Default Ultimate Lurker Accidentally buys turbo Miata and makes a first post.

Hi everyone, I have been browsing this forum for a good 3 years now. I bought my first rusted out welded crank SNC Miata in 2014 and have been ingesting all the information on this forum since then. My old rusty 90 is long gone, all of the good parts and panels stripped for my current build, now I have a rattle can black painted 92. I have been compiling all of the parts to turbo my 92 for over a year now. 60k mile 1.8 swap, 1.8 4.10 diff, Qmax coolant reroute (good quality stuff emilio). My next step was going to be an MS3 and eventually buy a TSE EFR kit and make a reliable 225-250whp daily to later build a block and turn the boost up. I had all of my maintenance done and everything put together to start tuning my 92. Everything was going great, I was following the advice of all of the major contributors here to a t. Last Wednesday everything changed...

I stumbled across a local TD04 MSPNP1 equipped Montego blue 95 with tons of extra stuff done that I needed to do to my clapped out 92. The owner wanted a very reasonable price and it is my favorite Miata color so I took the plunge. I drove the car home yesterday. I now own a boosted Miata and after bingeing on this forum for the past couple of years I am confident that I will be able to tune and maintain it myself. Anyway I won't keep you guys here any longer I just wanted to drop in and say Hi. I'll be starting a build thread when I get good pictures and whatnot.

(A couple of things I forgot the first time around)
My name is Dylan
I'm from the small town of Clanton AL
I'm 24 and married. (To a wife who supports my Miata/car addiction )
