Default Novice from Ohio

A little bit about myself:

I'm a Mechanical Engineering student at OSU, planning on Automotive concentration when I get to that point.

I have a red 1995 with 118k miles, the only thing I've done so far has been Megan Street coilovers. I will search and read before I ask any stupid questions, I promise. I am also a feline enthusiast.

I plan on getting a roll bar this winter, and hopefully I will be piecing together a turbo setup for this summer or the next.

I'm here to learn, and from how much I've already read I know this site will be very helpful and I don't plan on contributing to it negatively.

This is before it was lowered at all

Hello!
+1 for Ohio. There are a handful of us on here.

If you havent stumbled upon it yet, check out Ohio Miata Owners on facebook.
There is also the Buckeye Miata Club, with which I host 6-7 semi private autocrosses each year. Our final event of this season is actually this sunday, the 13th, at Circleville Raceway Park. you should come out and run! Its a pretty cool group of people. We usually have 1 or 2 turbo na's in addition to the couple mazdaspeeds that come out.

Already in OMO, I've seen you post in there before, you're the one with 21 flavors right?

I've done one auto cross an I cannot wait to do more. Once I get some decent tires next season I will hopefully go to a lot more

Well after spending the previous 2 days constantly reading here and other sites, I feel I am capable of piecing together and installing a turbo setup that will work with P/S and A/C and give me a somewhat reliable ~200-225 whp so I can daily it.

The first step in this process will be acquiring a Megasquirt and wideband and getting them set up for n/a while I piece together everything else needed. Planning to purchase the MS the first chance I get, and the rest will come as money flows in and parts pop up in the classifieds here.

Hopefully everything goes smoothly, now I just have to get a few more posts so I can PM when parts come up for sale

Well I guess I'll just have to keep it in Pickerington


This winter I plan on ordering a MSPNP from Rev or Brain, hopefully that works out.
