Welcome and hello. You should start by putting your location in your signature.
There are a few others on this forum that are not too far from Ft. Myers.

There is an Autocross event I'd like to invite you to up in the Tampa area on Jan 31.
I'd like to see another Miata out there. Would you like details?

its not that it sucks, it was on the car when i bought it and its a decent set up i guess. it just only makes 6lbs of boost and i want to go a little bit past that. I know more about turbocharging than i do about supercharging and i know people who have had issues with vortechs at constantly high rpm's so I'm not sure if i trust it. Its still a fun little car and a very reliable set up. sixshooter-I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it up there but pm me details and I may come. There is an autocross in the ft.myers area on the 3rd and 4th if anybody is nearby. you can find details at gulfcoastautocrossers.com
