Default Hey look! Another Canadian!

It's ok, relax, I'm from Toronto, It's almost American.
I can spell (usually) & I don't know everything.
I'm here at MT.net to learn from people who will be good enough to suggest & advise.
I've bought a used MP62 SuperCharger & TD IC as my starting point. I know a Turbo is better, (in your opinion) so I'll try to limit my posting to matters other than the actual blower. Things like Engine Management, Rads, Fans & other items we might have in common.
I've dnlded some of the MS software to try & figure that out. I'm working on reading the manual, & I've been asking lots of questions on various forums and by writing manufacturers / distributers.
My Miata is a 92 Sunburst with a 1.8 swap. It's had a bunch of mods, from the HD bar, to the Tein shocks & SSR Comp wheels, the Moss Lo-Pro headlights to the shiny little Roadster plate at the back.
It has parts from Sparco, Momo, FM & more.
I've done a bit of Auto-X & enjoy spending time with the local club, driving, wrenching, & telling stories.
I'm probably older than most of you, but if you type slowly, I'll try to keep up.

Vince

Welcome Vince; you're one more member of the foreigners' invasion. Our final plan is to take over this site and change it to French and Spanish speaking only so you (being from Toronto) will not be invited.

BTW, you may be older than most but not all members here.

Now, pics of your car or ban!

Regards,

Rafa

Ola! Rafa, we have to be nice to the Americans because...
1) they have the biggest & best forums
2) they have the biggest & best selection of parts
3) they have the biggest military & they will kick our butts in minutes!

I totally agree with you Vince; specially with the 3rd one.

But in the meantime: bienvenido al foro. Déjame saber si te puedo servir en algo.

Regards,

Rafa

All the canadians on this forum just told me they wanted to change your name to StarGayzer.
I like canada because they have Mosport.

Welcome.
Some of the Miataphiles pronounce it StarGeezer.
I actually created the word years ago based on the Canadian habit of always saying "eh?" pronounced "A". I wanted an online name that nobody else had.

StarGehzer, eh Canehdian Miataphile.

Damned Canadians, with their beady eyes, and flapping heads.
