Default hows it goin?

my name is Andre, im from Sacramento, i was passing infineon a while back and saw a bunch of miatas heading down to the raceway. Ever since then always had interest. i just bought myself a project 1994 miata for $1000. cant really say much about it. i want to boost it and a friend of mine told me to check you guys out. i currently own an 02 m5 and an 07 gsxr. ive had a bunch of diffrent projects. sti, sti wagon, 2 evo's, cts-v but for some reason i have never been more stoked about a project.

heres some pics

+1.

Nice intro and welcome aboard.

You're a perfect candidate for a well done turbo Miata project. As budget just told you read all the stickies (particularly braineack's one).

welcome Andre. Remember our conversation over the phone the other day: use the search function a lot. This place is filled with people gearheads that will flame you to **** for asking stupid questions.
