Default Lurker denoobification

Hi all,
I've been lurking here for a while and figured its time I denoobified myself. I'm one of those lost souls who have gone the SC route for boosting my '99 sport. I have a MP62 coldside with the BRP ELF (Hey, it works!) and a Split Second FIC.
I had an '69 MGB before I got my Miata (Our family had 5 MGs). I have worked at a British car restoration shop while in college, which helped my mechanical and fabrication skills.

I have found many useful threads here and hope to contribute as well.
Anyways, greetings!

Welcome to the thunderdome.
Do yourself a favor and get rid of the ELF FIC garbage. That supercharger while you're at it.

Thanks for the welcome.

Yeah, I've been contemplating a fuel management change for a while now, but I haven't had the need to. So far, its been running great. Looks like my dyno tuning has paid off thus far.

Pics are on my cardomain page: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/810280

Don't tell these guys but; I like the FFS!

I read about your car once on m.net. Nice job!

If I were you, I'd dump the ELF asap!

Thanks for the comments. I've been wanting to upgrade the ELF, but its been problem free. I have tried other fueling solutions, but they didn't justify the cost. At least not yet.

I don't think I'll pull the blower though. Boost is just too good to go back to NA.
