Default Long Time Lurker from Florida

Hey Guys,

I guess I should finally introduce myself. My names William and I drive a 97 Miata with ~104K miles on it. I bought it a little over two years ago mostly stock w/ 78k on it and have since done the basic mods (exhaust, wheels, coils, etc.) Ever since I bought the car I knew I'd want to boost it though and joined this forum to start researching.

I finally started my parts collection a few months ago and am hoping to have everything installed and running in the next few months. My set up consists of Begi Exhaust manifold with relief cuts, Begi Downpipe, Sr20 T25 Turbo, DIY eBay Intercooler piping, intercooler, and knock off Greddy BOV. Innovate MTX-L Wideband, Glowshift Boost gauge, Innovate Oil Pressure & Temp gauge, Braineack Built Megasquirt PNP, and Stainless Steel braided lines and sandwich plate from eBay. Original goal is a simple 7psi and ~180ish wheel until the stock clutch goes and then buy a FM Happy Meal Kit and crank up the boost to make about 220ish wheel.

I'm from the East Orlando, FL area and chances are if you've ever been to an Orlando Roadsters meet you've seen my car and/or met me. Pics of how the car sits today below.

I used to live very close to UCF. That shipping container looks exactly like the gymnastics studio parking lot we used to go tear up all the time...

That picture was at Boardwalk Bowl on East Colonial. There is/was a big weekly meet that used to happen there.

Thanks for the welcomes Brain & Greasemonkey.
