Default N()()b in Huntington Beach, SoCal

Hello!

I recently picked up a '91 with aspirations for -you guessed it- forced induction. With the exception of a Hard Dog roll bar and exhaust the car is completely stock. It's my DD right now, but tracking has always been the end goal.

At some point I would like to be running all the proper parts (stand alone, etc), but for now I'm looking for a smog legal kit (a la Greddy) just to get my feet wet. I've got a lot of years working on cars, but I don't have access to any fabricating tools.

I've always been a DSM guy (3 first gen Lancers/Dodge Colts), and am new to Miatas, so feel free to give me a ration of ****!

Due to the absence of either a FY 2014 appropriation or Continuing Resolution for the Department of **** Rationing (DSR), DSR and the rest of the federal government is authorized to shutdown operations. As indicated in the previous correspondence (the letter that was sent to all grantees is attached), your grant program is funded by appropriations that are currently affected
by the government shutdown.

Please continue to check DSR’s website (www.dsr.gov) for additional updates as to when **** Rationing will resume.

I agree with these guys. Having just learned to tune my bone-stock '99 with an MS3, there is NO way I would learn to do it while boosting. It's frightening enough N/A. Start with the standalone, boost after you learn to tune. Also IDK how it's done in the DSM world but when I say tune I actually mean tune, not just downloading maps.
