Default n00b from eastern florida

Hola! My name is Nick and I'm new to the forced induction side. I'm over in the east side of Florida. My Miata is a 96 with a stock 1.8, but I'm dropping a fully built motor in along with a MS1 and s4 kit. Looking forward to meeting everyone here and hopefully meeting up with others in my area!

Welcome Nick,

Lots of Florida people on the site. You may consider putting your City and State in your location.

Really good info on this site. The longer you stay, the more you will learn.

I live near Tampa by the way.

Raise your car and fix the wheels.

I have the ksport air struts installed. 2 switches raise the car, fix the wheels, and provide a stiff suspension all at the same time

I do need wider tires though. 205/40 on 9j won't be good for traction nor safety when I throw the new motor in.

very very nice miata... but, yes, the wheels are crooked... and tires are expensive to replace from misalignment damage... lol

do you have the new motor to build yet???

Thank you! and the wheels only become cambered in when I let all of the air out of the struts. When I air them back up it fixes the camber.

I'm not building the motor, my buddy is dropping an LS into his miata which currently has the fully built motor and s4 kit. Once he pulls the miata motor we are dropping it in mine.
