Ok, so I have lurked and tried to post helpful stuff on this site, used the search button alot, bought from the classifieds, I guess its time to introduce myself.....

My name is Michael, I live in central washington. Im a diy'er.

Im currently on my 2nd miata, or is it my first because I have owned it twice?
Any ways, I had a 94 miata fm sways, falken azenis. Did a decent amount of autorcrossing over the years. Sold my miata shortly after because i need the money.

Bought my second miata 90 red, bad paint job, for $750. (Salvage title) I borrowed this car for 1yr before when my brother owned it. He sold it to my friend and my friend sold it back to me after 4 or so years.

I lucked out as the car already had ss brake lines, cross drilled rotors, tokico shocks, eibach springs, a style bar, fresh clutch, torsen, fm exhuast, a newer motor (55k i helped my friend install when he owned it), and came with a barely used set of blizzaks that i sold for $250. My friend was looking to get rid of this car bc he had just bought a 2010 Madzaspeed 3.

So about 6 months ago I took ownership of the car. I had wanted a turbo car for about 10 years and now was the time. So i started building my turbo kit. First I built a MS2 w/lc, fs and got a lc-1 wideband. After that was installed, I added a boost gauge, vtps and started collecting parts for the turbo. Wow i can't believe your reading all this, you must be either intrigued or too bored to do something else, kudos. I have most of the pieces for my turbo kit, and a month to get them installed by for auto x. 1 week ago i found out that i was leaking oil out of the head gasket.

So being the ---- person I am, I pulled the head off, and started port and polishing, and port matching the head. Pics to follow. Love this community. Thanks for the help and stickies, esp. Braineack and Joe.
I will be posting more guides on parts of my build when my mod schedule slows down. Until then anyone let me know if you have any questions on things that i have already done.

Wow. I gtg my legs are falling asleep from sitting on this toilet
