Default Minnesota Noob here. FWD flamesuit on.

Hi all!

I have decided that my next car will be a Miata. I currently own 2 saabs, and an Acura TL.

The DD 1999 9-3 has 350whp/390 pound feet courtesy of a GT30. Here is what it looks like: (sleeper anyone?)

Here is the 1986 900 "toy"



The TL is blue, and stock. It's also reliable, and that's neat.

I think the miata obession I have is a bit of an over-reaction because of the 3 reasonably high powered FWD cars I currently own. Either way...

Anyway, I have a year or so left to pay off my 9-3, then it's going back to stock, and getting sold for a pittance. Then I will hopefully be buying a Miata.

The fun bits I plan to take off the 9-3, and plan to stick on the Miata is the GT30 (maybe will trade for a gt28 or something, still reading about that), the 660CC injectors, and I think I can get the custom FMIC I have to work on there too.


Anyway, I know a bit about turbos and whatnot, but I hope to learn about putting them in a Miata.


See you guys around!
