Default n00b from Orlando

Hey everyone,

Fairly new to the Miata scene and wanted to introduce myself. This is my first Miata, I have been looking for one for a few years (big thanks to Pdexta for getting me hooked after driving his 10AE) and finally got serious about buying one. I picked up my 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata about a month ago and she has been great! She handles great and is so forgiving in the corners (I had an S2000 AP2 and can honestly say the MSM is more fun and easier to drive right on the edge). She has a decent amount of power for how little she weighs, enough to kick the back end out on stock tires. Of course I had the mod bug since day one. My girlfriend was nice enough to buy the Flyin Miata Big Enchilada kit as a gift for us. I have been slowly working on the install, the exhaust, downpipe, intake, intercooler and boost controller are in. Just waiting for a nice weekend off to do the injectors and ECU and hopefully she will be right where I’d like her. Also going to be purchasing some Coils and a Roll Bar soon. In the future I’ll be looking to upgrade to a bigger turbo and stronger internals. She isn’t my daily, I also have a 2014 328i and a 2013 135is, both of which are stock of course . We both enjoy going on drives and would love to meet some fellow Miata owners in the central Florida area. I also travel to SWFL often and sometimes take the MSM down.

Anyways, enough rambling! I attached some pics of my MSM & 135is.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. What are your plans for the car? Track days?

Pdexta is good people and there are a few more here in the area. I'm right off i4 near Plant City if you want to get a beer at the Brew Hub sometime with the other guys.

Sounds great, I just got back from a cruise so sorry for the delay! Let me know whenever you guys go, Ill make the drive over.

As for the car, she will be a great weekend car for now, with track days in the future. (Looking at buying a house soon and the girlfriend says that limits my toy budget for now) lol
