Hello miataturbo.net ppl.
A Little about myself

My name is nathan and i'm 20 years old. I've had a miata for about 8 months now.

I'm coming from the cavalier/cobalt world. So i'm not a complete idiot on engines and how they work and what's needed to turbo. How ever i am an idiot on the miata lol

I plan on turbocharging the miata hopefully within a year or so. I'm a college student so money is short. A lot of saving.

I want to learn as much as possible on turbocharging before I take this step. Along the way i'll be gettin her up on maintenance and some basic bolt ons. If anyone has advice..THANX in advance. On to some pics. of her.

I haven't turboed any of them, but i've read a ton of information on it. I felt like turbocharging a cavalier or cobalt was a waste of money

The cobalts are definitely worth turbo'ing. So much potential on them.

You got it. Oh and welcome to the boards. I had a '96 Grand Am GT many years ago so I was into the Cavalier scene as well. I learned a lot but I'm so glad I moved on.
