Talking Hello from south Florida.

What's up I'm Norbert, I've owned my 1990 miata for about a year. Since i bought my car all I've done was some hardtop side latches and some other simple things nothing major yet.


This is when i brought it home.




I plan on tracking the car but for right now i'm autocrossing every chance i get, As for the turbo I'm still not sure if i should go with a kit or DIY so ill be researching that as well as a hardtop, diff and a few other things i want before i plunge into the world of BOOST!!



So thats about it thanks for checking out my post and have a magical day.

You have that right. I was originally looking into the voodoo II, but I've swayed away thanks to some threads and I'm now looking at DIY since its cheaper and from what it seems a better option.

Yup, this year its been mainly them hosting the SFL events. PCA decided not to.. The next one is the 27th and I'll be in attendance with another couple buddies so if I see you I'll say hi. Might also want to check out gulf coast autocrossers, little drive from miami but they host a good two day event and its very fun.

There is nothing wrong with getting a FM or BEGi no electronics base kit. They come with good quality parts, and a good turbo. Building off of that is a popular option too, not to mention fitment issues are slim to none. DIY is awesome if you have the ability to fabricate a manifold, and downpipe and can afford more "down time".

The no electronics kit is now the first option in my book since its my only car and I have the welding ability of a banana on a crab boat.
