Default UK newbie here to learn

Hi guys, i've just joined up to learn more about tuning the Miata.

I'm 25 from Wales, i've always had a keen interest in cars and motorbikes and now i'm old enough i'm indulging a bit!

I currently own car-wise:

Peugeot 206 2.0 HDi
Toyota Hilux mk3 4x4 2.3D
Toyota Hilux mk2 2wd lowrider project
Volkswagen Golf 1.6 Driver which is currently being converted to a 2.0 16v ABF

If I do decide to buy a Miata i'll surely stick around

I've posted up a thread here: https://www.miataturbo.net/engine-performance-56/engine-swap-turbo-mk1-1-6i-60080/ but this is what i'm about at the moment:

I want to buy a Miata project for drifting and as a sports car for the summer and i've seen a nice example close-by, it's a Mk1 1990 1.6 MX5 (i'm from the UK).

I've driven the 1.8 and it was allot of fun but not quite powerful enough for me, so I was wondering if anyone in the UK produced a complete prefabbed turbo kit or if there was a nice engine swap I could do which would net me between 150-200 ft/lbs torque?
