Default Hi from central california

Hey,
My name is Taylor, I've been bumming around the forum for a while figured i'd finally register and contribute something. I have a red '94, it has the basic track mods...brake lines, stage 2 act, 8.5lb flywheel, wheels tires, and a roll bar. I enjoy it but feel like I could use some boost. I am a full time mechanic at a local auto shop, I work mostly on German cars, and have recently come into possession of a K04 out of an Audi tt HO. I know a fair amount about the modern vehicle and would like to try my hand at tuning. Thanks in advance for all the help.

--taylor

Cool. I'm in Monterey and Qckslvr is in Salinas. I worked the Miatas @ MRLS, but I won't be here past December so I won't be at the next one. You'll want to be there though, next year is going to be even better.

More than you'd expect from a small town.

Always, my Miataturbo.net North American tour continues. Met some of the north Florida and Atlanta members, got to shoot the breeze with the Cali crew for a bit, and now I'm off to Texas for a few months and then on to North Carolina. I wonder how far Fayetteville is from the "Tail of the Dragon"?.. hmm.
