Default Newb from Alabama... researching possible forced induction.

Hey all. I've had my Miata since Dec. 31 2008, bought it with 152,000 miles on it (now at about 210,000miles). I enjoyed just squirting around in it for a few years, and am currently working on a suspension package for it. Once that's done, I'll probably be supercharging it for that little bit more oomph. I've got a 2005 Ducati Monster that got me used to being able to point and shoot wherever I want to go, and I'd like to have that feeling in the Miata.

I'll be poking around picking your brains and whatnot.

Nice place you've got here.

Do some searching around. I think there are a few folks here that go with a turbo. Its the right thing to do.

The more I read, the more I move from super to turbocharging.

The more you look, the more you will see that supercharging a miata offer zero benefits over a turbocharger
