Default hey, nooby from norfolk va

hey my name is justin. i bought my 90 miata 4 years ago not knowing what i was getting into. i started my build when i found out that my car had a bad short nose crank. my friend dave at ddm works took me under his wing and helped me get started. ive been slowly building it since. now im here trying to take in the wealth of knowledge. thanks to all for your post they have been very helpful.

There are alot of VA guys on here, I'm sure one of them wouldn't mind giving you a ride. I think 220 whp in a miata is ideal and can be done without breaking the bank. 300whp it starts to get expensive, but it looks like you already have the drivetrain to handle it.

Welcome.

yes 220 is nice. i got a ride from john finger in his na miata a few years ago befor it got totaled. he did a run to 80 and it got there in no time. it was a very nice setup. but since my motor is a bit high milage ima build it with better internals maybe do a 2.0 build so im going to expect more out of it.
