Default Hello from Okinawa Japan

Hello everyone my name is Brandon but everyone calls me boost I'm us military station over here in japan. I currently own a 1997 integra type R that I'm in the process of trading for a 2000 6-speed 1.8 I also own a 1991 skyline GTR as a project car. All the honda guys want to kill me for trading a type R for a (miata)not called miata here in japan I forgot what it's called here. But I like rear wheel drive plus I like high horse power numbers. I have a holset hx35 and it will be going on the miata alone with 9:1 compression piston and forged rods.
I have a decent amount of turbo knowledge hints my name is boost but have very little knowledge of these car and come here to get good information.

Welcome, what branch of the military are you in and what do you do there?

Youre friends are right, you will go from being known as boost to rainbow.

Welcome to the forum.


Your name is boost so you must know a great deal about forced induction.

From my experience in the military you don't pick yourself a nickname, the nickname picks you. Not sure which way around it is in your case just yet.

Miata here are are highly respected as mountain terrors. The Honda crowd here is very small. Most people refuse to race N/A let alone turbo miata's in the mountains as they are so deadly and handle like a go cart.

Eunos Roadster I believe is the name of them over there.

Pretty sweet deal getting to live in Japan. I am hoping to visit there when I get out of the military.

O my nickname boost came long before I ever joined the military. I use to own a 98 C5 gt45 turbo corvette plus all I talked about was turbo's and I had a pile of junkyard turbo all over my house so the nickname came alone I just went alone with it. I try to stay away from anything military as much as possible I'm just here for the GI bill and women. Everyone at my job all way ask me a zillion questions when there car break or need a parts.

You know there's tons of people in the Air Force that would kill to go to Japan, I'm sure you can work out some kind of swap or something assuming you've been in long enough. I'm an E&E troop btw

Well I'm not leaving now I make good money selling jdm part and I make a good amount of cola I'm only here 3 more years. I save every penny the air force pays me and live of the money I make selling car parts so far it worked out pretty well. I plan on buying my first house cash when I get out and go back to college. So being overseas was a good thing because It allows me to save money. If I was state side I'd probably be broke trying to pay for a c6 corvette instead of saving for a house. But living here is okay everyone want to come here really bad till they get here only people that like this place are the guys crazy over Asian women. Japanese girls are okay but I just can't be with someone that speak broken English it get really annoying after a while.

Welcome. Well Miata's are under rated, look fragile , and underpowered. There easy to upgrade although the big numbers your looking for may be hard to achieve (but lots of TQ). But way more fun to drive then a FF car. When i was in japan for a few months several years back and it seems like Nissan, Toyota's reign supream in the land of the rising sun. I run the local mountians here every once in awhile and suprise alot of the 600 sport bikes. lol Again Welcome.

You must get sick and tired of hanging out with yourself.

The entire time I was reading what he wrote I was thinking he must not speak English very well, or have a heavy accent or something, I read that part and thought the same exact thing.

I already have a girlfriend here and to answer your question english is my second language but I think I speak it well. Japanese girls get very annoying after a while and get very attached. Japanese girls are like sports cars fun to look at and drive but unpractical for daily driving.

Maybe the girls in Okinawa are harder to deal with. Tokyo was easy for the whole multiple fuckbuddies thing though.

Welcome to the forum.

I'm heading out for basic in a month, got a PMEL job. Can't wait for my ride outta Wisconsin.

How is day to day living over there? I've always thought it would be cool to ge stationed there, but 4 years away from the U.S. seems daunting. Then again my parents were at Clark AB in the Philippines back in the late 80s and said they wouldn't trade that experience for anything.

I bet you make a killing on selling those jdm parts. Just curious, what's the deal with bringing a car back? Is it even possible or would you have to strip all of your go fast parts out and leave the chassis? I assume the USAF contracts out shipping of vehicles, right?
