Default Where to begin


Hey everyone I'm Devin I have owned a 1990 miata na 1.6. I've owned my baby for about 3 1/2 years and I think it's about that time to boost it. I have pretty much everything for a bottom end rebuild. But the only thing that is stopping me it the ecu. Is there a way to chip flash the ecu or do I have to get a pnp?

Moral of the story is that your story is going to end very badly.

Well my rim I bought from some Mexican for 100$/w decide tires so I couldn't pass it up. My hat and skateboard just happens to end up in the picture haha.



And I'm not looking for much psi. I just want between 4-6 psi to start.

According to a spare boost gauge, i can blow about 5psi. For the low price of $5000 i'll come to your house and blow your throttle body.
