Default Hey there

Jay here from north TX. I've been lurking for a while, finally getting around to introducing myself.
I'm on my third Miata, a stock red '91 base model with AC. The previous two were an Emerald Mica 2000LS and a 2001SE, but then I got back into Jeeps and motorcycles and spent a few years without one.
I'm not yet sure what I'll end up doing with this one. I'm leaning toward a smallish intercooled setup for something around 200whp, but I'm not in a big hurry about it- will probably wait until spring to get started with any major modifications- for now I'm just happy to have a top and 4 wheels again.
You guys have a great site here, tons of useful information for someone looking to start a turbo project.

I'm not _that_ kind of Miata owner
I'm actually up by Denton, but figured that more people would recognize DFW.

I live in Lewsville, have an office in Denton which I never see, and I plan on running at ECR when they do more open track ****.

Ah, very cool. I lived in Lewisville (near Corporate & 121) until about a year ago and work in Flower Mound so I'm still in the area all the time.
I've never been out to Eagles Canyon (I'm assuming that's the ECR you're talking about), but I hear it's a pretty good facility.

I've never run there either, but I plan on bringing the pain there shortly.

I've read through a bit of it, good work getting that stuff organized. I'm sure it'll be handy when I get around to putting together a Megasquirt.
