Default New from Chicago area

Heyyy what's up guys! Rob here - 22 year old from the Chicago land area and I haven't been active on any Miata forums somehow (Which is weird for me) but just started picking up some goodies to begin the boost process with this and figured I'd join up on here for part sourcing and to meet some new people!

Few pics of the ride for your pleasure...



And some of the things I just picked up...
Volvo td04hl-15g turbo and evo intercooler - on the hunt for a 1.6 manifold


I've previously boosted a Tiburon (yes, a tiburon lmao) so familiar with the boost world and looking to do put this build together for drifting.

I'll be lurkin' around,
-Rob

Welcome. Where in Chicago are you? I've not seen your car around.

Thanks Sixshootah! I'm planning to run a conservative boost setup to keep the rear end spinning around the corners. Outside of the boost, revamping my suspension this winter to get ready for next season.

Thanks! I'm in the NW burbs, around the Algonquin area, drive to the city every now and then for work and stuff, but my aero kit doesn't like the roads downtown all that much so I try to avoid it.. hah
