Default New guy in north texas

Hi guys, Ive liked the idea of having a miata for several years and finally had one fall in my lap. Ive got a 90 that i put a DIY turbo kit on this weekend. the car is stock save for lowering springs and the turbo kit. T3, cartech and a msd box with 5 psi pretty much sums up the kit. Weather here is crappy but will put some pics up soon, looking foward to comments on the car and a little advice on upgrading this setup but those questions will be in new threads. I have a pretty broad range on cars so i can be of assistance on alot of non miata tech, current toys include a 405 rwhp 99 Cobra drag car, all motor 4.6, and a 92 Lexus SC400 that is gonna get a 5 speed swap and an eaton m90.

Yeah, they came with the used turbo setup. I had to have it running again quickly. Hopefully I will have time to fix it tomorrow.

Im trying to go easy on it. What sucks about that is Im a drag racer at heart and it is taking all my self control to not to put drag radials on it and take it to the track. I like the spoiler and have no plans to change it. Other than putting on the turbo kit it is how I got it. Im planning to repaint it red, and give the wheels a fresh coat of paint.
