the order and sent the wrong top in the correct box. Drove away with some freebies from them when it wasn't really their fault. So thanks guys!

Looking to do a brain transplant with an MS2 before going FI, most likely w/ an FMII. Would like to stay street legal for now and maybe autox a few times/yr. Second car was an 02 Camaro SS, melted faces in a straight line. Then one day a friend offered to let me drive his NB(to the pub, of course) and I was instantly hooked. Next was an 05 MSM, very fun to drive but decidedly meh in the face-melting dept. And now the 00, let's just say I bought it for looks and upgrade potential. So ~350hp would be sweet but that's WAY long term.

Am extremely noobalicious when it comes to engine tweaking but willing to learn. Have learned a metric **** ton just from on/off lurking here for the past year.

So that's me jumpin out of the N/A closet.

shibby.

welcome... definitely recommend picking up MS2/DIYPNP (or even MS3 at this point), before you jump into anything else, to learn the ropes and get used to it etc. I daily drove my miata megasquirted but otherwise stock for a month or so, never had a problem.

Also recommend not mentioning that you've named you car... people will think you've just jumped out of another closet.

Miatanutz is a good group, very social. There are a couple gearheads. If you want to join a crew of performance nuts and think u can hang, stop by longshots billiards on s.military hwy and ask for the owner mike. Do not tell him I sent u just in case you turn out to be lame.

"...you've named your car..."

I was fuzzed out on allergy meds?


Will do the right thing and veto my joining any performance nut crew since I definitely can't hang at this juncture. Thanks for the tip though.

Can't find any pics of my camaro but it was white, so...

Only mod so far is ssd quad tail lights. Have some 15x7 black rota rbs on deck(i.e., in my living room, my wife is very understanding). Haven't decided on tires yet.

Can't seem to find any pics of current ride either and now it's too dark to take any. I'm not havin a real good day in case you couldn't tell.
