Default One of the last NB's getting boosted

Greetings from Israel
I own a late 2004-built nb which came with the crappy H7 headlight design.
The car is with me for 4.5 years now and for the last year I run a megasquirt 3 basic from Rev with some n/a bolt ons.




A friend's FM2 build blew my mind and you can't go back sitting in your car afterwards without thinking about boosting it.
So a year later after that initial ride and here I am.
After much thinking I decided to go with the sr20 T25 that a lot of you guys here are using.
I'm more for mid range torque and usable power than top end.
The T25 flange will give room for a future upgrade to a 2560 if the power bug hits
Parts list of what I already have:
sr20 T25
FM piping kit
cxracing intercooler
FlowForce EV14 610cc injectors

Didn't want to spend 350$ on the fm intercooler, as good as it must be.
I measured my friend's fm2 cooler and came about the cxracing miata 19.5" intercooler to match the piping.


Few more bits and pieces like nxs boost controller and Abe's water lines









Checked for fitment but my ghetto begi reroute must go, rear thermostat reroute is in my plans



Still to buy:
FM stage 1 clutch
FM's NB diy turbo kit (mani/elbow/dp)
sadly won't be many diy in this thread as I'm the kind of guy who pays money for getting work done on his car
Updates to come.

Bought the FM clutch.
Still to buy is the diy turbo kit, gotta wait for the next paycheck.

eBay turbo flanges arrived



As well as cx intercooler, oem rad hose, EGR block-off from TSE, aluminum adapter for the intake and the bosch bypass valve



Also ordered 1.375" joiner and a 1.375">1" reducer from silicone intakes for the bov in order for it to fit the FM intake pipe.

I am going into more details in my blog if you would like to check it out -

Good stuff. Looks like you've done some nice research and are making some wise decisions. It's amazing how a little power really transforms these cars.

I was able to score a once in a lifetime deal on an nb diy turbo kit from FM and stage 8 locking nuts with FM inconel studs for just 640$ shipped!
Sometimes the 8-hour time difference between us works in my favor.
The ad was posted mid day and I pm'd and got the sale in 30 minutes time
Thanks Reed!

I also bought the MAC boost solenoid after realizing the nxs boost controller is not what I want in my build.
Anyone interested in a brand new nxs controller for cheap?
Also ordered Centric premium rear rotors and Stoptech rear street pads
I now ordered anything I need for the project, and waiting for some parts to arrive including the fm clutch.

Gave her a proper bath after weeks of rain and sandstorms. Shitty middle east weather for ya'.
Sporting a Mazdaspeed spoiler off of turbofan's part out
And I need to do something about that ugly exhaust. Anyone with a spare speed laying around?



And today I got these beauties for the rear.

This.
It should be pretty straightforward.
Today I got 99% of the parts I need



My silicone intakes adapters are a win. I hope the bosch bypass will be durable enough to hold 12-14 psi.

18 I'm referring to this page, Boosted Miata blog: The Parts - Part 1 he has a picture where his IC piping is running through the fender. I don't believe that's flyinmiata

I really hope this tiny thing works (As in I don't want to buy the FM intercooler).
Spray painted it for now.

I'm very jealous of your deal-finding ability. Was the $640 kit just the manifold, downpipe/elbow, and studs?

Yup, and the locking hardware.
It was exactly what I wanted and I was there to grab it quick. Rarely this happens I admit.
If you are patient enough you can find everything you need in the classifieds.

Today I installed the rear rotors and pads.
Forgot to take pictures during install, but nothing special there.





Car will be going in the shop after coming back from the Hungarian Grand Prix

Kinda wanted to put the car in the shop while I'm at vacation, but the guy is also on a holiday at the exact dates so a litte delay.

Budapest was amazing.




The hungaroring is beautiful but the race itself was just so-so. Still the event was great all around. Some nice moments in gp2 and porsche super cup.
And finally the car will get in the shop Tuesday next week!

Excuse my girly moment

Sadly there was a miscommunication with my mechanic.
Turns out he is on vacation this week.
So I had a free day today and got fm's pinky in and had the flywheel renewed at another guy's shop.
I hope finally to get the car in next week.
I already got me some electric bike for dirt cheap for the time the car is in the shop
