Default Rick from Ohio

Hello all.

My name is Rick, I live in northeast Ohio, about 30 miles east of Cleveland.

I'm here to do some research on adding a little pit of power to my Miata. I'm no stranger to boosted cars and have built quite a few in the past, mostly Turbododges. I'm not looking for much out of my Miata. a 30-40% bump in power would be sufficient. Its a 1992 1.6.

My other toys right now are my '05 GTO with an LS2 and a 6 speed which is currently down with transmission problems and a 2009 Honda Metropolitan scooter with a 150cc swap.








Me and the goat.


And a couple of my past projects...























Well, thats about it. Its good to be here!
