Default Recent Honda convert saying Hello

Hey All.
Honda guy here from CT. Bought my 91 miata a year and a half ago. It came with a style bar, painted calipers, and a subwoofer from the PO and I have been slowly cleaning it up and doing mostly maintenance upgrades. A little strapped on cash currently. Ultimate plans include a turbo, probably over this winter. Not sure about which engine I will go with (B6, BP, Rotary?? ). Here are a couple photos of where I've been and my current setup:

Had a turbo D series in my civic, started with a D15:

I think I redid the IC piping after this was taken. I built a vitara piston D16y7 which I had until I pulled it

Swapped in a B16:

Had a real clean 85 MR2

And now my miata, no good pictures yet, sorry:

I hope to have a build thread up this Fall after I amass some parts. Happy to be here

Cool EG. My freind has a super clean black top 20v 86 mr2 right now. Good luck with the miata. As for the rotary, if ever mentioned seriously, be prepared to have an e-foot up your ***.

....Unless you actually bring some work/knowledge to the table about the swap. Its just that every 2 months or so someone comes in and goes on about how great it will be and how blah blah blah, and nothing comes of it. If you actually do it with lots of pics, that would be sweet.
