    Default Up to my eyeballs in Miataness

    Thanks for the add. I bought a 95 a little over a year ago and have been rebuilding the thing ever since. Full suspension update and turbo addition. Finally got it roadworthyish and ready for a tune when I completely lost oil pressure and likely killed my motor. Just my luck. Looks like another extended period before I'll be back on the road. Currently weighing my options on the motor, but I've already got $13k invested into a $2k car so I'm not too excited about it. I had hoped to get some use out of the stock motor as I built up the parts for forged motor. I guess I'm now going straight to stage 5 of my build! punchout:

    First Miata. First time messing with a turbo. First time dealing with an aftermarket ECU. Little did I know! #FNG

    Welcome aboard. Turbo/ECU not easily done for the inexperienced, as you now know.
