Default It's my [F]irst time....please be gentle :P

Yay for gw reference?

My name is Gerald and purchased my Sunburst Yellow Miata about two years ago with 83k miles on it. Some lame info about myself: 27 years old, Engineer, addicted to caffeine, and I hate my HOA. This is my first miata and the world of RWD, I previously owned a WRX with a rotated setup that I tuned myself with RomRaider.This is my first attempt to turbo a car that didn't come turbo'd stock.

Here is a picture of my girly car:

I haven't actually design anything worth wild in a while. My main focus at my job is materials and destructive testing. But it's a small company that deals with aerospace.

My turbo plans actually don't follow the popular trend around here (Stock 1.6 motor) :P

Things I recently bought for the turbo:
MSPNP1
DW200
eBay intercooler

Things I currently have:
GT2560R
Custom log manifold I bought off here
My old modified wrx injectors
bunch of fittings for oil feed/drain, coolant
5 bolt flange for dp

Things I need to purchase:
Exhaust piping
Resonator
Intercooler piping
Injector spacers (i'll probably make my own)

I think that's all? Not really aiming for big power.

Current mods on the car:
Bilstein HD
GC Springs 550lb/350lb
FCM bumpstops, and top hats
Interior mods are the basic bucket seat,a nardi 330 steering wheel, and roll bar.

Gerald is a pretty manly name for a woman.
