Default A new rookie from overseas

Hello everybody:

I'm a new rookie here, from the beautiful island of Majorca, Spain. I have a '01 1.8 silver Miata I bought new back in June of 2001.

I'm a commercial rated airplane pilot and licensed aircraft technician and work for a German airline as technician in B-737ng-classic / A320 / A330 fleets.

I'm 45, married and have a 4 years old son (who also loves our Miata)

As is common among the Miata community our miata is highly modified:

* M45 Jackson Racing Supercharger @ 8psi
* Powercard
* Custom FMIC, with the piping over radiator
* 150/62.5 Pulleys
* TDR tensioner
* EGR blanking plate.
* 6 puck ceramic Clutch
* Mazdaspeed engine mounts
* AutoMeter Boost & Narrow-Band AFR on A-Pillar
* Start big red button in the warning light place (warn Lt sw in lighter place)
* H&R lowering springs
* Bilstein Sprint Shock Absorbers
* OZ Superleggera 15x7 wheels
* Toyo R888 dot slicks 205/50-15
* IL Motorsport stainless mid pipe (after cat)
* Dual Tip Borla Sport
* Fuel Chrome Lid
* USB MP3 Audio Link with the original modular radio
* RedLine oil in Tranny & Diff
* Mobil 1 oil in engine since the first 1,000Km. (replaced every 3,000Km)
* Custom stainless roll bars (cosmetic)
* Chrome windshield frame add-on
* Beige Mohair Top
* Something else I don't remember right now.....

Next:

* T25 Chinacharger
* Turbosmart in cabin manual Boost Controller
* Turbosmart Dual port BOV
* AEM UEGO AFR Wide-Band
* 2.5" Custom exhaust
* Silicone radiator hoses
* Water Wetter + pure water
* Oil temp gauge
* Stainless Brake and Clutch Lines
* Hard Dog M2 Double Diagonal Sport bar
* Poly Bushes all around
* Oil cooler
* Aluminum Radiator
* Kayaba AGX

In the future better Engine internals and a bigger turbo along a standalone ECU

That's all, I hope to learn a lot here and have some fun

All the best,
Ben.

Welcome to the boards supercharger brethren. I'm thinking about trying out a turbo down the road as well in case the supercharger doesn't work out on the track.
