Default NewB Here

Hey people Newb here

@ 25 years of age this is my first forum. From Chicago,il ... its cold over here so my projects are slow in the "working on them" department. But still in the works.
I currently own a '94 Miata that I bought off eBay 2 years ago now. Its my first miata and its being a good car, the way I drive it. I also own a '87 Xr4ti (its some '80s german ford) Its actually my sixth xr4ti.

Current Projects:
-Fix my timing belt that broke on the Miata
-Getting more power out of the 1.8L in the miata.

Steps I'm doing:
-Money is Low these days so I'm adding a 'Bad-*** turbo set-up on a budget'. most of my stuff is coming from the Chicago junk yards, eBay, CL, and Stuff from inventory.

I wanna say I have about 60 percent of all the parts of my 'Bad-*** turbo set-up on a budget' project

PS, your car is not black. An eye exam may be in order.
