Default New guy, don't beat me off too bad....

The name is Dan.
New to the forums, not new to the Miata Lyfe (all i've owned were garbage dumps of Miata's in the past that weren't really worth anything outside of the realm of scrap parts)
I have a soul red 2016 Miata GT with a manual transmission, currently residing at 11,400 miles. Getting ready to start bumping up the power because why not.
I've locked in on the BBR GTi Stage 1 turbo kit, as well as their camshaft kit. Will be saving up for the parts during this Summer and slowly purchasing them, hopefully to have them on the car and getting prepped for a tune by this Fall.
Here's my slowmobile

I also have a 91 NA that won't break no matter how much I make fun of it. It's even slower.

Did not know you had a smurf.

Have you been through our Miata.net-like Debauchery thread?

And then consider returning the turbo kit.

Im getting dah spookies. Man sounds almost as scary of an idea of turbo'ing my BRZ when I had it. Everything is glass fragile, sucks.

Welcome to the Forum, it would be great to read a review of the driving experience between the NA and ND!

Dat drama. I have no control over OSCC lol, if you guys got banned wasn't my doing or my partaking in. All I ever did was post events for a short amount of time because OSCC was dying then got scolded once I brought the group back to life.<br />​​​also, gg at don't beat me off thread name change
