Default Mini_FD '99 Flyin' Miata Turbo Build

I'm going to start this new build thread with pictures of the items I have already received for my future installation. I have bought a used\BNIB older style Flyin' Miata GT2560R turbo kit.

I also purchased a used Built by Reverant MegaSquirt 2v.3 ecu to run my system. My goals are low and efficient since this is my first turbo install and I'm daily driving my miata. Ive owned the car for 4 years now. My cherry is being popped. I have fiveo motorsports ev14 460cc plug and play injectors with a Walboro 195lph fuel pump.


Here is the first picture

Hard oil and water lines from Flyin' Miata along with an AEM digital boost gauge.

I have the silicone piping and Flyin' Miata intercooler on its way .
This is all I have for now. I might make a for sale thread for the older piping and intercooler. Just not sure how much it is worth for a fair price.

Keep you all updated and I hope I don't disappoint and looking forward to those who contribute on advice and help in the future.

I did a test fit and took pictures of what it will look like with moss miatas dual gauge pod.

I had that same boost and UEGO wideband gauge in the same a pillar pod on my 2000. The blinking lights drove me BONKERS and were clearly view-able from behind and outside the car at night.

They are nice gauges though

Our builds are almost identical ...that is, once I get mine started

I hope that the light doesn't bother me driving at night. They did have a tinted filter that reduces the leds down. Well just have to see. But I promise I won't let you down. I'll also check out your build thread.

I don't have a build thread up yet. At least, not a turbo one.

Looks pretty good other than maybe hardware? I've got my entire hotside assembled with OEM Nissan 8mm inconel studs n nuts. It seems like pretty solid stuff for a street car.

Your oil feed assembly appears to me missing the BSP to NPT adapter, oil T and a 90 fitting? I can get pics of mine if you are missing them (though they should be common enough.)

The first post has a pic of the hard oil and water lines. Could you verify we are talking about the same lines?

Your coolant and drain lines look fine, I was referring to the oil feed. Pic will make this easier:



The 1/8" BSPT goes into the block and the 7/16"x24 goes into the turbo. They want you to jam your stock 1/8" BSPT sender into the other side of the Tee, not sure I like that. I also have a steel Tee somewhere in the garage, I'm not wild about this brass one. Also, my oil feed fitting at the turbo is unrestricted if that counts for anything. I haven't run it yet so I guess I'll find out if I need one or not.

I'll probably get a new line made for the oil feed line but I believe the ss lines in the last pic was one of them I'm not completely sure. Note they were not part of the catch can lines.

Working now?

The smaller stainless line next to your catch can looks like the correct feed line, but I didn't see the other fittings. Don't forget to sleeve that thing in something to prevent it from sawing through everything in your engine bay.

Are you going to be running the FM one-piece silicone intercooler pipes?

I am, and I'll make a new feed line. What would I sleeve it with?

I always thought black was a good color for the Miata. My NA was black. I miss the color but don't miss washing it

The FM kit for the SS feed line includes some sections of rubber hose of some sort and clamps. I believe the intent is to split it and slip over the SS anywhere it comes in contact with anything behind the engine and on the drivers side framerail. While I'm sure its functional, it looks a bit hackneyed to me. I haven't figured out what to do about it yet to make it prettier. Plastic splitloom looks like crap so I might try some of the nylon "chinese finger trap" style expandable wire loom and rubber coated wire clamps to secure it along the firewall.

Want to do me a favor and measure the length on the aluminum section of your intercooler plumbing? The section right before the throttle body 90 silicone section. I think that's the ONE part I'm missing and I don't have everything installed yet to get a measurement. Pretty please?
