Default the new n00b round here

hello everyone from miata turbo! im dave from the suburbs of philadelphia. i recently purchased purchased my new automobile miata thing a few weeks ago and already have got the boost bug so i figured this would be a good place to join for information and to share my build with everyone. my platform is a 99 bone stock right now (with the acceptation of wheels it came with). not planning anything crazy just want a fun and reliable (somewhat atleast) car. my starting point will be the begi starter kit (garrrett version), chinacooler , and megasquirt ecu. will be sourcing other parts such as injectors and clutch after more research.

shot in the dark but before i pull the trigger on anything i was curious if anyone from the outer philadelphia area (bucks/montgomery county) is on here and would be willing to take me on a test drive in their boosted miata just so i can get a feel of what to expect
