Talking MountainMichael - S. Colo

Hi, all.

I'm a relative n00b to Miata's and to turbocharging. Long time car guy, though.

I'm a recent newcomer over in miata dot net. I've sure been enjoying that forum and the excellent people there.

After some indecision between an FM SC and the BEGi turbo kit, I've decided my 2006 NC will be getting the latter - possibly self installed; I've got a nice new garage to try out!

My car is a 2006 Touring w/5 spd MT. I'm a 51 y/o early retired guy living in the mountains of S. Colo. I have a fairly heavy mech background, so I hope to fit in here and perhaps eventually contribute some thoughts in the technical forums.

Kind regards,

MMike

Interesting. Not many NC's on the board, your motors spin the wrong way.

Welcome
