Default New to miatas, not to turbos

Hey everybody, my name is Justin. I'm from east Texas. I just picked up a 93 miata
No idea what the mileage is, because the previous owner installed a jdm gauge cluster (which I want to get rid of). So far I've really enjoyed the car. Its very fun to drive.
For the past two years I've been into dsm's. I found my 1g eclipse gsx in a field and built it from the ground up. So I've been messing with turbo setups for awhile. The main reason I bought the miata is so I continue going to drift events. I've been driving my buddy's 240 every time we go. I also plan on doing road course and autocross.
My plans as far as performance for now is to put coilovers on, and a mild turbo setup using a T25 from an Sr20 on the stock 1.6l. Only looking to make somewhere around 180-200whp.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to learning more about miatas.

Yeah the cluster reads in kilometers and the oil pressure in kg/cm. I know its not an actual Japanese cluster, just didn't know what to call it.

Thanks for the welcomes. I will definitely be starting a build thread.
