Default I'm new to the forum, but not new to miatas!

I've had my Miata for 11 years now. It started life as a 1992, but got rusty and then rear ended. So I picked up a 1994 tub. It was an r package tub but everything special was long gone. So I transferred everything from my 1992 to the 1994 body. Including the wiring harness. I've parted out several miatas (and I'm parting one currently) and took my pick of all the best suspension pieces, put new bushings in the control arms, and put it all back together. Then, I found a nice 1.8 and swapped it in. So I have a 1.8 with a 1.6 harness in a 1.8 body. All the parts on this car don't match, but I love it. Now, I came across a very cheap supercharger from an NB. I'll sell off the power card and intend to megasquirt the car. I know you guys are not so big on blowers but I'm sure you guys have plenty of info on engine management!

Also, my wife has a bone stock smurf blue 1990. That and a couple of jeeps. We like our cars!

Cool. There seem to be a few really fast Miatas up in your neck if the woods.

Yeah, there seems to be some quick ones around here. Lots of info. I think I can gain a lot more knowledge around here, even if I'm going with a dumb ol supercharger. It was 250 bucks, so I couldn't pass it up. I'll sell off the power card and probably recoup a portion of my cost.
