Default Hey hey from SJ!

Hey Everyone,

I'm David and I'm from San Jose, CA. I own a '96 Miata (my second miata) that I bought to do track days. I started to doing track days in 2002 and then took a long break from 2006 to 2012. Well, it was a break from car track days because I was doing them with a motorcycle instead. About six months after my son was born, I sold my motorcycle. After six months, the track bug bit again and decided to pick up my second Miata.

I signed up for this forum because I want to research boost! I want more powah but I want to do it right.

This is my current Mod List:
- Flyin' Miata Stage 2.5 Suspension Kit
- Harddog Hardcore Single Diagonal Roll Bar
- Track Dog Racing Ultrashield Seat
- Ultrashield Harness
- Autopower Seat Brace
- Nardi 330mm Suede Deep Corn Steering Wheel
- NRG Hub and QR
- Jackson Racing Header
- Roadstersport Cat-Back
- 15x8 Advanti Storm S1 wheels
- Replica R-Package front and rear lips
- TSIs
- ProjectG G-String Bikini Top

And now some pictures! These from my most recent track day at Laguna Seca. All pics were taken by Bill **** Photography

If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

Thanks for the welcome. My immediate plans are to get another seat and harness for the passenger side. And I want to get a spoiler of some kind but I haven't decided yet, maybe KG Works style. I do want to get some forced induction but I'm not sure how I want to go about it. I'm leaning towards an off-the-shelf kit for ease of use. I'm also trying to decide if I want to spend the extra money for a CARB legal kit. The car is not my daily driver because I take my son to school everyday but I do drive the car to and from the track and whenever I get chance. Currently, the car passes smog and that is very convenient. But if the turbo set up isn't too hard to remove, then I would consider something that is not smog-friendly.

My wife and I both drive turbo Subarus everyday but I've never had anything but the stock turbo on any car I've owned. So adding a turbo to a car is new to me. I'll probably hold off from the turbo until next year (or at least after this summer) so I can get one more smog check in. I figure that will give me plenty of time to do research and make a decision.
