Thanks!
Probably the same as you, the 2560r. I was considering sourcing a 2860rgtx since their almost the same price, but I as well don't really have the funds for a built motor right now and the 2860 is just too much of a tease. I can always upgrade down the road later and recoupe some costs selling the 2560.

The goal is 230-240hp stock motor. I can only seem to flow about 210 on the stock ihi. Kinda expensive for a 20-30hp increase, but I figure the 2560 will give some better top end and be under less stress than maxing out the little IHI.

I was considering just going to BNR and having the stocker rebuilt and upgraded to a small 16g, that way I can retain my piping and stuff, put for the $1300 they want, mineswell just do the whole thing.

What do you run for a front swaybar? Do you run one in the rear?

Yes, stock IHI turbo.

Wow we really are in the same boat and are thinking the same things. Either we're both crazy or we're on to something. Savington recommends the 2871 vs 2860 but I don't know if that changes vs the GTX. It gives yuou a more headroom with minimal loss of spool.

Front sway: FM
Rear sway: stock MSM

Did the tip of the shaft break? Happen at Hallett?

Yep, end of my 3rd session Friday morning of Miatas@Hallett.

Shaft broke on the exhaust side. There's just a tiny bit of shaft play now



I think this turbine is totally salvageable, just need a file and bit of JB Weld

Fun read up until the broken turbo. Any idea what caused it?

That I did. Trying to decide if I want to wait 3 additional weeks to have it ceramic coated.

Installed some parts this weekend. Abe does some fantastic work, very impressed. Waiting on a few things to button it up, maybe next weekend it will be ready for a first start.

So much room around the turbo. Installation was a breeze.


I don't know how, but there is plenty of clearance around this big *** exhaust.







Lots of clearance everywhere...but here. The tip also get crushed slightly in transit, a lack of packaging no doubt contributed to the damage.

Hey that Turbo looks familiar

Looks good. The tip on my Artech exhaust was bent from shipping as well. Looked almost exactly like that. I straightened it with a few good hits from a ball peen hammer.

Abe offered to send an exhaust expander to fix the tip. That guy is seriously awesome.

I got pissed off and quit yesterday when I got to the oil drain. No way are the AN fittings going to fit, they run straight into the steering shaft. Not that it matters, I'd need some angled fittings anyway. Didn't realize just how short of a line I need.

Here's a shot with the 1/2" NPT to AN10 fitting installed.

Is that one v-band 90 piece to replace the axle-back with a turn down? And if so, what are you doing about the lack of hangers on the midpipe?

I just dealt with this. Check out the last couple posts in my build thread for how I fixed it. I ended up with push lock fittings because they were shorter.

Also doesn't the oil drain need to be pointed straight down?

Thanks, I might give that a try. Integrated AN10 fitting on the flange would also give me a little more room.

I've got a 90* AN fitting for the feed and it doesn't fit with the drain pointed straight down. Garrett says the oil drain can be clocked up to 35*

No need to cut things up, longer exhaust hangers will do the trick. The melted bits in the picture are from my old exhaust, before replacing rubber hangers with urethane.

FM sells a nice set of urethane "long" hangers, I think they are a bit too long for my use. May pickup another set somewhere between stock and the FM long ones, it hangs a bit too low for my liking. After I get it running that is. Ordered a box of parts to redo the oil feed and drain lines.
