Default Newb from South Jersey

Hi I am from South Jersey and I currently have a 91 Miata that needs to be fixed up but I am pretty sure I can do it. I am planning to boost it and someone recommended this website to me. I plan on running a 2560 but maybe if that is not the best option you guys can help me otherwise. I am just here for some pointers and advice. Thanks

Welcome. The 2560 is a great option. Start reading the FAQs and search.

Pics of your car would be good.

BTW, please post your location below your Avatar. We have some Jersey guys here who may be able to assist you in the future.

Copycat setup is more like it.

Paul - the Original


Hi Rafa. Yeah I've been busy with a new puppy and getting into my own business, plus the GF is always giving me **** for being on the computer too much. You know how it is.

Yeah, we gotta swap that motor soon.... and bigger turbo. Woot.

Nice to hear from you Paul.

Good to see you started your own business.

Welcome MszMiata. Whatever you do, don't check out miatamob.org.

2560 is a good choice, as is absurdflow.

I've got a heated garage if you want additional help. I'd also be interested in the smaller turbo.

Rafa, he's not staying on this site so it doesnt matter. He racked up 10 posts so that he could post in the for sale section. I think he was interested in someones M45.

Have tomorrow's lottery numbers too? Thanks for being so welcoming.

I plan on staying around, but yeah, I did post a few times so I could actually use this site. Why else would I post some of my other info?

It has "grown up", but compared to many of the areas in NJ, it is small, at least to me.
