Default Lurker finally worthy(maybe?)

Hi,
My name is Tony and I am from Calgary, Alberta.

So I just recently had a life changing event and I finally feel like I *might* be worthy of posting something here. But I will get to that later.

So I bought my red Miata from my wife's aunt (readld) in 2010 with 75k KM on it and completely stock.


Miata at the beach

Since then, I put on some C1M's, FM V-Maxx Coil-overs and FM sways, and installed a DIYPNP built by myself following the instructions in a thread by Braineack. Tuning with Tunerstudio so far has been good, but I still have some kinks to work out (idle mostly).

Planning to install a turbo on the car. Been reading lots for years now, and am just doing it bit by bit, as it is more of a long term tinkering project than anything else.

I am planning to build a garage over the summer at our new house, so hopefully next winter I will have a nice place to tool on the Miata and make some progress.

So, for the life changing event:

KITTIES

Castiel and Bobby

The Kittens

Wife and I just bought a house so we can finally have some kittens! We got two brothers out of a litter, and they are two rambunctious bastards.
I hope to be posting more often here, but mostly will be reading everything that comes up. I especially am intrigued by the politics and current events threads, being Canadian, there are some interesting perspectives for sure!

Anyways, plans for the car include but not limited to,
Torsen
EV14 injectors
COPS with sequential fuel/spark
Hardtop
and of course
TURBO with all the fixin's (well maybe just a basic setup)
FM/BEGI cast mani+downpipe, gt2560, DIY IC piping, ebay IC, etc etc.

Thanks for all the great threads,
Tony

Great looking car. What year is it? Repaint?

What kind of camera do you shoot with?

Thanks guys. The car is a 95. No repaint as far as I know, it was kept in an underground parking garage, and driven sparsely. The paint is in pretty good condition, other than the front bumper where the license plate mount was.

I have a 5D classic and a 7D(wifes but I am allowed to use it when I can pry it away). I also have a decent collection of lenses, but always wanting to expand!

Welcome.
Great intro thread. Sounds like you're well on your way to a nice boosted miata. So far you've done everything exactly right.
