Default What do all these Abreviations mean?

Hello all,

Im new to the forum and to the miata scene all together. I just picked up a really nice red 1990 with 70k on the clock only for $1500! I got a screamin deal and nows the time to show off the new ride. Being that ive come from BMW NA (ive owned two highly moded e30s and currently own an e46), im not familiar with all the tech terms and abreviations for parts. Could anyone direct me to a place that would list:

1. everything a blown 1990 miata would need including fuel/intake stuff
2. a place that lists all terms surrounding a turbo/supercharged setup?

Thanks for your patience as ive not fully learned where to search or what im even looking for...

Thanks and cheers,

Dan

Dan, I know the type of post you're looking for and we don't have one. Try hitting all the sticky's, including the DIY FAQ which should get you 90% up to speed.

You can always do a title search for an unknown term... the context of the post should help... and feel free to ask. There's also google. Just throw any acronym into a google search along with the word Miata.

Completely random, but did you know that Vanilla Ice has a show on the DIY network now? Apparently he's a general contractor. Hearing him talk at length about perrenials is possibly the funniest damn thing I've ever seen on television.
