Default loudon virginia

hey ive been lurking on here for a while, mostly looking for diy turbo build parts and different opinions. i've learned a lot just from creepin and readin. im located in loudon & currently own '93 1.6 white na. stock w/ racelands (for now) on 15x7 grey tr c1m..


my goal is to build my car to make decent, reliable power. im thinking around 160-170 hp. im still nearly at the beginning of my project, meaning i still need to service coolant system, timing and pulleys, new head gasket..


anyway... just saying ello

There is no one in Chantilly that knows anything about turbocharging a 1.6.

Welcome.

I like how a few years after I leave NoVA there is an influx of miata people to NoVA.

I have a big box of pipes and tubing. You should come buy it all for about 20% of its value.

And then buy my big box of random vacuum line parts and couplers.

And maybe I have other things.

Basically random assortment of bends of varying angles in either aluminum, mild steel, or stainless and diameters ranging from 2" to 4". Not very many of any specific size, just none I plan to use.

Couplers are roughly of the same description. A few colors and sizes, some right angles, reducers, etc.

I probably even have a filter that fits something useful.
