Default Hi from Michi-gan

I've been observing and occsionally posting here for awhile and thought that it was about time to intro myself.
My name is John and I live in Southwestern Michigan. I presently own a 1999 Silver Miata that I purchased just over three years ago. The car was driven year-round for the first couple of winters cause I couldn't afford a second car for getting to work. Actually I had forgotten how much fun a rear-wheel drive car is in the snow and really had a blast with the car. This past winter I picked up a really clean hi-mile Protege` and was able to garage the Miata.
I plan to turbo the Miata eventually, so now I am adding small improvements here and there to support the eventual power increase.
I have had a Turbo MAZDA before in the form of a 1988 323 GTX. This was the car that MAZDA got the engine from originally for the Miata and why the Miata engine is built so well. I had the GTX boosted to 20psi and really had fun showing it's backside to many a Mustang, Corvette, etc.
Anyway, I really enjoy the forum and hope to learn much more from everyone here.

Welcome aboard John.

By your post I can infer you don't need any hand holding

Since you already owned a 323, I would suggest you work on rerouting the coolant in your Miata.

Some pics of your car would be nice.

Rafa,
I'll work on those pics. I have been following a couple of reroute links on the forums. One using a sandwich adaptor from BEGI and the other using a new housing and remote thermostat from M-Tuned. I'll probably go with the M-Tuned but I am waiting for the two to get completed before making the final decision.
Thanks
