Hey everybody,

I've been lurking on this forum as a guest for the better part of a year, and in the Miata community in general since 2012. I first got into Miata's when I bought a 1.6l Spec Miata back in 2012. Fast forward to 2014 and I replaced my 1.6 Spec Car with a built by me '99 Spec Miata (the 1.6 might have been totaled... long story). I've also been dailying a '99 Miata for a little over a year. Over the past 6 months or so I have been slowly collecting parts for a turbo build. The car is currenty sitting on Megan EZstreet coils, and light weight 15X6.5 wheel, hoping for 15X7 in the future. So far I have:

A complete used FM2 Gt2560 kit, no electrics
RX8 secondary Injectors
Walbro 190lhp fuel pump
Manely Forged Connecting Rods
Ceramic coated OE pistons
APR head studs
High temp valve seals
An appropriate clutch and PP
And I just ordered an Enhanced MS2 from Reverant

Anything else you guys want to know or would like to input is welcome!

So here's a new newb saying Hi.

And I know everybody loves pictures so I will try to get some uploaded later!
