Default Hey! Noob in Rising Sun, MD

I bought a 1992 almost a year ago and use it as a daily driver. It met the criteria: convertable, FUN to drive, economical and reliable. Oh and it was easy on the wallet since my teenage son had just blown the engine in my Saab 9.5 Aero!

Since it is stock except for a few minor adds that came with it:
* chrome sport bar (eventually to be swapped for a real roll ball),
* 17" Konig Verdicts (nice looking but anchors for sure and For Sale! 6ULs
are on my wish list),
* front shock tower brace
I decided to just drive it and enjoy it. Which I have done - it had 98,000 miles on it when I got it just after Thanksgiving last year as of today it has 129,000+!

Been stalking various miata forums, joined Chesapeake Area Roadsters and just having fun with the car but now it's time to make it mine...

Are you close to Rising Sun? I could give you hand with the turbo build if needed and wouldn't mind the opportunity to pick your brain about it. Although adding a turbo is a bit "down the road" it is on the list!

Drag strip is about 10 minutes from home! Friday nights Spring through Fall you never know what you'll see at the track - "run what ya' brung" - everything from full out drag cars to muscle cars to imports to big diesel pickups throwing down some serious power!

Not close, I'm in Pasadena. One of our customers is up there though. I'm about done with the build. Drove it a few miles and decided to go with a bigger Turbo and swap over to vbands so I'm tearing it all apart again. After reading about turbos and down pipes falling off under heavy track use I decided to re- think what I was doing.

I do but I don't stop there...if I go that far up then I'm getting a cheese steak.
