Default new guy

Hey Miata turbo been lurking for a while. had a miata and sold it missed it so a went a got another

My Miata is Black 92 with tan interior bone stock. need some body work hail the car though paid A Whole $300 for it

Well anyways will lurk some more before posting too much. plan to v8 the car later in life but for now just clean it up all the body work and fix the rust on the rocker panels and drive it and maybe some suspension.

Either way I like the site and will be sticking around. let me know what you guys think of my little project.

Welcome aboard.

I hate it when someone makes the effort to introduce themselves and nobody answers.

BTW, nice find!

yea i figured couldnt Pass it up love the car needs some things tho.

Figure i will do a decent suspension just for street for now. Clean the body up and piece Together either a turbo set up. Or go with the v8 I Have done an ls1 240sx and it was Nasty just always thought a miata would be better.

I already have the motor just sitting in garage Not originally Planned for it. But who knows Might stay Bone stock and just restore it.

But either way Ill be hanging around this site.

If I could go back I would have dropped a lot more parts and money into my suspension.

I was in a real hurry to turbo...and cheaped out. Extra power from the boost is awesome, but in a Miata you will surely get more smiles from the suspension. Sorting that out may also help you figure out your power goals, and whether you can get there with a turbo or need a V8.

I really like the car, and you got a better deal than I got on my Black&Tan(no more tan top, and missing BBSs like yours). It's nice to know what blacked out daisies will look like on a black car.
