Default Turbo Noob from TX

Hello everyone
I'm Jorge and I live in Texas
I own a 1991 N/A NA lol

and I've been thinking it's time to start doing some research and boosting my beloved miata for it is too slow :S

I hope to piece together something that's reliable for daily driving and maybe some pulls here and there with friends.. I hope to spend less than maybe $1,500 dollars on parts (excluding fuel management. I've heard good things from the MSPnP)

Anyway, I'll leave now, and read some threads, but any tips, feedback are welcome

Welcome!

What part of TX?

Any more info on your vehicle? Mileage? Mods so far? More ideas for the future?

Do you own a cat ?

Welcome Jorge, from another fellow Texan! Will he be banned for flaunting the pooch but no kitty?
