Talking Time to introduce my self

Hello every one, to this forum here. I have been lurking here all day, and have ran into this site a few times. So I decided WTH might as well join the community . I have been reading stickies, posts, old posts, and I think I have answered a few of my questions.

I have owned 3 Miatas prior, and am on #4. Feel free to ask any questions, I will answer them to my best.

So pictures Miata #4, bought it for $600 with a bad engine. Rebuilt the engine, new clutch, new clutch hydraulics, cowl induction, all new hoses, filters, tune up, rings, bearings, and a 10/10 grind on the crank.

Welcome to the forum. Nice introduction.

How in the hell are we expected to remember the name you chose?

Did you renitride the crank, or leave it soft and vulnerable? Welcome. Be sure to PM Hustler with all your questions.

I would expect nothing less
I am working on a turbo as we speak. So pieces from here, some from there, and vola! So far all I have gotten is a free set of 1.8 injectors, I have a ways to go yet LOL.

unfortunately no, the crank was a patch job to begin with. I needed this car on the road fast, and it was draining my wallet faster than expected due to some issues. Now sitting under a tarp in my garage is a 1991 8 slot dampener engine. I am still thinking about what I want to do with it.

And from what I have read, I think it is best I do not PM Hustler.
