Talking Newb in va!

Hey guy!

I have had my 94 mx5 for about 6 months now.
It is black, 5 speed and low. Other than that nothing.
So I figured I'd join a miata forum, and get to learning.
So howdy, I'm Jawsh.

I am looking into boosting the Mazda.
So I think I'll be looking for a kit soon.
Or just start buying the parts I need.


Here are some pictures.

I heard the best way to turbo a miata is redoing the suspension so it actually works.

Nah, you just stretch your tires really wide, and that helps build boost.

Les than 12 hours as a member and already getting trolled.
That's epic haha.

No one said you guys had to like it.
Wheels and suspension because it's a daily I has Subaru.
Now I wana turbo it for Autox.

So why cant I be low and boosted?
Already have some parts for my turbo.
Exhaust manifold and a td04h I figure that would put me at 225.
Well along with supporting mods.

Can some one gimme some more info on this megasquirt?
Is it basically like a Cobb accessoort?

You can be low and boosted. No problem with that.

But don't expect us to hold back.

Hell, when I first got here, I was still getting ready to pay someone to put a FFS supercharger on. They flamed me, we laughed, I learned, and everyone moves on.

Don't take it seriously.

Lol no one said anything about keepin the wheels and coils on it for Autox so flame all you want this isn't my 1st car form :derp: and I have taken it I drift water, I hope you know what that is , and it flew around the track exactly as is sits now. I drive it daily like this in va beach and if you have even been down here the roads are **** yet outa the 4 months that I have had te wheels and tires on (sold my stock wheels) nothing has happened even with it at a track.

I never said it would end well.

OP, before you think about talking back about how much you know about cars, read this (all the way through, I know it is long), and then understand that most people here know much more about the Miata than you do. The consequences of not listening to them are expensive.

I would suggest you leave wheels and coils on the car to autox I dont think bare rotors have much traction, and the frame rails scraping the ground might make it harder for them.

I will give him this, at least.

An entire portion of this forum dedicated only to the megasquirt.

MEGAsquirt - Miata Turbo Forum - Home to the Turbo Miata

Try actually looking around a bit before asking stupid questions next time. This is your 1 pass.

I just have a 04 wrx.
I think 225 on the 1.8 is good for a 1st turbo build.
My buddy 13bTurbo swaped his 99 and made about 250 on a mild tune.
I have drivin that around and thought it felt nice. No need for ls1 swap.....yet

most people do it when they want to spend $20K and get 300hp.

others turn up the boost and get the same...


Levnubhin is on base down there, and is running a MS2 i built for him, if you want to see first hand how the MS works.

Oh stop it you're making me blush

OP,
Protip: shut the **** up, don't respond to people poking fun of your gay ride height and the fact that you are a weekend drifter (ie: closet homosexual), and READ!! All the info to properly boost your car is here, and this forum is one of the best for turbocharging a miata.

And if you ask again if megasquirt is like the cobb crapcessport I'll teabag you.
