Allow me he plans to run a MS from braineack, he wants mid to low 200's in the hp range. He just got some 15*7 TR wheels. There will be another egay megan racing turbo setup up and running in KY. But he seems to have the silly notion that we will run an intercooler, go figure. I am still hoping to sneack a WI system onto there when he isnt paying attention :P

i've only been on here for a couple of days and im already a *****.... I'm a low maintenance kinda guy so i prefer not to have more on the car to fill up than i have to. so no WI or NOS. just wanna have a fun little ride. havent turned n e wrenches in a while and finally broke the V8 chain, just wanted a cheap project... no such thing, right? still the miata is a blast stock, so i cant wait to start building power.

Youre not a *****.......yet. Magna is.

WI = insurance

NOS = Faggetry

I wouldnt be surprise if you end up jumping in the WI wagon later down the road.

Yes, and probably a transmission eventually Since we all know you will eventually need MOAR BOOST. Welcome... *****.
