Default Newb Civic wagon owner with hopes of boost!!!!!!!

I am new to this forum but not to cars. I worked as a full time mechanic in a few different shops for almost 10 years the last 4 years were in a custom fab / normal shop. We did minor tuning turbo and S/C installs and custom exhaust and suspension with a good bit of stereo as well. I personally own a 91 civic wagon that currently has a "Super D" in it. It is a d16y8 block with d17 rotating assembly and a y8 head. Full exhaust intake and a mail order tune. I am working on tuning with BRE now. My other car is a 2JZ swapped miata it sounds crazy but it does exist for now I will just be trolling gathering info to boost my A6 block and see if I can't make a 200 whp daily. Here are a few pics of the wagon and the miata and a few vids of the miata as well. The miata is currently getting a new turbo, intake mani, exhaust, charge piping and a methanol kit so it will be down for a bit longer. Let the flaming begin. I would also like to ad on a small note I have used this website for lots of info in the past and love the cheap reliable builds that I see all the time. My miata not including the car since I have owned it for 7 years has only cost me about $2500 for the swap and not much more money to spend to be done.

First the wagon -









And the Miata -
Miata turbo next to size 12 shoe lol

Yea I am rebuilding my super D this week due to a lean condition burning up the rings. I am also getting all the parts togeather for an ITB set up. It should be a lot of fun until the turbo it ready. I wish mine was a rt4wd. They are sweet.

I still have it I have been stealing some parts off of it. I feel it was cheaper to buy another roller than take the time to fix that. If you need some parts let me know.

Next time I go up to the shop I will pull it off and see if it is still good. If so you can have it for the cost of shipping. Anything else you may need let me know and I will see if I have it
