Looks good! I was working on mine a good chunk of today. Part of me really wishes I would have just gone with a prefab kit.

I guess I'll post since Kevin sent the link over to me.

I'm Alex, I have a 95 that looks like a turd(green) with a black hardtop, ricer trunk, goofy wheels. You'll know it's me when you see it. Trust me!

Alex

Welcome to the forum, guys. Does the turbo kit make you smile yet?

Man. FM makes a clean kit.

Next thing you need is some real engine management!

Hey thanks! I will say that my Miata was very fun to drive before I added the FM goodies, however, the sound of the turbo spooling up and the feeling of the added power makes this car soo much more enjoyable.

Flyin' Miata does a great job with their kits, I'm happy I spent the extra money and went with them. I agree, I do need a stand alone ECU, I'm hoping to make that a winter project for this year.

I will be in Eureka Springs, AR for a Miata event that weekend, otherwise I'd be all over it.

I will not be in attendance. I have the unfortunate privilege of attending a wedding for my wife's nephew in wonderful Branson, MO. They are both from Lincoln, but they thought it would be "neat" to have it down there so I guess i have to

Damn this makes me want to get my kit done and installed on my car. Laguna Blue is such a beautiful color.

Mike, Id love to see your finished car sometime, and compair it to my custom setup. right now im about 80% done, but its just small things to finish up with.
Also I hate to be "that guy" but would you like to sell your drill bit and tap you used for your oil pan?

I will probably be working on my car the majority of this week during the day time. if your free, let me know and we may be able to meet up.

hey buddy, sorry for the late response, hopefully your car is coming along alright. If you still need the drill bit to tap your pan I'll let you use mine. Let me know what works for you and maybe we can meet up this weekend.
