Default Wisconsin noob says hi

Hi my name is Jim and I recently bought a 1995 base model Miata (power steering is the only option I think) with the intention of turbocharging it. Here's a pic of me at Miller Park in Milwaukee last Sunday autocrossing with the SCCA Milwaukee region.
Only mods so far are Tein S-tech springs,AGX's,FCM bumps,FM sways,NB top mounts,16X7 Konig w/Toyo T1S's and Magnaflow exhaust. I know I know the springs suck! They will be replaced soon with something stiffer.
I've been reading this site for a couple of months and after looking back through what seems like a gazillion posts I've decided to go with a Begi S system with MSPNP,clutch,exhaust, etc...... I might run E85 since it's readily available around here, but haven't really made up my mind about that.
I need to sell soom stuff before I start buying stuff so it might be a month or two before I get all the parts I need. I have a '91 I'm parting out and will probably post stuff for sale on Miata.net if anyone's interested.
I know there's someone from the Milwaukee area on here,can't remember his name. I sure would like a ride in your car! I'll be at Miller Park this Sunday with the WAI. Stop on over if you can.

That's all,
Jim

Great first post!
Ditch the power steering, you'll never miss it... plus makes turbo install way easier!
Be thinking about IC options... the Begi IC's make it easy, but building one through eBay is cheaper and you can make the DIY claim then.

Welcome Jim, good to see another member from Wisconsin (I think that makes 4 now lol). I'm in Racine, I assume you are in Milwaukee? I used to autoX with Milwaukee SCCA/WAI/TSSCC @ Miller Park but not much anymore, I mainly just run at the grove now.

Welcome! I'm finally home from school for the summer (Hubertus/Germantown). I've never done any sanctioned racing, but I'm hoping to do a HPDE by the end of summer.

BEGi-S + MSPnP is definitely a good way to go.
