Default hi

just posting this so I can get my 10 posts. While I'm at it I'll ask in case someone reads this. I need a stock fuel injector for a 1.8l

At this rate you won't last ten posts.

Read the sticky at the top of this section and begin again.

Good luck.

My name is Travis and I am 18 years old. I have a 95 miata. I am building it to be an autocross/track day car. I am just finished rebuilding the engine and I cracked an injector. I am in a big hurry to come up with an injector and someone from miata.net told me to ask around this website. My miata has no forced induction; I would love to supercharge or turbo it but I don't have the money seeing as I am going off to college. I live in Richmond, VA. and I am attending Virginia Military Institute.

Ashland Auto (I think that is the name of the place but it is next door to extreme suzuki of ashland) has two totaled 1.8 miatas (they're both auto's though) that you could swipe an injector or two from.

any pics are better than no pics. you could start a build thread in the "general miata" section

Well, how's life as a cadet? Made it through your first year, or has that just begun?

Well then best of luck Travis. I understand your Rat year is going to be interesting, but of course by now you've heard all of the stories.

I'm still halfway dreading the start of my class out here in Cali, so I'm kinda almost right there with you. Welcome to miataturbo, I'm sure by now you've read that spamming your way to 10 posts is a guaranteed date with The Banninator.

Unless you join some weird *** frat house you're not in for quite the same kind of treatment Hwy1strat is looking at over the next few months. He's going to a military academy and that's quite a bit different from a civilian school; quite a bit!

Erm, I should know, because I'm not in a civilian school either:

Very cool, Kotomile. Yeah, you're in a different environment also, but I still think Hwy1strat is going to get **** on a lot harder at VMI. I could be wrong but I guess we'll see soon enough. Good on the both of you taking a way different path than most.

I'm dreading it more from an academic perspective. I have to learn Arabic to a 2+/2+/2 proficiency in 63 weeks. Most English speakers I know don't function at a 2+/2+/2 proficiency...

Sorry for the OT hwy1strat, good luck in class!
