Default Someone called me a noob.

And said i should post an intro thread here, so here it is.

Name is Eugene and im currently in DFW, TX.

im 27, white, 5'6 135 brown hair blue eyes, do i need to post my socail/DL info too? :P

anyway, i've been into cars since i was 15 and since then i've had a huge variety of cars that i modded the hell out of.

just picked up an 03 silver 5spd car with some front end damage that i fixed and am debating turboing.

here are some pics of my 'noobness'

random 3-1 collector


3000gt header being built


some Titanium welds


3000gt sidemount intercoolers


3000gt 3" dual downpipes into 4" exhaust


more sidemounts


quickie 911 turbo exhaust


quickie exhaust on my bmw S1000rr

Welcome n00b.
Looks like you can weld/fabricate some cool ****.
Putting together a DIY miata turbo setup should be a piece of cake for you

What are your goals with the miata?
Quick motor refresh/build, some cool hotside and coldside fabrication, and you'll have 350whp car that weighs low 2000lbs. Fun as ****, even compared to a built vr4.

In for epic custom fabrication

Welcome, can't wait to see what you brew up for your NB.

I use the same name over there, I just don't post up because I don't own a Supra any longer. Still a big fan of them and will have another one in the future.

That was me. Thanks for the post N00b (to this forum at least). :P I like your S1000RR. I used to work at a Motorrad dealer and drove the ***** off our demo bike.

That's what I was thinking. When you figure out what works, make sure you build and sell some stuff for the miata community.

not touching the motor anytime soon, if i decide to turbo this one and not flip it for a profit (i got it for a steal imo) it will be a simple PTE billet/dbb 5557 vband in/out on E85 for 250-300whp to **** around my shop parking lot in
