Default New guy from Florida

Hey guys names Austin and owned a miata since two years ago, I've been "active" around miata.net and CR.net for about a year and always ran across here every now and then but here I am now, a member! Planned on taking my stock 1.8 96 miata to the turbo direction and already have a turbo sitting on the side to be put together so super excited! It's nice to be here so hi!

Welcome to the forum. What do you plan to do with the car, street, track, both? And post some pics so the guys will know if they should be mean or not, lol.

Yeah... I've seen some of these threads... Oh well hahah. Well I'll post pictures up later but for right now what I have sitting on the side is a T3/T4 Godspeed Turbo, Flyin Miata Turbo manifold, 500cc Supra injectors, and the 255 LPH Walbro Fuel Pump. Still piecing it together so yeah it'll be awhile

Sounds like a good mani, turbo, and injector combo. Unless your stock fuel pump is bad, you won't need the Walbro. Stock pump flows more than those injectors need if it is good. Put that money towards a Megasquirt, if you can.

What part of Florida, btw? Put it in your profile so it shows under your screen name. We probably have members local to you here.

I live in the northern part in a small city called fort walton beach but you guys may be more knowing of Destin and Panama City which are really close and Pensacola. Ill fix it soon, I got all that as part of a package sale along side some 1mm+ oversized valves (which I'm probably not going to use for either a long time or never). Thanks by the way!

Also Im saving up for the MSPNP Gen 2 but it's going to be awhile before I get my hands on one.

And right now it's only street, where I live there are no tracks but I wish I could track the car.

I know exactly where that is. I ran cross county at UWF with several guys from Fort Walton and Niceville. There's actually a guy on the forum in Navarre that's putting the finishing touches on an impressive build: https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...il-come-52559/

I like it. But I'm also a ***** for cars with stripes so...

Sounds like you have a rather solid plan for your boosting endeavors. +1 to using the stock fuel pump for now and getting a MS. It's the best investment you can make towards any sort of performance gains on a Miata.

Thanks! First person to tell me they actually like the stripes, everyone hates em but hey that's how I bought the car and I'm back and forth with em so they'll be there for now the megasquirt will come eventually I hope

Herro, herro. Welcome. There's another turbo Miata floating around these parts as well. It's in the for sale section on here... But its basically been sold, to a different local guy.
