Default Jacksonville Fl noob looking for a local boosted owner in the area for encouragement

Facts:

-purchased a 1990 miata in 2010 and since then have done nothing with it besides purchasing a BEGI turbo system I've yet to install. Does it get any n00ber than this?

Help:

-need to feel the rush of what I'd be missing if i decide to sell the car and turbo system separately. WHERE ARE THE JACKSONVILLE, FL MIATA OWNERS?

there used to be a couple of JAX hoes on this site but I think most of them have parted their cars out.

honestly, i haven't thought that far... im one of those people who think about the beginning and end product, without consideration for all the "fun" in the middle. -true newbie

my goal right now was to drive a miata turbo before I ultimately decide on selling this kit and car. Incentive to not installing before selling- $

Once you drive it turbo you wont want to sell it.

Do some research on here and youll learn a lot. Id suggest getting it setup and running on megasquirt and bigger injectors before throwing the turbo on there.
My buddy and I have a little megasquirt experience and have been looking for some cars running MS to work on, so if you go that route well probably offer to give you a hand in exchange for the experience.

I bring mine back down to Jax from time to time. My parents live off of Monument road.

Too bad you didn't say anything between June 2010 - June 2011. My brother in law was watching my car the whole time I was deployed and would have gladly taken you for a spin.
