a cheap turbo system is better than no turbo system right? so ill peice somthing together..if i break the diff il just replace it with a torsen then. i dont think its unheard of for my vlsd to hold 160hp for a while and if i break that its not like the whole car blows up.
i must say im a little disapointed in how all on this forum seem to like to discourage people..i think i will just look for a used deal on the solid basics for good parts the rest can go cheap for future upgrade....i guess i was just bored and wanted some suport...wasnt looking for here is exsactly how its done answers...i understand i will need to sorce deals and fab things....just thought out of everone on this forum someone had a good sucsess story i could read about with a starter build...but i guess everone here has a budjet to throw $5k+ at a time into a car....im not about to sell my other cars or bike to fund this project and i got to start somewhere.....
Dude... whats the issue?
There is some good info in this thread, ideas for parts and tuning and such.
Also mention of what parts to advoid.
Quit with the butt hurt, this is a fourm of guys taking what is viewd as a gay or chicks car and givin them some testosterone so they can go play with the pony cars.
No one said sell your bike or car or dump $5k into the build and have it done next week.
So take off your pastel pink polo shirt and peel the rainbow sticker of the back of the Miata and get to work.
If you look at any build thread, you will see that no two are excatly alike.
Spend a few bucks on some base parts like your mani, injectors, turbo and FMIC.
Crush a few beer cans on your head and smile.
